Adrenaline High

by Sarah Tuff

The dream: To shoot a 72
Go to: Ireland
And enroll at: Phil Ritson–Mel Sole Golf School

Phil Ritson and Mel Sole are the pros who teach the pros—Gary Player and Curtis Strange are among their big-name students. Luckily for amateurs, Sole also likes to relax by traveling to Ireland and South Africa—and he takes strangers with him. Next August 2007, he'll lead a dozen golfers around eight fabled courses on the Emerald Isle, dispensing tips, assigning handicaps, and officiating mini-tournaments. Usually these guys teach using video analysis and psychology lessons, but here things are looser—that stuff happens over a pint of Guinness. Can't wait that long? Consider Sole's golf-and-safari trip to Cape Town and the coastal areas of South Africa in September 2006, where the 19th holes include a Champagne-and-oyster cruise on the Knysna Lagoon and lion-viewing at the Shamwari Game Reserve.
Ireland, nine days, $5,490 (includes accommodations, breakfasts, and green fees); South Africa, 14 days, $6,900 (includes airfare, accommodations, meals, and beverages, safari, and green fees)
