Loudmouth Golf Skins Game

Posted by on Aug 1, 2012

Two weeks ago, you may have noticed a few people walking around Niagara with the loudest golf shorts you’ve ever seen! The Loudmouth Golf Skins Game was being held at Thundering Waters on July 23rd, with John Daly playing in a game the next day. The Best Western Plus Cairn Croft Hotel was the official hotel for the event and was even represented on the first whole by some of their awesome staff (rocking out in the Loudmouth Gear of course)! There were promotions and samplings on every hole: Carlsberg, Appleton Estate Jamaica Rum, Callaway Golf and Molson Coors. Everyone who went said it was...

Mini-Putt at The Super Putt

Whirlpool doesn’t just have a great course…It also has great food!

Most people think that golf courses are off limits unless they golf, but this is certainly not true. Coming from a girl who yells “fore” or misses the ball more than she hits it, golf courses are always trying to entice locals and travellers to stop in, eat, or even try playing a round (if they are up for it).

That is why Hayley and I decided to try out Whirlpool and see what their dining was like. Stepping into the...
