Description from the packaging.

The ultimate golf vacation. Play Australia, Japan and England on three championship courses that Jack designed.

Pack your bags, you're about to tee off on three continents with Jack Nicklaus' Greatest 18 Holes of Major Championship Golf. Here are a lifetime memberships to three of the world's premier courses, each meticulously designed by the Golden Bear to be a supreme test of shotmaking.

If you're ready for three unique golfing experiences, here's your first-class ticket.

Australian Golf Club, Kensington, Australia.
Founded in 1882, it's the oldest, longest, toughest course in Australia, measuring more than 7,000 yards from the back tees. Nicklaus redesigned the course in 1977, transforming it from a wind-swept, virtually treeless links-type course into a lush, tree-lined layout. It's the frequent home of the Australian Open- and one of Golf Magazine's 100 Greatest Courses In The World.

The 17th at Australian.
Pretty but deadly. Keep your ball straight, adjust for the strong Aussie breeze- and watch out for koala bears.

Saint Creek Golf Club, Nagoya, Japan.
One of Jack's newest creations, this course opened in October 1989. It features finely-sculpted holes with lots of trees, brooks, bunkers, huge greens and tight, meticulously-manicured fairways. As delicate and beautiful as a Japanese garden, as formidable as a Sumo wrestler. Destined to be one of the world's great ones.

The 7th at Saint Creek.
Don't let the pagodas distract you- the big greens provide more than enough challenge by themselves.

St. Mellion Golf & Country Club, Cornwall, England.
Although a young course- opened in 1986- veteran golf writers are already describing it as the finest tournament golf course in Europe. Jack rearranged the English hill country to create an American-style championship test filled with streams, lakes, undulating fairways and large, fast greens. One scribe called this future home of the Ryder Cup "a piece of America in the heart of Cornwall."

The 3rd at St. Mellion.
Slopes, mounds and nasty collection bunkers make this more like target practice than a walk in the English countryside.
