Welcome To Dream Golf Week on Golf.com

July 11, 2014

Every golfer has his or her dream trip, that once-in-a-lifetime experience that lies out there beyond the horizon, on the other side of family responsibilities, work and budgets. For many of us, that longed-for experience is to play the courses on which the game was born: the storied links of the British Isles.

Dream Golf Week on Golf.com will bring that fantasy closer to reality with a comprehensive guide to the finest experiences links golf has to offer from the most trusted experts in the game.

Every day Golf Magazine Top 100 Teacher Top 100 Brady Riggs will be here to show you how to execute the shots you need for success on the links, from the wind-cheating driver to the artful escape from a cavernous pot bunker.

Of course, to put those tips to use, you need to get there. No one knows more about golf travel in the British Isles than Gordon Dalgleish, the president of premier tour company PerryGolf. On Wednesday, Gordon will host a live chat to answer all of your questions, from where to stay to how to score a coveted tee time on the Old Course in St. Andrews.

On his many trips to the British Isles, Travelin’ Joe Passov has played more links courses than he’s had sticky toffee pudding desserts. But his personal list of the best links experiences you can have will take you everywhere from Scotland to Nova Scotia, with stops in Mexico and Portugal to boot.

During the month of July golf fans will get up close with more royals than a paparazzi photographer. In addition to the Open Championship at Royal Liverpool, we’ll see action from Royal Birkdale (Women’s Open), Royal Porthcawl (Senior Open) and Royal Aberdeen (Scottish Open).

This is when we all start to dream anew about that oft-postponed trip, and just maybe make it happen.
