The Overview

Looking out the window you might think wet weather is coming today. It is. Rain will arrive later this morning, and Monday will be a gong-show of weather. Your walk is still a go today. Layer up – out in the winds is different than sheltered in a forest. You will likely be inside much of today and much of Monday. Thanks fore the reminder Mother Nature!
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).

The Radar Never Lies!

Our opening temperature starts at 1C(FL -C) with some frost and will warm to 10C (FL 8C) in the afternoon and then cool to 8C (FL 5C) overnight. Enjoy the brief bout of warm.
The light breeze will be out of the south this morning, bringing in rain mid-morning. Later they will shift to the East increasing in speed from 20kph. Tomorrow they start swinging around during the day to the West and blowing harder at over 40kph into the evening. This brings in quite the weather fore Monday.

Course Update

We will warm for the next 48 hours then drop back into more recognizable April weather. It will get more intense on Monday – so best to get outside during a weather break today. This is Mother Nature telling us to stay home.

Even without legal restrictions, we might not be golfing today. Our phone continues to ring a few times every day asking if we are open – we are always open first! But first things first – we still 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!

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! With the ponds just about clear of ice, these birds are back and it is wonderful to see!!

The Dogs

Hendrik likes this view. He is loyal and stays around home. He keeps our Cortisol (stress levels) in check and fore this we are grateful. With the ponds now open, he is quite happy to watch any activity on them.
