Range Cafe Renovations
It is an exciting time for the Range Cafe as we plan to renovate our kitchen. In order to improve our quality and increase our service capacity, we will be installing a new hood fan, deep pit fryers and a char-broiler in our cafe. We are currently awaiting our building permit and hope to begin the renovation late this month or early in May.

The renovations to the Cafe should last approximately two weeks. During this time, the Cafe will operate with a limited menu and our hours of operation may also be limited. We appreciate the patience of all of our patrons during this time. We look forward to being able to serve you better after the upgrades!

If you have any questions regarding the Range Cafe renovation, please reply to this email with  "Cafe Renovation"  in the subject line.
Highland Pacific Golf Academy- Pro Tip
Bunker Magic
The biggest mistake people make in playing a shot out of a green side bunker is that they under estimate how hard they have to swing. Players often leave their ball inside the bunker by swinging too softly and abbreviating their follow through. Golfers also do not maximize the design of the golf club and use the leading edge of the club, instead of the trailing edge of the club. Here are a few tips to help you with the bunker shot:
Set Up:
First, dig your toes and heels into the sand a couple of inches. This will promote hitting behind the golf ball. Position the ball in the middle of the stance, and, with a normal grip, lean the shaft of the club slightly away from the target. The feeling here is that the hands will be slightly behind the ball; this will help add loft to the club, but also promote entering the sand with the trailing edge of the club and use the bounce of the golf club. Your ball will come out more often.
Swing Hard:
We want to enter the sand behind the golf ball and we want to make the sand fly out of the bunker. To do this, we have to swing hard and follow through as if we were hitting a driver. Work on your finish position by slapping the sand with the trailing edge of your wedge and then pivot your body into a full follow through. 

These simple keys will act as a wand with which to create bunker magic!
Highland Pacific Golf Turf Talk
It has been a very decent spring to grow grass and our course conditions are showing it. The course is in superb condition due to the consistent weather. Known as one of Vancouver Island's best draining courses; Highland Pacific Golf is consistently lauded for being a great place to play in the winter. Golfers have really enjoyed this winter/spring season.

Another reason for excitement is that spring is upon us and that means that conditions will get even better. Highland Pacific Golf invested in a brand new Toro Tri-Plex that has the ability to float and oscillate while cutting the greens. This, coupled with the purchase of new aeration heads, will see our greens become healthier. G olfers will see a big improvement in the greens speed and consistency in the smoothness of roll when putting the ball. All of this means better enjoyment for those that play Highland Pacific Golf.

The maintenance team recently aerated the greens on the Pacific and Highland nines with this new technology, and the results have been nothing less than impressive.

Players will also note the new tee complexes on Highland holes #2 and #9. These should be in play towards the end of May, and we thank everyone for their patience as we wait for the grass to grow. It is our hope that these changes will positively affect overall course conditioning.
