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 […]

Impressions of the 2018 Toronto Golf Show

By Mike Johnny | Misc

It has become an annual tradition and an important step closer to the start of the golf season in southern Ontario.  Having attended this show for almost 10 years now I have seen some significant changes over the years; mostly good.  This years’ show was a favourite of mine and I feel the organizers are […]

Underrated Provinces for Golf in Canada

By Mike Johnny | Misc

Underrated and underappreciated golf in Canada. The simple fact is there is not a Cabot Cliffs or a Banff Springs in every province in Canada.  With respect to the quantity and quality of golf options, provinces across Canada are simply not the same.  The PGA of Canada and Golf Canada co-authored a report, Golf Facilities […]

2018 Winter Giveaway – Week 1

By Mike Johnny | Misc

My attitude toward Canadian winter has been sour and bitter for many years and as an avid golfer this forced break has not been well received by me.  But this year, I am resolving to change my attitude and embrace the winter season.  The test to this, of course, has been an extended stretch of […]

2017 in Pictures – Tower Ranch

By Mike Johnny | Misc

The Story – It took me a few years to truly take advantage of annual business travel.  Tack on an extra day and often it affords me a chance to play 36 in a location I can’t easily get to.  My plans to venture to Kelowna before a work conference was a highlight of the […]
