  1. Unfortunately the inevitable happened and we have been forced to cancel our annual golf trip, so I have all these sitting around and won’t be used. ? I was fortunate (or unfortunate at this point) enough to get my hands on these limited edition hats and just trying to recoup some of the costs. Every hat is brand new and not even tried on with tags attached. Hard to gauge some of the pricing as these were “hype” but tried to be fair based on what I saw on EBay. Shipping from Canada 1 x Beige (one size, BNWT) - $60 USD 5 x Green (one size, BNWT) - $50 USD each
  2. What’s the specs on the LAB? Length and lie specifically
  3. Hello looking to move a beautiful set of irons that just didn’t work for me, the ho in me wanted to try modus shafts but they just go too high for me. 4-pw, modus 120 X, 2* upright, +1/2”, ordered straight from mizuno Canada. Used them for 2-3 months (half a season for us in Canada) and looking to sell for $650 shipped from Canada. Would consider trades for similar spec/condition irons with X100 or Ctaper s+.
  4. Just got back from our trip...man! what a place this resort is, best golf resort i've ever been to by far. Was lucky enough to play the Sheep Ranch 9 hole preview and it was amazing....granted the greens are shaggy and nothing like the rest of the courses but the potential is 100% there. What a beautiful place this was, will definitely look to go back at some point! My feet are so tired from playing 36+ everyday but i still thoroughly enjoyed every second of it. We were also absolutely blessed, zero rain and very little wind ~15-18*C so about 59-64 and sunny for all 5 days that we were there. Simply Gorgeous! caddies and staff were saying that we completely lucked out as it's rare for there to be 2-3 days consecutively like that and we had 5.5 days like that, didn't use rain gear at all

If you had to pull the head off an old shaft to re-shaft then 1 hour or more of effort is not unreasonable plus materials/consumables .... grip is extra. > > Your not getting ripped off at $25.00. > > D. > > good to know! thanks!

    where would you guys go in Calgary to get a club reshafted? had an accident with a tree the other day LOL i'd assume golftown is not the first choice?
  9. i'm currently doing 46/52/58 really tempted to try out a "real" wedge for my 46 instead of the one from my 919. Can anyone tell me the pros and cons to this?
  10. > @spud3 said: > 1. Oregon is a controlled liquor state, meaning you won't be able to buy anything stronger than beer/cider/wine at Costco. All hard liquor stores are run by the state liquor control commission, so prices do not vary much between stores. There is a store in Bandon if you want to reduce the time it takes to get out of Portland. There's a liquor store in the Cascade Station shopping mall (also a Golf Galaxy there) on your way out of the PDX area. Stop there first on your way to Costco (which is a couple miles or so farther on Airport Way). > 2. You'll probably need more than 4 hours to drive from PDX to BD, even if you don't hit any traffic. I-205 can get pretty clogged up, even at noon. Plan on 5 hours, then you'll be pleasantly surprised if it's less > 3. That's a lot of golf, especially if you're not used to walking/carrying. Trails and OM are the toughest walks, so are good candidates for caddies. > 4. All the on-site restaurants have their menus posted on the web site. Try 'em all. > 5. Best photo op spots: any ocean hole, especially OM 7 green, BD 17 tee. > Amazing! thank you, yea not sure what i saw previously but checked google maps again and saying 4h 35m...i think 5 is safe like you said, hopefully we can hit some balls before sunset on the first day. We all walk and carry back home so i think (or hope?) we should be good, but if not we may just have to fork up the caddie fee i guess. Thanks for the great info/suggestion on liquor, i will definitely incorporate that into the drive to hit up the liquor store and maybe golf galaxy.

That said, if your flights are 7pm or later, I'd try and sneak another round in on one of the main courses. flight is 3 pm....or else we would! haha
  12. Awesome thread, my buddies and i are heading there in a little less than 2 months (Canadian Thanksgiving). Will be our first time and have read most if not all the threads on here about BD, this is our itinerary and would love any input from the veterans of BD Oct 10 - Arrive into PDX around noon, hit up costco for snacks/liquor and slowly drive into BD (3.5-4 hours according to google maps). If we get there early enough, Range/Punchbowl/ or Shorty's Oct 11 - Old Mac (7:30 am) / Bandon Dunes (1:20 pm) Oct 12 - Bandon Trails (7:30 am) / Pac Dunes (1:10 pm) Oct 13 - Pac Dunes (8:00 am) / Bandon Trails (1:30 pm) Oct 14 - Bandon Dunes (7:30 am) / Old Mac (1:30 pm) Oct 15 - maybe one more go at punchbowl/shorty's and drive back to PDX for evening flight home. I'll be packing 3 pairs of shoes, two sets of rain gear, sunscreen, lipchap, swimsuit for the hot tub, and maybe 12 balls. I think our tee times are more or less locked in, but would love input on where to eat, lookout spots (i.e. where to get the best photos), which caddies to use and for which rounds, what do i not know that i should? etc...Thanks!

    > @ratspros said: > I’ve heard from quite a few people that country hills is entertaining the idea of selling the top nine of the ridge course to a developer making it a 27 hole facility. Early stages but wouldn’t count on it always being 36 holes if I were you. oh man! that's news to me, thanks for sharing. I know they had the mackenzie tour event on the talon 18 so i'm guessing that's their big priority anyways
