the Solheim Cup a truly memorable occasion for our American visitors."

has generated great interest in competition between Europe and the
United States and the fact the Solheim Cup is at Loch Lomond will
make for a very exciting event.

forward to putting together different trips and use our knowledge
of the general logistics of what people are trying to do when they
come over here.
"In the past
we've chartered a ship to the British Open and for next year's Open
we have chartered the Royal Scotsman train. We also have a fleet
of VIP coaches with armchair comfort - individual solutions for
the discerning travelling golfer."
