Carr Golf to Host Donald Ross Invitational Tournament at Royal Dornoch

Handful of Team Spots Remain for Event Played on Classic Scottish Links Course

(DUBLIN, Ireland) – Carr Golf  – Ireland and Scotland’s premier provider of unforgettable golf vacations – will host the inaugural Donald Ross Invitational Tournament on Scotland’s renowned Royal Dornoch Golf Club, Oct. 8 – 12.

Starting at $3,425 per person (at the current exchange rate for 2,750 GBP), the two-person team competition includes three rounds on Royal Dornoch, rated No. 5 by Golf Digest in its “World’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses” list, as well as a practice round at nearby Brora Golf Club, home of the James Braid Golfing Society. A handful of team spots remain open to compete the full tournament field.

This one-of-a-kind golf pilgrimage to Dornoch also features four nights’ luxury accommodations, welcome reception and dinner, daily breakfast and lunch, premium gift bags and souvenirs, airport transfers, local transportation, and concierge service both pre-trip and during the event.

Other key social events include an audience with noted golf course architecture writer Bradley Klein, author of “Discovering Donald Ross” and winner of the Donald Ross Award, and a gala dinner and entertainment at the Royal Golf Hotel.

Born in the town of Dornoch in 1872, Ross immigrated to America in 1899 and became known as the “Father of U.S. Golf Course Architecture.” His world-class designs include Pinehurst No. 2, Aronimink Golf Club, East Lake Golf Club, Seminole Golf Club, Oak Hill Country Club, Inverness Club and Oakland Hills Country Club. Over 100 U.S. national championships have been played on his courses.

Ross developed his passion for golf playing Royal Dornoch as a boy. Acclaimed as one of the finest links-style layouts in the world, its superb routing and use of raised putting surfaces was a major influence on his   roughly 400 design projects. He was a founding member and first president of the American Society of Golf Course Architects and admitted to the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1977.

“This wonderful event at Dornoch celebrates the genius and memory of Donald Ross on the course where he learned to love the game,” says Marty Carr, executive chairman of Carr Golf. “We invite you to journey with us to the north of Scotland and discover why we’re the world’s premier golf tour company.”
