The season of golf tournaments is closely at hand. Regardless of which course you play, the deluge of tournaments is about to hit your local area. They take up tee times and sometimes directly affect your ability to play at your favourite time. Well, if you are new to the golf, it is important to understand that this is all part of the golf business. Many courses/clubs make their profits during these events and therefore try to balance the number of events with the demand for member tee times. I have made my peace with this dance and actually embrace the tournaments by participating in them as much as possible. For the most part, I find them fun, entertaining, and challenging all at the same time. However, I do have a favourite and intentionally seek this format out above all others.Continue reading
It is interesting that our golf swing can be spot on and then in the blink of an eye be gone for an hour. This is what happened to me a couple of days ago when Rick and I played in the final Senior Men’s 2-man scramble event. We both played very well in cool (7° C, 45° F) dry weather conditions. Actually, I should saw we played very well on the first nine!Continue reading
It is finally here, yesterday I played in the last Men’s Night of the year. It was a wet (big surprise) and cool, but loads of fun. We played rotating tees where we cycled through blue, white and gold tees. It was the first time played this format and we had a blast. Overall, last nights game was a good way to finish playing Men’s Night at Osprey Links.Continue reading
Today, I am playing in a 3-person with my friends Blair and Rick. It is going to be a great time and our results will depend on who shows up today. All three of us have struggled at various times, however when we are all on, we have a good chance to be in the prizes. Regardless, I like to play with a strategy….at least for the first few holes. 😉Continue reading
I mentioned playing in my first charity scramble yesterday in support of the North Bay Humane Society. This event is called the Monaghan and Furry Friends Scramble. It was held at Osprey Links Golf Course and again I can say that I was not disappointed.
I enjoy playing in these events because it helps me give back to my community and still play golf. How can this ever be a bad thing?Continue reading
