Shooting The Best Golf Score Ever!

After thousands of rounds of golf, I thought that there was very little left to accomplish given my skill level. Well, last Thursday during in our scramble Men’s Night competition I reached a new milestone. The four man scramble was played at the Mattawa Golf and Ski Resort, my home course. When we first started playing, Mike, Barry, Charlie and I had hopes of playing well because of the favourable scoring conditions. And score well we did. Starting at the first hole, we played golf at a higher level than normal; Ii was very exciting and a great deal of fun. I am grateful I was able to participate is that magical round.

Last Minute Father’s Day Golf Gift

Sunday is Father’s Day! I bet some of you are scrambling trying to thing of what to get someone for Father’s Day. Well, as a golfer who loves any gift from his daughter, I have learned over the years to gently guide my daughter what to buy. It is not that I am a golf gift snob, but it is important that if I am receiving a golf gift it fit into my game.

Buying A New Golf Bag

After 10 years, I decided to buy a new golf bag. I looked around on the net, but decided to make the 3.5 hour trek to Golf Town in Ottawa to have a better understanding of what I was looking for in a new cart bag. I knew I wanted something smaller than my Ping bag, but with enough pockets to hold all my stuff. Additionally, I wanted it to be lighter for when I am pushing it around the golf course. Fortunately, I found what I was looking for and in a unique pattern that I quite like.

Playing Poorly and Having An Awesome Time On The Golf Course

Many golfers lament about playing poor golf. It becomes all encompassing and they forget about the other aspects of hitting the links. Last Friday, my old golfing crew played at my home course of Mattawa Golf and Ski Resort. We played early in the day and were finished to by lunch. We are trying to play together at least once a month since I changed golf courses this year and so far we are hitting that goal. As we looped my home course, I can say that my golf was less than stellar, but he 3.5 hours on the links was the best round of the year.
