In the past.........

From what I have seen in the past, unless they have put in considerably more drainage, it will be very wet and mucky with all the rain we have had the last bit.

That course doesn't seem to dry out very fast.

I hope the rain stays away for the rest of the week then...anything to help. Nothing worse than losing your ball in the center of the fairway...not that I will be anywhere near the center of the fairway.

Shocking Greens!!!

The greens on the North course looked like they had been punched about a week ago and they played like rough pavement. Reading the break did not help, all you could do was throw it at the hole and hope for the best. The Men's night dinner was good though, the Maui Ribs were fantastic. The only major problem was the pylons that did not read the rules, and were playing off the whites, instead of the blues for the KP and LD. Not that I could hit a green mind you.
Oh well, back out tonight...golfing weather is here!!!!!

Very common

I think after all that rain most of the courses are in the process of punching and sanding over the last few weeks. Swan-e-set just did it too.

Golf weather is here.......for you and the Canucks.

Played Redwoods out in Langley today. A great course if you play on a dry day, the course starts off fairly tight but opens up for those players like me that can't hit straight. I struggle with the first nine because I wasn't really sure how to get there but eventually found it and shot a 49 on the front. OUCH is all i have to say about that. Back nine didn't look to be much better with a double on the first and then missed and easy par put, but turned it around with a chip in for birdie, then follow by two other birdies back to back somewhere near the end of the course. I had difficulties hitting off the tee all day long and I am sure i would have played better if I could have.

Overall great course and I would reccomend a cart for those that don't like hills.

Cheers

with a decent 86.:mad:

Are you talking about the holes because i dont think there is an easier course to get to than the Redwoods. 200st exit and go straight 2 miles until you see it???

No Question that it is one of the premier courses in BC and anyone who considers themselves a golfer needs to play there. From the tips it is one of the longest 6500 yds i have ever seen. No surprise that you were higher on the front... it is definately the harder of the nines, the back has four or five birdie holes compared to the two on the front. Over the past winter they have spent a lot of time on the greens to get them up to a 10 on the stimp and smooth so I am fully looking forward to my round there today!

Expensive

All I know is that about 4 years ago, when i last played it, it was a decent rate. Then they got some good publicity in a couple magazines and fees skyrocketed.

What's the green fees now?

Played Golden Eagle South (short course) in a best ball.
Course was in great shape. Drove #10 green and had a 20fter for eagle but blew it............all four of us. TheRob missed it the worst of all but he carried us all day on his backs so we forgave him. :rolleyes:

I didn't think that it was in great shape myself. A little chewed up and I thought the greens sucked. Too fcuking expensive also.:mad:

Yes but

I have seen Golden Eagle in much worse condition so I thought it was in pretty good shape compared to how I have seen it in the past.

What about my driver from 400 on 18 that i knocked 2 feet.....................from the guys teeing off on #1.
:D

FORE!!!!

expensive

I dont know what the actual fee is but for the most part i wont play any course for full fee. Twilight starts pretty early and is reasonable. Probably under 35 dollars. I think its up to 85 or 90 on a weekend full fare though. I dont think there are 10 courses in Canada that i would pay that much money to play.

Possibly

I think there are a few TTP'ers that have played that course recently.

Has anyone played Golden Eagle in the last few weeks? I was going to play it a little while back but all the spots were full for this tournament i wanted to get into there.

i played revelstoke last summer. cut out of the trees along the columbia river. couple holes that play along the river are gorgeous. rest of the course is pretty average. from what i recall though, the green fee was pretty cheap so it is worth what you pay.
if you are going up that way, i would reccomend stopping to play salmon arm and then playing golden. both great courses.
