Leading luxury golf cruise and golf tour specialist, Trendsetter Travel Golf Tours, invites you to join this golf journey from New York to Montreal onboard Seabourn Sojourn including a sail west up the St Lawrence River.  Sojourn is a luxury ship accommodating up to 450 guests (but usually around 400), with a staff to guest ratio of 1:3.  All guests enjoy a spacious suite (minimum 28 sqm internal area) featuring a separate bath and shower, twin basins, an in-room mini-bar stocked with your choice of complimentary beverages, world class dining in 4 restaurants, all alcoholic beverages (some premium brands excluded), gratuities and unlimited wifi.  Verandah suites include a 6 sqm balcony.  And, a highlight for many, complimentary champagne and caviar anywhere, any time.

The cruise commences in New York and heads north-east sailing up the coast of USA before heading west sailing up the iconic St Lawrence River. There are 8 port days– 5 in Canada (including an over-night stay with 2 x full port days in Quebec City) and 3 in the USA – but everywhere there is an abundance of wonderful opportunities to appreciate the approaching autumn season.

Choose as much or as little golf as you prefer to play, that is you can play as few as 1 or as many as 8 games (non golfers are also most welcome).  Throughout, we offer golf courses which few guests will have previously played.  In all ports, there are several excellent and well-priced golf courses and Trendsetter has selected the best of these.

Day 2 – Monday 15 September 2025 – Newport – In Port 8 AM to 5 PM - Golf – Game 1

Seabourn Sojourn tenders off the coast of Newport, the waters where the Americas Cup was held for many years until Alan Bond’s historic win in 1983 with Australia II.  For those not golfing, there is plenty to see including the famous cliff walk as you view mansion after mansion built in the Gilded Age following the American Civil War.  There is also the Tennis Hall of Fame, located in the main street of Newport.

Golf – Game 1: Today, we play Newport National Golf Club, rated by Golf Digest as the # 1 public access golf club on Rhode Island.  This is an inland links style layout previously played by Adrienne and David.

Day 3 – Tuesday 16 September 2025 – Boston – In Port – 8 AM to 6 PM - Golf – Game 2

Today enjoy time in Boston, probably the most historic of all the northeastern USA cities.  There is plenty to see and do in this city, famous for the Boston Tea Party and the start of the American War of Independence.  We recommend visiting Bunker Hill (walking distance from the city), where the 1st battle of the War of Independence was fought and also the excellent Presidential Library of President John F Kennedy (a museum of the life and times of JFK concentrating on his 3 years as President).

Golf – Game 2:  For those who have explored Boston previously or prefer a game of golf, we will coach south to Plymouth, to Waverly Oaks, a championship course designed by Brian Sylva in 1995.  Plymouth itself is famous for being the site of the first colony established by the Mayfair Pilgrims in 1660 but in recent years, is equally well known for a series of excellent golf courses built around its outskirts.

Day 4 – Wednesday 17 September 2025 – Portland – In Port 8 AM to 6 PM – Golf – Game 3

Portland is the largest city in Maine and one of the state’s busiest ports.  The city’s fame includes its historic waterfront downtown area, its many nearby lighthouses and lobster rolls.  For the non golfers, there are many interesting Seabourn excursions to consider.

Golf – Game 3:  Today we play Belgrade Lakes Golf Club, one of the highest rated golf clubs in Maine and with an amazing list of positive reviews.

Day 5 – Thursday 18 September 2025 – Sea Day

Day 6 – Friday 19 September 2025 – Halifax, Nova Scotia – In Port 8 AM to 6 PM – Golf - Game 4

Today we birth in Halifax, the capital of the Canadian province of Nova Scotia.  With a population approaching 500,000, Halifax is a major port on the east coast of Canada with the historic waterfront precinct now a thriving area of restaurants and shops.

Golf – Game 4:  The Links at Brunello, the best of the local Halifax golf courses, offers a challenging layout only 20 mins from the port.

