Why Fall is a Great Time to Work on Your Golf Game

Fall is the perfect time to work on your golf game. Here’s our top 3 reasons why:

1) Most of the big tournaments have been played, the pressure of competitive golf is winding down. Making changes to your game won’t negatively affect how you play in these important events.

2) If you can work out some of your main golf issues in the fall, you’ll be more confident walking onto the course in the Spring. We all know how important the mental aspect of golf is.

3) The level of your golf game has been established over the summer, so you have a really good idea of what facets of your game needs work. Focus on those areas and create good habits for Spring.

We have a full golf practice facility to work on your entire game! Hope to see you soon, keep swinging!

10 Reasons to Get Your Kids Involved in Golf

Play a sport with your children - Golf - Silver Tee Golf CentreAre you considering involving your children in golf, or perhaps recommitting you and child’s interest in the sport?

The below is excerpt taken from an excellent editorial written by Andrew Wood. Please take the time to read the full article here where he discusses the lifelong friendships and tremendous advantages the sport of golf has provided him.

Please feel free to share this article with anyone interested you may know.

  1. Anyone Can Play: Golfers come in all shapes and sizes. You don’t have to be particularly strong, tall, lean or fast to succeed. Golf champions come in every shape and size imaginable. It’s never too early to start, and unlike most other sports, you can enjoy golf your entire life!
  1. Minimal Risk: Unlike many other popular sports like baseball, soccer and football, the chances of injury, especially serious injury, are almost nonexistent; golf is a noncontact sport.
  1. Safe and Positive Environment: The golf course is a safe place and facilitates mentoring relationships.
  1. Lifelong Friendships: You never know who you will meet on a golf course, but it’s one of the easiest places in the world to make friends. Success breeds success, and people who play golf are by in large more successful than the average bear. Those are the people you want your kids hanging out with! Best of all, golf creates a unique bond so those friendships can be developed all over the world and last a lifetime!
  1. Prepare for Business: It’s hard to think about it now, but kids grow up and the people they meet as children can play a huge part in their success later in life. Golf is a sport that helps prepare kids and teens for careers in business and other professional arenas. Even at 12 I was learning about real-life business every day from all the adults I played with.
  1. Time Spent Outdoors: In today’s world of video games, smart phones and child obesity, it can be hard to drag your son or daughter off the couch. Golf is the perfect excuse to spend an entire day enjoying nature and presents the opportunity to develop healthy, lifelong exercise habits!
  1. Important Life Lessons: Golf closely parallels real life as one experiences the highs and lows of the game. The range of experience, from birdies to bogeys, rewards a young person’s ability to keep each shot in perspective, manage one’s emotions, maintain a positive outlook and focus on the shot at hand. Golf is a sport that will teach your child integrity, discipline and respect. As they learn to conduct themselves on the golf course, these lessons will translate directly into everyday life. (See http://traitsofchampions.com)
  1. College Scholarships: Avid golfers have a lot of opportunities when it comes to college funding. The earlier your child starts, the greater his or her chance is of gaining access to scholarship money.
  1. Spend Time with Family: Golf is a game that encourages family participation. When children are young, they enjoy doing just about anything with you (but it doesn’t long last, so start now). Golf is an opportunity for quality bonding time, and it’s one that can last a lifetime.
  1. It’s FUN: This should probably be at the top of the list. One of the best reasons to get your son or daughter involved with golf is that they’ll have an absolute blast. They’ll have the chance to learn new skills, both physical and mental, make new friends and discover new opportunities.

If you’re ready to get your kids involved in golf, we have upcoming junior (and adult!) golf clinics starting soon. Please click here for more information.

After a 10 minute warm-up, they played nine holes on the challenging Panther Lake course.

They mentioned that it felt great to feel their golf swing again, and playing indoors they became more excited for the upcoming golf season.

Thanks ladies, for choosing Silver Tee! Good luck to you all!
