The Road to Scratch Update: Breaking Slumps

It's been an interesting run since my last update. Just after my handicap index entered new territory on the heels of a great round, I seemed to almost immediately fall into a little slump. I have no explanation as to why this happened, except to say that it's just golf. During a stretch of about … Continue reading The Road to Scratch Update: Breaking Slumps

Review: Dinosaur Trail Golf and Country Club

Dinosaur Trail Golf and Country Club is located in Drumheller, Alberta, only 110 km east of Calgary among the beautiful Canadian Badlands.

The Road to Scratch Update: New Territory

The surroundings immediately made me forget about … Continue reading Review: Wintergreen Golf and Country Club

The course itself is young (opening in 2011) which shows in the trailer-like pro shop and gravel parking lot, but the course itself feels mature beyond it's years. The par 72 layout designed by Gary Player can … Continue reading Review: Wildstone Golf Course

Review: Shadow Mountain Golf Course

Shadow Mountain Golf Course was the second stop on our boys golf excursion to the Cranbrook, British Columbia area. To be honest, we didn't know very much about the course heading in. We figured for $89 including a cart and range balls on a Saturday and a name like Shadow Mountain, it had to be … Continue reading Review: Shadow Mountain Golf Course

Review: St. Eugene Golf Resort

St. Eugene Golf Resort was the first of three rounds on a boys trip to the mountains near Cranbrook, British Columbia. With a population of less than 20,000 people, it's absolutely incredible the quality of golf you can find within miles of Cranbrook. The three courses we played: St. Eugene, Wildstone Golf Course and Shadow Mountain Golf Course, … Continue reading Review: St. Eugene Golf Resort
