Today was a fantastic day! I traveled to Sudbury, Ontario, Canada, to play a round of golf with my friend (brother-in-law) on one of the best courses in Northern Ontario. Timberwolf Golf Club did not disappoint. The company was fantastic, the weather was hot and sunny, and the course was in excellent shape.
We played from the gold tees. This offered a par 72, 6500 yard challenge with plenty of bunkers and unique driving visuals. (Of course I forgot my camera in the car!) The fairways were short and lush, the greens held extremely well and the putts were true. The rough was about three inches long and thick. The only draw back was no first cut. You went from short lush fairways to thee inch rough…..made for a bit of a challenge for sure.
For the most part I hit fairways and greens. The couple of holes that I was off on my drive cost me at least on stoke. I had two penalty strokes, but overall I was extremely happy with my overall game. I had one birdie and chances at four more. Actually, I had 10 birdie putts, but five were from over 20 feet so I don’t really count those as birdie opportunities.
Today was a reason why I love to golf. Mostly, I spent four hours with a friend talking, laughing and enjoying our time on the links. It truly was a great time. Thanks Bruce!
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
