went good, missed the rain, conditions were excellant. fairways and greens were really dry considering the amount of the rain we've had the last little bit.

its fairly wide open, nothing tricky about the course if you have the pda layout you should be fine.

there are some small corners you can cut going over bunkers and what not but nothing major. greens are medium sized some deceiving breaks (but i can't read greens to save my life). on some holes just make sure your on the right side of the green, some chips on specific sides of the greens are much much easier. mostly better to be short right or left chipping up hill on alot of them.

make sure you take enough club, ball isnt flying full distance yet, maybe 5 yds shorter or so.

Lloyd was teeing off from the back tees. On his down-swing, he suddenly realized that his wife, Jean, was about to tee off from the red tees, directly in his path. Unable to stop his down swing he nailed the ball, hit Jean directly in the right temple, killing her instantly.

A few days later Lloyd received a call from the coroner concerning her autopsy . "Lloyd, your wife seems to have died from blunt force trauma to the head. You said you hit a golf ball and struck her in the temple. Is that correct?"

"Yes sir," Lloyd replied, "that's correct."

"Well, Lloyd, I also found a large bruise on Jean's right hip. Do you know anything about that?"

"Yes sir," Lloyd said, "That would have been my mulligan."

Which Golf Town did you buy those from? Online only has steel shafts left. I think Tommy Armour irons are underrated

A friend and I are looking into starting up on golf. What are some other golf goods stores besides places like Sportchek, Golf Express (Station Square) and Golf Town?

We're not looking at getting anything crazy expensive because we just want to get a beginner set to play around with at first and upgrade later on.

Why don't you go to the place under the onramp (From Vancouver) of the Granville St. Bridge? Golf Liquidation I believe it's called. They're closing that shop so they have really good deals on stuff. It's older stuff, but you just want something cheap right?

Also if you play with older stuff when you get the newer stuff with better technology, your shot will be better =)
