Season 2 of the series of short films was from our friends at The Preferred Lie concludes with Episode 8 – The Opportunity.

How does a 100 year-old golf course prepare itself for the next century of existence? How can grass type affect the playability, sustainability, and operational bottom line of an entire golf course? What facilities are the next generation of golfers looking for in a golf club? Can golf data analytics keep up with evolving architecture techniques?

In ‘The Opportunity’, Riley Johns breaks down the proposed Master Plan for Point Grey (pending member approval in 2022). Dave Zibrik gives us a tour of ‘The Farm’ (the club’s new world class practice facility), Tyler Patroch breaks down his team’s mentality and how to create a playable surface in a variable climate, and Matt Courchene speaks about the future of strokes gained. In 10 years, is Point Grey the most desirable club to join in the Greater Vancouver Area? We’ll let you decide for yourself.

This episode features Riley Johns (Rhebb & Johns Golf Course Design), Dave Zibrik (Head Professional), Tyler Patroch (Director of Course and Grounds), Braham Teja (2021 Club President), and Matt Courchene (Data Golf).
