A few years ago I had the pleasure of playing and reviewing one of Canada’s most unique golf courses just outside of Merritt, BC – Sagebrush Golf & Sporting Club. It is definitely in the top 5 golf courses I have ever played and so when I heard that it was rescued from receivership by Newmark Group, a real estate ... Read More »

What Millennials Want in Golf

Last fall I posted a survey on my business website to try and learn why more millennials aren’t taking up golf and what could be done to entice them to give the sport a try. It was a bit of a slog trying to get kids to respond to the survey even with targeted ads on Facebook for the 17-25 age group ... Read More »

There’s an old adage that says, “Practice makes Perfect.”  But we all know that’s wrong – Practice makes Permanent.  Which is why I am so thankful that up until now, I never practiced my putting.  Why?  Because I had no idea what I was doing! Read More »

A Little Piece of Scotland Right In Your Own Backyard

Back in 2004, I was introduced to my first true links course at a Muscular Dystrophy charity tournament – the Links at Boundary Bay. As a fairly new golfer used to the tree lined cathedral called UBC and bridal gardens of a Mayfair Lakes, I was a little taken aback by the stark barren landscape that faced me. I distinctly ...

Tobiano is Worth the Drive

There’s a popular phrase, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. That’s how I approach birthdays. At our age we don’t “need” anything.
