Glen Cairn

Holiday Monday golf at Glencairn Golf Club. near Halton Hills. This is hole no. 1, sketched while we waiting to tee off. Love this course... from the stone walls, burns and bridges to the " I hate" those sod-walled pot bunkers. On hole number 2, I missed the green by inches and ended up in the pot bunker right in front, three strokes and I was still in trap, a drop in the sandtrap, next shot right over the green. Managed to stay out of bunkers after that. So 17 good holes and 1 bad.

Kings Riding

Kings Riding Hole No. 10

Sunday golf at Kings Riding Golf Club just north of Toronto near King City. Architect Thomas McBroom's inspiration is based the King's Course at Gleneagles in Scotland. I loved  this very walk-able course with a mixture of mature parkland and features of the classic Scottish courses.  This was butterfly that landed on my shoe lace and would not fly away, in fact stayed on my shoe lace while I walked about 100 yards. Must have been good luck, as I birdied back to back par fives, the one we were playing number 9 and hole number 10. This is a sketch of no 10, completed while we waited to tee off on front nine.
