Pitch and Putt Golf - Various locations

by dad


Our son Nathan loves watching golf on television.  When he was four years old he started playing miniature golf in Parksville, Vancouver Island, on our summer vacations there.  He's now nine years old and is always asking me to take him down to the local pitch and putt course in North Vancouver (Murdo Frazer pitch and putt golf course).  I have admit it is fun to get out with Nathan and smack the ball around, although I spend an inordinate amount time looking for my lost ball.  If you've never tried pitch and putt, you should: it doesn't take much time, doesn't cost an arm and leg, everybody has fun, and the courses are challenging enough so you can still pretend your Tiger Woods at Pebble Beach.
