Golf fanatics can indulge in their love for the sport on a seven-night river cruise in Europe where they can play on four amazing courses.
And they get to tour Germany, Austria and Hungary as well.
But you’ll have to hurry. There are just a few cabins left.
The all-inclusive river cruise on the five-star Avalon Panorama from 10-17 July will include a hand-picked team of golf teaching professionals to give expert tuition on and off the course.
The first chance to pick up their clubs and play a round of golf is at Nuremberg’s Golf Club Am Habsberg, one of the top courses in Europe which remains largely undiscovered. Designed by Graham Marsh, the course features large undulating greens surrounded by closely mown areas where players have to contemplate whether to chip, pitch or putt.
Golfers can also look forward to playing at Passau’s Hartl Golf Resort in Germany with its lush greens and perfect fairways created by architect Berhard Langer.
Stone walls demarcate the greens, with small stone bridges over ditches and streams. There is also an array of ponds and flood plains to manoeuvre which require sheer precision.
In Vienna, golfers will be able to play at the Golf Club Adamstal located in the Alpine foothills. The course is a true jewel with attention to details which fascinates every golfer. The 27-hole course blends into the forest providing a peaceful and panoramic view. The club is one of the top courses in Austria.
In Budapest, golfers will play their fourth round at the Pannonia Golf and Country Club rated as number one course in Hungary. Nestled in the beautiful Mariavolgy Valley, the course has generous fairways, special bunkers and imaginatively shaped greens.
On days when they are not golfing, guests will be able to tour Regensburg in Germany, renowned for its 1300 historic buildings and Melk in Austria known for its magnificent Benedictine Abbey, one of Europe’s largest monasteries.
There are just five Grand Panorama Suite cabins left at the price of $8995 per golfer for the cruise and golf itinerary and $6995 pp for a non-golfer.
Guests will also be able to rent clubs for the trip, avoiding the hassle of lugging cumbersome golf bags around Europe, already 90 passengers have signed up. The cost of hiring clubs for the week is $175 per set and an additional $10 for an extra wedge.
Organised by the Golf Touring Company, guests who are flying in from long overseas flights have the choice of staying in a hotel at a special rate before boarding the river cruise in Nuremberg or when they disembark at Budapest. The hotels include Sofitel Munich Bayerpost Hotel at $345pp, Le Meridien Nuremberg at $175 pp and the Intercontinental Hotel Budapest at $175 pp. Breakfast is included in all three hotels. Transfers from Munich Airport to Nuremberg have also been arranged.
At the end of the cruise, golfers have the choice to be dropped off at the Intercontinental Budapest Hotel or at Budapest Airport.
