Travel tips to protect your sticks

Taking time to prepare your bag and clubs for air travel can prevent damaged equipment

Now that the 2010 golf season is officially drawing to a close, players are starting to plan their winter getaways to warm stay and play destinations. A primary concern for many travellers intending to fly is ensuring their clubs arrive unscathed. Here are some handy packing tips.

St. Andrews attracts golf lovers and tourists

This charming location is rich with history and golfing opportunities

The 139th British Open Championship was recently held from July 12 to 18, 2010, in St. Andrews, Scotland—the birthplace of golf. For golfers who have never been there, the images of the pot bunkers, double greens and the history of the course beckon you to make the pilgrimage.

A dream at Pebble Beach

Lisa Longball surprised her husband with a life’s dream—they golfed Pebble Beach and met Arnold Palmer

The 110th US Open was held on June 14 – 20, 2010, at Pebble Beach Golf Links for the sixth time. It is heralded as one of the most spectacular US Open venues. A bucket list course.

I knew I had to play it, some way, somehow. I started squirreling away for the trip and I ended up surprising my husband Anton for a milestone birthday. Pebble Beach Golf Links was a gift like no other.

Keep track of your stats

Being straight with yourself will improve your game

Most golfers record their score on each hole, tally it up after the round and reminisce about the good, the bad and the ugly at the 19th hole with their playing partners. Your scorecard can actually be used as a key tool in better understanding your game and reducing strokes.

A preview of the Masters

This legendary event brings joy to all who participate

As the first major of the year, the Masters not only marks the true beginning of the golf season, but is arguably the most revered and sought after title. This year’s event will be held April 5 to11, 2010, in Augusta, Georgia. The tournament will be highlighted by Tiger Woods’ return to competitive golf since November, 2009, after personal scandal rocked the number one player’s world. It may be the highest rated Masters telecast in history.
