MARKET- Calgary

MARKET – Calgary

Terry was golfing, so I explored the restaurants on 17th Street and decided on Market.  The motif is black and white with a modern turn…white chairs with white tables and cloths…black chairs, black tables and cloths.  Young, attractive chefs and waitresses.  I additional to using ingredients from the garden out back, neighboring  farms contribute to the menu.  I enjoyed a sandwich named Belt….potato bread, lightly toasted, friend egg, bacon and cucumber!  Delicious food with Florence and the Machine providing lively background music!

Lynx Ridge, the first course I played in Calgary, has a very interesting layout,  The par three 8th hole was 185 yards from the white elevated tee box and you had to carry the pond in front of the green.  The day I played the greens were fast, because  they were having the Alberta ladies championships.  On hole 8,  I used a 5 iron to get 8 feet from the right side pin placement, that left me a straight downhill putt.  I left the ball on the edge of the cup missing my birdie.   Here is the link:  The Lynx Ridge
