8 Nights | 4 Rounds | Saturday & Sunday at The Open | July 11 - 19

PerryGolf is pleased to offer this 8-night, 4-round, Escorted Tour, visiting Gleneagles, Edinburgh and The Highlands, highlighted by attendance to the final two rounds of The 150th Open at St Andrews. Before we travel to watch the game’s best battle the Old Course, we’ll play Royal Dornoch, the legendary home layout that inspired architect Donald Ross; the PGA Centenary and King’s courses at Gleneagles and Castle Stuart, recent host of the Scottish Open.

touring the Drummond Gardens and visiting great Scottish symbols, Stirling Castle and the Wallace Monument.

In Inverness, the Ballindalloch Castle is known as the “Pearl of the North,” while the entire group tastes the whisky at the Glenlivet Distillery. Also explore the beautiful Dunrobin Castle, looking out across the stunning North Sea.

The golf at Gleneagles is extraordinary. The PGA Centenary Course was designed by Jack Nicklaus for the 2014 Ryder Cup matches. The King’s Course is a beauty, designed by five-time Open champion James Braid in 1919 and offering stunning scenery in every direction. Traveling to Royal Dornoch is imperative for any Ross aficionado, to face the demanding inverted saucer greens created by Old Tom Morris. One round and it’s easy to understand why Dornoch is routinely ranked among the top 20 courses in the world. Castle Stuart, a Gil Hanse and Mark Parsinen design, opened in 2009 along the Moray Firth, which quickly entered the top 100 in the world rankings.

Our tour concludes with Grounds Passes to the final two rounds of The 150th Open at St. Andrews, on The Old Course, adored by Nicklaus and Jones, site of victories by Woods, Faldo, Ballesteros, Locke and the five-time champion Peter Thomson of Australia. Watch the world’s best golfers attack the Valley of Sin and try to conquer the Road Hole, immerse yourself in a town where golf and life are intertwined.

The accommodations are exceptional beginning with the Gleneagles Hotel, set on an 850-acre country estate; Ness Walk, which offers 48 bedrooms on the River Ness; and the Caledonian Waldorf Astoria, a symbol of Scotland’s premier hospitality for more than a century.

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.

TUESDAY, JULY 13: INVERNESS, SCOTLAND

GOLF: Today play the King’s Course at Gleneagles Hotel which opened in 1919 and is a shot maker’s paradise. Renowned architect and five-time Open champion James Braid intended to test every facet of a golfer’s skill set. With springy moorland turf underfoot in an idyllic setting featuring rock faced mountains to the north, lush green hills to the south and the peaks of the Trossachs and Ben Vorlich on the western horizon, the scenery is incomparable. The 5th hole, Het Girdle (Hot Pan) is a fantastic par-3 loaded with trouble until your shot safely reaches the green.

SIGHTSEEING: Non-Golfers enjoy a visit to Drummond Gardens near Crieff. Pass into the inner courtyard and reach the top of the terracing and the full extent and majesty of this garden is suddenly revealed. The dominant feature of the parterre design is a St Andrew´s Cross with the multiplex 17th century sundial at its centre. A strong north-south axis runs through the garden, down the impressive flight of steps to the sundial, through the classical archway and kitchen garden beyond, cutting a swathe through woodland before rising to the top of the opposing hillside. This idea of drawing the countryside into the garden is essentially French, however Drummond is an eclectic garden and also rooted firmly in the Italian style with its fountains, terracing, urns and statuary.

GOLF: Today play Royal Dornoch. The curving bay of the Dornoch Firth and its magnificent white broad beaches are backed by a narrow strip of softly contoured dune land rising in two distinctive levels, providing just enough room for parallel fairways. The ridges, hillocks, dunes and undulating links land have all the characteristics of the best of links courses, and most of the difficulties. Old Tom Morris was the architect responsible for extending the original 9 holes layout to 18 holes in 1886. He introduced the plateau greens which are the soul of the course, their uniqueness lies in their size and their inverted saucer shapes.

SIGHTSEEING: Non-Golfers enjoy a visit to Dunrobin Castle and the Falls of Shin. Dunrobin Castle, seat of the Earls and Dukes of Sutherland, this beautiful castle with a French influence sits looking out across the North Sea.

Golf Schedule

Gleneagles - King's Course image

The King's Course was the inspiration of James Braid, five time winner of The Open. It opened in 1919, representing the finest 'classical' golf course design. It is certainly one of the most beautiful and exhilarating places to play golf in the world. With the sweeping views from the tees all around, the rock-faced mountains to the north and the green hills to the south, and the peaks of the Trossachs and Ben Vorlich on the western horizon.

A modern layout featuring many strategic bunkers and vast putting surfaces with severe undulations from front-to-back and side-to-side. The course can stretch to over 7,088 yards from the tips and affords wonderful views of the Grampian Mountains and the Perthshire countryshire. The course was the host site for the 2014 Ryder Cup, as it returned to Scotland.

Royal Dornoch image

The curving bay of the Dornoch Firth and its magnificent white broad beaches are backed by a narrow strip of softly contoured dune land rising in two distinctive levels, providing just enough room for parallel fairways.

He introduced the plateau greens which are the soul of the course, their uniqueness lies in their size and their inverted saucer shapes.

Castle Stuart image
