Hello everyone!

I'd like to become a full member so thats I can apply to be a tester, so I think making this post will allow me to get closer to that goal.

I'm in Southwestern Ontario, and this is my first seasons GolfNorth Member, hopefully I'll actually get to use my membership this year!

My clubs:


Cobra, King F9 Speedback Black/Grey, Shaft: Atmos Tour Spec 65

Fairway Woods:

3W TaylorMade R11S


4H Ping, G410


5i-PW Mizuno, JPX Hot Metal, Shaft: Nippon, N.S. Pro Modus3 Tour 120 Flex S

No name



This site is so much more than being a tester, don't let that be your only goal.

I'm from SW Ontario as well, where do you play out of most often? You mentioned Golf North, so assuming one of those clubs (you can send a PM if that's more convenient to you). I think there are a few of us from this area on here.

Hello all

I’ve been a big fan of my golf spy for 3 years now and finally decided to join in on the chat.

About myself,

I live in the Greater Vancouver area of B.C. Canada.

Once a week golfer (as long as I can find child care and the wife is all good 😬)

9.4 handicap.

I play;

1) TaylorMade M4 Driver with Fujikura Ventus 6 S shaft,

2) Srixon Z85 3 wood. Stock S Hazardous Smoke Shaft,

Hello from Niagara Falls, On

I've been kicking around on the site for the last few weeks following the Shot Scope V3 forum. That drew me further into this site and here I am.

I don't play out of a particular club, lots of nice tracks around,so we tend to bounce around. This year I seem to be playing alot out of Legends...good price😁. I usually play upwards of 10 rounds a year which means I'm usually low 90's with gusts into the 80's. Looking to get out more now that my boys have finished all their travel sports and the time is there now for me to play.

Driver: Taylormade M6 stiff stock shaft

3 Wood: Srixon Z F85 stiff Project X hzrdus

Hybrid: Srixon Z F85 stiff Project X hzrdus 19° & 22°

Irons: Srixon Z 545 5-6, 745 7-pw

Wedges: Cleveland RTX 588, 50,54,58

Putter: Taylormade Ardmore 3

My boys have picked up the game now so it's a good excuse to get out and spend some time with them. I like to do well but having a laugh is the most important thing for me

Cheers, Mark

Have some nice courses up here to play. Not too expensive

Looking forward to reading articles and learning from this amazing community. Maybe some testing if chosen down the road.

Hello from Richmond Hill, ON!

  1. I first played golf as a teenager growing up in SW Ontario. I got my handicap down to around 10 when I was about 16 or 17. I only played once or twice a year from my 20s to age 50, but I am now playing regularly again. At the moment, I only break 100 some of the time, but my goal is to shoot in the 80s regularly by the end of 2021.
  2. I love the challenge of choosing the right club and the right shot to get from tee to green in the fewest number of strokes!
  3. Club reviews brought me to MGS. I recently purchased a used Tommy Armour Atomic driver based on the review of the best drivers of 2019. Once winter and/or lockdown are over, I’m excited to try it out on the range and course.
  4. I live north of Toronto and have been playing local courses including Rolling Hills, Bloomington Downs, and Remington Parkview.
  5. The best thing is the number of courses nearby. The worst things are the high green fees and the short golf season (usually April to October at best).
  6. I am a middle-school science teacher.
  7. I acquired the nickname Big Dog a long time ago, and use it online when appropriate.

I’m looking forward to meeting some new people who share my interest in golf and golf equipment through this forum.

Hey All:

New member hailing from Oakville, ON. 

Just started playing June last year, so I'm the classic COVID golfer. I joined a nearby club for this year and I'm trying to get in as many rounds as possible. 

Finished last year at a 43 hcp and I'm down to a 29 currently, having broken 100 for the first time (shooting 90) recently. I'm hitting my irons well, so now it's my tee shots and penalties letting me down.

My current bag is a mishmash of clubs as I upgrade with used deals:

  • Driver  - 2016 M1 430 w/ Kuro Kage TiNi 60 Stiff (still working on hitting this well)
  • 3W - 2016 M1 w/ Kuro Kage TiNi Stiff 
  • 3h - Ping G 19deg w/ Alta 70 stiff (recent addition to have a fairway finder)
  • 4h, 5h - Callaway Strata
  • 6i-PW - Callaway Strata
  • GW, SW, LW - Kirkland Wedges (a recent change from Wilson Harmonized wedges)
  • Putter - Wilson Infinite Bean 34"

Driver: 2016 M1 230

3W: 2016 M1

3H: Ping G 19

4-PW: Callaway Strata

52, 56, 60: Kirkland

Putter: Wilson Infinite Bean
