Only if 阿平 doesn't go, I may consider using one day of my vacation.
A foursome tee of 9:33am is booked for Sept.9 @ Hautes Plaines. Guest fee is $56+tx, $16.5 cart fee should you choose. For course info and direction, please check www.clublink.ca. The slope rating is 121 from white, plays like 135. Looking forward to meeting you guys and the game.
Great! Thanks a lot Kevin. Look forward to meeting you. It will be a fun game!
Nice meeting you Kevin and thanks for the tee time booking.
Look forward to playing golf together...
How may strokes do you give for your home course advantage?
HP is not my home course, Kanata G & C C is. My RCga handicap index is 13 right now. No extra stroke, but lunch is on me.
Calvin (not Kevin)
An important meeting has been scheduled on Thursday so I won't able to join you guys this time...sorry for the inconvenience.
Sorry to hear that.
Anybody else who is interested in join us please quickly confirm!
Calvin, sorry for the typo. Replied the message above at about two hours before my flight departure time...
Arrived Toronto at 6:00 pm today. Will play a practice round tomorrow at the South course of Angus Glen Golf and Country Club, followed by two tournament rounds on Sunday and Monday...My target is to break 100; don't be surprised as the course is abnormally difficult. Hole #1 at the south course is claimed to be the most difficult hole of all golf courses in Toronto.
A 13 handicap indicates that you could break 80 often and then but could also hit 90s in a bad day... It would be a great match and hope we all can play our handicap... Thanks for your lunch offer Calvin; usually the winner should buy the lunch if we play with a couple of dollars...
Look forward to seeing RobinZ again... It's pity that enssengolf will be missed...
Xiaoyan, sorry to hear that. Hope we do it in the near future...
Have a great weekend...
I am starting to feel sorry for myself. I am envious of you guys playing together on a really nice golf course. I wish I could play and then leave on a business trip. ENJOY your golfing.
阿平 has confirmed.
So the 4-some game on Thursday @ HP is now set! Thanks Calvin for booking the tee time.
That sounds great. Some housekeeping info:
1. Pull carts ( 2-wheel & 3-wheel) are complimentary in all ClubLink courses. Also provided are environmentally friendly tees;
2. Hautes Plaines does not have full practice range, only chipping / putting green and swing cage. You can, however, hit balls into the valley for real practice should you have some beatten up balls you can spare;
3. Thursday is the day for weekly men's night (from 12 pm on). Most local members will play that event. I suspect the course will be almost wide open in the morning. We maybe able to start early should we choose.
4. If you play this course first time, bring a few extra balls. They may come handy.
Since I will drive my son to schooling in downtown early, I plan to be at the course before 8:30am. You all are welcome to join me at the club restaurant for a quick breakfast. That way, we can also know each other a little bit before the game.
Thanks Calvin for the thoughtful tips!
Will try to be there earlier. Please 阿平 and 天涯 do so as well if possible.
No problem for me. Will try to have breakfast there too; and try to finish the break ealier to practica chip and put. I like practice chip and put. Would be interested in playing an earlier tee time too. I could actually play as early as anybody can.
Robin and 阿平，what is your handicap? My current handicap is 11 (10.3).
Believe or not I don't actually know my handicap and never bother to calculate as I am still very much struggling with my swing fundamentals. On a good day I can shoot mid to high 90's (and even with a "virgin eagle") but could easily go above 100's as I did in my two games over this past weekend.
Based on HCP of other same level players who I've been playing with, 26 is probably not a bad guess.
BTW, I heard 阿平 mentioned the other day his HCP is about 8. But of cause, we need to hear from him.
Anyway whoever happens to be drawed to team up with me on Thursday will be definitely the "lucky" one. I'll truly feel sorry for him ...
