About this trip

Please join Boston Red Sox greats, Bill "Spaceman" Lee and Rick Miller, for a week across the magical links of Southwest Ireland from July 21-27, 2019. Visiting iconic clubs like Ballybunion, Old Head, Waterville  and Tralee guests will get a true Irish golf experience both on and off the course. 

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.

He spent 12 of his 15 seasons as a member of the Boston Red Sox, he also played with the California Angels. Miller was an accomplished fielder who won a Gold Glove in 1978 for his play in center field.

Dear wetravel, I hope this message finds you well. I wanted to take a moment to share my reflections on the recent trip we booked with your company. There were several highlights that deserve commendation, as well as some aspects that, regrettably, fell short of expectations. Firstly, I would like to extend my appreciation to Neil, our second bus driver, whose expertise and kindness significantly enhanced our journey. Similarly, the hospitality provided by the hotels we stayed at was exemplary and contributed to the overall enjoyment of our trip. I cannot say enough good things about Neil and the staff at the hotels. However, there were areas in the pre-trip and during-trip support that were notably lacking. Communication was insufficient, as I found myself relying on second-hand information from fellow travelers rather than direct updates from your team. An itemized bill was never received, which made it difficult to track expenses and ensure that everything was accounted for. Moreover, some members of our travel group faced difficulties with check-ins and luggage management. Having a designated contact person for assistance would have greatly alleviated these issues. As it was, I often found myself in the position of mediating these challenges, which detracted from my experience. The expectation when booking with a professional travel agency is to have seamless support and guidance. Unfortunately, the lack of assistance we received was a source of disappointment. On a brighter note, the selection of golf courses was excellent, and again, Neil’s role was instrumental in making those experiences memorable. The golf courses were truly special. I believe that constructive feedback is vital for growth and enhancement of services, and I trust that our comments will be received in the spirit of ensuring even greater experiences for your future clients. Warm regards, Matthew Weiss

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.
