I just learned about the rise 3 weeks ago from a good buddy that went out and played. It destroyed him, mind you he had a tee time at 630am so I'm driving from Penticton didn't help that case. It looks stunning and definitely a bucket list course for the region now that I'm aware of it. How did you find it?

One of my all time favorites. Only 1 or 2 forgettable holes. It was better prior to their changes, but still good. 11 was a long tough par 3, now it is a stupid short par 4. 18 was an awesome blind shot par 5, now a par 3. 2 was a good change. It was a near impossible par 4 up a hill. A real connector hole. Now it's a manageable par 5.

Definitely a challenge, but makes you play a variety of shots and truly rewards finding fairways.

Also I've only played it twice, but has had a lot of great memories on it.

We have a few golf trips planned next year already and I'm going to add this to the list. Going to hit Hyde mountain and Salmon arm g&cc then I think we can hit the rise on the way back. Last course I played in Vernon was either Predator in 2011? Or maybe spalumcheen around the same time. My sister used to live in Coldstream so we'd be up there often but that was about when she moved to Barrie.

Predator is great. Pricey, but great. Kinda nice they have the 2 courses now. Spal is fine. 

Definitely better courses in your area, Kamloops and such. 

Hopefully in a couple years when I get back there we can get together for a round or two. My sister and her family live in Peachland, parents still in Vernon basically beside The Rise.

Ya I passed on a round at Predator this September, on sale the round was still $120 after they punched the greens. Tobiano is definitely somewhere I want to play. I have family in the Kamloops area so it should be a no brainer. The biggest drawback is the damn bridge in Kelowna. It is such a pain. I would be down to get together for a round, absolutely!

On a map central Canada looks like about the northwestern edge of Hudson Bay.  😄  Chilly up there?  🥶

So cold. Between wind and how dry it is definitely a interesting cold compared to the east coast. However some areas see -40c or colder.

East coast is more in the -15-20 c range but is wet and just as windy.

Hi all, new member here from Derbyshire in the UK. 

Currently playing around once a week through the winter and practicing my putting at home (Puttout mat and pressure trainer)

If anyone has any good puttout drills then I’d be interested to hear please. 
 

Thanks

1. I’ve been playing on and off since the age of 7. Started taking my first golf lessons at 8 but slowly transitioned to other sports after some minor success as a junior competitor. Picked up the game again at around 25. And love it more for every season. Great to feel my best golf is still ahead of me! 
Current Hcp 5.4 - but goal is to always shoot under 80, season average 80.6 season best 73 
 

2. it is just such a privilege to play! Love the history of the sport and the never ending challenges!!

3. No, not really. Been reading a lot and been following the site an socials for a couple of years now. Love the equipment reviews. I’m quite the equipment junkie. 
 

4. from the south of Sweden, playing at PGA Sweden national and Landskrona GK 

5. Best thing, probably considerably mild climate and many good courses in the area. Bad, short seasons. 

6. Product & UX Designer 

7. Just an old nickname

 

Played Old Course April this year! 150th and all. 
 

 

Looking forward to nerd-out with some golf fanatics 😊 

Love the game!

Hi all new guy here. My name is Ant, I live on the Kent coast of England. Started playing golf again after a 6 year lay off in 2022, got down to 8 and hoping to get a lot lower in 2023.

Current bag

Titleist 620MB/CB with Nippon Modus 125S

Hybrid - Ping G425 4 lofted all the way down with Tour AD DI 75 Stiff

Fairway - Ping G425 max 5w Mitsubishi blue 70 stiff

Driver - Ping G25!!!!! Stock stiff TFC something or other, I'm going to get fitted this year for a driver although this is working well.

Putter is a bit more of a work in progress, I putted most of last year with an Odyssey DFX 1 with a big grip on it and changed to a Odyssey #7 for a little while with a skinny grip. I can pretty much putt with anything once I make some changes to setup to deal with the perceptual bias. I've just got a big putting mat at home so intend to grind away and get some consistency at that end of the bag.

I'm a member at Littlestone and play as much as I can

Hi everyone. 

New member here. I've been a browser of MyGolfSpy for far too long without joining.

I'm Sean from Perth, Western Australia. I've been playing around 5 or 6 years and I currently play off a 20 handicap (unofficial, just what Garmin Golf tells me).

The best thing about golfing in WA is that courses rarely close, I've only ever been turned away once when we had a torrential downpour. 

I'm a member of a social golf club run through on of the local pubs. We play on the first Sunday of the month and it's a great mix of characters and handicaps. My biggest achievement in golf so far is winning our club championship in 2021, my bro-in-law won it last year and it's my goal to win it again this year.

Welcome to the forum!

Perth is on my list of places to get to. Been to Cairns once, but much like in Canada I don't think many realize just how big Australia is!

What are the courses like on that end? Have good variety of different courses?

Nice setup! That is a lot of putter covers!

Thanks for posting the photos and welcome to the forum. When you do get the new Stealth kit be sure to let us know how they perform and where you think they made some advances. 

Also did you setup all your clubs just for posting? Or did you already have these done and saved? ... bonus points if you did all that setup work just for us! haha

Yeah, she's a big country 😅 Perth to Cairns is around a 4-hour flight.

Courses over here are great, definitely a lot of variety if you want to look for it. In the metro area, you have public courses ranging from average quality but cheap, to pristine public courses that can get quite costly. Either way, you get what you pay for and it's always fun. Out of the city, you have the outback courses with sand greens.

I played an outback course one time in a town of around 100 people. The course was unmanned and I couldn’t find an honesty box to put some money in. Eventually, I found a phone number to call for an off-site supervisor. When I got through I explained the situation and she just laughed at me, she said ‘you must be from the city. We don’t pay for golf around here, just have fun and watch out for snakes’.

I don't know about a full sand course, that sounds far too hard, ha ha, but there are plenty of courses with sand greens, they're just generally not in the metro/city area. Sand greens are usually in the smaller country/bush courses. Thankfully this means I don't have to play on them a lot, only when I'm travelling.
