nearby Royals that are fixtures in The Open rota. Shop on Lord Street, stroll down the second longest pier in England, dine in one of the many excellent restaurants. In Liverpool, walk in The Beatles’ footsteps, tour the interesting cathedrals and museums, visit Albert Dock’s popular attractions. Next we spend two nights in Turnberry to enjoy this world-class resort along with two alluring castles and Dumfries House, a stately manor and one of the country’s best kept secrets. Three nights in Scotland’s capital of Edinburgh will allow a generous opportunity to experience the blending of worlds old and new.

The golf is unforgettable. These great links are among the best in the world and have provided indelible images from the game’s oldest championship.

Jordan Spieth’s late charge secured his Claret Jug in 2017 at Royal Birkdale, which has been the most regular venue other than St Andrews since it first played host in 1954. Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy claimed the title the last two times the championship was held at Royal Liverpool, which is often referred to as Hoylake. The layout at Royal Troon took its current form in 1888. The delicate 8th, the “Postage Stamp” is one of the world’s signature par-3s. Henrik Stenson outdueled Phil Mickelson in a battle for the ages there in 2016 on what’s considered a links beyond compare. Of course, Tom Watson and Turnberry are synonymous. The five-time Open champion outlasted the great Jack Nicklaus in their “Duel in the Sun” in 1977 and then, at age 59, lost in heart-breaking fashion to Stewart Cink in 2009. The course reopened in 2016 after an extensive renovation that married the links with the sea.

Our tour includes grounds passes to the Saturday and Sunday rounds of The 150th Open at St Andrews, on The Old Course, adored by Nicklaus and Jones, home 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, become immersed in a town where golf and life are intertwined.

Our accommodations are exquisite, from our start at The Vincent, a boutique hotel on Lord Street in Southport to the Trump Turnberry, a Luxury Collection Resort to The Caledonian, a recently renovated hub of Scottish 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.

Important Information

Golf Handicap Limit: The golf courses we play around the world offer varying challenges. Players often require to be of a certain standard to properly and fully experience them in the company of likeminded fellow golfers. We therefore set a maximum permitted golf handicap to participate on our tours and cruises; The maximums are 28 for men and 36 for ladies.

Golf Courses: The included list may be subject to change in the event of any club accepting any conflicting national or international event, or for any other reason. Should such a situation occur, PerryGolf will endeavour to book a course of comparable standard, and all booked guests would be notified of the change and replacement venue at the earliest opportunity.
