leadership Team

Michael O'Toole

Managing Partner
A lifelong New Englander, Mike has taken his passion for golf and travel and has been planning golf experiences across the globe since 2007. With a heritage traced back to County Mayo, Ireland Mike has a natural preference to the links and pubs of Ireland. He has what some may call an unhealthy obsession with links golf as he once spent a summer playing 53 rounds in 60 days along the coastline of Ireland. Mike lives in Simsbury, CT with his wife Jenn, and his two children, Corinne and Emmett.

John Fanning

Director of Sales
A PGA Professional that formerly lived the club pro life, John has worked in nearly every aspect of golf. He graduated from the Professional Golf Management program at Coastal Carolina University and has been immersed in the game his entire life. Starting out mowing greens in the wee hours of the morning to running merchandising operations in the golf shop, John fully understands the golf industry as a whole. He resides in Port Saint Lucie, FL, and plays out of PGA Golf Club. He is another team member with lineage traced back to Ireland, in Co Limerick, and is passionate about golf travel and playing the mystical links across the world.

David Reid

Managing Partner
32 years in corporate America focused on global financial software and services could not keep David from his two favorite pastimes: Golf & Travel. David joined Fairways to Heaven Golf Travel in 2016 following many memorable golf experiences as a client. Having spent five years in London, he has been fortunate to travel throughout the UK and Europe and play many of the top golf courses in the world. This fueled his enthusiasm for golf and a strong desire to work with all who share the same passion. David appreciates the game of golf for its etiquette, versatility, competition, and camaraderie. His goal to visit and play the top 50 golf courses in the world aligns perfectly with Fairways to Heaven Golf and its clients. David resides in Pawleys Island SC with his wife Sue and is a short drive away from his daughter Katie, son in law Brad and granddaughter Reese in Charleston SC; and a short flight to NYC from his son Michael.

Dave Kerr

Manager
Growing up on the links golf courses of Scotland, Dave now lives in Scotland's capital Edinburgh with his wife Pam and 2 teenage daughters Robyn and Cameron. Back in 2019 he left a career working on mergers and acquisitions in finance behind to pursue his first love of working in golf. Dave likes to keep his number of memberships as close to his handicap as possible so splits his time between Archerfield in East Lothian, Cruden Bay in Aberdeenshire, Prince's in Kent and The St Andrews Golf Club.

Susan Berggren

Director
Born and raised in California, Susan picked up the game of golf in her mid-twenties and has worked in the golf industry for over 15 years. She enjoys exploring new golf destinations and creating that "just perfect" golf experience. She is currently residing in Plymouth, Massachusetts, with her husband Nore and son Joseph, both avid golfers. Her goal is to beat them straight up someday. In the summer, you will see her working on her golf game or on her phone planning that next big trip.

Donald McLeod

Senior Travel Consultant
Donald has been a keen golfer since he was a young boy and his goal is to beat his age; only 4 shots off it recently! He has played hundreds of golf courses and with his local knowledge, will deliver your perfect trip with extraordinary service and good humour. Donald lives in Perth, Scotland, married to Allison and very proud of his two grown up daughters, Rebecca & Catherine. One of his greatest pleasures is to guide nervous golfers off the 1st tee at the Old Course, St Andrews, down one of the widest Fairways to Heaven.
