The Benefits of Solo Tours for Seniors
Traveling is an important part of life, and for seniors, it can be especially beneficial. Solo tours are a great way for seniors to explore the world and experience new cultures without having to worry about the logistics or safety concerns that come with traveling with a group. Here are some of the benefits of solo tours for seniors.
One of the biggest advantages of solo tours for seniors is that they can enjoy increased independence. Without having to worry about coordinating with a group, seniors can make their own decisions about where to go and what to do. This allows them to explore at their own pace and take in all the sights and sounds without feeling rushed or overwhelmed. Additionally, solo tours provide seniors with the opportunity to practice their navigation skills and build confidence in their ability to travel independently.
Solo tours are also more affordable than group tours because there are no additional costs associated with coordinating with a large group. Seniors can save money by booking their own flights, hotels, and activities instead of relying on a tour company to do it for them. Additionally, they can take advantage of discounts and promotions that may not be available when traveling in a group.
Finally, solo tours provide seniors with greater flexibility when it comes to planning their itinerary. Without having to worry about accommodating everyone in the group, seniors can customize their trip according to their interests and budget. This allows them to explore more places and experience more activities than they would be able to on a traditional tour.
Solo tours are an excellent way for seniors to experience the world without having to worry about coordinating with a large group or spending too much money. They provide increased independence, affordability, and flexibility that make them an ideal option for those looking for an exciting adventure without all the hassle.

Douglas Golf Club was founded in 1909, with the origina
Douglas Golf Club was founded in 1909, with the original course being designed by golfing legend and six time British Open winner, Harry Vardon. The course was then extended and altered by celebrated course architect of Augusta National, Alister MacKenzie, in 1924.
The course is kept in immaculate condition all year round and is widely renowned for having some of the best kept greens in Ireland. Set on a plateau overlooking Cork City and Inner Harbour, Douglas Golf Club offers spectacular views from both the golf course and the clubhouse. The surrounding 115 acres of century old woodland provide the course with a secluded and relaxing atmosphere that is rare for its central location.

Paul Lawrie clinched his second Legends Tour title of the 2022 season via a play-off
Paul Lawrie clinched his second Legends Tour title of the 2022 season via a play-off after putting in a strong performance on the final round. He was five shots behind leader, Jonas Jonzon at the start of the day, but an eagle on the 3rd hole set him off on a good run. Birdies between the 6th and 9th holes meant that he headed into the back nine with only two shots behind Jonzon.
With Lawrie making birdie on his final hole, he and Jonzon both found themselves playing a play-off. After making his 15ft putt, Lawrie gave himself a chance at eagle to as they moved to a second play-off hole, however Jonzon’s putt rolled wide – handing Lawrie victory!

European Seniors Tour Announces 17-event Tour Schedule
- Press Release
With 11 successful seasons already behind it, the European Seniors Tour has announced its schedule for the year with every reason to believe that 2003 will provide the Tour with its own version of the ‘Glorious 12th.’
At this early stage, the schedule features 17 tournaments spanning the globe but, as always, discussions are ongoing in an attempt to attract new sponsors to further tournaments which will be announced in the near future.
As in previous years, the season will get underway in the Caribbean but with the added interest this year of a new tournament, the Digicel Jamaican Seniors, in association with Sony Ericsson, at Half Moon, Montego Bay in Jamaica from March 21-23.
The new event will kick off an extended ‘Caribbean Swing’, which will go on to feature the fourth staging of the Royal Westmoreland Barbados Open from March 27-29 and the second playing of the Tobago Plantations Seniors Classic from April 3-5.
The Digicel Jamaican Seniors, in association with Sony Ericsson, will offer a prize fund of $250,000, bringing the total value of the ‘Caribbean Swing’ to around $650,000, an added bonus to the warmth and sunshine enjoyed in that idyllic part of the world and the perfect start in the race for the 2003 Order of Merit.
While established tournaments are the bedrock of any Tour, it is always pleasing to announce new events and on that score, the European Seniors Tour is delighted to add three more to the 2003 schedule.
The first one of these, the Wallonia Open, will be staged at the Pierpont Golf Club to the south of Brussels from May 23-25 before moving from Belgium to England for the Nigel Mansell Classic at Woodbury Park in Devon from August 22-24, where the former Formula One World Motor Racing and World Indycar Champion will play host, and the Merseyside English Seniors Open at Hillside Golf Club from September 26-28.
As well as new tournaments, it is always exciting to visit new venues and top of the list this year on that score is the magnificent Westin Turnberry Resort in Scotland, which will play host to the Senior British Open from July 24-27.
It represents a return ‘home’ for the tournament which was staged there for its first four years from 1987 to 1990.
The winners there represent a Who’s Who of Golf, in Bob Charles, Neil Coles and Gary Player (twice) and it is hoped that the return to the famous Open Championship venue will herald another memorable Championship this summer.
Unquestionably the Senior British Open will be the fulcrum of the season being, as it is for the first time, incorporated into the US Champions Tour and officially recognised as a ‘Senior Major’.
Being a joint sanctioned event, prize money won will count on both Tours and, after years of discussion between the European Seniors Tour and the US PGA Tour, this represents a major ambition realised.
It is also worth noting that the restructuring of the schedule has enabled the European Seniors Tour not to clash with two other Senior Majors in America this year, the US PGA Seniors Championship at Aronimink Golf Club in Pennsylvania from June 5-8 and the US Senior Open at the Inverness Club in Ohio from June 26-29.
Andy Stubbs, Managing Director of the European Seniors Tour, said: ‘Glancing down the schedule, we see another season full of exciting and varied playing opportunities for our Members throughout the world, further emphasising the growing globalisation of our game.’

