in 2001. The hotel offers panoramic views of the River Tay estuary, the North Sea, the Fife countryside and the medieval skyline of St Andrews, while also providing amenities such as a luxurious Spa, 18-metre pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room.

Become acquainted with this charming town amid the bustle of The Open, visiting St Andrews Cathedral or walking the campus of St Andrews University, one of Britain’s most prestigious universities. The non-golfers in our party will travel by train for a day in Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, where the Old Town offers history and the New Town promises shopping, dining and bars. Back in St Andrews have a pint at the Jigger Inn or the Dunvegan, wind along the cobbled streets and peruse the many shops in a town that dates to medieval times.

The golf is diverse and spectacular. Carnoustie has earned its reputation as the most demanding links in The Open rota. Francesco Molinari used flawless golf to outlast Tiger Woods and other contenders in 2018. Ben Hogan, Gary Player and Tom Watson won the championship here as well. Jean Van de Velde squandered his chance in 1999 on the 72nd hole. The magnificent Kings Course of Gleneagles Hotel, a James Braid classic, is set in the beautiful Perthshire Hills. Dumbarnie Links, set to open in spring 2020, is Scotland’s newest links layout, delivering panoramic views of the Firth of Forth. The Torrance Course was remodeled in 2009 and has played host to the European Seniors Scottish Open and final qualifying for The Open.

The Old Course at St Andrews is playing host to The Open for the 30th time. Through the years, the great champions from each era have emerged with the Claret Jug on the venerable layout. After a rocky start, Bobby Jones fell in love with the course and the town on his way to victory in 1927. Sam Snead snagged the title in 1946. Bobby Locke and Peter Thomson won here and the two best players of the modern era - Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods - claimed The Open four times combined at St Andrews.

If you enjoy combining your love of golf with a passion for travel, you’ll find a relaxing and highly rewarding experience on this Escorted Tour for a party of 20 to 30 guests. Every aspect is fully managed from the handling of your luggage and equipment to hotel and golf course check ins. Various meals, guided sightseeing, carts / caddies, local taxes, service charges and gratuities (excluding caddies) are included in addition to sandwiches, snacks plus an open bar for beer and wine during our time at each of the golf courses. Best of all, this PerryGolf vacation promises an ideal opportunity to join a group of like-minded new friends.

The elegant, ivy-clad buildings and delightful quadrangles and gardens have seen a procession of famous graduates such as Prince William. One of the top universities in Britain, St Andrews is often compared to Oxford and Cambridge for its defining presence and the collegiate feel it gives to the town.

A spectacular course incorporating cliff-edge holes and stunning views over the North Sea and the medieval skyline of historic St Andrews. The course is in the style of a Scottish Links, after receiving a major refurbishment that allowed it to reopen in July 2009, with new revetted bunkering, mounding and improved routing.

Dumbarnie Links image

Dumbarnie Links is one of Scotland’s newest links courses opened in 2020.  Located 9 miles south of St Andrews, the layout plays over 345 acres, part of the 5,000-acre Balcarres Estate held by Lord Anthony Balniel and his family since the 16th century.  Designed by Clive Clark, a member of the 1973 Great Britain and Ireland Ryder Cup team, the site is highlighted by a mile and a half of sea frontage featuring panoramic views over the Firth of Forth.  Its dual elevations, which are connected by a flowing escarpment, provide a number of elevated tees where holes play directly towards the sea. The design incorporates three potentially drivable par-4s along with several holes that present tempting risk/reward opportunities.  This course is designed to inspire rather than intimidate golfers.  Total yardage varies from 5,300 to 6,900 yards.

Carnoustie image

The first record of golf played on this links land dates to 1527.  In 1842, a 10-hole course was designed by Alan Robertson followed by an 18-hole course by Old Tom Morris in 1857.  James Braid extended the layout in 1926 which is essentially the links found today. While it is relatively flat, Carnoustie is exposed to the elements. A combination of length and accuracy are required as golfers face narrow corridors from the tee while approach shots demand precision to greens heavily guarded by steep bunkers and burns. Arguably the toughest finishing holes in championship golf are found here highlighted by the par-4, 476 yard 14th and the 245 yard par-3 16th. Ben Hogan won The 82nd Open at Carnoustie in 1953. Tom Watson and Gary Player also hoisted the Claret Jug here as has Padraig Harrington and most recently Francesco Molinari in 2018. 

Gleneagles - King's Course image

The King's Course at Gleneagles was the inspiration of James Braid, five-time winner of The Open. It opened in 1919, representing the finest 'classical' golf course design. In 1921 the course hosted the inaugural, albeit informal Ryder Cup between Great Britain and the United States.  It is certainly one of the most beautiful places in the world to play golf with.  sweeping views of the rock-faced mountains to the north and the green hills to the south, plus the peaks of the Trossachs and Ben Vorlich on the western horizon. The King’s Course has hosted an impressive list of important events ranging from the 100th Scottish PGA Championship to the Curtis Cup and Scottish Open.
