The Overview

We had 2 calls for tee times yesterday. We love the optimism. Today is a rain day for sure – starting this morning, sputtering through the day, and then gaining in intensity overnight and into tomorrow morning. Back to clear around noon tomorrow. Let’s hope this does not charge the waterways with too much run-off. The week ahead keeps it cool but not cold. So Spring will slip in the door without big heat.
We have grass on which to walk ourselves, and we will be missing you as you might well have been able to safely wander about responsibly chasing the white ball. We worry about your mental health and we hope you will be able to withstand the pressure of the next couple of weeks (or longer) within your own property. We will being wandering our back yard keeping an eye on things that need attention. We will try to resist the temptation to test out the playing surfaces to ensure they are properly maintained. Neighbours – you will see us doing necessary maintenance. This is grass, not concrete. This needs maintenance and cannot be left for any period of time, or it will be beyond our control.
Remain committed to self-isolation with a reasonable edge. We are blessed that there is lots of room in PSM for walking and other activities. Maintain your mental health. Help others keep theirs. Keep an eye on your neighbour – especially if they are elderly (remember – there are more Canadians over 65 than under 16).

The Radar Never Lies!

Our opening temperature starts at -0C(FL -2C) and will warm to +8C (FL +6C) in the afternoon and then chill to +4C (FL -1C) overnight. A wet one on the way.
The UV index is LOW as this wet system moves in.
The ill East winds prevail today with speed picking up into the 20kph range later in the day. These winds will bring a rain front through starting this morning and continue off and on through the day. Overnight, a stronger front moves in and will clear through around noon tomorrow. Tomorrow the winds will swing to the South mid-morning. And around the compass we go!

Course Update

With the Covid19 shutdown measures now increasing the need for mental relief, the walks outside are becoming more important. While we will be closed for any business, out course is quite walkable, and our neighbours are taking advantage of their proximity to us. We have our e-commerce portal where you can purchase the 4 4 3 Titleist ProV brand of golf balls as a Spring Special. Golf ebooks will be on our site by week’s end. If you can’t actually golf, you can read about golf. And if you want to mentally play the course, you are welcome to pre-pay some rounds and dream that you are using them every day!

Are you of age less than 40? Ask about our graduated member programs. $10 per year under 26, $20 x age til you are 40. We know you need to keep some cash for living – so we have made this as affordable as possible. Call us – we will confirm this.

Think outside the normal golf tournament box. We have great options involving FootGolf and LawnBowling that can involve the non-golfer in your event! Call us – we some unique concepts.

Course Wildlife - not the ones on the carts!

Golf courses are a nature preserve where we get all sorts of animals cruising about. You never know what you will see – keep the camera ready!

The Dogs

Hendrik is quite content to be around us more than ever in this isolating time. He is loyal and stays around home. We do go fore walks on the course – and he thought he would try the pond….did not go so well…..
