The Golf Trip 2012 Look Back

Well, I forgot to make an entry for the golf trip I organize for 2012:  The Golf Trip 2012. This year’s golf trip featured 18 guys going to Kelowna, BC.  It was our first time golfing in Kelowna for this trip and for many of us it was the first time golfing in Kelowna.  Kelowna … Continue reading

Jan 1 Golfity

Continuing the tradition to 2012, myself, Tony Roy and Kevin Ma all got out for a round on January 1st again. We booked a tee time at a more expensive course in the area, Morgan Creek.  Known for being a good course, in unreal shape.  They brag about their drainage.  Anyway, time was booked and … Continue reading

My 2012 Golf Season Look Back

My 2012 Golf Season Look Back

Well, it’s December tomorrow and I haven’t golf in two months.  Mostly because of the weather (I don’t golf in the winter, I play hockey), but partially because I had a new baby two months too!  That’s been awesome. So needless to say, my 2012 golf season was over at the end of September.  Pretty … Continue reading

FTW Review of Surrey Golf Course

FTW Review of Surrey Golf Course

You’re probably thinking “Surrey? Yikes”. But this is one of my all time favs. You’ll be hard pressed to find better value in Vancouver’s Lowermainland. What it has going for it: 1 – first off its easy to get a tee time. Not because it’s not busy, because it is. I more mean you can … Continue reading

FTW Review of McLeery Golf Course, Vancouver

Five and a half hours.  That’s how long of a round we had a McLeery in Vancouver about a month ago. Located in South Vancouver it’s the second best of the City owned course, behind Fraserview. And McLeery is no question a quality track. Especially for the price. Great location, decent condition and some great … Continue reading

Hazelmere Golf Course

Hazelmere Golf Course

I was raised a 15 min drive from Hazelmere golf club in South Surrey and had never played the course up until last year. And last weekend I played it twice back to back making a total of three rounds played all time. Overall I’d give the course a 5.5 out of 10. It’s in … Continue reading

Majors Pool Rules

Majors Pool Rules

OK, I thought I’d throw up the rules we use for our Majors Pool.  It’s a solid golf pool that incorporates all of the four majors plus the TPC.  Basically one tourney per month from April to August.  I don’t like weekly fantasy golf pools, as they’re very cumbersome as you have to set your … Continue reading

Recording my Handicap Dilemma

Recording my Handicap Dilemma

I hope everyone has kick started their golf season.  I know I got mine underway mid March.  I even played as a single last week after my buddy bailed on me with a 6am text message!  Thanks.  And I had the round of my life going +2 after 14 holes…too bad I have to count … Continue reading
