Today’s round of golf was played at the Northlands Golf Course in North Vancouver. Every time I play there, at least 10 times a year, I’m always amazed that this is a public course because of the impeccable fairways, greens, great club house and world class views. This course is built on the side of Mount Seymour and there are spectacular views of the city, which seems to also be the direction the palls want to roll on the greens.. Toward the city… Beware !!
I love the fact that every Fairway is isolated and you can feel alone with nature, often seeing deer and the occasional black bear amble by.. Speaking of bears, if your ball happens to end up in the thick forest that is used as the “rough”, make sure to make a lot of noise when searching for the ball.. Bears don’t like noise and will, 99 times out of 100, look for a way to get away from you. That is if they ” don’t have cubs”. If they do… Hmmmmmm, reach into your bag for another ball. You may just be able to find it at a later date.
I smoked 2 Non-Cohiba Cuban robustos while out today and felt like a millionaire. I lost a few balls which brought me back to earth and I guess that gave the day a kind of balance.
