Climb aboard for a unique first-class european vacation

Golfing Europe doesn’t get any more hassle-free than this: Drift down the canals of France, Ireland, Scotland, or England, stopping to tee up at fabled courses along the way. European Waterways’ new golf-and-barge package allows you and your significant other (could be your caddy!) to board an eight- to 12-passenger ship with like-minded duffers. Seven-day cruises include five days on lauded U.K. links like Scotland’s Gleneagles and 17th century Royal Dornoch, England’s Sunningdale, and Ireland’s Lahinch. French outings offer three to five golf days on courses such as the wooded Domaine du Roncemay. Per-person rates range from $2,500 to $4,190, and include accommodations, meals, sightseeing, and greens fees. (800) 394-8630 or
