Golfers in the Olympics

2017-02-28T21:12:14+00:00By |Categories: Off the Fairway|Tags: , , , |

I guess with the games underway, it’s my duty as a golf blogger to touch on this. For the first time in 112 years, golf was played in the Olympics yesterday. Come the 20th, six medals will be awarded to 3 men and 3 women who will be perpetually etched into the history books. Time [...]

How to Start Juniors Golfing – Quality Time

2017-02-28T21:12:14+00:00By |Categories: Off the Fairway|Tags: , , |

My dad hasn’t beaten me at golf in a long time. Actually, it’s been a while since he’s earnestly tried. It’s probably unfair of me to bring it up. I work at a golf course. He dusts off his clubs maybe twice a year. But since these facts (and disparate win-loss record) doesn’t curb the [...]

Youth on Top: Golf’s best are golf’s youngest

2017-02-28T21:12:14+00:00By |Categories: Uncategorized|

I’m told I have an old soul. I’m in a bowling league. I like a nice aged scotch. I’ve recently taken up orchid care. I tell too many stories. I play golf. It’s gotten to the point where my friends call me “grandpa.” Sure, I’m closer to 30 than not. But I have a hunch [...]

Aeration? Play anyway!

2017-02-28T21:12:14+00:00By |Categories: Off the Fairway, On the Green|Tags: , , , , |

It’s that time of the year again. Spring aeration season. The Hawaii golfer’s biannual hunt for the one course on Oahu with grass instead of sand to putt on. Yet is that hunt really worth it? I’m convinced it’s not. Now before you think “well sure, the golf course employee must say that,” trust me [...]

Go with the flow – A golfer watching the waves

2017-02-28T21:12:14+00:00By |Categories: Off the Fairway|Tags: , , , , |

It starts with your arms. Working together getting you to an ideal position. Shoulders drive, straightening your elbows, putting you in the perfect posture. Then, at the crux, it’s all up to the legs. Balance. Power. Direction. A harmonious balance of control and allowing things to happen. I’m talking, of course, about surfing. Like so [...]

Love and Golf in Ewa Beach

2016-02-12T09:20:56+00:00By |Categories: Off the Fairway|

There’s a trend I notice when romantic couples play golf together. Married. Dating. Whatever. They seem to always leave the course happy. I know there’s a thought in golf about keeping the links a sanctuary away from the relationship. Separation of course and coupling, if you will. And I am far from someone to refute [...]

Top dressing for success

2016-02-03T09:51:28+00:00By |Categories: Fun Facts, On the Green|Tags: |

You may notice from time to time a silvery sheen on our greens. In fact, you will notice it at all the best courses in Hawaii. As some of you may know, that sheen is evidence that the superintendent has applied a light sand topdressing. Many mistake this for a heavy maintenance procedure. But trust [...]

Beginners: Are they really slowing us down?

2016-02-03T09:50:47+00:00By |Categories: Off the Fairway|Tags: , , , , |

Before I make this next statement, I want you to know that it’s coming from someone with nearly a decade’s worth of experience in the golf industry. I have been a cart attendant, starter, marshal, Pro Shop worker, and even a Club Play and Tournament coordinator before I landed this comfy desk job. I have [...]
