Toronto Golf and Travel Show – 2019 Reflections

By Mike Johnny | Misc

Reflections on the 2019 Toronto Golf and Travel Show Winter is leaving southern Ontario anytime soon and between seemingly weekly storms, the Toronto Golf and Travel Show was hosted at the International Centre near Pearson Airport.  The venue remained the same, the space was new and the energy on opening day was fabulous.  I’ve attended […]

By Mike Johnny | Misc

Well, we’ve made it through another winter…almost, but that light at the end of the tunnel is brightening.  Friday will have the calendar turn to March and that’s another month closer to golf season for most of us Canadians.  I really enjoy this annual winter giveaway and want to thank the companies I am loyal […]

This is the fourth of five weeks of this annual giveaway.  Congratulations to Week 3 winner, Ken Mykietowich from Winnipeg, MB who won for his Instagram like and comment.

2019 Winter Giveaway – Week 1

By Mike Johnny | Misc

Hello friends.  Winter has been relatively tame where I live.  Our first storm is expected to bring cold and snow two days from now.  I’ll be celebrating winter’s imminent arrival by leaving shortly thereafter for a 10 day Caribbean beach vacation (no golf, however) and felt it appropriate to kick off the second annual winter […]

My Golfing Goals for 2019

By Mike Johnny | Misc

My Index crept up from 10.6 to 11.8 and while that is not exactly the direction I was hoping it would move, I can safely say I had more fun playing golf in 2018 than I have possibly ever had.  Don’t get me wrong, I still feel I am a scratch golfer stuck in a […]

2018 In Review – Top Post of 2018

By Mike Johnny | Misc Here it is, my most popular post from the past year.  My response to the SCOREGolf Top 100 Course List generated considerable interest.  People have strong opinions on course lists, and specific courses on (or off) these lists. I love them; they generate buzz and conversation about the game.  While I respect the […]

2018 In Review – Courses Played – #2

Granite Hills The factors that converged to allow for this trip – 3 of Manitoba’s best public courses in 2 days, with a good friend from the area – may never align again (though I hope it can).  This was a truly special golf experience.  The course itself, like seemingly many Manitoba courses, […]

Bear Mountain – Valley Course I can’t recall greater anticipation for travel which involved some golf like my winter trip in February to Victoria.  With limited time to play, I would contest I did it about as perfect as one could plan.  Playing Bear Mountain’s newest course on the day I arrived (which […]

2018 In Review – Courses Played – #4

North Granite Ridge While southern Ontario gets teased with some stretches of mild winter weather, in the Muskokas any dreams of golf are snowed under and frozen well into early spring.  North Granite Ridge was a mid-summer play for me and within a region of the country I regrettably don’t have much experience […]
