Fall is Here! The Perfect Time to Prepare for Golf Season

Use the time away from the course to become a better golfer. Sounds funny, but you will see results! We all know undergoing a change of any kind takes time. Whether you were working with a golf instructor, relative or friend, swing changes we try to implement need careful practice in order to become a new habit. Be reasonable with your expectations. We are all guilty of feeling as though a golf lesson will fix our swing. But the truth is that only with proper, careful practice will we see the positive results. Follow these steps to be prepared to play better golf next spring!

  1. Set some reasonable goals for next season Are you looking to win your club championship? Get your short irons in the air? Make more consistent contact? Break 100? Write it down! Be realistic and own it! Then you can work on a plan to get there.
  2. Repeat new Swing Habits If you worked with an instructor I am sure they gave you a few exercises or drills to do at home. Now is the time to do it! Use a mirror to look at your swing and where your arms and legs are at certain points throughout the swing. Set up a putting mat at the office or at home. Repetition and feel are crucial in discovering your new swing. Do things in slow motion and break it down into smaller parts. Caution: Check in with your body – These moves shouldn’t hurt. And remember these fundamental body movements don’t require a club. Focus should be on body awareness and balance.
  3. Don’t do it alone There are many facilities where you can receive indoor instruction to get you on track. And check in with them on a regular basis to ensure changes are sticking. Spending your winters watching videos, how-to’s, and reading about the latest fads to increase distance will only serve to waste your time. These “swing Tips” are merely band-aid approaches and do not make consistent, repetitive swing changes. They will often break down when you need it most.
  4. Prepare your equipment Take the time to inspect your clubs to check for any damage. Grips will wear down over time and will need replacing. Visit your local golf store to chat about new equipment, assess your set, stock up on balls, tees and clothing.

I hope you stay active throughout the off-season and are ready to tee it up with confidence next season!

Today, due to circumstances I got to play alongside a competitor to mark her score during the Provincial Golf Championships. It was great to step out on the first tee as a “competitor” and it showed me how much I miss playing...seriously. It was such a huge part of my adolescence and most of my old and new friends I have met at the golf course! ... See MoreSee Less

Thanks to this club, I am enjoying meeting new golfing ladies! Not many of my friends play, so I am grateful to be able to get out and play with other like-minded ladies in Halifax. Plus I am not wasting my time getting a group together.
