The Cartbarnguys are coming to Ayrshire

Golf Social media sensations The Cartbarnguys are visiting Ayrshire.....



Kyle and Bobby Nuggets are famous for their love and passion of the game of golf and they just so happen to have a massive online following across the globe. They will be bringing their fun filled content to Ayrshire this August.

Kyle had this to say: "If you love golf the way I do, you need to find ways to play as much as possible.  Working in cart barns over the years have given me access to the game on all levels.  I became a CBG to give myself an opportunity to become a better golfer.  And after working in 5 different cart barns over the years, I have put myself in a position to try and compete at the highest level. ​

I was born in California and grew up in Austin, TX.  Austin is where I fell in love with the game.  I moved to Arizona in 2014 and started working at Papago Golf Course shortly after that.  Instagram was gaining popularity so I started an account to document the real life struggle of balancing working in the cart barn and trying to make it on to the PGA Tour.​

The concept and community has started to grow beyond just me. The Cart Barn Guys social media presence has become a national platform for showcasing players that are documenting their own grind.  We are now sharing stories of Cart Barn Guys everywhere.  ​

Who knows where this will lead us in the future. But one thing is abundantly clear: WE ALL LOVE GOLF!"

Well Kyle it has lead you to Scotland, The Home of Golf and we cant wait to have you!

Stay tuned to their Ayrshire adventure by following them on INSTAGRAM and YOUTUBE
