New for 2013
Due to many requests we will now be carrying select TaylorMade golf products in the Fraserview Golf Shop this season.
To get every potential yard out of your driver you need to achieve the precise combination of launch angle and spin-rate that promotes maximum carry and roll. With R1 you can 1) Choose from five Face-Angle positions so you can achieve the look you want at address and to help you square the face to the ball at impact.2) Choose from 12 Loft-Sleeve settings between 8° and 12°. 3) Choose from two ways to position the movable Shot-Shape weights to promote a straight flight or a distance-enhancing draw.
RBZ Stage 2 Metal Woods
The Speed Pocket feature of the Stage 1 woods added a dramatic speed-boost to the club face that promotes up to 17 added yards compared to our Burner fairways. RBZ Stage 2 fairways improve on that by promoting another 10 yards. Do the math and you get 17 + 10 yards when you compare RBZ Stage 2 fairway woods to older fairway wood models. That’s right, up to 27 more yards. In other words, prepare to reach more par-5s in two…

New Forged Utility Irons from Titleist
Titleist has added a new product for long game performance with the introduction of 712U, a forged utility iron that provides high speed, traditional blade iron players with improved playability and shot control.
Engineered with a deep center of gravity for a higher moment of inertia, Titleist 712U delivers increased stability and playability versus a traditional long iron while providing enhanced trajectory and spin control versus a hybrid. A result of extensive research and tour player testing conducted by the Titleist Golf Club R&D team, 712U features a wider, camber sole design and is effective for a variety of attack angles, making the club more versatile when trying to hit high or low shots. 712U also uses a tapered-tip iron shaft for additional trajectory control.
Special Order Now!
We can now special order the Titleist 712U at Fraserview. Stop by the golf shop to speak with Alex, our Certified Titleist Club Fitter, about your game and the 712U or call 604-257-6923 for more information.
Golf Club Re-Gripping
Spring is a good time to have your golf clubs re-gripped before you get into the swing of the season and do not want a mid-season change. There are various reasons to re-grip you clubs with the most common being wear and tear. Years of wear on the same set of grips have likely made your grips smoother than they started which makes them slippery and hard to grip.
Another reason to have your golf clubs re-gripped is that they are the wrong size. If you are playing with grips that came with your clubs, there is a good chance they are the wrong size! Most new golf clubs come with standard-sized grips but not all golfers have standard-sized hands. The correct grip size allows you to set the club properly at the top of the backswing. A grip that is too small can cause the club face to close and lead to right to left ball flight. A grip that is too large can cause a left to right ball flight for the right handed player.
If you have questions about your grips drop by the golf shop at Fraserview and speak to Tom or Alex. We offer competitive pricing on re-gripping services and a quick turn around time. Call 604-257-6923 for more information.

“Numbers often hold special significance in our lives, and we wanted to provide Titleist loyalists the opportunity to make that connection with their Pro V1 or Pro V1x,” said Mary Lou Bohn, Vice President Golf Ball Marketing and Communications. “It’s been exciting to hear from Team Titleist members the stories and meanings behind the numbers they’ve chosen.”

Canada Revenue Agency rules
Did you know that CRA does not allow golf as an entertainment expense? CRA does not allow deductions for expenses incurred by business people entertaining clients at golf courses. But they do allow expenses such as hockey tickets or a soccer game.
How this affects the golf industry
Canada’s 2,500 golf courses, most of whom are small business operators, cannot compete fairly with all the other industries where CRA does support entertaining clients. Over time, the unfairness of this discrimination against the golf industry has become more and more significant, and absolutely has an impact on golf course owners across the country.
Grass Roots Advocacy
NAGA – National Allied Golf Associations – has begun a lobbying effort to change the way that CRA views golf. They have created a kit that explains the current tax situation and the challenges faced by the golf industry.
