Takaya in North Van has had an ongoing online coupon(print it out and show them) for almost a year now. you get 4 buckets for the price of three. and, you get 90 balls/bucket before 6pm weekdays. that = .054/ball

they ALWAYS take the coupon regardless of the date - they have a lame webmaster

we print 2 coupons every week and use them - still good!

I was interupted while reading your post and misread what you wrote. You should have heard me cursing you....I read (quickly) that you "should ditch the office and play around....my girlfriend is in early labour" . I won't tell you what went through my mind............I humbly apoligize

From experience, early labour can last 2 days (trust me, I went through it).
Go have a game and relax....it will be your last time for awhile

And, incase I miss the annoucement.........congratulations to all on the birth of your new child

barely made the last sunlight @ Seymour last night. teed off @ 4:20, so any later would have been too late. other than that, what a nice course. so well groomed. fairways...mint. bit pricey, but other than that, i really liked it.

btw,i think non-members can only play mondays or fridays.

weather should hold out for you hopefully. i drizzled a bit over here at fraserview from about 5-530am and looks like it'll be decent for most of the day.

I've never been to Golden Eagles before, looks nice on the website. Is it anywhere near Pitt Meadows or Meadow Gardens? Those are the only ones I've played out there...

see the red balloon, that Neaves Rd. as you can see, its about 5 minutes southeast of Swaneset. i suggest playing the North Course. the South Course is a bit shorter,bit easier.

hey guys, problem..

i got myself a cheap beginner set at sportschek, but there seems to be a problem..
at first, i got a set of Dunlop DDH for $200, but after a week or so, my driver dented and cracked.. so i went back to sportschek and the manager was nice enough to let me return it (i used all of the clubs already)

now, i got myself a set of rams, because it was stiffer and i got a pretty aggressive swing.. (the dunlop feels too light). it's perfect and it's only $129.99!
however, i was hitting at the driving range for these couple days.. after about 40 balls on the driver, it started to DENT AGAIN! no cracks yet.. but i am sure it's going to fuck up soon.


is it me or the club? i gotta admit i swing pretty hard..
the dent is at the back of the club face.. you know.. the back part when you lie it on the ground..

and no i didn't drop it. give me some pointers! should i keep it and wait for it to break and go buy another driver, or just return it to sportschek again?

thanks guys!

if your getting dents on the bottom of the club, you must be contacting the bottom with something. if you dont hit any of the poles or stalls aroudn you, it must be a ball or something. do you top the ball?

i've seen clubs dent at the bottom because of topped balls so its not uncommon. i've seen it w/ expensive drivers and cheap ones, just that part of the driver isn't made for ball contact thats all. if its from an inexpensive full set i wouldn't worry too much about it, just whale away man.

You're lucky you got a refund after you dented your first driver. If you are hitting the ball with the face, there's no way it can dent on the back of the head -- it could maybe crack on the face. You must be doing something like dropping the club on the ground or topping the ball as mentioned.

Also, if you're just starting out I would suggest taking easier, more controlled swings for a while until you can consistently make good contact.

Can you post pics of the club? IMO, might be your stance if you're topping the ball. Try these tips? http://golf.about.com/od/golftips/a/hitting460cc.htm

I'm in the market for new irons. I went to golftown and swung the X18s and X Tours as they're both on sale. I have '04 Big Berthas now so I'm slightly partial to Callaways. Anyway, I liked them both but found the X18s were a lot softer to hit because they're much more forgiving. So now I'm in a rut. Do I buy the more forgiving club that are basically no different than what I'm using now? Or do I buy the X tours which are slightly harder to hit, but will give me something to work on?

The main reason I'm buying new irons is because I'm taking lessons in the offseason and want a new fitted set to learn properly on.

I think I'll go down to Birdies and Buckets in Surrey and hit the Callaways as well as the R7s and even try some Nikes. Its nice they have a golftown right there at the range. They'll tape anything up and let you hit them there rather into some video screen.

FYI - Costco has an awesome deal for Whistler Golf course. $100 for a green fee, bucket of warmup balls and a $15 food voucher. Played it last weekend and it's easily worth the drive. Very well maintained course as you would expect.

my boss just gave me two of those as a little bonus. sold them on craigslist for $150 in a few hours.

btw, if you have the $$$ and you like Callaway, try the FT series of irons. wow, they hit like butter. the caveat though is that everybody hits differently, and just because you get the most expensive,newest technology equipment doesn't necessarily mean they're the clubs for you. i read once golfers should'nt pick the clubs, let the clubs pick the golfer. so true. whatever you get,make sure you try them out first,preferably in a few rounds of golf. hard to do, i know. also, make sure you get them fitted for your swing and body type. if you are tall for example, order them long from the factory(most stores will do that for you). don't get stock length off the shelf and later on get them lengthened from the fitter(lengthening/new grips=$$$$$).
