The 148th Open Cham­pi­onship will have its work cut out to im­prove upon its pre­de­ces­sor. But the event’s re­turn to Royal Portrush and North­ern Ire­land for the first time since 1951, to­gether with the es­corted tour re­cently re­leased by GolfS­elect, will surely help its cause.

The jour­ney will be­gin in Belfast, where you will in­dulge in two days of ac­tion at golf’s old­est and most in­ter­na­tional cham­pi­onship. Next, you will catch a ferry to the West Coast of Scot­land to play Royal Troon, Turn­berry and Prest­wick be­fore re­turn­ing to North­ern Ire­land to stay at the fa­mous Bush­mills Dis­tillery.

The ex­cit­ing itin­er­ary also in­cludes 18 holes at Royal Portrush in the week fol­low­ing The Open, as well as two games at the world-renowned Royal County Down while stay­ing at the Slieve Donard Ho­tel; one of Ire­land’s most pres­ti­gious prop­er­ties. Other cour­ses to be played in­clude: Royal Belfast, Port­stew­art and Western Gailes.

Non-golf­ing part­ners will be kept just as en­ter­tained with walk­ing tours, shop­ping tours, lo­cal cook­ing classes, cas­tle tours, dis­tillery tours and many other at­trac­tions.

Pack­ages start at £8,995.00 (twin share) and in­clude: 13 nights’ lux­ury ac­com­mo­da­tion, seven rounds of golf with forecad­die for each group, daily buf­fet break­fast at each ho­tel, tick­ets to Fri­day and Satur­day of the 148th Open Cham­pi­onship and trans­porta­tion. Non-golf­ing pack­ages start at £7,795.00 (twin share).
