How I spent my Easter vacation…………….GOLFING!

I am smugly putting up this post knowing that my readers in Alberta will be waking up to the aftermath of a snow storm.I know it is kind of evil to write about golf when Alberta is into its seventh snow-covered month (oh well!) but the fact of the matter is over Easter weekend we went golfing at the Pender Island Golf & Country Club.

We had a fabulous time. The weather was sunny and +16 Celsius. The cherry trees were in full bloom, making the course incredibly picturesque, and we had the added ambience of the occasional rooster crowing.

We golfed uphill and down hill which kept the afternoon very interesting. We met some very friendly people. My boys lost A LOT of balls.

Golfing at the Pender Island Golf & Country Club had a lovely laid back feel, was super enjoyable, and we can’t wait to golf the course again next time we are on the island.

Just a little note to Albertans, the Pender Island Golf & Country Club provides year round golf. It makes a great weekend get-away as it is a one and a half hour flight Calgary, AB to Victoria, BC and then a 40 minute ferry ride to Pender Island. The golf course is less than 5 minutes from the ferry. I think it is just fabulous that we can winter golf in CANADA…..who would have thought.

      Judy,

      You would love the island and the golf. I think Mark and I worked out if you line it up right with the ferries it is under 6.5 hours Red Deer to Pender if you fly.
