Personal Notes

"From the Golf Professional escorting the group to Portugal”.

Hi everyone,

 

I’m extremely excited about teaming up with Firdosh and MyEscapades, and being part of the team as a golf instructor & host taking you on some amazing Golf & Travel vacations. 

After working for a few years in the golf industry, my Head Golf Professional and employer, suggested that I should try the Playing Ability Test and become a PGA of Canada member. I took his advice, and qualified by finishing 2nd out of 108 participants.That particular day only 9 people qualified to get their card.  A couple of years after that, my path in golf changed and it turned into a full-time teaching career. 

I have had the opportunity to work with university and professional sports coaches, as well as strength & conditioning coaches. I have also had the opportunity to caddie for players on the PGA & LPGA TOURS, PGA Tour of Canada, Korn Ferry &  Symetra Tours. These experiences have been an invaluable asset to my teaching and have  helped myself and others be better; both physically and mentally.

This along with my sports background, playing and practising with some of the best players in many sports, and having some great mentors, has produced my style of teaching…..“Simple, Concise & Fun”

I look forward to being part of team creating these unforgettable Golf & Travel vacations for you! They will surely give you memories and stories that will last a lifetime!

See you soon!

“From the desk of: Firdosh Bulsara, Director

I am very excited to have Vince Dwyer team-up with MyEscapades and lead our International Golf Holidays. Vince has a way of connecting with people, with his relaxed and wonderful style of teaching.  I was able to witness this firsthand before I actually met him. One day, a few years ago, while on the driving range, I couldn’t help but overhearing his teaching to one of his clients.  I was impressed and knew right then that I had found the right golf professional to team up with for our business venture.

 

Since then, I have gotten to know Vince a lot more. In addition to being kind, sincere and caring, he is a great teacher. My two sons would whole-heartedly attest to it after having taken series of lessons from him. And even though you won’t find Vince on any social media platforms (he is a little too reserved for that), what you will find is that Vince will definitely make your golfing experience and the trip a lot of fun!

 

Enjoy!
