Golf Out Reach Success Story

By making the effort to take the basic introduction and instruction out to the schools of Burnaby, our efforts have reached more than 30,000 students. Many of these students may never have been exposed to the game of golf if not for our efforts. 

The advantage of Custom Fit Golf Clubs

We can have a love-hate relationship with our golf clubs at the best of times. It is easy to blame a bad shot on them, and it is easy to place all the praise on your new $700 purchase when you hit a good shot. But is this the best way to get the most out of your game?

Getting clubs that are custom fit to you is so much more than just getting the most distance out of your driver (although that is a big perk). It is also making sure that we stay within the "Goldilocks" zones when looking at launch angle and spin rate. (Remember that storybook take with the too cold, too hot, and just right porridge?)

Why is this so important?

Your personal launch monitors

Improve your swing! Both Burnaby Mountain and Riverway are offering ES15 launch monitors on their ranges! You will be able to measure your distance, ball speed, spin rate, smash factor and club speed for each shot. If you wish to analyze your swing's DNA, come check out our innovative new launch stalls! Easy to use with instant feedback - 15 minutes for only $6.00 (tax included). By connecting your smart device to the ES15 through Bluetooth, you will also have access to the free app and can record your session, save and analyze your data. Come and check it out!

Where golf can take you by Rachel Maruno

I’ve taken a lot of golf lessons in my life, but, the first lesson I ever took was a Burnaby Mountain Golf Course.  Growing up and living across the street from the course, much of my time was spent there; playing, practicing, and even working in the pro shop.  I was fortunate to receive support from both the Senior Men’s and Women’s clubs which I’m grateful for as golf has opened many doors for me.

New Golf Rules that might interest you

Rules of Golf

1. Putting with flag stick in - permitted, and recommended! If you can stop the ball 2-3 feet past the hole consistently then it won’t give you any more of an advantage. But if you do hit the ball too hard on occasion, the ball will have a better chance of going in, and if it does not go in, the ball will always stop closer to the hole than if the flag was not in (Only if you hit the flagstick of course).

2. Ball wedged against flag stick and side of hole is now deemed as holed

3. Search time - You can now only search for your golf ball for 3 minutes instead of 5, before deeming the ball lost.

4. Dropping - From knee height now, instead of from shoulder height

5. Double hit - Have you ever chipped it, and accidentally hit it again in the air? Well no need to worry anymore, it will only be counted as the one hit.
