Mark Twain famously said that golf is “a good walk spoiled”. Golf is definitely not for everyone, but although some may not enjoy it, it can be a lot of fun. Plus, if you’re looking for a sport that doesn’t necessarily require a lot of athleticism, golf is a great one to get into. It’s an activity that a lot of dads take up, especially as they get older, perhaps because it’s a good way to either spend time with friends or to get a bit of peace and quiet. If you’re curious about golf and you want to know how to make the best of the game, take a look at these tips.

Get the Look

It might not be essential to look the part when you’re playing golf, but it can definitely make you feel good. Not only do you need to wear clothes and shoes that are practical for the game, but many golf clubs and country clubs have dress codes that you need to follow. Choosing some new golf clothing can help you to feel comfortable and confident while you play, and help you to make sure you’re meeting any dress regulations that might be in place. You might go for a more athletic look or maybe you’ll want to go for a more traditional golfer look.

Find Your Golf Friends

Some solo time at the driving range can be great practice for your game, but in the end, it’s more fun to play golf if you’re competing with others. Some people are hesitant to play golf because they don’t have anyone to do it with. But finding the right people to enjoy a round with can make your experience a lot more enjoyable. You might have friends who you can convince to play with you or perhaps coworkers who might want to join in. You can even use an app to find people to play with. Apps like Tee Up or Deemples are designed to help you find golfing partners.

Keeping Your Temper

Golf is meant to be relaxing. Some would even go so far as to say it’s boring. And yet the sport can get your blood boiling if things aren’t going your way. However, there’s nothing that can ruin a round more than getting frustrated and mad – especially if it leads to a tantrum. Knowing some methods for keeping your cool, whether it’s reminding yourself that it’s just a game or taking deep breaths, can help to keep your time on the course enjoyable.

Work on Your Skills

You can enjoy a sport without being good at it, but having a few skills can certainly make it more enjoyable. Working on improving your game can really help you to enjoy golf more, especially if it starts to help you beat those that you’re playing against. Whether you practice putting at home or put in some time at the driving range to build your skills, it can make golf more fun when you’re playing well.

Golf can be an exciting and enjoyable sport if you do it right. If you’re curious about trying it or you already play, you can make it more fun with the advice above.
