Happy New Year!
With windchill values around -20c it is a perfect time to write about golf (ok, it’s always a perfect time to write about golf). I want to extend my thanks to the people who have supported this blog over its first year. It has been an exciting and enjoyable experience and I look forward to sharing more reviews, opinion and insight on golf in Canada. I have also been able to connect with other golf bloggers and golf journalists in Canada and abroad and that has been a real treat.
I want to share with you my top five posts (based on popularity) from the past year. It is interesting to see how smaller communities engage around their local courses. The feedback I was able to get from members, staff and other readers reflect pride in their course and that makes sense. These are four very different courses but are all important assets in their communities, almost centrally so. I’d be proud to be a member at any four of these. The fifth post was an introductory message about this blog. It captures the essence of the blog well, I feel, and I am glad so many visited to learn more about my passion for golf in Canada. Here’s the list!
#5 – It’s a Blog – https://36aday.ca/about/
#4 – Cabot Links – This is my favourite course in Canada. For now, anyway, until Cabot Cliffs is completed and I can make my way back to Inverness, N.S. But for now, my favourite par 4 ever stands as hole 16 at Cabot Links.
#3 – The Lakes – In picturesque Ben Eoin, N.S. You may recognize the 6th hole as my cover page for my blog. It’s one of my favourite golf holes and the view, well, the picture says it all. Having hosted a PGA Tour Canada event, this course is outstanding.
#2 – Waskesiu – in Prince Albert National Park, Saskatchewan, this course is a traditional parkland-style layout. As a fan of Stanley Thompson designed courses, I loved this course and my experience at Waskesiu.
#1 – Osprey Shores – A quaint and very picturesque 9-hole course set on Chedabucto Bay in Guysborough, N.S. the only thing better than the relaxed golf experience are its people. Playing there has always been a treat, it’s just fun.
