Baltic Sea Golf Cruise 2018

 

Itinerary

Wednesday 8 August

Embark on the Azamara Journey this afternoon in Copenhagen. Welcome cocktails & an evening briefing will occur once all are aboard.

 

Thursday 9 August

You will arrive into Berlin this morning, a spectacular city in every sens of the word. Home to the impressive Brandenburg Gate & Reichstag buidling, Berlin has plenty to offer in terms of bars & restaurants. Take a walking tour from one of the many, well-informed, guides will teach about WWII & the Cold War.

The golfing begins today at Winston Links. This highly acclaimed new course opened in 2011 & was quickly declared Germany’s best course the same year. It was styled to match that of a British course, featuring undulating fairways, hard greens & deep swales. Furthermore, 30 foot high dunes & tricky bunkers are littered throughout to keep you constantly challenged. Please note that this is a waling course & does not offer a caddie service. Pull carts are available & included with this package.

 

Friday 10 August

The day is spent at sea, with arrival into Gdansk scheduled for the late evening.

 

Saturday 11 August

Enjoy a full day in Gdansk, today. Located on the Baltic coast of Poland, Gdansk was mostly destroyed in the War, but has rebuilt itself among what is left. Relax in a beer garden or restaurant along the beautiful coastline to take in the full effect of the Baltic Sea.

 

Sunday 12 August

A full day at sea. No golf, no sightseeing, no worries! Enjoy the ship & share in the delights that are on board.

 

Monday 13 August

Arrive into Tallinn, Estonia, today. You can visit St Olav’s church (one time tallest building in the world) & pull up a chair at a cafe in the charming town square.

The golfing continues at the Estonian Golf & Country Club. Opened in 2005, it has become a staple in Golf World Magazine’s top 100 European Courses. The locals say that when God created this coast line, he must have been a golfer, such is the harmony with which the course winds its way along the Baltic Coast. Please note that there are only a limited number of golf carts available & will be allocated on a “most need” basis. This is an easy walking course & pull carts are provided for all walking guests.

 

Tuesday 14 August

Arrive into St Petersburg, one of the world’s most beautiful cities & certainly a destination on all bucket-lists. Its architecture is lavish, opulent & rich. From golden-domed churches, to elegant palaces, you are sure to be amazed at every turn. Do not fear about trying to squeeze everything into this day as you have 2 more glorious days ahead.

 

Wednesday 15 August

Today, the golf will be at Gorki Golf Club, the first & only championship golf course in the northwest of Russia. Fully opened in September 2015, it is constructed to the highest possible standard, complete with a two-storied clubhouse. A day to remember is assured. Please note that there are only a limited number of golf carts available & will be allocated on a “most need” basis. This is an easy walking course & pull carts are provided for all walking guests.

 

Thursday 16 August

A final day in St Petersburg to enjoy as you see fit. Guests can tick off the all major sights missed when they arrived into St Petersburg.

 

Friday 17 August

Arrival into Helsinki this morning, with its beautiful blend of modern & traditional architecture. Classic Russian domed churches share the stage with classic Nordic minimalism & Helsinki has a large concentration of Art Nouveau buildings.

Your golf today will be played at Hirsala Golf Club, set among classic Finnish forest land. It is recognised by the Golf Environmental Organisation to preserve the biodiversity of the area. Moral golfing!

 

Saturday 18 August

Arrival into Stockholm today where you will be met with modern Scandinavian architecture with fairytale palaces. Two thirds of Stockholm is devoted to green space & waterways, meaning that there is lots of room to breathe & enjoy the scenery during this picturesque time of year.

Your final round of golf on your trip will take place at Bro Hof Slott GC Stadium Course. Opening in 2007 & sitting on the spectacular grounds on the edge of Lake Malaren, this course is judged to be Sweden’s best & 54th best course in the world. Notable tournaments have seen Lee Westwood claim the 2013 Nordic Masters.
