No discussions and no comments. LOL

I am Canadian and guess what?  Have never eaten poutine and have had only one bottle of Moosehead.

Now how do you get Canadians out of a pool on a real hot summer day.

Just holler. O.K. everyone out of the pool now.

Only if you're real nice and don't post anything nasty or not at all! LOL

Really though.  All forums are open to participation and foreigners within sight are welcome.

Born in P.E.I. lived coast to coast and currently live in Quebec, terrible climate for golf :-( It's minus 20 today and it cost 35$ an hour at the indoor dome. GRUMBLE GRUMBLE but...we have awesome beer!

I suppose the best weather for golf in Canada would be around Windsor.

The coast is too wet in the winter.

winter has been so open here in Digby that a few diehards have golfed almost every day. The odd snowfall doesn't stop them; that's why coloured balls were invented. (Note the Canadian spelling, eh?) Courses began opening in early March last year, and while i hope that happens again in a little over a month, can't count on Nature being so nurturing for golf ambitions.

Moosehead is available here, of course, but I prefer Keith's.

So I am guessing that Digby is in Nova Scotia.

Isn't global warming wonderful.

Why they want to stop it is beyond me.

Snow and cold weather in Rome and Europe.

Maybe the climate has just reversed.

I am in Northern Ontario and the earliest the golf courses have opened the greens is in April.

I hate temporary greens and will golf late into the season instead.  It might be cold but at least the greens are in good shape.

I'm getting old and don't mind stopping come December. Still, it was seven degrees here yesterday, sunny and with light winds, and as i walked the back nine, i saw a threesome heading up the third hole. There were patches of snow on the fairways, but lots of grass and i felt i should have carried an iron and a couple of balls. Oh, well, there's snow in tonight's forecast...and i can wait a little while yet for the season to open.

Ya, pretty similar for me here. Not looking quite as warm as 14 in the near forecast. But our highs for the next two weeks are supposed to be hanging around 7 or 8 degrees..  And to add to the excitement I just got my new Ogio Mammoth travel bag today! Gotta love new equipment!

I don't know about that; I got 9 rounds in during February. Live on the East Coast of Vancouver Island. My home course has great drainage and we play year round no problem

hey Rednax, what's the golf like in Fort McMurray? Lived in Calgary for 5 years and got up to FM a couple times on business at that time. Not that I was looking for a golf course, but curious as to what the courses and golf are like.

Golf is actually pretty good up here.  We have 3 courses up here and one more on the way.

Quarry Ridge - A par 3 course. Not bad, but has not been established so the grounds are pretty hard.  It can be fun for a quick and cheap round of course.

Miskinaw Golf Club - Has been a great golf club. Relatively established with a great greenskeeper. It has been undergoing some renovations lately so it has had a couple detours and temporary greens. The renovations they have made have been great though. They have some beautiful new holes along the river and some great scenic areas.

Fort McMurray Golf Club - Is the more difficult course in Fort McMurray and the most established. It has some amazing views along another area of the river and some gentle elevation changes.  It is also home to the Boreal Open. This is definitely the favoured course in Fort McMurray although tee times fill up really quick.

We have a new golf club that is being built, I believe it will be called Rotary Golf Club. I don't think it will be open for a couple more years. If your ever heading up let me know. I imagine Toronto has quite a few nice courses.

    • It looks like the same scenario as DJ and Wattel in the open. Proximity of the golfer deforms the ground and the ball rolls off the blades of grass it was perched on. I think it's a bad penalty, because it's essentially random, though much more likely on very fast & sloped greens.
    • I liked Chappell as a possible pick early in the playoffs. He's a solid ballstriker with good length and the original 8 were a little thin there. If his putting has come alive during the playoffs (he's 'found' something) and his birdie average has bumped up then he would be a solid pick IMO. I think he'd be more of a contributor in fourball than foursomes with relatively weaker putting / short game than guys already on the team. Berger seems to have the most balanced game of the remaining pick options. McGirt and Woodland wouldn't be bad picks either. Justin Thomas may be a good 'chemistry' pick, but his stats for the year seem like he's got a very 'hit or miss' style of game. Maybe he was saving it for the end of the season, though? Moore would be an okay pick, but I expect he's a little short for Hazeltine (ballstriking is not his strength) and the squad already has Sneds and Zach. Duf wouldn't be a bad pick either if his game is on form and his putting has warmed up a bit.
    • On the penalty assessed to Justin Thomas, this will lead all golfers to mark their ball before putting anything but a tap in.  If he marks the ball and the places the ball back down, the ball probably won't move as it did.  With millions on the line, a player needs to mark the ball and inspect the putting surface.  Just a bad rule in my opinion but the ruling was correct.  Guilty until proven innocent.
    • If it is a municipal (city owned) course there may be no support from the city to maintain it beyond the absolute minimum. Truth is, cities have budgets and there is no money appropriated to improve it.  It really is a vicious circle.  Poorer conditions result in fewer rounds being played.  Costs out weigh revenue, rates are raised so even fewer people play the course and that results in less revenue.  It becomes an anchor on the city budget and easy prey for an investor.  So many muni courses have disappeared. John
    • After reading all these stories of how rarely it has happened to you guys I feel like an absolute menace on the golf course.   First time I ever hit into a group in front of me it was a blind approach into the green.  I drove my cart to the top of the hill to get a line on the flag.  One guy was getting his ball out of the hole and another guy was carrying the flag back to the hole.  I figured that by the time I got back to my ball they would be gone.  I lined up my shot, took several practice swings, checked my line again, and then blasted a beautiful, high, straight shot over the hill, right on line at the flag.  Pulled back up the hill and saw they were still putting.  Went up to apologise, and they congratulated me on a great shot.  He said it clipped the brim of his hat as he was tapping in and checked up a foot from the cup.  They also insisted that I play thru. Second time I did it on that course I sliced my drive two fairways over and hit into a cart on the move up the cart path. It rattled around in the cart and they both dove out of the cart for cover. Happened a few times on my home course too.  Several holes have blind drives and approaches due to all the hills in East Tennessee.  When play is slow you inevitably catch someone in a blind spot.  I got stuck behind a slow group one day and had to wait for ever shot from the 4th hole on.  By the 6th a young twosome had caught up to my group because of the slow play in front of us.  By the back nine they started getting impatient and driving onto us.  On hole 14 the preferred shot is to hit 170-200 yard layup from the tee to leave a 130-160 yard uphill shot into a blind green.  I was about 150 yards out waiting on the green to clear when they teed off.  Their ball rolled right up to my feet.  I turned around angry and hit their ball right back at them.  I was so ticked I blasted my 150 yard club at least 200 yards back at them flying over their head and into the woods behind the tees.  Didn't see them anymore that day.
