If you want to really pick someone’s brain about golf travel, few brains have more to pick than that of Jason Deegan, senior staff writer for GolfAdvisor.com. With reviews of more than 800 courses in almost 20 countries under his golf belt, Deegan joins hosts Mitch Laurance and Darin Bunch for a special “South Korea” episode of “Talking GolfGetaways.”
Having just returned from the golf-crazy Asian destination, “Deegs” (as we like to call him) fills listeners in on what he felt was most surprising about visiting South Korea for the first time and the two clubs he played. He talks about the stunning private track, Whistling Rock Country Club near Seoul, and the experience of using driver-less golf carts for the first time. In addition, he describes the unusual themes for each nine holes of Whistling Rock’s 27-hole layout, plus the cool vibe of playing night golf and the best way to get to reach what seems to be a far-off destination for most of us (but isn’t as difficult as you might expect).
If you’ve ever thought about adding South Korea to your bucket list, this episode is the perfect starter — and a fun conversation full of tips and observations from one of our favorite golf-travel gurus.
