Prestwick

Can’t tell you how much I enjoyed the Prestwick blog March 6th. Just lucked into the site, 1st time listener. Timing couldn’t be better as I am heading to Scotland for a wedding in September and after several trips and only playing the New Course(couldn’t get on the Old Course)- informed my wife I’m going early and playing golf. The 1st course I scheduled was Prestwick and I can’t tell you how excited I am to play it after listening to your podcast. Thank you-a new fan!

Great listen and help!

Not only do the great guys at Golf and the Good Life kick out amazing listens, they have been extremely helpful on the side guiding me through getting tee times as a single in Ireland. The result is a booking at Lahinch and Royal County Down. In addition to this assist - they were also very helpful with additional caddy FAQs I pinged them on following that great episode. Great talent and kind fellas over there!
