Attending ABC golf tournament hosted by Margaret Wong's at Morgan Creek Golf Club http://www.morgancreekgolf.com has been a treat or me the last couple of years. The Morgan Creek Golf Club in South Surrey is a fabulous course. The tournament is not only for corporate purposes but also supports the worthwhile charity of CHILD (for children with ileitis and colitis). The tournament was held in late July this year.
Before the tournament began I was able to warm up with a bucket of complimentary range. It was really peaceful and I was the only one on the practice range. My drives at the practice range were clean and straight. This is usually a bad sign as my on course drives are usually directly opposite to my range performance.
The golf course is nestle amongst South Surrey homes and the golf course. If you drive along Morgan Creek Way, the course seems to pop up out of blue. Once you are on the course, you almost forget that you are in a residential area. Well I almost forgot until I richoched a golf ball off the roof of one of the beautiful Morgan Creek homes. Before you mumble under your breath about me, I did go talk to the resident. He was working in his garden and good naturedly lead me to me ball (phew!!! - no damage). By the way the gardens around this course are also amazingly beautiful according to my wife. I don't tend to pay attention to flowers.
The fairways and greens are extremely well maintained and manicured and the backdrop of the coast mountains is amazing. I think I hit only two fairways but my steadfast golfing heart kept plugging along. Luckily I didn't throw in the towel because dispite my abysmal drives, I actually won closest to the pin. That's golf!
The tournament was followed up by thanks yous to and from Margaret and a wonderful wonderful banquet meal.
Thank you Margaret Wong and ABC for a wonderful day!
