What's said on the golf course does not stay on the golf course.

Peoria is tucked away between Phoenix and Lake Pleasant and surrounded by rugged cactus and the Sonoran desert's breathtaking mountains. But despite being secluded there is plenty to do when traveling with kids. It was Noah's first time in the desert so of course we took endless smiling selfies with every unsuspecting cactus we encountered.
Coe-Jones is being remembered as a tough competitor and wonderful person.

I had no idea Texas had a wine scene, let alone one as vibrant and interesting as what I discovered inGrapevine, a town of 49,000 that swells annually to about 300,000 when it hosts the largest wine festival in the southwest United States.

I think just about everyone thought that Jordan Spieth (including Jordan himself) was going to win his second Masters and become part of golf history this past weekend. That was until the 12th hole and the longest thirty minutes of a young man's life. As the world watched him struggle on the back nine and make a valiant attempt to recover, some parallels between golf and business struck me.

In March 2013, the Scottish government gave the green light to its most controversial wind project proposal. It wasn't controversial because it was near an environmentally sensitive area so unique that it has been called "Scotland's Amazon," but for its proximity to Trump International Golf Links.
With new spots opening, seemingly, always, sunny, summery SoCal is so worth a visit. We've been waiting with bated breath for the unveiling this month of L'Horizon -- a mid-century modern hotel masterpiece reinvented by storied L.A. designer Steve Hermann.
A sensitivity for the environment was a reason the Chateau Whistler launched a new product this summer, the Clubhouse Dinner and Nature Tour. The idea is for couples and families to learn about the flora, fauna and wildlife occupying the Robert Trent Jones Jr.-designed course that was opened in 1993.

During this weekend's golf at St. Andrews, the venerable Sean McDonough let slip the equivalent of an expletive on ESPN's coverage. "...the British Open -- the Open, pardon me..." The tournament was in Scotland, which, last I checked, remains in Britain.

Two years ago, a great man died at the very impressive age of 97 (and a half). He is remembered and missed for the love, strength and support that he gave his family and friends, for the many great contributions to the Canadian mining industry during his long life, and also for his service in the Royal Canadian Navy during World War II.

There is a chill in the air and the ground is wet from all the rain we've just had. There's no one else on the golf course except for the odd deer I see in the forests that line the fairways of La Tempete Golf Club in Lévis, near Quebec City.

Canada may not have made it into the World Cup since 1986, but we can take solace in the fact that our country is the World Cup’s official grass dealer. No, not that kind of grass, the literal kind. T...

Some golf courses across North America are starting to replace the traditional four-inch holes on putting greens with...15-inch holes. That is, gaping holes the size of pizzas. That is, yawning chasms, colossal craters, a virtual Grand Canyon on every green. Why? Excellent question.

True story. Early one morning as my wife was signing-in at a corporate golf tournament, a charming and magnetic man sidled up to her and, with a playful twinkle in his eyes, he smiled mischievously and told her that he loved her. Turns out, that man was Walter Gretzky. This was just another notch in my long (and partially true) history with the Gretzky family.
When I was a teenager, I golfed. Once. It did not end well. Or start well for that matter. Suffice to say, my game failed to ascend to the dizzy heights of my expectations. Fast forward a century or so, to about 13 years ago when I took up golf once again, and I've discovered something amazing: how to have fun while golfing. Gather around and I'll share my secrets.
This year at The Masters, Tiger Woods was penalized two extra strokes because he and his caddy and apparently one of the judges were wrong about a rule. Each person is responsible for knowing all the...
I'm scheduled to golf tomorrow. First round of the season. Be prepared: you may need an umbrella. Or, if history repeats, you may have to skate to work. Around fallen trees and downed hydro wires. In this, the spring of 2013, it's all just par for the course.
Golf revenues are slowly on the decline across Canada. Some B.C. leaders have missed the simplest way of fixing this problem: getting taxpayers out of the golf game all together. It's one thing for taxes to go to essentials like water, sewer or public safety, it's another thing to know you're subsidizing luxuries like municipal golf courses. If you can find a service listed on YellowPages.ca, government shouldn't be providing it.
Its shameful that anyone would give another human a hard time for crying. It's one of hardest things in the world to do. Forgetting the whole gender role kerfuffle, crying is terrifying. It leaves you completely vulnerable to everyone around you, you lose control of your own body and you get boogers. Crying sucks.
Although all sport is a metaphor for life, it seems golf is the most profound of all. It's the only sport that pits you against the most daunting of opponents... yourself. It's the only game that can never be won.
