    Join now!?

    Wow, I think July 16 qualifies as the earliest I've ever seen an offer of: "join for next year now and play the rest of this year free" It feels like this season just started!

    My bad buddy.Candian FB page says: Join now and save 50% on 2019 membership. When i was a member there in 2006, they offered my wife a membership for the rest of the season (August 2006) and 2007. It was a great deal and we joined. Sorry for the confusion.

    Can you post the email ad? Or send it to me via PM? I'm moving near Carleton Place and looking at Mississippi.

    Thanks. I've played them both and Mississippi is definitely on the short list. With this deal it's almost a no brainer. Did the math with golf xtra and I only have to play 25 rounds this year and next to break even plus the course is usually in good shape. At least it use to be.

    Seriously considering Mississippi considering it will be 10 mins from my new place. I've played there lots so I know the course but has anyone played this year and can comment on the greens? I'm hearing Ottawa didnt fare out well with their greens this year.

    Havenít played there but all the courses I have played have recovered incredibly well. Meadows greens were basically destroyed in May and you would never know it now. Same with Stonebridge and lots of others
    I got a fever. And the only prescription is more golf equipment.

    The greens at Mississippi are in fantastic shape. They did not get damaged as bad as others in the Ottawa area. Currently they are in pristine condition. You wont be disappointed.

    Mississippi is in amazing shape, significantly better than the Canadian. You also get the luxury of not playing 5.5 hour rounds, or just not being able to book at all because of one of the 4 tournaments per week.

    Pulled the trigger today and played. Course is in amazing shape. Bugs were horrible! Deer flies everywhere! I forgot how trick some of the blind tee shots are and how small some of the greens are. It will take a few rounds to figure out what club to use and aiming points. Hopefully getting tee times wont be hard.
