It’s finally that time of year again, Golf season is here!
Myself, and fellow Rattlesnake Golf Professionals Brian Cvetkovic and Bryan Overland had the opportunity to play Hidden Lake Golf Club this past Monday.
...it was great to get out on the course and enjoy the sun for the first time this season!
Going into the round we were all excited to see the ball get into the air as opposed to going into a net.
A special thank you goes to the team at Hidden Lake for getting their course ready for our members to enjoy.
If you’re like me, you’ve spent all winter thinking about how you can save strokes out on the golf course, or perhaps planning out your new ‘catch-phrase’ for when you outdrive the other members of your weekend foursome.
One of the best parts about playing golf is that you can always improve your technique and strategy, if you have some extra time to hone your game at our practice facility or would like to see how you can manage your game best on the golf course, the professionals at Rattlesnake are always here to assist you.
Do you have a child or a grandchild that has expressed an interest in golf?
Our rebranded Golf Academy has a strong emphasis on getting children into the game!
We have weekly programs and camps spread throughout the season, so whatever your schedule, we have an option that will work for you.
Opening day at Rattlesnake is upon us and I am looking forward to seeing all of our members and guests at the club this weekend.
As a newer member of the Professional Staff, my goal is to play golf with as many of you as I can. (I promise, I won’t hold you up!)

See you soon!
I know the weather outside doesn’t look good, especially this weekend the weekend right after the Masters.
.... for me the Masters is a sign spring is here, but not this year not yet anyway. Don’t worry the better weather is coming it has to be!!!
Here’s are a few ideas for you to get ready for the golf season:
We are looking forward to seeing you soon and we are here to help with anything you need to make it a great season.
Sorry we can’t change the weather!!!
MILTON, ON -- The PGA of Canada - Ontario Zone capped off their 2017 tournament schedule yesterday at Glencairn Golf Club with the Levelwear Fall Scramble. The Fall Scramble is a three-player team event and is without a doubt the lowest scoring and most widely contested event of the year. Levelwear Golf was on site sweetening the deal with tee gifts for all the players and generously supporting all the teams going head-to-head for the purse which measured over $17,000. Feathers were flying as every team in the sold-out tournament was under-par and twelve of those teams were ten-under or better. It was the team of Brian Cvetkovic (Rattlesnake Golf Club), Bryan Overland (Rattlesnake Point Golf Club), and Chris McClure (Rattlesnake Point Golf Club) who elevated their game, relied on a dominant putting performance and finished the round with thirteen birdies and an eagle on their way to a fifteen-under 57.
"Matching shirts was the key," the trio joked after the round. "You don't win an event like this if you don't all play well," Cvetkovic continued. "We used a lot of Chris' drives and Bryan's drives, and coming into the green all three of us were contributing. Even when it looked like we were down and out and we needed a big putt to keep the round going there was always that last guy who would step up and drain it. It definitely came down to putting. The greens were really pure, and if you hit your line the ball was going to go in."
The three guys played a practice round earlier in the week and it paid off. They took that extra little bit of course knowledge and put it to the test. "You absolutely need to find the fairway if you want to score well here," McClure added. "Most importantly, be aware of where the escarpment is or you will start second guessing yourself on the break. If you just base it off of where the escarpment is and trust your reads you can make some very key putts at key times."
The teams of Jim Currie/Nick Maracle/Curtis Pitre, Chris Hatch/Andrew McCarthy/Luke Pulla, Bill Mackenzie/John Rushnell/Rick Willan, and Kyle Docherty/Tyler Fitzgerald/Cameron Gall all finished two-back of the winning trio at 13-under 59 and nicely rounded out the top five.
