Get Cooking in Los Cabos Mexico by Jane Finn

It’s just after eight on Saturday morning. The hotel is quiet at this time of day with only a few people on the beach catching some early rays. With cafe in hand I thought this would be a great spot to sit and quietly make notes but I no sooner got settled into my lounger when I spotted a whale spout and then another and another.

Golf Lana’i Hawaii

Lana’i Hawaii – Experience the Challenge then Challenge the Experience

by Dave & Jane Finn

Lana’i HI – The title is a bit of a play on words but aptly applies to golf in this Polynesian paradise. Unless you’ve been to the State of Hawaii before you probably don’t know much about Lana’i. It’s the smallest inhabited island in this Pacific chain measuring just over 35 by 13 miles and sits about 9 miles west of Maui but feels like a world away.  Formally known as the “Pineapple Island”, it’s now the place where Hawaiians go to get away from it all.

La Dolce Veneto – Venice and Beyond!

By Jane Finn

Despite the fact that I studied art history and Dave architecture at university, after Rome and Florence, we were on historical and cultural ‘overload’.  We knew that like fine wine and great food, we needed a break to experience the ‘dolce vita’ and not rush our Venice experience. Firmly believing that the charm of the Veneto community extended well beyond the lagoon, we grabbed a rental car at the Maestro station and headed for the countryside and a couple of rounds of golf before venturing off to Venezia, reportedly the most visited city in the world.

Almost Free to Golf in Santee, SC

By Dave Finn

Santee SC – I have exhibited at or attended well over a hundred golf and travel shows across Canada and the north east United States and have yet to find a better valued golf destination then Santee.  You tell me!  Where else can you go to stay and play 18 holes of golf with a power cart, overnight accommodation and continental breakfast for $56 USD?  In my own backyard, green fees alone start at $56 and that’s without a cart let alone food and a room to flop in.

Born on the Bayou! Lake Charles, Louisiana

by Dave Finn

Lake Charles LA – “Chasin’ down a hoodoo there.”  Even though it reminds me of my golf game, I’m sure John Fogerty from the famed rock group Creedence Clearwater Revival never imagined that his song would be an inspiration for a golf article.  His lyrics are more about living in Louisiana rather than chasing a little white ball, but still the song continues to resonate with me!

Southwest Colorado – You are so beautiful to me! by Dave Finn

Most people I talk to associate Colorado with Coors beer, the Denver Bronco’s Mile High Stadium and world renowned downhill snow skiing at Vale and Aspen mountains.   What many don’t realize is that Colorado is a land of contrasts with a diverse topography that ranges from flat-topped mesas to raging rivers valleys, from lush orchards to desolate desert badlands.  Head for the southwestern corner of the state and discover nature at her finest along with endless year round opportunities for any golfer or outdoor sport enthusiast.
