IF you're a tennis fan it's unlikely you'll ever get to unleash a serve on centre court at Wimbledon or Roland Garros and most weekend cricketers will never rattle the boundaries at Lords or the MCG.
But if you're a golf fan, you're more than welcome to tee up at the Old Course at St Andrews or the testing links of Carnoustie.
In fact, with this Ultimate British Open Trail golf package they're just two of the Open Championship hosts you'll get to experience first hand.
Unlike other sports, golfers have the opportunity to walk in the footsteps of their heroes and, with the five courses chosen for this trip, there will be more than a few memorable moments to savour.
Relive Greg Norman's magical 1986 Open victory at Turnberry or stand on the Swilcan Bridge at St Andrews and wonder what Jack Nicklaus must have felt when he walked there twice on his way to winning.
Test your own game against the menacing 18th hole at Carnoustie which so cruelly robbed Frenchman Jean van de Velde of an Open title in 1999.
Or take in the beauty and challenge of this year's Open venue, Troon, where the 145th Open Champion will be crowned in July.
And while it may not have hosted The Open, the 120-year-old New Course at St Andrews is one of the unsung heroes of the game whose only crime was to be built next door to the most famous course in the world.
Between them, these five courses have hosted almost every great player of the modern era and been witness to some of the game's most enduring moments.
So why not experience your own little piece of history to these world renowned golf courses? It's the once in a lifetime trip every golfer should treat themselves to.
