SPECIAL TRAVEL ISSUE | FORE SAIL

A Cruise for Swingers--and Others

March 18, 2001

Here's the dilemma: You can't think of a better way to spend your vacation than taking a luxury barge through the canals of Europe. Your significant other, however, is a golf nut. One solution: take separate vacations. Another solution: book a cabin on a lavish hotel barge that floats from one European golf course to another. Go Barging offers nine itineraries through Scotland, Ireland, England and France. The barges, which accommodate 4 to 12 passengers, depending on the vessel, feature lush cabins with windows and private baths, a full bar and a resident master chef with expertise in the local cuisine. Golfers play Europe's most prestigious courses, including the Nairn Golf Club in Scotland, Lahinch Golf Club in Ireland, the Wentworth Golf Club in England and La Grande Motte in France. Sightseeing excursions are arranged between tee times, and alternate activities are available for those who think a Mulligan is only a stew.
