  1. Thanks Jumbo

    Had the pleasure to play a round at Pineview with a visitor from New Zealand. The lads name is "Jumbo"...and no, that's not his size. We were both playing singles on Monday and got put together starting on the 10th hole. This is where the fun began! I asked Jumbo if his golf game was okay. He...

  2. Golf Canada handicap app

    Anyone else having an issue entering a score online through the app? It gives me an error message along the lines of there being no slope or rating information available while the numbers are clearly right there. I am probably doing one simple thing incrorrect.

  3. What would they really shoot?

    Watching PGA events week after week is so impressive, but I always wonder, what would these guys shoot if they had no cameras, marshalls, fans and grandstands finding or keeping their ball in play? Many of these guys would lose 2 or 3 balls per round off the tee because it is next to...

    For the first time, I brought in a few drivers to test out at the Golftown in Kanata, hoping to figure out which of the two was giving me better numbers (and get a regrip while I was there). I couldn't believe the results....I wasn't getting any distance at all, even when it "felt" really good. ...

  10. Tree in the Fariway

    I never understood why courses place a large tree in the middle of the fairway...leaving you no options. Too large to go over...and I am not talented enough to hook it around the tree. I don't think the typical golfer should have to deal with that obstacle....seems silly.
