“My expectations were exceeded it was truly memorable week. Now I am envy of all my riding/golfing mates. Thank you on your organisational skills and professionalism. I have not stopped bragging praises to you. Hope to hear about next cycling adventure.”
Ivan – 2018 Tour
“Thanks once again for the outstanding experience you provided us. The hospitality and attention to service from you and the Aiken team was outstanding and while I expected the Masters to be phenomenal the 5 days under your care were right up there.
Hopefully we’ll cross paths again in the not too distant future!”
Don – 2018 Tour
“The trip delivered much more than expected on all fronts. Enjoyed everything, It’s only after being there you appreciate the course and how valuable it is to be able to access “The Masters” tickets at all. Many Thanks”
Darren – 2018 Tour
“Thank you again David. A great trip! Attending the Masters was an absolute highlight. Thoroughly enjoyed the golf, fellowship, banter (Ox was prominent!)And various team get togethers.

You and Mark were terrific hosts and very generous with your time in making everyone feel welcome. Well done!
Count me in for 2023.”
Rob – 2018 Tour

“We formed a very eclectic group of golf fans ranging from bankers to printers and a pizza shop owner. I would think that many reading this would think that they can’t afford to take a trip like this and I know I thought exactly the same way, now I know I simply couldn’t have afforded not to do it.”

Kevin Nolan, Cannons Creek

Kevin has written a whole article on his trip

“Words don’t do Augusta National justice, you need to go and see it for yourself – it is absolutely out of this world and as a golf fan you have to do it. Marko and David make the trip unforgettable; the insight into the professional tour combined with 10 years of knowledge of the local area makes this the best way to see it. An intimate tour group with two blokes who genuinely want you to have the best possible holiday. Accommodation is great and the team on the ground at the other end make it so much easier than you could ever imagine. Golf courses speak for themselves, they are unbelievable. Do it.”

As you know I’m stranded at Columbia airport for 12 hours but this hasn’t killed the buzz !!!

The past ten days have been packed full of memorable moments and fantastic times.

The tour was everything I thought it would be and more. Nothing needs to be said about Augusta National that hasn’t been said already ( the place is mind blowing ) however the level of service from yourselves and Diamond Dave’s crew was outstanding ( you guys did exactly what you said you would ) and this really elevated the tour to the next level.

Throw in a great cast of lads, BUD LIGHTS, CAPTAIN MORGANS, traditional southern cuisine and the new “corporate facility ” and I guess it’s hard not to get it right. I will tell tales of your greatness when I return and can guarantee you will see more Kalgoorlie folk on ChasingBirdies tours in coming years”

“Many thanks to you and Mark for the last week, truly an amazing experience!!

I found the week from the hotel, to transport, and golf to be a laid back adventure which coupled with the mixing of the tour members to be a lifelong experience. Enjoyed our time together and will stay in touch, any time you are heading this way, I will look after you !!”

Bill S 2015

“Just a quick note of appreciation for the amazing time I had at Augusta and Pebble Beach.”

From the time I arrived at Columbia airport to the time I left Pebble Beach, everything was arranged so I could relax and enjoy a golfer’s trip of a lifetime. The atmosphere you created enabled everyone to mix and the camaraderie of the other golfers on the tour was great, especially after hours.

Thanks again for the wonderful memories.”

David Gleeson, North Melbourne

“Just a quick note of appreciation for the amazing time I had at Augusta and Pebble Beach.”

Well boys sitting in the Qantas club waiting for the flight back to Melbourne. Some people had left early in the morning in the US and if I didn’t get a chance thanks for sharing a great time. I want to personally thank David Wren and Marco for their help in organising everything and for the golf tips that I will use in games to come.

Could not believe when we sat down on the plane last night that Wayne Grady sat next to Mark on the plane. Mark was hoping to catch him at the Masters but amazingly he sat next to him on the plane. You should have seen the smile on Hi-TOWERS face PRICELESS!!!!!!!!!

I hope in the months to come that we might be all able to get together for a beer or 2.

Marco thought about your breakfast spot. Simon Madden .Legend, very funny and very knowledgeable on sport. Definitely worth a try.

All the Carlton emails are already starting. Very funny. To all at Pebble I don’t have to say enjoy it as it is sensational.

To all goodbye for now”

Stephen McGowan

Jim Willmott

“Hi Dave, Cracking trip again! Had a ball! I will send off a few photos. I presume you are more after shots of the “patrons”? Thanks again for making it such a memorable trip! Pity about Bubba winning though…………………”

Shaun McCorkell

“Hi David, I just want to thank you, Mark and Craig for a terrific 2 weeks. It was more than I bargained for. The highlights were many but watching all the Aussies on the 16th on the Sunday and playing the 18th at Pebble were something else. I will definitely recommend your tour and am already contemplating 2016.

All your organisation was just fabulous, the courses great, Dave and his crew in Aitken amazing. I agree Carmel was superb. I enjoyed everyone’s company because you, Mark and Craig got everyone involved.”

James Ruddle, May 2013

“Both David & Mark were fantastic hosts. They couldn’t do enough for us – from finding tee times at local courses to helping us with the best spots to view the event from and I even got to play golf with Mark at Palmetto. Fantastic.”

Brian Jackson, Beaumaris

“Now I know why they call it Amen Corner – it is heaven. I am so glad I have experienced this first hand – it beats 6am on the couch any day.”

Brad Cain, Kew
