The Overview

Looking out the window you might think this is a beautiful day. And it is – dressed properly. Your walk is still a go. Footwear might change to meet the new demands of the day. Layer up – out in the winds is different than sheltered in a forest. Maybe inside work today is more comfortable – and recommended.
Remain committed to self-isolation with a reasonable edge. We are blessed that there is lots of room in PSM for walking and other physical 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).

Course Update

This winds will chill the idea of being outside because it only looks nice and warm. But we can call it fresh and enjoy the change. It will not last past tomorrow. And not having to ( or being advised to not) drive anywhere will keep us isolated. Is this a plot by Mother Nature?

Even without restrictions, we might not have been golfing today. But wait – we still need to restore our ball inventory. need to restore our ball inventory. And new balls mean a new season. We have our e-commerce portal where you can purchase the 4 4 3 Titleist ProV brand or the Callaway 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!