Staysure PGA Seniors Championship
The Staysure Tour is heading to London Golf Club for the inaugural edition of the Staysure PGA Seniors Championship, taking place from August 2-5.
The PGA Seniors Championship, last played in 2015, returns to the over-50s circuit and will this year have special significance by becoming the first event to be hosted by Staysure – who this year became the first ever title sponsor of the European Senior Tour. The PGA Seniors Championship was a mainstay on the over-50s circuit between 1992 and 2015, and has been won by some of the tour’s all-time greats, notably Brian Huggett MBE, Tommy Horton MBE and Sam Torrance OBE.
London Golf Club – the first ever European Tour Destination and part of European Tour Properties’ global network – has impeccable tournament credentials, having held European Tour tournaments in the form of the 2008 and 2009 European Opens and the Volvo World Match Play in 2014. London Golf Club last hosted a Staysure Tour event in 2007, the Bendinat London Seniors Masters, where Torrance held off the challenge of Spain’s José Rivero to win by one stroke.
In addition to the Jack Nicklaus signature-designed Heritage Course, London Golf Club also boasts the International Course – which will host golf’s legends in a four round event this summer. Known for its fast, undulating fairways and risk and reward tee shots, the International Course is set to provide the perfect setting for the first staging of the Staysure PGA Seniors Championship. David MacLaren, Head of Staysure Tour, said: “We are delighted to confirm that the Staysure PGA Seniors Championship will take place at the renowned London Golf Club.
“London Golf Club is an outstanding venue and one which has a unique relationship with the European Tour, through our joint-venture partnership. We have to thank all those involved at one of the UK’s finest inland venues for agreeing to host the flagship event of our first year of partnership with Staysure. “We want to pay particular thanks to the PGA for their support of over-50s golf and ensuring that one of the game’s most enduring titles returns to the Staysure Tour.”
Stephen Follett, Chief Executive of London Golf Club, added: “We are thrilled to be hosting the Staysure PGA Seniors Championship. The London Golf Club has a great heritage of hosting high profile tournaments and we look forward to welcoming everyone in August, to what I’m sure will be a great championship.”
Robert Maxfield, chief executive of The PGA, said: “We are delighted to see the oldest senior event on the Staysure Tour return to the tournament calendar. “Many great names have won the Staysure PGA Seniors Championship and those PGA Professionals who make the cut will be hoping to add their name to a long list of former winners, which includes Peter Thomson, Christy O’Connor, Sam Torrance and Tommy Horton. “The London Golf Club has a reputation of staging top class international competitions and we are delighted to be working with a brand new title sponsor Staysure for this event. “With the possibility of an array of former Ryder Cup players in the field alongside the elite of European over-50s golf, we look forward to hosting another exciting championship in 2018.”
