Fox Meadow Golf and Country Club July 2015 – I played Fox Meadow last year with my neighbour Len. I was testing out the new clubs I had just bought and it was my last round before getting them fitted. The only thing I remember from this round was the 10th, where I borrowed Len’s 12 degree Callaway driver as I hated the one that came with my clubs and nailed it down the fairway.
Yesterday there was plenty of foxy golf action and that wasn’t necessarily from the ladies I was playing with. Lots of foxes strutting their stuff in the early evening and I was surprised to hear they take your balls. I thought it was only the crows that pinch your balls.
I played with members Cheryl (fellow cross fitter), Debbie and Myrtle, which makes them Foxy Ladies or The Ladies of Fox. Either way it was a great evening for golf and I’m pleased to note not too many bugs.
My golf started off really well and then got a little more ordinary. I did do some fantastic things and had a fantastic putt to end a terrible hole but that is golf and I love it.
The ladies kept me highly amused with the constant berating of the ball as it clearly was not listening nor going where it was directed. Debbie and Myrtle had to take off after nine so Cheryl and I played on.
On the back nine we both had moments of greatness and I must say I was very pleased with my short game following my lesson earlier that day. My 3w and hybrids are still not quite what they used to be and I have some new swinging action to work with, so I’ll get that sorted before I worry about my long game.
Considering the brutal winter that hit PEI, Fox Meadow is in great condition and is not suffering as some island courses are. The grand clubhouse is a focal point and the green hills flow in and out like petals around it.
I had a wonderful afternoon and got some great footage but alas not too many photos.
