Below is an article on Better Golf submitted by Kevan and Steve.
Better Golf’s teaching philosophy will be based on the twin pillars of technology and physical fitness. By utilizing today’s latest technology, golf lessons can be more productive and dynamic than ever before. We also believe, in conjunction with the Titleist Fitness Institute, that the true potential of a golfer’s swing can only be attained when his/her body is in optimum condition. Do you have to be ripped like Tiger Woods or as malleable as a gymnast? Of course not. But even a moderate improvement in your strength and flexibility will directly enhance your ability to hit great golf shots.
When first arriving at Better Golf, we encourage students to take a screening test designed by the Titleist Performance Institute to help determine their current level of strength and flexibility. The screening will help enable us to determine the best course of action to follow for each student’s situation. After the screening, you’ll also have the option of consulting with one of our sports fitness and injury experts who can create a program for you ensuring your body becomes stronger, more flexible, and less susceptible to injuries.
If you are only interested in golf lessons, you may choose to bypass the screening and/or the option for a fitness program. That’s entirely up to you. Bear in mind, after consulting with the sports fitness and injury expert, you may find some of their services are covered by your health insurance.
Simulator: instead of hitting balls at a busy dome or into a net, the simulator enables you to enjoy watching your shots from start to finish, with true-to-life graphics.
Launch Monitor: reveals all the characteristics of your ball flight including distance, roll, sidespin, spin ratio, ball speed, and smash factor.
Head Measurement Technology: measures the characteristics of your clubhead during a swing, including clubhead speed, swing path, and face angle at impact.
KVest: a 3 dimensional tool capturing the biomechanical movements of your body. From a teaching perspective, it allows us to measure the efficiency of your swing. Bottom line: efficient swings are more important than pretty looking ones.
Tomi Putting: calculates swing path, tempo, and clubface data during your putting stroke.
Screening Consultation: $90.
One hour process designed to determine your current level of strength and flexibility as well as clarifying your objectives for taking lessons. Upon completion of the screening, we’ll recommend a program intended to help you realize your goals. Both Steve and I have been certified by TPI to perform these screenings.

We brought in a crusher to crush all the concrete left over from the demo and we will using this as the base for the road, round about and parking when the time comes. The demo crew filled and compacted as much of the hole as possible but the remaining soil was wet and couldn't be used for this purpose. The plan will be to fill the hole with the material used from the clubhouse excavation.

Second place went to the team of Larry Aicken, Fred Calvert, Glenn Davis and Jim Glover who finished the weekend with 37 points. A surprising Third place finish was captured by the team of Peter Richardson, Fraser Cartwright, Peter Cross and John Doyle who had 34 points.
The points are based upon the number of teams that you beat and are accumulated over the three days. The number of teams competing was up slightly from 2012.
The Day 3 results saw the team of Barry Catterall, Dave Walker, Jody Bevan and Cam Hreljac win the day with a score of 205. Congratulations to Cam on firing an amazing round of 67!
There was a tie for second place between the teams of Peter Richardson, Fraser Cartwright, Peter Cross and John Doyle and Peter Garvey, Dave Wallace, Jim McGilton and Steve Robinson. who both had scores of 206. (Peter's team didn't have much confidence in their ability as no one placed a parimutal wager on the team!!)
Closest to the Pin winners for the three days went to Suzi Snow Liska, John Lyttle and on day three - John Liska.
Congratulations to all the players on a fine weekend of golf.

On the positive side we have received some comments back from the city as it relates to the site plan. The comments are minor in nature and we are prepared to submit our working drawings this week. Cross your fingers that the process moves along quickly, we would really like to have a foundation permit in hand next week (although with the short week that may be a tad optimistic).
I'll update with some pictures on the range tomorrow but the seed will be going down this week.

15 years ago the club removed an old oil tanker that was buried outside the women's locker room. When they removed the tank it looked good, no cracks or leaks but still removed 95 tons of soil and replaced it with clean fill. What they couldn't do is remove the soil that was against the foundation of the building as this would have compromised the structure. As part of our environmental assessment, we had to sample this soil that was abutting the foundation to ensure it was not contaminated.
No problem we thought, a half day of work, we'll scope out a bucket see it's clean and we move on.
We already have 250 tons of contaminated material. What does a 250 tone hole look like?

The "patio" was buzzing as Craig sat back and enjoyed his beverage of choice.
The work on the range has been moving along at a great pace. Tonight they started putting down topsoil on the range tee deck.
