hello World... I guess that doesn't quite have the same stigma as when Tiger Woods announced those same words in 1996 :)

I've been a golfer since my days as a junior, and recently got back into the game after a 6 year hiatus due to personal reasons. I thought my game would be much rustier, but other than my touch around the green, everything came back after a few rounds and a few trips to the practice range. I used to play to a handicap on the plus side of 0, but I no longer have the time for 250-300 rounds a year.

I'm a lover of all things golf, history, technology, and course design. I would describe myself as a feel player, although I love a good technical discussion. I am more of a traditionalist which seems to transcend most aspects of my game and love for the game, but like I said, I like technology as well. My clubs are old, but they still work.

My favourite golfers used to be Nick Faldo, and Davis Love III. I still like them, but I have a tremendous amount of respect for Tigers whole approach to the game, and being Canadian, I guess I should be rooting for Mike Weir.

Looking forward to hanging out here, you seem like a friendly bunch.

Cheers, Allan

Welcome Iceman,

I joined the boards around 18 months ago looking for men's leagues in Vancouver, as I was moving here from Edmonton area. Lived at Furry Creek for 1 year and now in West Van for the last 6 months. Haven't played more than 5 rounds in the last 6 months (terrible, I played 100/year in Edmonton). Busy and no men's club to keep me at it. Just came down with the golf bug again after playing a few rounds and shooting my handicap...

What part of town are you in??

I'm in Burnaby, about a solid par 5 from Vancouver Golf Club :)

I changed careers in late spring, so I have not had very much chance to golf this summer. I had a very promising start this spring... but since then have not had very much chance to play.

I was able to get out to Northview and Morgan Creek a few times, but having been a 250 round per year player in the past... this year didn't cut it :(

I know what you mean...I used to play 100 rounds a year until I moved to the North Shore from Edmonton (business start-up). 18 months and I might have 40 rounds in...5 in the last 6 months. I only started playing golf in my late 20's (36 now), but got down to an 8 handicap in 3 years of serious play, that's with no long iron play at all. Living on the 3'rd at Furry Creek for a year provided me with a free

driving range (the 3'rd Tee) to work on my long irons. I was surprised the last couple of games that although my short game became very rusty, the new developed long game (marginally better), allowed me to shoot my handicap. Now I'm officially down with the golf bug again...
