183: Mitch, Darin and Kris say goodbye (sort of) to “Talking GolfGetaways"


After 180-plus podcasts and a cavalcade of stars, Mitch Laurance and Darin Bunch are hanging up their mics (for now). Join them for some final reflection — and thanks to the many amazing places and wonderful people who have scripted their golf-travel journey.

182: Nakagawa Family is powered by golf at all ages


It’s a family affair on the latest “Talking GolfGetaways” podcast as Kiley Nakagawa and his amazing kids — 10-year-old Blake and 12-year-old Khloe — join Mitch and Darin to discuss how the game of golf is taking them the new places every week, both literally and figuratively.

181: Jim Hartsell Talks Scotland and Sweetens Cove


Golfer, traveler, and author Jim Hartsell joins “Talking GolfGetaways’ for a wide-ranging discussion on his love for the lesser-known golf of Scotland and the history of Sweetens Cove.

180: Matt Cardis in a van down by the river (or on the road)


Golf nomad and roving photographer Matt Cardis joins Talking GolfGetaways to talk about life on the road during the pandemic, capturing the soul of the game in pictures, exploring the golf world and beyond — including his annual monthlong residency at Rams Hill Golf Club in Southern California.

179: Digging deep into Whistling Straits with Mark the Caddie


As the highly anticipated 43rd playing of the Ryder Cup approaches, to be played over the visually stunning, wildly imaginative and (especially if there’s a fair amount of wind) testing Straits Course at Whistling Straits in Haven, Wis., there may be no one more qualified to share insights and thoughts on the course and the upcoming competition than Mark the Caddie (full name withheld to protect the mystery of his ever-growing Twitter @caddietales fan popularity). Mark joins host Mitch Laurance and co-producer Kris McEwen (Darin Bunch grinding away on his growing media-consulting empire) for a lively, fun and incredibly informative edition of Talking GolfGetaways.
