British Open & Ryder Cup Golf Courses
Of the four “Major” Golf Championships, none can boast the history, grandeur and sheer majesty of the 156 year-old, British Open. This is golf’s undisputed event of the year; a celebration of golfing excellence and the ultimate examination of the game’s most accomplished players, each battling for international glory over the world’s most challenging layouts.
The elite listing of just 9 British links courses that alternate hosting each year’s Open might be the golfing world’s most exclusive “club”. In 2017 Royal Birkdale Course, one of the greatest links courses in England, will host the 146th British Open.
The thrills and excitement The Open always provides are never greater than when Royal Birkdale, the toughest course on the British Open circuit, is the stage, making 2017 an ideal year to be there and savor golf’s most unique experience, in person.

National golf pride comes to the forefront every two years, when the top touring pros of the United States take on the best of European players, in the bi-annual, Ryder Cup Tournament.
Since the very first Ryder Cup was held at Worcester, Massachusetts, in 1927, many European golf clubs have had the honor of hosting the tournament, but only Ireland’s K-Club (2006) and Spain’s Valderrama (1997) have been outside of the United Kingdom.

British Open Private Tours
If you have a group of at least four or more and our pre-set escorted tours to The Open are not quite what you were looking for, we would be delighted to tailor a VIP private escorted tour, exclusively for your group. We can provide as much or as little golf as the golfers in your group may require and escorted sightseeing for the non-golfers during golfing hours. If you wish we can arrange some special dinners, perhaps a Scotch whisky tasting at a distillery, or some entertainment or a myriad of other features that will make this tour exclusively yours.
