let's clear a few things up

Tim Horton's coffee is terrible (the doughnuts are good though)
Molson beer is also terrible (Russell is better...Phillips is not)

Alberta needs more trees for its courses

Canucks can suck it
I'd dump on the Oilers but they've been sad for so long it's just uncalled for on my part

On this we agree brother.

Some really good Canadian coffee roasters DO exist, such as Bows & Arrows, Phil & Sebastian, and Detour. Tim's is so bad, but I like the potato wedges. Has anyone tried the waffle breakfast sandwich yet?

Canadian beer - you've got a lot to like there, but nothing by Molson or Labatts. Steam Whistle is solid if you are going for that style.

Molson Canadian is also a decent beer up here actually it's the usual generic but they have excellent ads involving the catch phrase "I am Canadian" ... if you find some down there it's the best beer to mix with clamato other than that nothing special.
I enjoyed Kokanee over molson or labatt on my visits to the great white north.

Russell is pretty good. But living close to the Phillips brewery it’s hard to beat their variety and selection. At least you don’t have to deal with the hipsters trying to make lucky lager and PBR popular cheap beer again. But yeah the canucks can suck it.

The only time people leave BC is to usually chase that Berta oil money!

First off Canadian beer is always 5%... so even regular swill packs a better punch. yes the major ones suck, Canadian is excellent with Clamato for red eyes or bloody Mary's I think it's called. I will stand up for Philips they make some good stuff their Crookeder Tooth pumpkin ale is excellent.. Brand favourite tough probably Parrallel 49, Vancouver Island Hermann at or is excellent but 9.5%.

I'm a yank but played in Cranmore and loved the course. Incredible mountain views, some difficult shots. Could use some new baskets but a definite must play in the Calgary/Banff area

What's up, hosers? Yeah, Labatt's, Molson, and Moosehead all suck. Those are the only Canadian beers that are readily available around here. When we were in Toronto, we tried many quality Canadian brews (the names of which are lost to me).

The only DG I played up there was Toronto Island which was a lot of fun. Totally flat, but plenty of water shots. From what I've seen on this website and youtube, you guys have some courses that I need to visit.

Hi, all! I live in Dawson Creek BC, and played my first winter round today in a foot of snow under blue skies and sunshine. -13C, so not too cold.
We have a great club up here and by next July we hope to have three full 18 hole courses within 20 minutes of downtown.

It’s nice to see a Canada specific thread! 🇨🇦

Hey good stuff man.. Welcome to the party!

Do you guys attach a ribbon through the disc so you can find it in the snow? -13 is balmy when I was in Calgary any time it warmed up to that the joggers were out in shorts!

Moose head is the best out of the three beers listed above we export all our crap beer kinda like Australia and Foster's and it is Canmore.. Not hatin just sayin...
