Canadian Club

Without doubt, one of the hottest courses of the year is the newly opened Cabot Cliffs, located on the western side of Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. This Coore/Crenshaw design that covers Ireland-like dunes and spectacular rocky cliffs joins the highly regarded Cabot Links to make this a must-visit destination. Here’s a great way to see and play them both, October 14-15, and benefit the Golf Canada Foundation, the country’s leading source for golf philanthropy, providing grassroots development programs for kids, collegiate golfers, and Olympic golf, among other worthy goals. The two-day event includes one round on each course, meals, cocktails, prizes, and accommodations at the Cabot Links Lodge, for $10,000 for a foursome (only about $7,500 US).

The Mole Truth?

It’s the unofficial end of summer. Days getting shorter, tans fading, and chances to tee it up starting to blow away like the soon-to-be falling leaves. Plus, the news from the golf world is crazy: Feherty leaving CBS? No Grand Slam of Golf? The Donald is a cheater? Caitlyn Jenner is applying to private clubs as “Bruce”? (Which tees does she want to play from?) It’s enough to make you want to stick your head in the sand. The BUZZ thinks you need a “head-in-the-sand” kind of silly video to cheer you up. So here it is, something we found on YouTube that, honestly, we have no idea if it’s authentic or doctored. It features a disembodied hand, a really silly-sounding English accent, and—purportedly—a golf course superintendent who can find moles underground as if he’s dowsing for water. Is it real? Is it fake? Don’t know, and honestly, don’t care. It’s good for a laugh, which is just what we need right now. Enjoy, and make the most of this last long weekend of the summer. You’ve earned it!

Good Call

With the Deutsche Bank Championship starting tomorrow at TPC Boston, the news of a federal judge lifting New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's four-game suspension was the talk of the range on Thursday. "I think it was the right decision,” said Rory McIlroy, who played with Brady at Augusta National in March. "I'm very happy for him, obviously. He obviously felt like he didn't do anything wrong. There was no evidence to suggest he did anything wrong, so it's great. It's great for the area. It's great for him. It's great for the team. So, hopefully, everyone can put it behind them and move on. I'll definitely send him a text." Even diehard Cowboys fan Jordan Spieth approved, despite the fact that Brady would have missed the game with Dallas on Oct. 11 had the suspension been upheld. "You always want to beat the best when they're playing their best," Spieth said. "I think that the Cowboys are fully capable beating the Patriots."

Free Golf!

Got your attention? Good because Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa in Austin, Texas, is offering guests a free birthday round now through next September. The resort is doing it to commerorate its own anniversary on September 5th when it turns 18 years old. What started as a private country club in the mid-1980s became a great golf destination in 1987. Today it has four courses, two by Tom Fazio, one by Arnold Palmer, and another by Austin native Ben Crenshaw—his first solo design that helped launch his impressive architecture career with partner Bill Coore. The great thing about the birthday deal is you get to choose the course and can play your round within seven days of your birthday. Getting older does have some advantages.
