After two podcasts focusing on Wisconsin’s Sand Valley Golf Resort and the Keiser family golf universe, Michael Keiser Jr. joins “Talking GolfGetaways” hosts Mitch Laurance and Darin Bunch for a highly anticipated “Emergency 9” golf-travel quiz.
Given his place as managing partner for golf development, Michael offers great thoughts on favorite places to play, eat, sleep and breathe the game of golf.
A lifetime exploring St. Andrews? Check.
National Golf Links? Yes please.
Golf as a kid? Nope (“hatchets and bow and arrow in the woods”).
The spartan rooms at Sand Hills or the Macdonald Rusacks Hotel in St. Andrews. Like Michael, we’d take either one anytime.
And what about that soft-serve chocolate ice cream buffet as fuel for an epic 80-hole marathon? Find out where.
Also, we get answers about Michael’s handicap, why he loves mixing up yardages (and cares more about winning — and losing gracefully — than the actual score on the card) and a cool new way to pick the next teebox. And, finally, what’s the one course he wishes more people knew about? For a Keiser golf answer he offers up the fun of Bandon Preserve while also giving a nod to Sand Valley neighbor Lawsonia Golf Links in Wisconsin.
