      Bill "Spaceman" Lee

      William Francis Lee III (born December 28, 1946), nicknamed Spaceman, is an American former Major League Baseball pitcher. He played for the Boston Red Sox 1969–1978 and the Montreal Expos 1979–1982. On November 7, 2008, Lee was inducted into the Red Sox Hall of Fame, as the team's record-holder for most games pitched by a left-hander (321) and the third-highest win total (94) by a Red Sox southpaw. On August 23, 2012, Lee signed a contract to play with the San Rafael Pacifics of the independent North American League at age 65.


      In addition to his baseball experience, Lee is known for his counterculture behavior, his antics both on and off the field, and his use of the Leephus pitch, a personalized variation of the eephus pitch.[1]


      Lee has co-written four books: The Wrong Stuff; Have Glove, Will Travel; The Little Red (Sox) Book: A Revisionist Red Sox History; and Baseball Eccentrics: The Most Entertaining, Outrageous, and Unforgettable Characters in the Game. In 2006, the documentary film by Brett Rapkin Spaceman: A Baseball Odyssey featured Lee.

      The golf trip to St.Andrews was planned and executed to perfection by Mike and Susan and the rest of the team at Fairways to Heaven Golf Travel. The lodging accommodations for our group of 4 overlooking the 18th green of The Old Course was quite extraordinary and the views across the 1st Teebox to the distant West Sands Beach at Sunset were magnificent. The planning of every stage of our trip was carried out seamlessly by Fairways To Heaven with excellent communication from Mike and his team as well as their local on-site representative at St. Andrews, who kept us informed of the daily ballot results , restaurant recommendations, and let us not forget to applaud James & his fleet of comfortable vans & story-telling drivers who provided friendly, courteous and efficient transportation to and from the airport as well as between St. Andrews and the neighboring courses at Kingsbarns and Dumbarney, all done with a smile & supported by refreshments during travel. My three sons and I are already looking forward to our next overseas golf trip with Fairways To Heaven.

      All accommodations were great. The hosts at each hotel were the best and very helpful. The rooms comfortable and welcoming. Our driver Ian was the best. He did everything he could to keep us engaged and gave us the best info about Scotland and the area to see and visit. All golf courses we played were spectacular in both scenery and playability. Both challenging and fun. Everything was spectacular.

      We had a good time. No issues. Drivers were really good. Golf was great. The Brooks Hotel - great staff. The room was tiny and needed some repairs/touch-ups/etc. Balleek Castle was awesome.

      Just returned from a week-long trip to Scotland. We had a great experience! The courses we played were outstanding and the accommodations were nice. We did three days in the Highlands and four days in St. Andrews. It was a long drive from Inverness to St. Andrews, especially after 36 holes but it was worth it. Our driver was great and he made sure we arrived everywhere on time. We had a couple of extra requests while we were in Scotland and Fairways to Heaven was able to deliver. It was very much appreciated. Can't wait to plan another trip.
