While the prospects of an outdoor summer have been boosted by the recent reopening of pubs and restaurants for outdoor services, holidaymakers have also received a recent boost.

While the Government have asked people to spend locally when necessary, the European Parliament’s decision to pass the Digital Green Cert proposal is significant.

This will allow for travel across the bloc and the cert will officially be implemented on July 1 and it’s expected that the Green Cert will be introduced in Ireland on July 19.

The pass will show if a passenger has been vaccinated, tested negative for Covid, or

VisitScotland’s flagship iCentre on Dumfries’ Whitesands is at the heart of the drive to encourage tourists and visitors alike to enjoy all that the region has to offer.

After months of lockdowns and Covid-19 restrictions, the move into Level One and the start of the school summer holidays in a fortnight’s time is expected to bring both a tourism boost to the region and to encourage more locals to enjoy a “staycation” and to explore what’s on their doorstep.

And it means the five staff at the visitor information centre – which is the “go to”

No matter how things turned out on Sunday at Muirfield Village, the 2021 Memorial will always be remembered as the tournament Jon Rahm should have won. The 26-year-old Spaniard walked off the 18th hole on Saturday having played arguably the best round of golf ever in a PGA Tour event, shooting an eight-under 64 to take a six-shot lead, only to be informed the COVID-19 test he took earlier in the day had come up positive. Tour officials informed Rahm he’d have to withdraw from the event just as he was trying to become the only golfer other than Tiger

zaphfrans

It was over fairly early for Bernd Wiesberger, which made for a less than thrilling finish to the European Tour’s Made in HimmerLand tournament but no less satisfying a result for the 35-year-old Austrian. Wiesberger started the round with a one-stroke lead, but with seven birdies in an 11-hole stretch at the HimmerLand course in Farse, Denmark, he cruised to a five-stroke wire-to-wire victory over Italy’s Guido Migliozzi by posting a closing 64 for a 21-under 263.

Without the drama, Wiesberger could enjoy the moment and appreciate its meaning. This was his eighth career title on the European Tour but
