MyGolfSpy Vancouver, BC trip JUNE 2013


Recommended Posts

Just finished my taxes. Looks like Uncle Sam is gonna pay for a trip to Vancouver. Gotta pry the money from my wife's fingers, but it's looking good. Will know for sure in a couple weeks.

 

And FYI - I claim to hit my driver about 150. Anything more will deserve large applause and gasps of amazement from my gallery. Hope to see you there !

OK my suggested list of courses and potential days.

 

Monday: Furry Creek

http://www.golfbc.com/courses/furry_creek

Now I know whenever I suggest this one to someone locally they roll their eyes. But this selection is not as much about playability as it is at showcasing the west coast views.

Tuesday: Redwoods

https://www.redwoods-golf.com/

Playable, challenging and great views

Wednesday: Cove Links

http://covelinks.com/

Light day. Short course, still challenging and $12/nine play it a few times and do a good dinner that night at The Flying Pig downtown. http://theflyingpigvan.com/

Thursday: Fraserview GC

vancouver.ca/parks-recreation-culture/fraserview-golf-course.aspx

This is the course I grew up on. In the city, tree lined and across the street from my condo :P

Friday: Riverway GC

http://www.burnaby.ca/Things-To-Do/page162.aspx

This is where Nidine and I call home. Pretty sure Tuna loves it too. Links style course with an amazing patio for me to accept the Distinguished Gentleman's award on afterwards. :)

High Fade the preliminary plan is to fly into Seattle late Saturday night. Zach and I from Texas and Richard from the Burgh. The flights arrive there late like 10 pm. So we basically gather and rent a SUV and the find a hotel.

Sunday morning, we set out and take a good look at civilization (Seattle) and then a leisurely drive out to the boonies where we will cross the border and go to a rented place in the accommodations thread.

We will then meet up with our native guides. (Are they bare breasted natives there? Well, we will have an extra shirt for Dan if we need it.)

We will let you know for sure next week but that is the plans as of now.

Oh yeah. Return is back to Seattle Saturday morning and fly back Saturday night or evening.

Nice course choices. Not played Furry Creek. Peace Portal would be a good one also.

Ooh, just noticed Cove Links. Small challenging course but a good one for visitors? Country Meadows way better and the food is good. If time is tight 9 holes at Crescent Beach Nico Wynd. So many choices. Redwoods is a surprisingly challenging course. For me. Mayfair Lakes in Richmond, Morgan Creek must be the jewel. I lost 16 balls in water there.

What time Sunday do you get in? It is just 2 hours and we can see Seattle as we drive through. Probably will not be too difficult to talk this crew into golf on Sunday afternoon.

Depending on the timing, I can probably swing Sunday as well.

 

The Mrs is coming back from a Guiding event that night and then disappears for the week to see her family (and let me golf as I wish heh) so I will be somewhat limited in how late I can play. I will swing by even if it's just to say hi and walk a hole or three if the timing for the whole round doesn't work.

 

Plus, I really need to see what Wookie golf looks like. I may even have to make one of the In the Wild video's... :P

If all goes well I can get into Vancouver around 11:00 AM Sunday - so some early afternoon golf is a possibility...

 

And wookie golf is just like regular golf, just with more hair....

Sorry, folks. I just rented my house out. Move in day is June 1. Normally not a big deal, but now I have to get my kids out of there so my rent-paying tenants can move in.

 

Next year.....

So I'm currently kicking the tires with the idea of a day trip to Vancouver island - 45 minutes ferry and maybe a round at Victoria Golf Club

Main issue is ferries aren't cheap and we'd want to be on the road early cause this will be a solid day trip. Don't want to burn out everyone for rest of week.
