PerryGolf Offers Floating Ryder Cup Program

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

WILMINGTON, N.C. – After the U.S.A. team wrested the Ryder Cup away from the Europeans to end nearly a decade of dominance in the biennial event, all eyes turn toward Wales, the quaint British Isles nation two hours from London that will host its first Ryder Cup in 2010. For what many believe is the most dramatic and intense of all sporting events, PerryGolf offers an opportunity to see the Ryder Cup and enjoy accommodations on the 226-guest Le Diamant, which will anchor at Newport, seven miles from Celtic Manor Resort, site of the 38th Ryder Cup matches.

Guests who want to experience links-style golf for themselves prior to the start of the Ryder Cup can opt to include three rounds on some of Scotland’s and Ireland’s top courses.

The Le Diamant offers a combination of comfort and convenience. Spacious outside cabins (several with private balconies) include private baths and flat-screen televisions. Breakfast, lunch and dinner onboard each day are inclusive, as is shuttle service to and from Celtic Manor.

Scotland’s Prestwick, Ailsa, Western Gailes, Carnoustie and Kingsbarns and Ireland’s Portmarnock, Royal Dublin and the Island Golf Club are among the courses guests can choose to play as an optional tour in the days leading up to the Ryder Cup, Oct. 1-3, 2010.
