If watching the 2022 Open Championship at St. Andrews has you yearning to not only play links golf but also to see the world’s best competing in person, Perry Golf, a company that arranges international golf tours, has an epic itinerary available for 2023.
Have you ever considered a golf cruise? PerryGolf’s 2023 British Isles Golf Cruise is truly one for the books. The 12-night journey begins in Dublin, Ireland — not a British Isle, but that’s where you’re headed. Attendees will board a boutique Azamara vessel on July 20, 2023. The ship is smaller and more intimate than many of its Carnival or Royal Caribbean cousins, and accommodates less than 700 guests.
Stops on the cruise include Liverpool, where you’ll enjoy grounds tickets to the Open at Royal Liverpool on Saturday and Sunday, followed by the Isle of Man, Belfast, Glasgow, Invergordon, Dundee and Edinburgh, where you’ll disembark on August 1, 2023.
The golf itinerary includes up to six rounds, depending on your selected package, and the courses on offer are spectacular: The K Club or Portmarnock Links in Ireland, Royal County Down or Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland, and Turnberry or Prestwick, Royal Dornoch or Castle Stuart, Dunbarnie or Kingsbarns, and PGA Centenary or King’s Course in Scotland.
(Check out where all these courses rank on GOLF’s recently released list of the Top 100 Courses in the UK and Ireland.)
An interior stateroom on the ship, inclusive of on-board meals, starts at $6,100 and the six rounds of golf, Open attendance and access to sightseeing destinations (of which there is at least one in each port) add an additional $5,595.
According to PerryGolf, the trip is already 60 percent booked, so interested attendees should book ASAP.
