John Macfarlane - PGA Professional - Tour Driver (small - medium sized groups)



Danny Johnston Group

A special thank you to John for his excellent service. He was timely, considerate, knowledgeable and sincere in all of his interaction with our group. In addition, he went above and beyond his normal service scenario by providing me with a buggy at several golf courses in England after I injured my right knee. I am very appreciative and thankful for his help in working with each course to enable me to continue playing golf in spite of my injury. Without his help I could not have played the last four round of golf on the trip. Please give him my personal thanks once again for his efforts.


Manning Party

I'd like to provide a special recognition of our driver, John MacFarlane. John did an outstanding job on all fronts...he was always on time for pick up; he provided tremendous insights and observations about the country and the areas we were traveling through; he called all the golf courses in advance of our arrival to ensure they were prepared for our arrival; before he dropped us off, he shared insights on the courses that he knew and always had time for us to stop the clubhouse or the local pub after our round. His commentary and very good natured personality provided so much more than mere transportation...and as I said, will reamin a highlight of our trip. To a person, everyone in our group has said it was the best money we spent and it is clear that our golf trip would have been far less memorable and enjoyable without John's assistance.


Wilson Party

I think the others in our group would agree that one thing that made the trip truly special is John MacFarlane. He is without question the best guide I/we have ever experienced. His knowledge is beyond reproach, he built an excellent rapport with the group, and in general made the trip smooth as silk for us. What sets him apart, in my opinion, is his ability to provide golf lessons and advice for the guys. He REALLY helped our guys, especially with their short games and putting. He has a great eye and a unique ability to articulate why what he is suggesting works. He is a winner, for sure.


Mary Connelly

There were many "high points" of the trip, but our group all felt that John Macfarlane who escorted us throughout Scotland, was definitely an asset. He is absolutely dedicated to the comfort, enjoyment and entertainment of his guests. At every locale, he went above and beyond the "call of duty" to make sure were always cared for. That level of attention to detail is a rare quality in this world. He is smart, funny and a very caring individual. You can be proud to have him represent H & B for any of your travelers. Our group feels fortunate to have met John. He will always be an integral part of the many fond memories we have from our trip. Mary Connelly, President, William Lyon Homes Nevada.


Michael Godwin (Micky)

A belated thank you for a great golf trip a few weeks ago (Davenport group). I had a great time as did all of the other guys. You added so much to the trip with your local knowledge about the area, the history, the courses, etc. Michael Godwin (Micky), Charlotte, NC


Tommy Geisel

I just wanted to drop you an email to thank you for such a wonderful trip. The weather, golf courses and amenities were all top notch, top notch! One detail which even further exceeded my expectations was the level of service we were afforded by our "driver." John Macfarlane. We all found John to be not only a wonderful tour guide, driver and advisor, but just a downright damn great guy. He is now a friend to us all, Thanks again. Thomas L. Geisel, Chambersburg, PA


Richard J. Weiss

Words cannot adequately describe the superb job don by our driver, John Macfarlane, who made the eight days i spent in Scotland with my son, a truly "once in a lifetime experience"' From the moment John met us at the airport baggage area, he immediately made us feel at home. He was always punctual, always paid attention to the details of the trip, and at our request, was always ready to make suggestions for site seeing trips and restaurants, every one of which turned out to be exactly what we were looking for. My son and I quickly became so attached to John that it was as if he was a member of our extended family who was showing around his home town. In conclusion, John was an essential part in making our golf and travel around Scotland as simple as possible so that for 8 days, we did nothing but enjoy the golfing and dining experiences. I look forward to my next golf vacation in Scotland and hope that we will be able to have John take care of us when we return. Richard J. Weiss, Esq. New York
