Putting Green Drainage Improvement Project

Underground drainage systems are imperative for golf course playability year round

In B.C.’s Lower Mainland, the most important part of golf course playability is controlling the amount of water in the rootzone of putting greens. For three months, starting in July to September, adding water to the turf is done via an underground irrigation system. For the other nine months of the year, from October to June, removing water is done by an underground drainage pipe system.

Winter Golf Fitness Strategies

Corrective Exercise

A round of golf is rarely routine.  Whether you are fighting your swing, the elements or fatigue, the last thing you want is for the game to become a grind. 

In order to play golf as it’s meant to be played, we need to spend time (preferably in the winter) preparing our bodies. 

There is no better place to start than your walking efficiency. A recent study has shown that golfers who carry their clubs can burn upwards of 1500 calories, and walk more than 3.5 miles during a single round of golf! 

Now, you may be thinking that it’s far from a bad thing expending more energy while golfing.  I disagree. 

If your goal is to score well and improve your game each and every round, all of your energy must be focused on making a proper swing.

Choosing the Right Shaft Flex

Choosing the right shaft flex

You need to understand the effect that shaft flex has on your game. “Flex” refers to the ability of a golf shaft to bend as forces are applied to it during the golf swing.

Those forces are generated by the type of swing that you have – fast or slow, smooth or jerky. There are five generally used ratings for shaft flex: Extra Stiff, Stiff, Regular, Senior and Ladies.

Having a flex that doesn't match the needs of your swing will result in the clubface becoming misaligned during impact, causing your shots to go off-target.

Biometric Screening


When it doubt, Screen it                 

In this issue we will discuss the importance of screening your body prior to challenging your physical limits with exercise. So what exactly is a biomechanical screen?

Dry Playing Conditions Year-Round at Golf Burnaby


Underground drainage systems and surface aeration are key for golf courses. The main concern for the majority of golf courses in the Lower Mainland is the control of water. For about 3 months from July to September, adding water to the turf through an underground irrigation system is critical during dry summer conditions. For the rest of the 9 months of the year, from October to June, the removal of water is even more important to maintain optimal playing conditions.
