With the hot sizzling summer having passed, its time to show us your sporting skills.  A simple game where you play against your self and only need to hit the ball true and straight.  

Prizes for most lost balls, Closest and farthest from the pin ladies and men, longest drive ladies, longest drive men, most bizarre hat and lots more.

Garden BBQ afterward:  Chateau von Stefan

Bring your own beverage and chair, but there will be lots of seating at three location to keep our social distances.  Burgers, hot dogs, salads and lots of trimmings.  Some overnight room avalable on a first come first serve basis.

  • If you are a golfer, many of the local courses in Greater Vancouver and on the Island are open

  • Still cannot hit that wee ball straight?  Join us at the Driving Range Night in September

To keep everyone safe, I have provided the latest rules for a proper game of golf under our present safety restrictions.  Although I have submitted them to both the PGA and the LPGA, I have not, as yet, had them rejected outright.  Therefore, they are very much IN EFFECT.  Please follow these rules tongue-in-cheek.
Current (non-rejected) North American Safety Rules for ALL 18 and 9 Hole Golf Courses (excluding Quebec):
  1. Players are to play only one ball at a time  (you may not tee off and play three or four balls on any given hole)
  2. Only one player to be on the tee (no sharing of one ball on any given tee unless one player is right handed and the other is left handed, otherwise each player to play a separate ball)
  3. Only one player to approach the ball at a time (please ensure it IS your ball before you swing and miss the darn thing)
  4. Players further ahead must keep at least one club length back or to the side from the player who is about to swing the club (so as not to get hit by the iron or wood with the back-swing, side-swing, etc.)
  5. Fellow players to step even further back if a player misses the ball repeatedly and may end up tossing their club in any direction deemed necessary to get rid of the offending club (it IS always the  fault of the club if the ball is not hit the way you intended to hit it)
  6. Keep the game moving forward (don't play hole #6 and then walk back to play hole #5)
  7. When approaching the green, not even one golf cart may be parked on that green (new rule, I guess?)
  8. Play like the pros.  Only your caddy and the player furthest from the pin may be on the green at one time, keeping at least that social distance of one putter away from your caddy.
  9. If you two, three, or four putt like the pros, just write down 'Par' for that hole.  It keeps the game moving forward as less putts = a faster game (See Rule #6 above)
  10. If you are not having fun, do your bit for Canada and Stay the F--- at Home.
  11. Handicaps may only be used by blind and one-eyed players.  (Please 'look' around the clubhouse booth for the Braille Score Cards).
  12. As the bars are closed, bring your own beer and don't get caught (a regular PGA & LPGA rule)
  13. No Green Jacket will be awarded to the best player* (Note* unless I am winning the game.) 
  14. If the game is tied after you play the course, no extra holes are to be played.  Go to the parking lot and duke it out the old fashioned way (fist-fight) while keeping your social distance of at least 6 feet  between the tied players. (Player with an arm reach of over 2 metres will likely win the game).
  15. Enjoy the great outdoor sport of golf no matter what your final score is. (broken clubs must be removed from the course and put into your vehicle.  Clubs tossed into water hazards become the property of the golf course owners and may be purchased after regulations permit the opening of the pro-shops)
If you cannot abide by these rules, see Rule #10 above.
