driving the green
Golfers watching the Sentry of Champions this weekend were treated to a driving clinic by Dustin Johnson when he folded time and space with his incredibly long drives. Dustin drove the green several times and gave himself a chance for eagle. Thanks to Dustin, golfers everywhere is going to attempt to drive the green whenever there is a green downhill from the tee box. Play responsibly and yell out 'fore' if your ball is going to roll on an occupied green.
want a quick round of golf?
Golfers looking for a quick round of golf should play executive courses like the Palm Royale CC in La Quinta, CA. It is a full 18 hole course but every hole is a par 3. Golfers enjoy playing there because it is a complete walking course which means no power carts whatsoever. The course is no pushover because there are plenty of water hazards and undulating greens.

Golfers had to wait for a black bear to clear the fairways before teeing off. When you play golf courses around the world, be sure to ask the locals for the wildlife that may frequent the course. Here at the Whistler Golf Club, bears often roam the golf courses. Both grizzly and black bear varieties have been seen on the course. (Thanks to Dan Hamilton for his photo)
do you have a nemesis hole?
Every golfer has a nemesis hole where it seems the golf gods seem to play havoc on the swing or the ball. Do you have a nemesis hole? I do at almost every golf course I play at. There always seem to be a hole that does not lie well with you. It may be a hazard off the tee or a watery grave by the golf green. Whatever it is, swings go haywire, balls get lost and you storm off with a snowman (or an 8).
fantasy golf is now just a dream
If you've been enjoying the Ladies Dream Fantasy Golf for the LPGA Tour, you will miss it in 2018 because the founder and operator of the Ladies Dream site is going to take a rest. Due to work commitments, the Fantasy Golf will not be operating for the LPGA 2018 season.
when drinking is not allowed
The quickest way to get ejected from a golf course is to bring your own cooler filled with alcoholic beverages. The reason golf courses object to golfers bringing their own drinks is because of their legal obligation. According to the Strathmore Golf Club, they said "their liquor licence does not allow consumption of alcohol not purchased directly from the club and that they cannot check each individual cooler for outside alcohol". There you have it folks. Most golf courses including Strathmore Golf Club provides coolers on their carts for you to keep purchased drinks on ice for anytime drinking while golfing.
putt or chip?
Most of us do not have the magic that Phil Mickelson possesses around the green. Phil would take his wedge out and hit a miraculous shot. With some of us, we would scald the ball across the green or blast it over the green. If you can't chip, check out a new club that may save your game. Click here to read more.
