There’s always a degree of interest, and some envy, when one returns from a round in some of the loveliest ports in Europe! In May 2017, Trendsetter is hosting a golf tour as part of a luxury 5 star cruise aboard Silver Wind, an intimate, all-inclusive ship with only 296 passengers. The 15-day itinerary, sailing from Monte Carlo to Southampton, includes 15 port days in France, Spain and Portugal, with long days ashore perfect for sightseeing and golf. Accordingly we’ve arranged possible golf on 10 of these days, at the best available golf courses within a comfortable driving distance. Specifically, our courses are judged to be among the leading golf courses in their region. They include Real Club de Golf El Prat in Barcelona, a recent venue for the Spanish Open, and Onyria Palmares, one of the best three courses in Portugal. Your golf has been structured at a price below what you could organise independently and is presented as a value proposition. If you consider too much golf is on offer, do not fret for you can choose as little or as much golf as fits your preference – all with an equitable price adjustment. Furthermore, if your partner is not a golfer, each port promises an array of exciting shore excursions to ensure an equally enjoyable cruise experience. It is totally acceptable should you choose to play 4 or 5 games at your preferred ports and join your partner on Silversea’s shore excursions at the remaining ports. A typical golf day includes coach transfers, a fun round followed by daily prizes and then a return to the ship, to allow free time for sightseeing. Both cart and walking golf are available, the latter beneficial in keeping at bay the inevitable weight gain from the gourmet cuisine! Camaraderie is guaranteed, as is having an instant bunch of friends to ensure you enjoy your cruise even more, be that for cocktails in the evening or sharing dinner on a particular night. The cruise starts in Monte Carlo (Monaco), a beautiful city worth a few nights stay prior – stay 3 and enjoy a complimentary helicopter transfer from Nice airport, a thrilling way to commence what will be a terrific journey. We end our cruise in Southampton, the gateway to myriad other wonderful golf courses should you wish to continue playing!

At the time, McGinley and co. kept quiet, partly as the Europeans were still basking in an emphatic victory and partly to avoid sticking in a knife where plenty of wounds already existed. However, on the dawn of their latest defence, McGinley’s recent comments reaffirm the confidence still enveloping European golf. So either result this weekend stands to fuel the existing psyches. An American victory renews hope while validating the task force process, Love’s captaincy and the value of several team members. Another victory by Europe, however, adds a further layer of potency to their side and has the US hierarchy searching for yet another drawing board. There are fewer than 58 hours between the first swing of Friday morning’s opening foursomes match and the final putt (or concession) in singles on Sunday evening. In contrast to the actual event’s sprint-like brevity, for the vanquished squad there’s a sense the next biennial will feel far longer than a mere two years. E
