^Some of it is through foolishness more than plain bad luck.

 

Like his crazy Navy Seal obsession

 

I fear Tiger's later years will more resemble Mickey Mantle than Palmer or Niklaus.


“I mean I just don’t understand the big Texas part, like maybe he’s from Texas? I want to know the back story.”

Organizers plan for DC Bank Victoria Open in June; worries about golf event’s future

 

One thing does not necessarily lead to the other.

 

The 2021 Mackenzie Tour PGA Tour Canada — which includes the DC Bank Victoria Open presented by the Times Colonist from June 3 to 6 at Uplands — is still on beam for a season despite the cancellation of the RBC Canadian Open.

But Dagg said he is more concerned about future years than this year and it has nothing to do with the pandemic.

 

“We are secure for this year, but we need a title co-sponsor [along with DC Bank] to make it whole for the years to come,” said Dagg, one of four co-founders of the event nearly four decades ago, and the leading member of the board of directors.

 

It could end after this year, Dagg added bluntly: “Do we want this event or don’t we? It’s been an amazing run and it would be a shame to lose this. It’s been voted the No. 1 stop on the Canadian Tour and has raised $550,000 for charity over the past five years.”

Pauquachin First Nation firm to buy Glen Meadows golf course

 

 

A Pauquachin First Nation company is buying the Glen Meadows Golf & Country Club on McTavish Road, the lawyer for the family marketing the 132-acre property said Friday.

 

The B.C. Supreme Court-approved sale means the Saanich Peninsula First Nation will own two golf course properties. It bought the 47-acre Ardmore Golf Course, also in North Saanich, early last year from the DuTemple family.

"Saanich council tonight is recommending increasing fees and dissolving the club that has preferential tee times and free use of the clubhouse at Cedar Golf Course."

As a occasional golfer there, this sounds good to me.

The point about Tennis, Weighlifting and Swimming as a comparison is interesting. I'm not sure if its really an apples to apples comparison or not. Either way, the course needs to be sustainable, and it's already super good value. A minor increase in fees and annual increases of 1.5% does not seem outrageous to me; it's still over 50% cheaper than the closest comparable courses.

 

The contractor should still offer tournament bookings so the golf club can continue their events and allow other groups to book tournaments etc. They would just have to guarantee a number of T-times booked back to back. 100 members per gender seems really low, so I'm not sure there is even enough demand for it; they don't seem to get a ton of value for the $205 initiation/$115 annual fees.

The membership value was combined with the annual pass (which is the bigger change being phased out entirely). I imagine those who got a screaming deal being able to play at ~$25 a round with blocks of tee times reserved for their exclusive use will be more upset.
