Greetings from my fantastic suite in the Pechanga Casino/Resort in Temecula, CA. Loving the service and comfort level here at this resort.

The suite is very large and warm. The lovely bride and little guy are enjoying it.
Just finished having a very nice breakfast outside on the patio of the amazing clubhouse here (photo below), watching players tee off. Not a bad morning at all.
Pechanga clubhouse patio – looks like I want to be here this evening…
Tomorrow and the next day I’ll be having my own Journey at Pechanga as it is called. That’s golf on the well respected golf course here. More to come.
I took a stroll through the amazing clubhouse this morning as well. You could hit a full lob wedge in there, but with the rockwork on the walls it could be a little risky. 🙂

I’ve had a poll up and running for quite some time on the front page here which asked the question “What is the best airline for golf travel?” I’ve finally decided to end that poll and post the astounding results, which I completely agree with. Here they are below.
- US Airways (4%)
- United Airlines (5%)
- Southwest Airlines (60%)
- Jetblue Airlines (10%)
- Delta Airlines (8%)
- Continental Airlines (1%)
- British Airways (3%)
- American Airlines (10%)
Southwest Airlines resoundingly won with 60% of the voters picking them. The closest competitor was Jetblue airlines at only 10%.
I agree with this vote based on the two following primary reasons:
- Cost: Southwest is very competitive price-wise. Golf is expensive and we can travel more if the airfare is more affordable.
- Free baggage: To bring my golf clubs on Delta or another airline that charges for bags can run an extra $50-$150!!! That’s highway (airway) robbery.
Who is the WORST airline for golf travel? The previous HOG poll’s results can be found by clicking the link in the previous sentence.
The big HOG World Tour vacation is currently in London. I did not bring my sticks on this trip, just my cameras. Enjoy this one…

My trip is coming to an end and I’m sad about that, but happy to be heading home in a couple of days and getting back to golf blogging!
Well there isn’t a more picturesque place in the world than the fabulous island of Santorini, Greece. This is a bucket list travel destination without a doubt.
Just after sunset the lighting is unbelievable!
The HOG World Tour spend a couple of days here on a photo safari. My shutter finger is quite sore now.

Despite the unrest here in Greece with their financial crisis, tourists can still enjoy a vacation so long as they stay away from the rallies and areas shut down in Athens.
I’m on vacation in Greece.
Greetings From Athens, Greece
No golf clubs, just my Nikon and the best hat scripting ever to hit Athens. Talk soon.
