Enjoying the game of golf often depends on your own expectations. Whether you are scoring in the 70’s and 80’s or in the 90’s or 100’s, it’s still possible to have a lot of fun and enjoy your time on the course. But one thing I think most golfers will agree with is that golf course etiquette is important on the course. Often time beginner golfers get a bad reputation for being “rude” when in reality they just did not know proper etiquette. The idea of golf course etiquette may sound overwhelming to new players, but don’t worry we are here to help!
Over the next two weeks we will be talking on this blog about proper golf course etiquette. To seasoned players golf course etiquette may seem like common sense, but remember not everyone has been playing this sport for a long time. Be patient with new players who are just learning and offer to give helpful tips and advice. Golf is a sport that should and can be enjoyed by all, but not everyone is a pro and knows all of the rules and etiquette right away. Help out those who are just learning and be patient.
For all of you beginner golfers out there, the idea of golf course etiquette may feel overwhelming and may even discourage you from the game but please do not stress or feel discouraged. Next weeks blog we will diver deeper into a ton of great tips on what is considered respectful on the course and we will help you feel like a pro!
In addition to reading the Honeybrook Golf Blog, we would love for you to join us at one of our many clinics or sign up for a private lesson with our teaching staff. These clinics and lessons will help you feel comfortable and confident on the course. I would love to specifically promote our Golf 101 clinic.
