Have you always dreamed of going to the US Masters? Or playing World Top 100 golf courses and capping off your visit by watching the Aussies in contention for the British Open?

The US Masters

The first time you go to the US Masters is really something special. Augusta National Golf Club is breath-taking and the Masters Tournament is not only one of golf’s biggest events, but it is one of the most famous sporting events in the world. Played in the first full week of April every year, there are very few events that create the emotion that The Masters does. Every golfer, whether professional or amateur, should experience this event at least once in their lifetime. If you do get the opportunity, it will undoubtedly leave an indelible impression that will be difficult to surpass.

The tickets, or ‘patron badges’ are they are called, are not easy to come by. In fact, Augusta National Golf Club is the only authorized ticket source and they have sold an undefined number of tickets to members of their Patrons list (which was last open to new members in 2000 and prior to that in the 1970s). So these tickets are as rare as hen’s teeth. And for this reason you really need to organise your US Masters Tour with a professional company who specialise in the US Masters.

Accommodation is another area that you need to carefully consider. Staying in Augusta itself is a great option. Accommodation within walking distance to the Augusta National Golf Club means easy access and no limitations to how long you spend out at the Tournament. There are options available to stay outside Augusta – around 30-60 minutes with no traffic, depending on the option. Traffic during the Masters can be quite intense, though, so these daily return trips can be quite tiresome and you can be restricted to limited shuttle times. In our mind, there is no better option than staying in the heart of Augusta, where all the action is.

The 2016 US Masters will be held from Monday 4th April to Sunday 10th April 2016.

Don’t miss your opportunity to see an Aussie win it LIVE in 2016, with the odds tipping in Jason Day’s favour.

The British Open


The Open Championship is the oldest of golf’s 4 Majors having first been played in 1860 at Prestwick Golf Club in Scotland. Today, The Open is played every July at one of the 10 venues on the current Open rotation which includes 5 courses in Scotland, 4 in England and Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland.

In 2016, The Open will be hosted on the West Coast of Scotland at Royal Troon.

One of the great things about going to The Open compared to other events is that you can actually play on all of the Open rota courses. Whether you want to see the West Coast of Scotland and play courses such as Turnberry and Troon, include games at Muirfield, Carnoustie and The Old Course while in the East, or head to the North West of England which is the home to Royal Liverpool, Royal Birkdale (the venue for the 2017 British Open) and Royal Lytham & St Annes. There are SO many options in the UK to play Top 100 courses, it’s an embarrassment of riches!
