Playing Alberta Springs today in Red Deer heard its nice
Playing Castlegar Golf Club – one of the best courses in the Kootenays. Its a golden age golf club that was built in the 60’s
Tee off time at 12:22 today at Desert Blume!! Played a practice round yesterday great course set in the coolies, greens running around 11 on the stimp meter
Played the Canal Course at Delacour over the weekend for the first time, its a nice course with a decent routing and ample fairways. The Canal course gives you a linksy feeling on alot the holes with big mounds on either side of the fairway, the greens are big and tiered making it crucial to get onto the proper level or be a good lag putter. Overall a good experience only complaint would be the green speed and mosquito’s but that’s to be expected this time of year in Alberta as the golf season is just kicking off. I will have the review with pics up soon, check back again.
What a great old Donald Ross course. The course could probably host another open if it was longer its tough enough right now and great greens to putt on. Tonnes of History as the host of the first Ryder Cup Matches played and a US Open in which Bobby Jones lost in a playoff to boot. The website can be found here. Check back for my review of the course under course reviews.
Well one more day and my tour of Rhode Island is done, so far played Newport Country Club, Metacomet CC, Sakonnet GC and a 3hr drive to Bethpage Black thrown in for good measure!! Onto the the next course Wanumetonomy a classically restored Seth Raynor course. Check back for my reviews of these courses and check out my website to boot!
I have the fortunate opportunity to play Golf in Rhode Island in May, confirmed are Newport County Club, Sakonnet and Wanumetonomy Golf Clubs with hopefully a few more to come, the first two are which Donald Ross had a hand in designing and the Wanumetonomy is a classicly restored Seth Raynor course. Newport Country Club is a classic American course that is rich in history having hosted the first US Open and Amatuer. It is also one of the five founding members of the USGA
