The Golf Season is Well Underway!
What a start to the golf season. Opening March 23rd with record breaking temperatures, then mother nature stepped in and gave us snow, cold and hail for part of April. Now May is here, the sun is shining and everyone is back out on the links.

Mother's Day Special
Purchase any Callaway ladies skort or short and you can purchase a Callaway shirt for half price.

Junior Clinics
Starting Monday, May 28th.
The girls class is now full but we still have room in the 9-12 year olds:

CN FutureLinks Clinics for Kids Ages 9-12
The CN Future Links Clinics focus on developing swing fundamentals and ball striking skills to enable participants to play the game. Coaches will work on individual techniques and add content and exercises that are appropriate to the strengths and skill-levels of the participants, so that they can get out on the course. Classes are 55 minutes in length. Space is limited to the first 10 registrations.

Are You Playing the Correct Tees?
No matter what sex or age you are, take a day and TEE IT FORWARD. By supporting the TEE IT FORWARD concept, Golf Canada and the Canadian PGA believe that encouraging golfers to select a course length in line with their abilities can speed up play, improve course playability and increase overall player enjoyment.

"TEE IT FORWARD as a suggested guideline for golfers to play the tees that best match up with their abilities simply makes sense,” said Scott Simmons, Executive Director and CEO, Golf Canada. "Playing the most appropriate yardages goes a long way to improving golfer’s overall enjoyment on the course. We are thrilled to partner with the Canadian PGA by showing our support for this terrific initiative that we feel can have so many positive impacts on our sport.”

The following are TEE IT FORWARD guidelines for selecting tees and recommended yardages based on a golfer’s average driving distance:
Driver Distance Recommended Yardages
275 yards 6,700 - 6,900 yards
250 yards 6,200 - 6,400 yards
225 yards 5,800 - 6,000 yards
200 yards 5,200 - 5,400 yards
175 yards 4,400 - 4,600 yards
150 yards 3,500 - 3,700 yards
125 yards 2,800 - 3,000 yards
100 yards 2,100 - 2,300 yards
