About Me

Do You Like to Golf, I Do!

Hi everyone!

My name is Shawn and I have been an avid golfer for over 35 years. That’s me in the middle of the picture below at the famed “Old Course” at the home of golf, St. Andrews. It was always a dream of mine to be able to play at St. Andrews and when my family moved to England back in 2003, I thought this was going to be the best chance for me to fulfill my dream. A few of my golfing buddies here in Ottawa joined up with me in St. Andrews for a “once in a lifetime experience”.

The main picture located at the top of this website is actually hole #2 at my golf course in Ottawa. When the flag is placed on the top portion of the green, it is the toughest hole on the course. Unfortunately, you don’t get a real appreciation from the picture how steep the green actually is from top to bottom.

I created this website because I wanted to provide information on golf clubs, golf accessories and “all that is golf”. There are links on this site that will allow you to purchase golf-related items, from golf caps, to shoes, to new and used clubs. You will also find a Fundamentals link on this site and here you will find specific videos that will help explain some of the basic fundamentals you should know that will help you to play better golf. Feel free to check out the other links and if you’re looking for a specific golf item, you may find it for sale on this site.

I hope you enjoy this site as much as I did creating it. Have a great golf season!  

Again, my name is Shawn.  It’s nice to meet you and feel free to contact me if you ever need anything.  Drop me a comment below or you can always get in touch with me via WealthyAffiliate.com (here is a link to my profile).

All the best!

    Thats a beautiful course, and I am glad I had a chance to come back numerous times to this site already, helping me to appreciate the vast amounts of golf terrain out there that I may never see up close so this is the next best thing. Keep photos coming, since that is worth a thousand words. More of your story is great too.

      It was an incredible course Andrew! I was in awe as we stood on the first tee while the starter took a picture of our foursome before we tee’d off, with the Royal and Ancient clubhouse behind us. And not too far from the first tee is the ocean which would have been on the left hand side of the picture. I think my most favorite moment was walking over the bridge on the 18th hole and then stopping on the bridge to get a picture taken. The same bridge where all the big name golfers had also walked. That was a huge thrill for me!
      Best regards,
      Shawn

    First of all, I’m jealous! That is so awesome on so many levels. Both golf courses featured are absolutely beautiful and it’s so cool to read that your dream of playing at St. Andrews was able to become a reality. I greatly enjoy golf though do not get to play nearly as much as I would like. Someday that will change. Until then I can live vicariously through people like you who choose to share your passion online. Thank you.

      Thanks very much for your comments Robert! It definitely was a real treat to be able to play at St. Andrews. That’s one of the things I like the most about playing golf is the scenery of the golf courses. Absolutely beautiful! And with fall here now, the leaves are changing color on the trees at our golf course which is also beautiful. Hopefully one day soon, you’ll be able to play more golf.
      Regards,
      Shawn

    Lovely place St Andrews!

    A group of us were staying at Gleneagles for the new year back in 2003, all the courses in the area were playing under winter greens due to snow. In desperation we rang all the golf courses in the area to see if we could get on a decent track, no luck. St Andrews was the only options left, it would blow the budget out the water but what the hell! We called and got a tee time, not the ‘old course’ but an awesome day at the home of golf was had by all.

      Hi Stan,
      I don’t think you could go wrong playing any of the St. Andrews courses. We managed to play the “old” course twice and the “new” course once on the package deal we got. I’m glad you managed to get on a decent track. How did your round go?
      Regards,
      Shawn

    Shawn,
    What an amazing experience playing at St. Andrews must of been for your and your buddies. The walk over the bridge after 18 must have been surreal as well. How’d your round go? Have you played on other pro courses in your many years of golf? I would love to play there sometime its just out of a college kids price range and I think I’d 10 putt every green lol

      Hi John,
      You’re right, it was an incredible experience! The one thing that really stood out for me was that it is a public course and we saw people walking their dogs down the fairways as you’re playing your round. As I was preparing to putt on the 18th green, a couple came over to me and asked if they could borrow my putter and ball and one pretended to putt while the other one took a picture.
      It was a completely different course than what I’m used to, with all the deep bunkers and huge greens. There was a par 3 that we were playing and there was a double green. I ended up having a putt over 100 feet away! I managed to shoot an 81 from the white tees and as we walked over the bridge on 18 we stopped and took a picture of everyone. It was so surreal, knowing the people who had walked over that bridge before us.
      I would love to go over there again sometime, maybe when I retire, but at least I can cross it off my bucket list.
      Regards,
      Shawn
