We will also become part of the BC Golf Zone 5 Interclub rotation and begin other initiatives such as HP Players Club Member run events. The pricing structure of the HP Players Club will be released this fall and introduced in early in 2019.

This initiative will require some volunteer involvement and the formation of the Highland Pacific Advisory Group. Positions that need to be filled are as follows:

  • Handicap Chair (Handicap Monitoring)
  • Tournament and Social Convener (to work with Men's and Ladies Captain)

Highland Pacific Golf Academy- Pro Tip
2 Tips for a Better Set-Up: By Warren Reeves, Head Pro
Bend at the Hips  - At times, we tend to bend at the knees rather than tilt our body from the hips. Bending at the knees ruins proper posture, and saps the swing of power. Bending at the hips creates an athletic stance that pushes your rear and shoulder blades back, creating room for the swing and enhancing balance. Bending at the knees tends to force the club into more of an up-and-down action rather than a circular motion around the body.

A similar error is to bend at the waist rather than the hip joints. Bending at the waist promotes an overly-rounded and bent over back angle, creating a weak foundation that makes it difficult to build a repeating swing.

Correct Grip  - A good golf swing is built around a correct grip. Since it is the only contact you have with the club, if the grip is unsound, the swing will begin incorrectly and proceed to get worse as it develops. A correct grip starts with standing with your hands and arms hanging loosely and naturally. Without changing the angle or position of your hands, place the golf club in your left hand, making sure the club face is square to your target line. The club will run in a diagonal line across the fingers, and the butt will end up on the bottom portion of your heel pad.

A common error is to hold the club in the palm of the hand. In reality, a golf club lies in the fingers. Looking down, you should be able to see the knuckles of your left middle and index fingers. If you see four knuckles, your hand is turned too far to the right, and if you only see one knuckle, it is turned too far to the left. Take your right hand, and wrap it around the club, placing the pad over your left thumb. You’ll notice two Vs in between your index finger and thumb on each hand. They should point slightly inside your right shoulder.
Course Improvements
By Geoff Sheffield
At Highland Pacific Golf, course improvements are always a priority and keep our crew busy for most of the summer. They can range from raising and leveling sprinkler heads in order to improve our irrigation efficiency to removing invasive plants in the naturalized areas. These changes benefit our golfers, especially the latter for when you hit that errant shot, you are not fighting against the strong Canadian thistle.

One of the course improvements that is negatively perceived by many golfers is the cultural practice of top dressing our greens. Top dressing is the practice of lightly covering the greens with sand. Just the mention of top dressing scares some people away from the course for that day. It can be a great day to golf, though, if our top dressing practice goes smoothly and we get it brushed in well. This can be a challenge first thing in the morning, however, after a night of watering or from dew that makes the sand clump. We often blow the first few greens to get the sand off the surface that will not go into the canopy of the plant. After the sun comes up and helps dry the sand it goes into the canopy a lot easier.

We top dress the greens for several reasons as follows:
1-       To help smooth the surface of the green for better putting
2-       To help control thatch build up through dilution
3-       To firm the surface
4-       To protect the crown of the plant
5-       To improve the health of the root system of the plant

We strive to make the putting surface the best we can with the resources and man power that we have. So next time you see us top dressing look at it as a benefit to your game for without it the greens would suffer.

Enjoy the rest of the summer. Our crew looks forward to seeing you out there.

Thank you
Geoff Sheffield and Crew
