Why You Could Be Losing Up To 30 Yards

The saying, “it’s not the machine, it’s the operator” is one that we all hear from time to time when we are blaming our clubs for our bad shot. While this may be true on some occasions, it could also mean that you're using the wrong clubs for your swing. With the development of launch monitor technology, we can now see how a club can influence your ball within seconds. 

What Club Fitters Look For

Once we have determined your swing speed, there are two numbers that we look at the most when fitting: Launch Angle and Spin Rate.

Kensington Golf Course Update

The City of Burnaby continually evaluates its capital assets and infrastructure which includes its roads, sewers, buildings, recreational facilities, green spaces and waterways. Whenever an asset reaches the end of its projected life cycle, it requires a plan to either supplant or apply improvements and modifications to extend its life cycle and functionality in order to maintain demand for its projected future use. In evaluating the functionality and demand for pitch and putt courses within the local area, the whole golf market has been really suffering and has seen a steady decline for demand over the past 10-20 years - especially in the pitch & putt category; Kensington included.

Elephant Jungle Sanctuary


Staff member Vinnie takes a trip to Chiang Mai, Thailand.  

All of the elephants housed at the Sanctuary were rescued from circuses, tourist rides and displacement from deforestation. The sanctuary is run by the Karen tribe, who live on-site to care for the elephants. The areas in which they live are typically natural elephant habitats.

The Elephant Jungle Sanctuary and people of the Karen hill-tribes have something of a symbiotic relationship, and it is only with their partnership and co-operation that we are able to offer a truly ethical elephant tourism experience, as well as protect the remaining elephant habitats and preserve the elephant population in Thailand.

Elementary School Story

Story by Alex Ludeman and Kate Weir

Each year we have the privilege of visiting local elementary schools as part of Golf Burnaby’s Reach Out Program. Personally, this is the perfect way to start the golf season, as we get to see so many bright smiling faces each day, and meet students who are so excited to learn and play golf. It sets the tone for the rest of the year in regards to how this game should be approached and played -- with joy and the intent to have fun. Let me walk you through our typical day at an elementary school. 

Know Your Yardages to Improve Your Game

If we asked you what your 150-yard club is, would you be able to give us a confident answer? How about if we asked you to perform that shot now on the golf course. Would you still be as confident in that answer?

If you do not know your yardages when you play, you'll face two issues:

  1.  You can hit a perfect shot and come up short or long from your target.
  2.  You can feel unsure of your shot during your swing, which results in poor execution. You need to trust what you are doing to perform at your best.
