If you love golf and want to visit one of the most picturesque areas in the United States, this item is for you. We invite you to play five of New England’s most memorable courses on Boston’s north shore—several designed by the incomparable Donald Ross. And to make this experience truly unique, you’ll have cocktails on the ocean at the home of Elliot and Donna Katzman, and watch the sunset as you dine at the Corinthian Yacht Club on Marblehead’s famous harbor. And, to top off your experience, you’ll have box seats at Fenway Park to watch the Red Sox play. Truly a golf and entertainment package that has no equal.

The five extraordinary courses are Essex Country Club (listed in the Golf Digest Top 100), Myopia Hunt Club (featuring two of the top 100 golf holes in America, as identified by Golf Digest—and the only club in the U.S. listed by Golf Magazine to have two of the country’s top 100 signature golf holes), Salem Country Club (which hosted the 2017 U.S. Senior Open), Bass Rocks Golf Club (featuring views of the Atlantic Ocean on almost every hole) and Kernwood Country Club (more than a century old, this course is known as the “Hidden Gem on the North Shore”).

Not one of a kind, but pretty close. In fact, the number-one rated Bourbon Whiskey in the world, with a 99 out of 100 rating by the World Spirits Championship. Like its namesake, this 750 ml bottle of 23-year old bourbon whiskey is full of character. A family reserve bourbon whiskey that is an extraordinarily special sipping experience. This is often regarded as one of the finest bourbons in the world, and can be extremely difficult to find due to its very low production and high demand.
