Best Golf Courses Played in 2015
My plans in 2016 are to head west and represent some great courses in my writing over the year. The past few years have had a notable slant on eastern Canada and I am excited about the possibility of some spring golf in BC and AB. The itinerary is not set yet…I’ll be wrapping my golf around business. But looking back here are my standouts:
This is a worthy public play top 10 Canadian course. Unique, challenging, and very enjoyable. I want to get back there and experience it again. With weather like below this time.
Playing it as single seemed appropriate as I felt I had stepped back in time. The sense of history was pervasive throughout the day.
What a tremendous golfing experience. Add to it the opportunity to briefly speak to Dr. Michael Hurdzan about his bunkering design on this course, while playing, was a treat.
This course simply doesn’t get the respect it deserves. While other Muskoka resort courses get considerable press, this throwback parkland course is stout, picturesque and a natural beauty.
One missed putt and two poor shots resulted in a 78 on a course where I can’t remember breaking 90. My best round of the year and marked me turning a corner to better and more consistent play.
When you see someone walking down 9 with their dog accompanying them, it is a good sign for a relaxed and fun round of golf. The more I reflect on it, the happier the memories. This course has no pretense.
