Escaping Winter: Palm Springs Trip!

A week in Palm Springs has come and gone way too quickly and we’re immersed once again in the daily grind of a dry Calgary winter.

Golf Nutrition: How Do You Get Energized?

Whether you’re heading out for a round of golf or heading into the office for the day (hopefully the former), it doesn’t take a PhD to figure out that getting something into your system that’s well balanced and nutritious to sustain your energy is crucial for maintaining a high level of awesomeness.

Review: Bayonet Black Horse (Bayonet Course)

The Monterey Peninsula is known as a golfing haven, most notably for Pebble Beach Golf Links. However, there is more to golfing the peninsula than paying the big bucks to golf along ocean cliffs.

Golf Warm Up – Getting Your Round Started Right

Although I try my best to ignore what other people are doing on the range, I can’t help but notice on occasion how other people perform their golf warm up before a round. I’ll often notice fellow amateurs sabotaging themselves during their pre-round warm up. I’ve seen clubs thrown, self degrading curses after poor shots,…

Beth and I were lucky enough to play here because of reciprocal playing privileges with the Calgary Golf and Country Club. It was the day after Beth’s half marathon in Vancouver during our August 2013…
