Seattle, WA (May 1, 2006) — Back for 2006 is the second annual Great Land Golf Classic tournament offered for purchase in conjunction with 50 departures of Great Land Klondike CruiseTours #5 and #6 from May 27 to August 26, 2006.

The 27-hole Great Land Golf Classic includes three unique golf courses on one adventurous CruiseTour. Guests enjoy a three or four night Inside Passage cruise plus Denali, Dawson City, Whitehorse, a 102-mile Yukon River cruise between Eagle and Dawson City and a scenic train ride to Denali on the McKinley Explorer.

Guests will also enjoy extra time in Whitehorse, Dawson City or Denali giving ample opportunity for additional exploration including optional excursions to Kluane National Park, Tombstone Territorial Park and action packed excursions in Denali.

Two seven-day Caribbean cruises (each for two guests sharing a stateroom) are the Grand Prizes to the overall low gross scorer (without handicap) and the low net scorer (with handicap), and ten second prizes of $100 cruise credit certificate toward a future Holland America Line cruise will be awarded. Great prizes, great fun and great adventure.

Optional excursions spotlight National Parks

Something for everyone is a hallmark of Holland America Line's award-winning Medallion and Signature Collection Excursions Program - and land tours and activities sold in conjunction with Alaska Cruises and CruiseTours are no exception.
