You Don't Need to be an Executive to Receive Executive Health Care

"I have to make an appointment to have my prescription refilled? Why can't I talk to my doctor over the phone? I'm sick on vacation, I need some help!"

These were the common questions and concerns we were hearing from our patients. Well, we listened and as a result developed our Executive Medical Program. We took all the concerns our patients were having and created a program geared towards saving time while offering preventative healthcare.

Golf Getaway Series: Best Courses to Travel to by Land

Golf Getaway Series: Best Courses to Travel to by Land
Posted: Apr 21, 2017
It seems these days that moments of peace and quiet are increasingly hard to find. One place, however, continues to eschew the 21st century tradition for a breakneck pace of life to remain a lush oasis in an increasingly mechanized world: the golf course. 

Be it surrounded by acres of bountiful woodland or dotted with incredible natural landmarks in a far-off corner of the globe, the golf course has continued to provide a space in which to unwind over 18 holes in relative intimacy.

Global golf has steadfastly marched on to new heights of luxury. The following companies are ready and willing to whisk you away to the most beautiful courses the world has to offer – including those regularly trod by the cleat-heeled feet of the crème de la crème of the professional game. 

With five-star hotels, private travel and quality tuition on hand, these operators are changing the face of the golf holiday landscape and providing fans of the game with hitherto unprecedented access to the courses of champions – and the bespoke sporting vacation of a lifetime. 

From the sprawling courses of British Columbia to the site of Captain Cook’s original Australian landing, these companies are ever-ready to whisk you away to the most inspiring destinations in your quest for the perfect game. From helicopter travel between courses to wine tasting along the way, they’ve got every aspect covered. In fact, the only concerns you’ll be having when it comes to playing your dream greens will be: when, where and which club?

If you’re looking to enjoy all the top golfing locations that Canada and its neighbouring nations have to offer, Luxury Golf Escapes would be an excellent place to start. This company provides a host of tours that cover eastern and western Canada, Miami, Las Vegas and Hawaii, and Mexico too – all designed to offer the discerning driver a bespoke package that sees them visit some of North and Central America’s most celebrated courses.



The Canada Royal East Coast Tour, for example, gives players access to some of the country’s most prized seaside courses. Beginning at Nova Scotia’s Cabot Links – where the PGA Championship of Canada takes place – the tour also encompasses Brudenelle and Anderson’s Creek Golf Clubs, and Links at Crowbush Cove. Private jet travel between courses and luxury limo or rental car options are available, and at around $2,190 CAD per person, this tour has just one thing in mind: getting as many rounds of golf in as possible in the most stylish of surroundings.


 

Across the border to the south, the package that really stands out from the crowd is the incredible Las Vegas VIP Luxury Golf Experience. You and your group can bed down in the iconic Bellagio – with a luxury fountain view penthouse suite, and access to some of Sin City’s hottest nightspots, included for around $12,693 CAD per person. And what about the golf? You’ll be whisked via private limo to some of Nevada’s top courses, with the PGA-rated TPC Las Vegas, the Nicklaus-designed Bear’s Best, and the prestigious and utterly exclusive Shadow Creek – the favoured greens for the American elite from George Bush Sr. to Michael Jordan. 



When it comes to the company’s worldwide access, however, the possibilities are almost endless. As well as the incredible “Emerald Isle” Luxury Heli Golf Tour, hitting some of Ireland’s greatest greens via private helicopter and priced at around $13,895 CAD per person, they offer the chance to sample some of Asia’s finest courses. At around $8,420 CAD, the Mission Hills Luxury Golf Tour takes players to the 12-course Shenzhen resort – one of the most unusual and serene spots in the world for any enthusiast to tee off.

 

Keeping things local? Cambridge Group of Clubs Members have reciprocal access to dining at ClubLink properities as well as exclusive green fee rates at Markland Wood.  Click here to check out the full details on our privileges page.
