Have you always wanted to play the famous links golf courses of Scotland? Did you think it was an impossible dream?
Well it isn't. And EWGA NYC can take you there. We are arranging a fantastic and fun trip to the home of golf this summer and you're invited. Here are the details.
When: July 21-28, 2018
Plan: Seven nights, six courses. We'll play Royal Dornoch, Castle Stuart, Royal Aberdeen, Cruden Bay, Brora and Nairn.
Cost: $3,235 covers your half of a double occupancy room, all greens fees, breakfasts, and transportation in Scotland. Half of this amount will be due when you sign up. The other half will be due within a couple of months.
- $704 additional for a single room
- Round-trip airfare
- Other meals
- Caddies/pull carts
We are planning to hold an informational call for those of you interested in this trip on Monday, March 19th at 7 p.m.
1. Can I really play these courses? How good do I have to be?
This trip is not for beginners. But these courses are very playable. Intermediate players who can keep up the pace of play will be fine.
2. Do I have to walk the courses?
Yes. If you have a medical need, a few riding carts may be available, but otherwise you should plan to walk. You can either rent a pull cart (trolley) at each course (a few pounds) or hire a caddy (45 pounds plus tip). Caddies can take 2 bags and be shared. Or, a foursome might take one caddie who handles 2 bags while the other 2 golfers use pull carts. The courses are seaside and very walkable.
3. How many people will there be on this trip?
We're aiming for 8. If there's a huge demand for spots, we might expand to 12.
We need to lock this in soon, so please tell us if you'd like to be a part of this trip of a lifetime. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday, March 15th.
