If you've always dreamed of playing the Old Course at St. Andrews or all of the fabulous links courses in Ireland, then now is the perfect time.

Broach Sports Tours has announced a variety of golf travel packages to Ireland and Scotland for 2013, president Tom Broach said.
Broach will offer golfers the choice of 10 different itineraries for golf trips to Ireland, plus one to Scotland. Golfers also have the option to choose their own courses, with Broach Sports Tours handling the hotel reservations, greens fees and travel.
“If you’ve always dreamed of playing the Old Course at St. Andrews, or all of the fabulous links courses in Ireland, then now is the perfect time,” said Carlos McCracken, Broach Sports Tours’ director of golf. “These are the trips of a lifetime.”
The various packages to Ireland and Scotland all include five nights hotel accommodations, greens fees for five rounds of golf, tour guide, breakfast, ground transportation – or rental car for those who wish to strike out on their own.
The four most-popular Irish golf tours focus on Dublin and East Coast Links, Southwest Ireland, Northwest Coast Links and Southwest Coast Links.
The Dublin and East Coast Links tour operates out of the Portmarnock Links Hotel, just outside of Dublin, and has tee times scheduled at Portmarnock Links, Portmarnock Old, the European Club, Baltray and Royal County Down.
The Northwest Coast Links tour also operates out of Dublin and includes tee times at Portmarnock Links, Enniscrone, Strandhill, Carne and County Sligo.
The Southwest Ireland tour operates in and out of Shannon and includes days at Ballybunion Cashen, Ballybunion Old, Waterville, Tralee and Old Head Kinsale.
The Southwest Coast Links also operates out of Shannon and includes days at Ballybunion Cashen, Mahoney’s Point, Dooks and two days at Tralee.
Golfers can also mix and match for the ideal trip to suit their needs.
“We can accommodate groups as small as foursomes and there are bargain prices for groups of 10 or more,” McCracken said. “We offer the use of a rental car, but we strongly recommend using our tour guide and transportation to maximize the enjoyment of the trip.”
The Scottish play and travel package operates out of St. Andrews, after players fly into either Edinburgh or Glasgow. The five courses on the regular itinerary include St. Andrews (Old through ballot or New), Carnoustie, Leven Links, Crail and Balcomie. Golfers also have the options to add or substitute Turnberry, Troon, Kingsbarns, Prestwick and Gleneagles.
