I’m a workaholic when it comes to real estate.
Yes, Bally Haly Country Club
Al Felix, Glen Goss ad Howie Hansford. Honorable mention to Tony Evans. This group has been together for over 40 years.
My favourite course is Twin Rivers with Humber Valley and Cabot as close seconds.
The Old Course at St. Andrews, just so much history.
Bally Haly in 1969. Just a note – Junior Membership was $17.00.
It was back in the 1980’s. It was an assistant pro-am with Jim Stick. It was the first time I broke 80 (78) to win the amateur division. Also have to mention 2023 in Australia when my son Steven had his 1st hole-in-one on a Par 4, 280 yards uphill.
A group of us were in Moncton for a tournament and not one of us was introduced correctly on the first tee. I was Ken “Caskey” and Glen Goss was Glen “Goose”. We still laugh at it today.
It came along in 2021 when I was surprised and humbled to accept Golf Canada Volunteer of Year.
It’s the scorecard when I first broke par at Bally Haly.
I’m always complimenting my playing partners but I am very hard on myself.
Lee Trevino, Seve Ballesteros and Bobby Jones
It would be a group from my years in Corner Brook. John Moore, Pete Bugden and Paul Harnett (who is no longer with us). That would be a night to remember.
