Just scored a pretty good deal on a Taylormade Burner and 3 Wood from Golf Town. They're both brand new for $129.87 total. SKU # 301447301

Last I heard Richmond Golf Town has a few Stiff sets left. Coquitlam location also has stock but best to call beforehand.

They're these clubs

I still have the next week off of work, anyone want to play with me? My schedule is pretty much open for any golf activity. A course, or even pitch and putt is fine with me, I just want to get out there!

This sign needs to be on every golf course.

We were stuck behind a foursome at Pheasant Glen a few weeks ago who were playing off the championship (black) tees. The group consisted of 2 women who didn't know how to swing, an elderly gentleman who drove it maybe 225, and a man in his '40s who actually seemed to be pretty good.

It's a 6928 yard course off the blacks.

Fucking 3.5 hours to do 9 holes. Bailed after that shit.

Just got the iphone 6+, the slow mo is AMAZING! Here's my drive on hole 7 (I think) at Point Roberts.


Any swing tips? After taking a few videos and analyzing them myself I have determined and started fixing these things
-upswing more above the swing plane, downswing goes slightly below
-over rotation of hips and body, plant more into the ground
-Allow the arms to swing through, my finish was way too upright
-on upswing try to keep the right arm straighter for a longer period of time
-shorten upswing a lot!

Any other tips that I am missing? Thanks all

Played 15 holes, shot a 85 (To be super fair I think adding 10 would more than cover the lost balls). The mosquitoes were way to fucked up by 8pm so we walked the course and I rushed 18 and didnt input that score.

i wrote it down on the score card, but I wasnt sure how it was suppose to be played. I just dropped a ball where i stood and hit again.

First 9 I lost 5 balls, and the last 6 holes never wrote it down cause the bugs were getting bad, but maybe lost 2 or 3 balls.

Just came across a pretty wicked deal for golfers and non-golfers.

https://www.groupon.com/deals/one-under-vancouver
$64 for two hours of golf simulation and two pizzas worth $15 each.

This place is great for girlfriends and friends that don't golf. You don't have to be good to have a fun time.

I highly recommended it for this price.

the water restrictions are obvious on the fairways out at Riverway, but of course the greens are kept in awesome shape.

Any local chat groups/whatsapp group for 604 golfers?

I just started 14 months ago but caught the bug hard and been trying to play at least once a week ever since (yes even during last winter). I'm always playing with my dad and his guys because all my buddies play basketball. I'm really looking for just a recreational group at this point. I'm a chill dude and shoot in mid-high 90s, do a good job in keeping up pace as long as we're playing ready golf

Played University Golf course over the weekend. The fairways are in the worst possible condition. They have barely any grass alive...

Unfortunately their fairways are completely destroyed, no grass or soft dirt to hit from. Every shot on the fairway felt like hitting off of concrete. For example any high iron shot landing on the fairway would bounce, as if it hit the cart path...

Most courses have somehow gotten water through aquifers or trucked in water to keep the courses in "okay" shape.. University Golf course have resulted in spraying the burnt grass green to keep it somewhat presentable.

northlands today, course was in pretty good condition. sand traps were nice and firm and easy to get out of. Marshalls were in full effect, smoking ban on the course...we got warned even though we didn't even even smoke on course. some of the old timers playing there are dicks BTW.

Played Surrey yesterday. Still fallen trees lining pretty much each fairway that were blown down during the storm. Kinda sucked losing balls in places they would normally be easily found. Glad I wasn't playing $6 ProV1s like my brother.. I'd suggest avoiding this course until they've done a better job cleaning it up.

I'm bringing a buddy out, trying to get him hooked like I am, so he's a beginner, between Fraserview and Riverway, which one would be more forgiving?
