2023 Pre- Solheim – France, Spain & Portugal Golf Cruise

Women’s Golf and Travel Concierge, in partnership with Perry Golf / Azamara, is pleased to bring you an exceptional 11 night, 4 round golf voyage from Southampton to Lisbon on board the outstanding 700 guest Azamara Journey.

Our itinerary will include six fabulous ports of call along the coastline of France, Northern Spain, and Northern Portugal. We will enjoy an extended two-day stay in iconic Bordeaux, an overnight stay in Lisbon, and a further three late evenings during our voyage, all in all, a great opportunity to more fully experience these destinations.

Our golf includes four rounds including the highly regarded Golf du Medoc, Uruburu, Estela, and Oitavos Dunes.

Azamara Journey, which serves as our perfect floating boutique hotel and clubhouse, is a mid-sized luxury vessel nimble enough to access smaller ports yet large enough to provide every amenity you would expect, from a choice of fine dining and live entertainment to a well-equipped gym and full-service spa.

Forty-six suites are available with English butler style service which routinely book early. Sailing schedules often include extended stays in the port plus the occasional overnight which allows for a truly immersive experience. Better still, these cruises are inclusive of a selection of beers, spirits, soft drinks, bottled water, specialty coffees plus wine with lunch and dinner along with gratuities for housekeeping, dining, and bar staff. Azamara also proudly boasts two unique signature events on each cruise – an AzAmazing Evening℠ and the White Night party – complimentary to all guests and consistently well received.

Every aspect of the golf program is fully managed for you onboard and ashore. Your clubs will be ready and waiting at each venue. Tee times and pairings are arranged and posted in advance. A convenient transportation schedule affords suitable time to warm up at the range and to make the almost inevitable pro shop merchandise purchase. Carts are always included, subject to availability. Friendly competition is staged at a selected course, with prizes awarded at our farewell gathering. A snack lunch is included on-course plus an open bar operates in the clubhouse at the conclusion of the round. Our typical guest list which brings together like-minded individuals generally numbers between 40 and 50, with new friendships invariably formed during each cruise. Many guests are golfing couples but an equal number are golfers traveling with a non-golfing spouse. Specially arranged onboard golf group social functions, to which all accompanying non-golfing spouses are most warmly welcomed, further enhances the club-like environment. The award-winning Azamara Shore Excursions® program, offering a wide variety of off-ship excursions, also caters beautifully to our non-golfing guests during days when our golfing excursions are underway.

The “2023 Pre-Solheim Cup France, Spain & Portugal Golf Cruise” is a genuinely full-featured vacation and a special opportunity to enjoy yourself in the company of like-minded new friends!
