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!

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

The coast is too wet in the winter.

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.

    • Okay, I gave you those (and removed the 80 one). An 11 index broke par, eh?
    • Trust me, it happens and not due to abuse. I broke a brand new macGregor 3 iron on the very first swing at the driving range after pops bought me the clubs. On my downswing, the head flew off as soon as the ball was hit.The ball bounded about ten feet to the right, the head about 10 yards to the left. The driver I posted above was about 15 years old and never abused. It was my all time favorite club so it was well cared for and I am too cheap to bust clubs out of childish fits of rage. The club also hadn't been used in a decade, then maybe 20 strikes this summer, just as the OP said, head dangling off strands of graphite. The guy who is repairing it has had a hell of a time extracting the shaft from the hosel, too.
    • Just want to get the word out on a relatively new golf ball company, that seemingly makes a great product.  Similar to my Cut Golf topic. Sphera Golf is a new company (debuted in March I believe) that currently offers two different types of golf balls.  The Pro Threes, and the Pro Fours.  The Pro Threes are a 3 piece urethane cover ball that appears to be trying to play the role of ProV1 in their line up.  Their ProV1 X is the Pro Fours, it is a 4 piece urethane cover ball.  I've been playing the Pro Fours off and on this week and for me they seem to perform every bit as well as any other 4 piece urethane cover golf ball. Prices for the Pro Fours start off at $24.99 a dozen while the Fours go for $30 a dozen.  I hope to update this thread with further impressions as I have more time with the ball, but early returns is that it is good ball for the price.
    • Dropped off some old golf shorts and shirts at a local Goodwill store today, My waist size is now 32", and the 34's and 36's were falling off of me! I kept some of the nicer 34's just in case! After the drop off I went into the store to see if there were any golf clubs worth looking at. The selection was pretty sparse, but I did find a Taylor Made R580XD and an original Callaway ERC II! The ERC II even has a stamping on the heel of the club that states, "Non-conforming to USGA rules". This was the club that made for the big kerfuffle, and lawsuit, between Callaway and the USGA. I bought them both and will go try them out. Considering modern golf technology, I'm not expecting much. But, if I can't hit them, I'll pass them on. Maybe the next guy can. At 2 bucks a club, how could I go wrong?! Dang! I hit the J instead of the H in the title!
    • Not a bad idea. I have some impact stickers on their way in the mail, when they get here I'll try that out, thanks!
