Burnaby Golf Festivals — A Hit!

Hundreds of golfers came out to the recent Golf Festivals held in this spring at the Burnaby Mountain and Riverway golf courses. 

Our CPGA golf professionals were on hand offering golf clinics on various topics, providing custom club fitting and video swing analysis for golfers who want learn more and improve on their game. Representatives from Callaway, Ping and Misumi demonstrated the latest golf equipment. And, representatives from the Bridgestone Golf provided golfers with ball fitting.

It was a great morning to work on your game, learn more about the “technical” aspects, and of course, there were prizes and food — fun for golfers of all ages!

Too Busy to Practice?

Visit our golf course at lunch time and hit a bucket of balls at the driving range. We have a value packed menu items at the Riverway Clubhouse and the Clubhouse at Burnaby Mountain with a variety of options for our corporate clients and green fee players alike. Our staff is mindful of customers with time restrictions so you can either stop in for a quick lunch or pick up a hot dog or pre-made sandwich to take with you to the range.

Bunker Shots

What is the difference between a fairway bunker shot and a green side bunker shot?

Fairway Bunker Shot: When hitting out of a fairway bunker, remember to keep your lower body quiet, keep your feet still, grip down on the club, and make sure that the ball is moved back in your stance. When striking the ball you want to hit the ball first and then the sand. Try to remember to do your best to pick it clean out of the sand!

Greenside Bunker Shot: When hitting out of a green side bunker remember to open your club face and stance. Adjust your ball position so that the ball is forward or off of your lead foot. Remember to adjust your posture so that you are sitting down on the ball versus standing tall. If you stand too tall you will thin your green side bunker shot. When striking the ball remember to hit the sand first and try to make a splash.
