Top Tips to Prepare Yourself For The Summer Golf Season

Golfers are generally hardy souls and there are a number in our ranks that will play whatever the weather, come rain, wind or shine all year round. These dedicated souls are the ones you see out on the course, brollies in hand in the middle of December, still cheerful and still enjoying the game.

Yet there is also a significant number of golfers who do put the clubs away for the winter. Some take a break because they don’t like playing in the poorer weather, or for others in cooler climes weather conditions make it impossible for play.

If this is you, then you’ll know that it is around this time of the year as the days start to get longer, that we first think about dragging the clubs out and heading back out onto the course when the spring weather arrives.

Are You Fit For Golf?

One of the biggest and most appealing aspects of golf is that it can be played by almost anybody. There are many different clubs that help people with a wide range of disabilities play the game and as long as you can swing a golf club, then in theory at least, you can play the game to some degree.

However, as increasing numbers of golfers are realising, there is a difference in being fit to play golf and being fit enough to play golf to the maximum of your ability.

Tee Time - Why how you peg up the ball matters

For many people, the biggest decision they have when it comes to a golf tee is simple. It is a choice between whether they opt for the cheaper and more durable plastic ones, which can often be reused time and time again across the course of a round, or the more aesthetically pleasing, but somewhat fragile wooden ones, which are usually good for one good tee shot.

However, teeing up your ball is important and what matters more than the material from which your tee is made from, is that you have the correct tee, or at least the correct height of tee showing above the ground, in order for you to play the shot you want to play.

Mastering the game within a game: A successful guide to putting from the Masters

How much time to do you devote to practising your putting? Be honest. It’s probably nowhere near the amount of time you’ll spend at the range thrashing your driver and irons.

That’s a shame because most of the shots you’ll take in any round, will be with the shortest club in your bag and to neglect it, is in effect doing the same to a third or more of your golf game.

The key differences between winter and summer golf

For most amateur golfers, dealing with a golf course can be a mighty struggle. Holes that have been designed to trip you up combined with those dreaded long par fours can see an amateur’s blood pressure rise and a few 8, 9 or even more written on their cards.

Courses on their own can be mightily tough to get your head around but then you have to factor in the weather and the simple fact of the matter is, change the weather and you change the golf course.

Young-childrean-starting-to-play-golf

In the first part of this two part series of articles, we looked at how relatively cheap and easy it was to get your child up and running in the game of golf.

We looked at how you can buy a small amount of equipment relatively cheaply and then how the child can start to use this equipment, without costing you a fortune in range balls, course fees and the like.

We left off the last article with the child practicing at the local public course practice area, hitting plenty of balls to gain an elemental degree of control and mastery of the clubs.
Once your child can hit the ball from the tee and off the floor with a relative degree of success (by no means do they need to do it every time), they’ll no doubt be wanting to test their skills on a golf course.

Get Your Child into Golf This Christmas – Part One

Modern day children spend more time indoors, playing video games than any other generation preceding them.
Of course, while a little fun on the games console is all well and good, there is a real risk of an entire generation turning into couch potatoes living only for the press of a button on their console controller.

Getting kids out into the open air, especially from the formative ages of around 7 and upwards, is vital to a healthy development. Children are naturally inquisitive and enthusiastic and usually willing to try most things.

Golf is a perfect game for most children to try, yet many people are put off because they believe that helping a child get into golf will be extremely expensive initially with major ongoing costs attached to it afterwards.
