In true May Long Weekend fashion, the golf courses here at Fairmont will be a hub of activity. Mountainside and Riverside still have a few tee-times left so if you are looking to play golf then we advise you to book a time right away so you don’t get left watching from the gallery!
The Game Golf originated from a game played on the coast of Scotland during the 15th century. Golfers would hit a pebble instead of a ball around the sand dunes using a stick or club. After 1750, golf evolved into the sport as we recognize it today. In 1774, Edinburgh golfers wrote the first standardized rules for the game of golf.
The golf shops are brimming with new apparel and we are very excited about the fresh colors for 2011. We have introduced a couple of new golf lines to the Riverside Golf shop, Puma and Cross, in both men and ladies styles . These lines bring a real pop of color to the shop. Also new for the 2011 season we have brought in a grouping of plus sizes for the ladies from the Nancy Lopez line. Take a look at www.nancylopez.com to see all the new styles and colours for the ladies this season.
Easter weekend at Fairmont Hot Springs is the place to be! The weather forecast is calling for the best golfing weather we'veve had this year and all 3 golf courses are in excellent spring condition! There will be all sorts of Easter eggs on the golf course but instead of fancy patterns they will have the words “Taylormade” and “Titleist” on them!
Spring seems to be winning the battle against Winter and it's looking nice and sunny for the Easter long weekend. Perfect time to get outside in the sunshine and spend time on the greens. Our golf courses have been open since April 1st and are in great condition ... so if it's cold and, dare I say it, snowy, where you are, head to Fairmont and enjoy the warm weather with us!
I'm no meteorologist but these changes in temperature and weather condition are just plain crazy! Yesterday it was -3, grey and cloudy and we were under 5cm of snow. Today, +3, sunny and blue skies and the golf course greens look lovelier than ever! I just went down to Mountainside which is in full spring mode and there were plenty of people on the putting green and motoring around the course in their carts. Spring arrived overnight and not a moment too soon - Riverside has now been open for a week and Mountainside and Creekside Par 3 opened today!
