UK Voted On Cancun Golf Courses

Cheryl

Big apologies for taking so long to contact you now we are back in UK.
Really pleased I made contact with you for your guidance on the courses and a big thank you for sorting everything out for us it made it much easier which I guess is the idea anyway.
All the three courses were excellent and we both thoroughly enjoyed them each one was quite different.
My favourite was Playa Paraiso. Although it was quite a journey from where we were staying it was well worth the effort and I could quite happily have played the course every day for the rest of my days.
Iberostar Piramid
Everyone was really friendly and helpful at the courses which was also a consistent comment for Cancun as a whole. Lovely people and can’t wait to return.
Courses in order of preference
1/ Playa Paraiso
2/ Riviera Cancun
3/ Playa Mujeres
Playa Mujeres
For your info we had one very minor problem at Playa Mujeres who hadn’t got a record of the booking but were fine when I showed them the booking form.
Riviera Cancun
Cant thank you enough and definitely want to return to such a lovely country, just need to save up.
Enjoy paradise
Regards
Dave

The Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge Golf Club

This was sent to Tee’d Off Tee Times and we felt it needed to be shared our home golf course in Canada…# 4 at JPL is a beautiful Par 3 with a green surrounded by bunkers… 3 grizzlies and a coyote!

photo (1)   It took 50 teams of horses and 200 men working together for a year in order to clear the land of boulders and debris to prepare it for what would become one of Canada’s premiere golf courses.  Since the opening of the mountain golf course in 1925, this jewel set deep in the heart of the Canadian Rockies has been the setting of unforgettable memories for all of those who come to play at this luxury Alberta golf destination. Stanley Thompson, Canada’s master golf course architect, displayed some of the finest work of his career with this design. The 18-hole layout offers elevated tee boxes, dramatic bunkering and holes aligned with distant mountain vistas. He built wide fairways that carve through thick forest, and maintained a partnership with the environment’s natural contours, blending beautiful landscapes with challenging terrain.  As a result, few golf courses in the world can match the rugged majesty of this national treasure. The Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge initiated a restoration project in 1994 to return this legendary Canada golf course back to its initial layout. Using Thompson’s original blueprints from 1924, the main focus of the

project was spent on restoring the bunkers and tee boxes in an effort to recreate the fundamental design.Highly acclaimed for its challenging layout and spectacular beauty, the Jasper Park Lodge Golf Club is rated by SCORE Golf Magazine as the #1 Best Golf Resort in Canada. It has also received 4.5 Stars from Golf Digest, the Gold Tee award from Meetings and Incentive Magazine 7 years in a row, and the Successful Meetings Magazine Pinnacle Award 6 years running. Today, this award-winning Alberta golf course remains one of the ”must play” courses in Canada; it’s a true classic that combines the best of what Canada golf is all about — a love of the history and the game itself.

Wegmans LPGA Championship,

A look at some of the top player picks for the Wegmans LPGA Championship, the second major and the 13th tournament of the 2013 LPGA season. The tournament, in Pittsford, N.Y., begins today: Top 3: 12 06 creamerp 146125442 620x349

  • Paula Creamer: Creamer has five top-10 finishes in nine starts in this event and has finished T3 and T9 the last two years at Locust Hill Country Club. Even though she’s never won the Wegmans LPGA Championship, this might be the week that Creamer breaks her victory drought (the last win came in the 2010 U.S. Women’s Open). Creamer has finished no worse than T17 since February on the LPGA. A consistent start may bode well since Creamer has finished with 66-67-68-68 in her last four tournamentsStacy-Lewis-moves-up-in-Rolex-Player-of-the-Year-standings-190763
  • Stacy Lewis: Lewis has recorded top 10s in three of four career starts at this event, including a T2 last year. At Locust Hill, she has eight consecutive rounds of par or better. She also finished T9 in 2009 at Locust Hill before the venue became a major championship site.Na Yeon Choi
  • Na Yeon Choi: A consistent season for most people is considered uneven for the reigning U.S. Women’s Open champion. But taking the South Korean to the Northeast as she prepares for her U.S. Open title defense could be motivation. Choi hasn’t won since the Open title last summer but has finishes of T6, T7, T12 and T18 in her last four starts.
