Technically this postcard is coming from Mississauga, Ontario but the day began in Stanley Bridge, PEI. The trip is complete and our group are all back home safely. I have to commend Golf PEI and PEI’s Finest Golf. These two offices are important in supporting golf tourism on the Island. My reflections of golf on the Island – and I will spend more time on this in subsequent posts – are of diversity, quality and enjoyment. The enjoyment comes from the land and its people. PEI is blessed with great golf with a nice mix of value and quality.
To my friends who made the time to make this so memorable, thanks. Our friendship and golf compatibility made for a great week. We spent time sharing our favourite courses this morning. Safe to say that golf course listings are subjective.
Highlights? No aces. I did hit a pin on the approach on the 179th hole on the trip. Andrew was able to hit a drive over 350 yards at Crowbush. Greg hardly missed a fairway all trip, seriously, the man is automatic off the tee. Joel played some superb golf after a challenging summer and continues to demonstrate a sensational short game. Me? I worked on my new claw putting grip and while I didn’t score well, I was awe struck daily about the natural beauty of golf on the Island. My spirit has been refreshed and renewed.
The success of a golf trip starts with the people; it is the foundation. After that, it is like real estate…location, location, location. I feel fortunate. On both accounts the trip was amazing. Here are a few final pictures. It will be a busy fall and winter season with course reviews, gear reviews, and reflection pieces. I will not apologize though. With a bias to golf in eastern Canada, Prince Edward Island is a location I admire and enjoy.
