2016 in Pictures – Algonquin Golf Club

In an effort to step up my photo game this year I am pleased to share 10 of my favourite golf images over the past year.  With a healthy layer of snow already in southern Ontario I hope this brings back good memories from your 2016 golf season and stokes the fire of anticipation for 2017!


The Story: Playing one of the Maritimes best courses is always a treat but teeing it up with Assistant Pro, Ryan O’Connell made it even more special.  Ryan traded in his pitching wedge for a camera on the feature hole, the 12th at Algonquin, to get this picture of me addressing the ball.  It was an amazing morning of golf and this picture really represents my bucket list pursuit – great courses, even better people.  Ryan shared so many stories of the rich history of this course and the great community of St. Andrews By The Sea.  I simply can’t wait to get back and experience this course again.  And yes, I hit the green and safely two-putted for par.  The pin set on the left had sucker pin written all over it!

  1. Hey Mike,

    Fantastic photo of a fantastic looking hole. And you didn’t even have to say it, we all know you hit the green here with that stellar set up!


    1. Thanks, Josh
      Thanks for pumping my tires, too! I had a great round and managed to break 80 which made the day even more special.
      Your Hawaii trip looked epic!
      Best to you and Beth,

    1. Thanks Tiff. I’d love another chance to tee it up in 2017. And I’m thinking there’s a chance you may be profiled in this series over the next few days. A timeless photobomb at the Ladies Club was a true highlight! 🙂
      Enjoy summer in Australia.

      1. It was a great day.

        I am only in Australia for three more weeks. I head to Hawaii on the 9th January then off to Bolivia for two months to help with a junior golf clinic there.

        I will be back in Toronto for the Canadian Open again so we will have to tee it up.

        Chat soon.

  2. Aloha Mike,
    I like the photo and the idea. Looking forward to seeing more. (Facing that shot I would be wondering which bunker I’d be playing from.)

    1. Hi Wayne
      Based on where you live, you could share a golf photo each day and not run out of content. Loved your posts from your rounds w Josh and Beth. Wishing you all the best for the holidays!
      Cheers, Mike.

      1. Aloha Mike,
        Thank you. The rounds with Josh and Beth were a lot of fun. Though the thought occurs to me that someone must charge Beth 10 dollars per putt … the girl is real stingy with them.
        Mele Kalikimaka (Merry Christmas).
        A Hui Hou,
