Rules Of The Game Made Easy

If you didn't already know, the point of the game is to hit/play the ball with your clubs and try to get the golf ball into the hole with as few strokes (aka shots) as possible. This is done without influencing the ball (or course) in any way outside the general rules of the game (2 stroke penalty if you do).

We have looked over the official golf rules and regulations and are going to summarize them as best possible so that you don't have to waste time reading all the obscure and not as important ones. Hopefully these simple rules of golf will make it easy for you.

That being said, all the rules for playing golf are important, and if you want to truly honour the game, you will learn them all with time.

We have also added an interpretation of the rules, or the easy way for beginners to handle the rules so as to speed the game along, and keep it fun while still learning the do's and don'ts of the game.

Virtual Reality Indoor Golf in Alberta 2019 (Edmonton, Calgary, & Red Deer)

Looks like the 2015 outdoor golf season is done for the year, but that doesn’t mean you have to sit on your couch and cry. Well, you can, and I would totally understand, but after you are done that, keep reading!

There are a lot of virtual golf or indoor golf facilities here in Alberta. These places are located all over your city and are actually open all year long. They are a great way to get some practice in over the cold winter months.

If you haven’t tried virtual golfing before, you really should. It is a totally different experience than outdoor golfing, and is very enjoyable. I will write a post in the future about why I like it so much. Maybe you tried virtual golf a long time ago, but things have changed in the last few years. The graphics are better, the rooms are comfier, and the machines are much more accurate. Some of them cameras can even pick up the spin on your ball!

I’ll do my best to give you a list of all the places you can play, but keep in mind, that things are always changing, and it is best to call beforehand to make sure they are still operating. Check out the full list HERE!

Pro Golfer, Jordan Spieth’s New Dream Home

Jordan Spieth had an amazing year last year golfing with a few tournament wins and few new records. So what is a guy to do after he wins all that money? Buy a new house of course. And not just any house, but a house that was originally listed at $9.5 million! Apparently, Spieth is almost as good at negotiating as he is on the course, since he bought the house for just over $7 million (after the seller dropped the price to $8.5M).

There are a lot of amazing features of this house including a basketball court, 12 car garage, pedal facets in the kitchen, and so much more. I will let the pictures do all the talking. The house is breathtaking and I am happy for him because he deserves it.
