Suggestion to Cpaf or Montreal golf directors: Instead of having 2 age groups (+18 & + 50) & sub divided into handicap groups with all the men playing from the same tees; why not just have various handicap groups with say, under 15 playing from blue tees & over 15 play from whites (regardless of age). Handicaps are based on golf ability, not age. Similar for the women. Scratch golfers play from blacks. It was not fun for an 18 handicap player to constantly have to hit fairway metals or hybrids...

James Moore Any player over 60 should be allowed to play up. Two guys in my group had a tough time reaching the greens on the long par 4s and the par 5s in regulation (GIR). 2 years ago

Richard Williams As you know, the handicap is an index and is derived by applying the score, tees played (which should have correct slope and rating). In the case of this competition, the index should be multiplied by the slope of the course we are playing divided... Show more 2 years ago

Disappointed at Landsdowne today. Hosting an event which delayed tee times by half an hour prior to WPFG golf, then after finishing, no bar or restaurant open?? Box lunch & free water was a nice touch. Thanks to all the volunteers for their help.

Just wondering if all the rain & flooding Fairfax had has affected the condition of the 3 courses? Hope it isn't a repeat of NYC.

Still wondering why curling (an iconic Canadian game) is not an event in Montreal?

We have fellow competitors staying in different locations & will be arriving at RFK for the Opening Ceremonies via various modes of transportation. Not knowing the stadium layout; what would be the best location outside the stadium for all to meet that can be easily located for those arriving by metro, car & WPFG transportation. Thanks

Just wondering why people are so interested in finding out how many teams/participants are in a specific age group/event? I thought this event was to bring together brothers & sisters in friendly competition. Does it matter how many people you'll be competing against? Having competed in 11 other WPFG I have never wondered how many others I would be playing against. Even if I had to be in a younger age group, who cares. It's all about meeting new people from around the world, making new... Show more

Matthew Wyatt If someone wants to know how many people they will be competing against then who cares what you do or your preference is. No one cares how many games you've competed in niether. For that matter I hope it's against me. 2 years ago

Don Bailey I would like to know. If longevity in the games is a keystone to authority in the matter, I've been competing in these since 1985, the first games. I've met some great athletes from around the world and would like to see if they're coming to... Show more 2 years ago

Craig Luecke Guys, just so you know we do not post non-team event numbers per discipline. This prevents something known as 'medal shopping'. Only bracketed sports will be displayed prior to the Games. This social network website is the place to look for other... Show more 2 years ago

Brenda Guerra For bracketed sport events, the number of teams or persons affects the length of time from start of play to playoffs. If you have 40 teams and 4 courts then the number of days will be longer than if you have 10 courts available. Most people think... Show more 2 years ago

Curling gear stowed away after one of my best curling seasons on record. Provincial appearance, District win, 2 runner-up bonspiels finishes and 3-peat of Hamilton Victoria Club Championship!
First tee time of the year booked for Tue, golfing in Florida in May, 23rd annual golf weekend with the boys set for just before WPFG & 4 day golf trip planned to Whistling Straits in WS for Sep!!

Less than 3 months to go before I get to see all my WPFG friends from past games & looking forward to making new ones! Still upset no curling event in WPFG 2017 held in Canada!

Mike Oda Feeling better today after agreeing to go on a buddy's golf trip to Whistling Straits/Black Wolf Run in Sep for 5 days/6 rounds of golf just 2 weeks after the PGA Championship is being played there! 2 years ago

Back from Hawaii, back on the golf course & preparing for the upcoming curling season. Still upset no curling 2017 WPFG Montreal! 2 million curlers in the world, over 1.3 million in Canada & 15,000 in the US. Although invented in Scotland, curling is truly a Canadian sport!
