    The Manhattan-based whisky club 1494, in collaboration with the Scottish travel company Connoisseur Golf, is offering a Founders Golf and Distillery Trip (www.1494ad.com) to the birthplace of both golf and whisky. The trip, which is $175,000 per person and limited to 10 participants, is scheduled for June and includes a membership to 1494. Travelers will fly by private jet to Edinburgh, where they will be transported by chauffeured car or helicopter between distillery tours and rounds of golf at St. Andrews Links, Turnberry Resort, and other top courses.
