Golf Canada welcomes Snooker Canada

Thank you Golf Canada for allowing me to be a guest at this great event!  Since it only comes to Montreal once every few years, and on top of that, the golf course was only 15 minutes from my house, I could not say no to visiting the largest golf tournament in the country, even if Tiger could not make it.

It was my first experience going to see a professional golf tournament. I went there with my Snooker mindset because I wanted to see how a professional golf tournament is run, and maybe pick up some ideas for future events in the world of snooker here in Canada.

I must say, this was very impressive in many ways. Everything in this event screamed out professionalism and I admired that very much.  It also happened to be at the oldest golf course in North America, which made it even more fascinating.

The staff that welcomed the spectators were courteous, knowledgeable and friendly. The security was everywhere and it was evident that whoever was in charge of this team ran a very tight ship.
The volunteers looked and acted like they were getting paid for their work, and may I say, there were hundreds of them all over the place.

The sponsorship areas were run in a very smooth and clean way. I must have counted at least 10 actual cars (BMW) that were on display in different areas of the golf course.

Finally, the energy of the whole event was one of relaxation and it felt exactly like what I have seen on television for so many years, only better, if that makes any sense.

Did I pick up any ideas for the next Snooker Canada event? You betcha, in fact, I think I may have recruited someone already.  See you on the baize soon…
