St Andrews, Fife, Scotland (PRWEB) January 18, 2013

Golf Vacations UK offer their congratulations to Paul McGinley on his appointment to the European team Captaincy for 2014 at Gleneagles. Eddie Gilbertson, Director of the company said "It was excellent to see the Captaincy given to Paul McGinley and we send our congratulations to him. He is certainly a popular and deserving choice."

McGinley knew this was probably his final chance to captain Europe. Darren Clarke is now odds-on for 2016 and Lee Westwood, Ian Poulter and Padraig Harrington are edging closer to the honour. McGinley benefited also from the unequivocal support of the world No.1. Rory McIlroy who also played under him at the Seve Trophy in 2009.

Golf Vacations UK are now offering officially authorised packages for the 2014 Ryder Cup which will be hosted by the Gleneagles Hotel and Resort in Perthshire Scotland in 2014. The competition will be played over the PGA Centenary course, which is a Jack Nicklaus design.

The company are offering accommodations, land transport and tickets to the full event. The packages include direct travel to the course, whereas ticket holders not on these packages would have to travel to Perth or Stirling and then take Motor coach transport to the venue. The packages which include a celebration evening, are likely to be in high demand as ticketing for the event is limited.

Golf Vacations UK still have several tee times available for St Andrews Old Course for the coming season from May through August.

Golf Vacations UK have had many enquiries for tee times in September; however Graeme Gilbertson, Director of the company said "The St Andrews Links Trust, who govern the St Andrews Links courses, do not accept applications or offer guaranteed tee times to visitors on the Old Course during September. The course is used mainly for local competition during what is known as the 'Autumn Meeting' which is then historically followed by the Dunhill Links Trophy." The company advise golfers who wish to play the Old Course, to consider other months.
