This year's Walker Cup at the National Golf Links of America got us thinking about a tournament spectator's bucket list—at the very top of that list would have to be attending the Open Championship at St. Andrews. Fortunately, that event comes around once every five years, and the team at Perry Golf has built an itinerary that turns an Open day into an epic golf adventure. The two-week cruise aboard the Azamara Quest—a midsize luxury liner that's fully stocked with modern amenities— begins in Southampton, England and hits linksland ports-of-call in Ireland, England and Scotland, with non-golf stops on the Isles of Man, Skye and Lewis, and culminates with a visit to golf's most hallowed ground. Along the way, a choice of two golf course "menus" awaits, though both are stocked equally with world-class layouts like Royal County Down, Royal Liverpool and Castle Stuart. It's a dream trip, in other words, and this one has to be right there with the very best for creating lifelong memories.
