Shift of Play

Golf Courses are Ready to Spring Ahead

Riverway, Burnaby Mountain & Kensington are open after another round of snow. 

Remember to Spring ahead by moving your clock ahead 1 hour this Sunday, March 12th.

Changes in Operational Hours

Due to excessive snowfall, our four golf courses are temporarily closed. Driving ranges remain open from 12pm (noon) to 6:00pm daily. Last balls sold and dispensed at 5pm daily.

Driving Range Winter Practice Tip

With the lingering winter season, now is a great time to work on contact – the ability to stand over an iron shot and know it’s going to hit the green.  Working on this skill can help to improve your distance and direction and, most importantly, your consistency from shot to shot.

Practicing this skill year-round is one of the perks of living in this part of the world. Unfortunately though, during cold spells like this, off-centre shots can send vibrations up your arms and through your entire body. But let’s take this negative, and turn it into a positive.

Here is one quick and easy tip you can use to practice during this cool season.  Be sure to have a roll of painter’s tape handy – essential for practicing this skill to improve your contact.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year from the staff at Burnaby Golf. The pro shops will be closed at 4:00pm on Saturday, December 31. 

Golf Travels: Hawaii

Are you looking for a unique golf experience? Try the “Guest for a Day” program at the King Kamehameha Golf Club in Central Maui. Along with breathtaking views from almost every point, this golf course offers a fun layout and first-class facilities. We had a great time playing the course and will no doubt take advantage of this incredible opportunity again on our next visit to Maui.

Positivity in Visualizing

Success is only achievable by believing in yourself - and this is especially true in your golf game. Everything in golf has choices. Do you use the 3 wood or a driver?  Should you aim for the right side of the green or the left? Are you thinking about hitting the fairway, or thinking about your last round where you hit it in the lake? The positive thoughts referred to here for the game of golf are often called “visualization.”
