Special Golf Events
We all dream of playing the great challenging and legendary golf courses around the world. On these travels we also have the opportunity to be exposed to the rich history, culture, cuisine, and people of each country.
In addition to traveling to play great golf you may have had on your “bucket list” attending one of the world’s top iconic golf tournament events just as a spectator to witness the world’s elite golfers play for a championship.
We can satisfy your passion for golf as a spectator, player or a combination of both. We will design a custom golf travel package that includes the perfect balance of play, touring, or just viewing the greatest golfers vie for a championship.
All our packages to these events will be custom designed to your wants and needs and your trip will be exciting, memorable and carefree.
Your custom tour will be designed based on the level of desired lodging and transportation, the number of day tickets for practice or competition rounds, level and amount of on-site hospitality, and additional touring, lodging, transportation and golf play desired pre or post tournament.

We will soon finalize our travel offerings to:
The 2018 Ryder Cup, featuring competition between the best of the European and US players, will be played in Paris the “romantic City of Lights” at “Le Golf National” the home of the French Open.
We will be offering many pre and post tours to other parts of France to include Normandy, Loire, Bordeaux, Cote de Azur and Provence. This will be an excellent opportunity to see the Ryder Cup, while visiting Paris and other iconic parts of France.
The 2019 British Open – Belfast, Northern Ireland will be a milestone event played at Royal Portrush near Belfast, as the only other time it was played in Northern Ireland was in 1951.
This course is situated on the beautiful North Antrim Causeway coast on a triangle of massive sand hills, and the “Royal” name comes from the ruins of the 13th century “Dunluce” castle.
Royal Portrush is listed on everyone’s list of top golf courses in Ireland and is among the top golf courses in the world.
This will be a historic location and we can combine this visit with pre and post play on other famous Irish courses in the Dublin area or in West or Southwest Ireland. Due to growing interest we have already tied up some lodging for this tour as Belfast and the surrounding area is limited on lodging so these spots, three years in advance, are filling up fast.
