Golf Getaway Series: Best Courses to Travel to by Boat

Golf Getaway Series: Best Courses to Travel to by Boat
Posted: Apr 28, 2017

Last week we teed up our Golf Getaway Series with a look at the Best Courses to Travel to by Land. This week, we're hitting cruise control because if luxury limos just don’t tick all the boxes when it comes to your dream golfing tour, then Kalos Golf may have the answer. In 1994, the California-based company introduced the idea of the golf cruise – and now offers a host of incredible ocean-going adventures to some of the world’s most premium courses, from the Danube River and the Iberian Peninsula to South Africa and the mystical Americas.

Kicking off the pick of this year’s Kalos itinerary a little closer to home is their tour of the Canadian Maritimes aboard the impressive Silver Explorer, the member of the Kalos fleet designed with the navigation of secluded waters in mind. On the agenda are the Highlands Links, Cabot Links, Cabot Cliffs, Fox Harb’r and Crowbush Cove courses, with each fairway merging seamlessly with the rugged scenery of the islands. 

But while the resorts may be remote, the Silver Explorer ensures you arrive in the utmost style. With an ocean-view suite, in-suite bar and butler, you’ll be able to relax between each tee time, and the on-board menus – inspired by the gastronomical invention of London’s Relais & Chateaux – ensure you’ll be raring to go as soon as you arrive. Spacious decks and panoramic windows allow guests to get an unrivalled view of their pristine surroundings, while the fleet of smaller Zodiac craft and a dedicated Expedition Team mean you’ll be able to visit any location you desire along the way, no matter how far off the beaten path.

The Canadian Maritimes tour will take place from September 13th-24th this year, with prices starting from $14,853 CAD per person.



If your quest for great golfing necessitates traversing the Atlantic, then Kalos has that covered too. Two of the more impressive European adventures on offer are the Riviera and Bordeaux Golf & Wine cruises. The former of these whisks guests away to some of the continent’s most coveted destinations, with Cannes, Monte Carlo, St Tropez and even Lake Como all available to visit, where you and your party can enjoy the best courses on offer along the stunning, sun-soaked coastlines of France, Italy, Sardinia and Corsica. 

Topping off this unique expedition through a selection of Europe’s beauty spots is the chance to travel between courses aboard the Sea Cloud II. It is the most exclusive ship with space for just 94 passengers on board, but it is perhaps the most striking of the Kalos fleet. With billowing white sails and a marble and wood interior design, the craft is sure to add a whole new element of traditional seafaring elegance to your journey around the Riviera. This expedition takes place from September 15th-25th. Prices start at $11,063 CAD per passenger.



Some 700km-plus away, on the opposite coast, the Bordeaux Golf & Wine tour explores one of Europe’s most iconic winemaking regions. Passing through Bordeaux, Cadillac, Chateau de Vigiers and Biarritz, this expedition ends in San Sebastian in an effortless combination of culture and golf. Aboard the 74-cabin AmaDolce, guests can take full advantage of the vessel’s numerous French balconies to drink in their stunning surroundings – as well as the region’s world-famous vintages. This tour takes place from May 14th-25th and costs around $12,000 CAD per person.

Of course, the game of golf isn’t just confined to Europe and America – and Kalos caters for those wishing to go even further afield with an expedition to one of the game’s most remarkable locations: the New Zealand Golf Tour brings together the varied landscapes of both islands – from fjords to rainforests; mountains to farmland – while also giving guests the opportunity to tee off at a wide selection of Oceania’s prized courses.



Included in the itinerary are Queenstown, Jack’s Point Golf Course, The Hills Golf Club, Napier, Keri, Cape Kidnappers and Kauri Cliffs. The latter two of these provided the backdrop for the 2008 and 2009 Kiwi Challenge, the nation’s PGA Tour Challenge which featured four of the top PGA players under the age of 30. There’s even an option to extend your tour to neighbouring Australia and Tasmania if you so desire. This tour runs from November 27th to December 6th – prices start at $17,971 CAD per person.



However, Kalos’ most recent addition to the expeditions available may well be its most impressive. The Best of South America Golf Tour spans a staggering seven destinations including Barbados, Peru, Chile, Argentina, Brazil and the Dominican Republic. Featuring some of the finest courses in the Americas – if not the world – this 20-day trip includes everything from the sun-kissed exclusivity of Sandy Lane, pride of the Caribbean’s golfers, to Rio’s Olympic Course and Olivos, Argentina’s number one course without compare.



Guests are invited aboard a custom-configured Boeing 757 when travelling between destinations, and while the proposition of golfing among some of the world’s most verdant and tropical locations is attractive to say the least, culturally, too, the South American surroundings provide a rich wealth of sites in which to indulge – not least a guided tour of Peru’s iconic Machu Picchu, the 15th-century Inca citadel which stands on a mountain ridge 2,430 metres above the Sacred Valley.




This un-missable opportunity takes place from October 1st-20th, with prices starting at around $125,833 CAD per person. With the effortless blend of South American history, lush landscapes and quality courses on offer, this tour undoubtedly lays a heavy claim to the title of the world’s most unique golfing holiday.
