Golf Sporting Events
Golf is considered to be one of the best spectator sport, as there is no other sport where you can get so up close and personal with the world’s best players. Standing just feet away you can hear them discussing their next shot, cracking jokes with their caddy – an experience you cannot get from watching TV at home!
The major US golfing events include the US Masters in April, the US Open in June or how about the new favourite, the Phoenix Open in Arizona. Taking place in January 2019 nothing compares with the atmosphere of this golfing event which is becoming more popular year on year and is becoming known as the greatest show on grass. Held in Scottsdale Arizona, an area home to some of the best desert golf courses in the world, its exuberant atmosphere brings out the best out of the world’s best with the 16th hole one of the most famous in modern golf. Our Travel Partner, ITC Sports Travel have an ideal package to enable you to experience this memorable golfing event.
The US Masters is one of the most prestigious golf events in the world. It is one of the four major championships in professional golf and is scheduled for the first week of April each year. The Masters is different to any other major in that it is held at the same location every year – Augusta National Golf Club, Georgia – one of the most beautiful courses in the world. It is rich in tradition and most recognisable by the famous green jacket, which is awarded to each winner.
The 2018 US Open Championship is being held in June at the Shinnecock Hills Golf Club, in Southampton, N.Y., one of the five founding clubs of the USGA, which will host its fifth U.S. Open Championship in June 2018. Next year it will be held from the 13th to 16th June at Pebble Beach, California and there are few places in the world that can match the beauty of this picturesque Monterey Peninsula venue.
Then there is the excitement of the historic Ryder Cup, which is taking place from the 28th to the 30th September 2018 on the spectacular L’Albatros course of Le Golf National in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, a suburb southwest of Paris.
The tournament is one of the biggest events in world of sport with 12 of the top American golfers taking on 12 of the best European names, before the winner is crowned Ryder Cup Champion for the following two years. Be there to witness world class golf where Team Europe will be determined to do battle on home soil to win back the cup from Team USA.
Whichever Home Nation you support you will experience the wonderful atmosphere of this most popular spectator sport as we can offer you a trip that is made to suit your requirements.
The Six Nations is a traditional sporting highlight of early springtime, and where better to spend an indulgent weekend at that time of year than in one of Europe’s favourite cities: Paris or Rome?
Sevens rugby is fast becoming the most popular way of experiencing a quality rugby holiday in warmer climes. The World Tour now features eight venues from the legendary Hong Kong to the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas including this years’ San Francisco World Cup Sevens which takes place in July and our Travel Partner, ITC Sports Travel, has a special package tour to this event.
The rugby connoisseur can also enjoy a choice of complete travel packages that include premium match tickets as standard. For partners who are not necessarily lovers of rugby, we will be delighted to organise an indulgent spa treatment or additional excursions to ensure you make the most of your visit. A perfect sporting holiday for everyone!
The Formula One calendar is something of a showcase for the world’s most sought after holidays and tour destinations. The chic European cities of Barcelona, Monaco and Milan – exotic Malaysia, China and Japan and the Middle Eastern opulence of Bahrain and Abu Dhabi all offer exciting destinations to choose from.
Whilst Monaco is best known for the glamour and prestige surrounding this world-famous sporting spectacle, Singapore’s dramatic street race takes place at night, providing captivating city views.
The beauty of the street circuits is that you can get up close and personal to the racing action giving an unique and breathtaking experience.
With races in such a wide variety of countries, ITC Sports Travel’s experienced team of luxury travel specialists really comes into its own, allowing you to have complete confidence in the itinerary and travel arrangements created for you such as the Singapore Grand Prix 2018 taking place in September and the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2018 in November.
In addition, their contacts within F1 give us the flexibility to offer you not only grandstand tickets but also the cream of the crop when it comes to race viewing. Available for both qualifying and race days, hospitality features gourmet food, fine wines and Champagne. But most prized of all is the pit lane walkabout, which grants access to the inner sanctum of Formula One a matter of hours before a Grand Prix.
