Ep 204: Mike Keiser
On a recent trip to The Dunes Club in Michigan, Erik was fortunate enough to sit down with the "Willy Wonka of Golf", Mr. Mike Keiser. Mike talks about the inspiration behind creating his now world-renowned golf resort Bandon Dunes, how being in the greeting card business somehow helped his approach to the golf business, adopting simplistic aspects of the game in Ireland and Scotland to his ventures, and secretly driving the shuttle at Bandon Dunes to hear how his customers really feel!  For more golf content, be sure to follow along on RandomGolfClub.com RANDOM GOLF CLUB/// Web: www.randomgolfclub.com Instagram: @randomgolfclub Twitter: @randomgolfclub Facebook: www.facebook.com/randomgolfclub ERIK ANDERS LANG/// Web: www.erikanderslang.com Instagram: www.instagram.com/erikanderslang Twitter: www.twitter.com/erikanderslang Facebook: www.facebook.com/erikanderslang YouTube: www.youtube.com/user/eriklang12 WHOOP/// Web: www.whoop.com Social: @whoop JONES SPORTS CO/// Web: www.jonessportsco.com Social: @jones_sports_co PRECISION PRO GOLF/// Web: www.precisionprogolf.com Instagram: @precisionprogolf Twitter: @preprogolf TAYLORMADE GOLF/// Web: www.taylormadegolf.com Social: @taylormadegolf VICE GOLF/// Web: www.vicegolf.com Instagram: @vicegolf Twitter: @vice_golf EXPRESS VPN/// Web: www.expressvpn.com Instagram: @expressvpn Twitter: @expressvpn FEETURES/// Web: www.feetures.com Instagram: @feetures Twitter: @Feetures THERAGUN/// Web: www.theragun,com Instagram: @theragun Twitter: @theragun STUART KERR /// PRODUCER Social; @stuartlkerr Learn more about your ad choices.
