You love to get together with friends or business associates and play a game of golf, but did you know that it has many beneficial health benefits as well. All sports provide many physical fitness opportunities, but golf is a low impact sport which makes it ideal for players of all ages. Because it causes little stress or damage to the joints and muscles, you can play golf into your senior years.
When you play a round of golf, you are walking which offers many heart health benefits by improving cholesterol levels, blood pressure, and maintaining a healthy weight. Did you know golf is 90% mental exercise? Besides the physical benefits, golf provides a great opportunity to exercise your brain.
It is also a very social sport which is especially important as we age. By making new friends on the golf course, it also helps to ease stress and anxiety and combat depression. Hideaway Golf is the best place to take advantage of all this in the fresh Pennsylvania air.
Whether you are a novice or seasoned golfer, there is always room for improvement. If you have watched your fair share of golf tournaments, you know that even professional golfers get better as they perfect their skills. At our Poconos golf course, we suggest playing at least once a week to strengthen your overall golf game.
Many of our golfers want to know how to improve their swing. There are countless tips on this common theme. First and foremost, take your time between the transition from backswing to forward swing. Relax your grip because when your grasp is too tight, you lose power. You should also have a target in sight as this will help you achieve the goal at hand.
This may sound obvious, but keep your eye on the club as it hits the ball. When you are putting, be completely still because it is all about control and being precise. Remember to fully finish your swing from backswing to downswing. Most importantly, get out there with your friends and enjoy this globally loved game.
It’s our opinion that there is no better sport than golf, but we may be a bit biased. We understand that starting out can feel intimidating. First, we always tell beginners there is no need to go out and buy expensive gear. Purchase golf gear that is affordable and will allow you to practice and learn the basics. Buying second hand clubs is also a great option if you are still uncertain about your commitment to the game.
Also, you do not need a full bag of clubs. We suggest simply buying a driver, a putter and a sand wedge to start. You can build on those with a 6-iron, 8-iron, pitching wedge and fairway. Generally, it is good to look for golf clubs geared towards beginners. We carry a large selection of golf gear suitable for all levels of play in our pro shop. We are happy to help you get started.
If you have never played golf before, you are probably wondering what accessories are essential to the game before you head out to your local golf shop. You may have purchased your clubs near me, but there are so many other items you need. Let’s start with a great pair of gloves whether you like to wear them always or just when you get caught in the rain to maintain a good grip. In order to keep the golf scorecard accurate, we strongly recommend purchasing a golf rangefinder. Repair pitch marks on the green before you putt with a divot repair tool.
As we said earlier, Poconos golf means you will be doing a lot of walking. When you are browsing for items in golf stores, make sure to try on as many shoes as possible to select the one that will give you the most support and comfort. Don’t forget a good pair of insoles for much needed relief after hours on the course. Carrying your own golf bag? We can not stress enough how important it is to purchase a good double strap that will distribute the weight on your back evenly. Lastly, always remember to wear your golf hat, a pair of sunglasses, a golf towel, and a large water bottle to stay hydrated.
Like learning a new language, the sport of golf has its own lexicon. Before your first game, brush up on some of the terminology you will be hearing on the golf course. We can not possibly go over all of them here, but we will do our best to share the most widely used words and their meanings.
Must know golf terminology for beginning golfers:
Birdie – Completing the hole in one less stroke than the par.
Bogey – Completing the hole in one more stroke than the par.
Double Bogey – Completing the hole in two more strokes than the par.
Fore – Sort of like yelling “heads up” in gym class, this word alerts other golfers a badly hit ball is heading their way.
Hole-in-One – When it only takes you one shot to get the golf ball in the hole. In other words, a golfer’s dream.
Mulligan – A golfer’s lucky chance to hit the ball again.
Lie – No, we are not talking about you telling tales of your golf game. This word is used on the course to describe where the ball has rested. A “good lie” on the short grass or a “bad lie” on the deep grass.
Three-Putt – This is said when it takes you three putts to get your golf ball in the hole.
We could keep going on, but let’s leave it at that for now as not to overwhelm you. In any case, have fun using these popular golfing terms next time you are on the green.
