As the thread title says....Vancouver Island is the location and the golf course is called Sunnydale, just outside of Courtenay, B.C.

I know Mike McCrindle very well.....we fly at the same club field in Merville....
If you travel north out of Courtenay on 19A you need to turn left opposite Coleman Rd and take the first left at the sign for FliteSupply hobby shop......the turn is about 10 mins past Courtenay Motorsports motorcycle dealer for a reference point. Tuesday night, Friday night and most Sat or Sun you will be able to find him at the hobby shop or on the field which is located 200 yds away.

I watched the second video and it reminds me of one of those dreams where you get to fly (my favorite type).

Very nice. My wife and I spent a week on Vancouver Island a few years ago. We stayed in a bed and breakfast in Courtenay. Thanks for the blast from the past!

WOW, they still kicking around. I used to buy stuff from them when I was living in Campbell river(in 1980). Nice to hear they're still around.
