Murray McCourtEDMONTON, Alberta (Gord Montgomery/iG) — Trees are our friends. Well, maybe except in the case of when they get in the way of letting the sunshine reach a putting green.

But instead of simply dealing harshly with those offending buddies by cutting them down or thinning them out, the Ranch Golf & Country Club, just west of Edmonton, moved the putting green and left the trees alone.

“We rebuilt the hole completely from 100 yards and in,” Murray McCourt, the executive pro/GM at the track, a former site of the Canadian Tour’s Telus Open, said. “In that pro-cess we moved the green about 30 yards forward and a little more to the right.

alt(Andrew Foscarin/Golf Canada Magazine) — When you purchase a new car, it comes with a warranty. Ditto when you buy a TV. The same applies for a couch, appliance and even a smartphone too. But why not golf? After doling out countless dollars to fill and upgrade our golf bags, shouldn’t we be offered some protection on the equipment we use and invest in? Well, for Golf Canada members, there is.

Launched in 2015, the Golf Canada Equipment Identification & Retrieval System was developed to reunite golfers with lost gear. Through the simple use of labels, all equipment — including clubs, headcovers, rangefinders and even your cell phone — can now be easily recovered should it ever escape your possession on the golf course.
