Scottish Company Wins US Contract


Travel specialists PerryGolf have been named American 'official travel provider' for the 2000 Solheim Cup at Loch Lomond in October 2000.

The firm, founded in 1984, earned the backing of the Ladies' European Tour after being voted tour operatior of the year in the Hertz International Golf Travel Awards.

LET commercial director Hugh Roberts said: "We expect a large contingent of American fans for the Solheim Cup and I have no doubt PerryGolf will look after their every need. They will provide a service that will make the Solheim Cup a truly memorable occasion for our American visitors."

Perry Golf spokesman, the former Scottish Walker Cup player Colin Dalgleish, said: "We specialise in outbound travel from the US and our sister company InterGolf has an office in Atlanta.

"The Ryder Cup 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.

"We are looking 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."