Day 7 – Saturday 20 September 2025 – Sea Day

Day 8 – Sunday 21 September 2025 – Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island – In Port 8 AM to 6 PM – Golf – Game 5

Day 10 – Tuesday 23 September 2025 – Saguenay, Quebec – In Port 8 AM to 6 PM – Golf – Game 6

Today we cruise down the Saguenay River, a tributary of the St Lawrence River, to berth at the Quebecoise city of Saguenay.  Saguenay, with a predominantly French speaking population of 150,000, has 3 x 18-hole golf courses and we will play the best of these.

Golf – Game 6 – Club de Golf Chicoutimi, a golf course which both Adrienne and I have played previously, is a park land layout with elevation changes as you play through the forest landscape.

Day 11 – Wednesday 24 September 2025– Quebec – In Port 8 AM - Overnight - Golf – Game 7

Early this morning we berth in Quebec, only a short walk from the historic centre.  Quebec was founded by the French in the early 1600s.  However, in 1759 there was a pivotal battle for Quebec, fought on the nearby Plains of Abraham.  While less than 10,000 troops were involved in the battle, the victory of the English over the French led to the ultimate formation of Canada under English control.  The battle lasted less than one hour but did see both commanding generals (Wolfe and Montcalm) die from gunshot wounds.  The picturesque, historic Chateau Frontenac is a famous backdrop for many beautiful photos of Quebec, particularly in autumn.

Golf Game 7: Today we play Le Grand Vallon Golf Course.  The course is located at the foot of Mont-Sainte-Anne and offers spectacular mountain views.  It is considered one of the most scenic golf courses in Quebec as the course winds through tree lined fairways peppered with 40 bunkers and 4 lakes.  The terrain is hilly, and this is definitely a course to be played with a motorised cart.

Day 12 – Thursday 25 September 2025 – Quebec – Depart 6 PM – Golf Game 8

Golf – Game 8:  Golf de la Faune, Quebec City’s only 18 hole championship Course, is but a 15 minute transfer from Sojourn, for a 9.45 tee off. The challenge today will be undulating greens and the many water hazards.  There will be ample time to play our round and enjoy a refreshing post round drink before returning to our ship for a 6.00 pm cruise departure.

Day 13 – Friday 26 September 2025 – Montreal – In Port 7 AM

Farewell your new friends after breakfast today.

Montreal is one of the world’s great cities.  It is the commercial capital of the province of Quebec, a province where French is the main language.  Indeed, in some areas of Quebec province, only French is spoken.  However, Montreal is unique within Quebec province where English is spoken just about everywhere.  You cannot fail to enjoy this city which sits on the St Lawrence River and is the starting point of most cruises of the river.  Once the river was only navigable as far west as Montreal but is now navigable to the Great Lakes through the benefit of a series of locks.

Post-cruise we can offer and book a range of hotels in Montreal.  Trendsetter has access to a number of Virtuoso hotels which booking through Trendsetter Travel offers early check-in, late check out, automatic room upgrade (subject to availability) and a USD 100 equivalent food and beverage credit.

The Finer Details...

Inclusions, pricing and various conditions of this hosted golf cruise are as follows:

Trendsetter has identified and, where possible, booked the courses as specified but cannot be held responsible for any late amendments or cancellations caused by events outside of its control e.g. late arrival at or cancellation of a port due to weather conditions, storms or heavy rain necessitating cancellation of play after a round has started.  If such an event occurs Trendsetter will do its best to organise an alternative course or obtain a partial or full refund as practicable.  Please note that a full refund is NOT GUARANTEED as it may not be possible to cancel/amend contracted services, such as coach transport, within the requisite time frame.

Should a tour participant choose not to play a particular golf course which has been prepaid, Trendsetter will refund an amount equivalent to the saving Trendsetter achieves for the non-attendance at golf that day.

Trendsetter may also change the nominated golf course if it believes it is in the best interests of the tour (e.g. if course conditioning is found not be of an acceptable standard due to course maintenance works, a better golf course becomes available or the course will not permit our group to play on the nominated date). You will be advised of this should such a change occur.

Payment of your golf programme constitutes acceptance of the above terms.
