Giving Golf in Manitoba its Due

By Mike Johnny | Opinion

Giving Golf in Manitoba its Due I have a greater appreciation for the ongoing advocating which @PrairieGolfMagazine does for golf in central Canada now.  I am not going to urge you to cancel your golf trip to Cabot or PEI either.  But golf in Manitoba is misunderstood, underappreciated and surprising in its diversity, value and […]

Weather Considerations for Planning Golf Trips in Canada

By Mike Johnny | Misc

With very little exception (and deep envy to the temperate Vancouver Island climate) the golf season in Canada is limited to spring, summer and fall months.  And for spring and late season players, the perils of play are predominantly weather related.  However, for the value conscious golfer there can be some wonderful opportunities to travel […]

Panic Attacks in Golf

By Mike Johnny | Misc

The issue is a serious one and not a flippant reaction to topping a drive or chunking a chip shot.  And in all my years of golf I recall experiencing two panic attacks on the golf course.  One was last summer and I was fortunate to let my friends and playing partners know I wasn’t […]

Same Address. But A New Home for 36aday.

By Mike Johnny | Misc

After over three years on my old blog platform I felt it was time for a change.  I was seeking a new look but something clean, easy to access and most important, a means to continue to engage with golfers I have met through this blog and on social media over the years.  I am […]

Celebrating a life saved and three heroes

By Mike Johnny | Misc

The last weekend in April is an annual kick off to my golf season.  An executive length golf course in southwestern Ontario offers a great value golf and stay package which our group has taken advantage of for over 15 years.  It’s generally cold, or wet, often both.  On few weekends’ we’ve left sunburned but […]

Book Review – Fearless Golf

By Mike Johnny | Book Review

Book Review – Fearless Golf I enjoyed a playing lesson with my instructor this year and after a few holes, where I had taken a very the conservative approach off the tee he said to me (and I am paraphrasing), “I rather see you hit the driver into the trees on then play too conservatively […]

Victoria Golf Club – Pebble Beach North

By Mike Johnny | Course Reviews

https://www.victoriagolf.com/ I am not the first to pen that Victoria Golf Club is reminiscent of Pebble Beach.  But perhaps it should be the other way around.  Victoria Golf Club opened in 1893, making it one of the oldest golf clubs in the country; the oldest in British Columbia.  This venerable course set on under 100 […]

My Golfing Goals for 2018

By Mike Johnny | Misc

My handicap factor is 10.6  I came off a year with some minor health issues and for most of the season I struggled feeling comfortable – with my game and my new golf schedule. I am inspired by Golf Is Mental who set what I saw to be some very realistic goals and it gave […]

Time to Remove Mashed Potatoes from Golf

By Mike Johnny | Opinion

I’m a huge proponent of the Waste Management Phoenix Open and it’s rowdy 16th hole. Love it, and until recently thought it was great for the game; the Yang to Augusta National’s Ying. But it seems, as is the case in many aspects of life, we can’t have nice things. The facts are, the collective […]
