Beginning Ladies Golf Instruction | Beginning Ladies Golf Lessons

If you are just starting to play golf…great! Even if you have enrolled in some beginning ladies golf instruction or lessons, there are a few things that I get asked about often that may not be covered. Many clinics do not cover topics such as how to make tee times, dress codes and tipping at the golf course.

A tee time is also known as a starting reservation. By definition, it is the time that you will go off the designated first tee. It is a lot like a dinner reservation. How tee times are vary from course to course. The vast majority of the time you can call the golf shop and they will happy to assist you in making a starting time. There may be a window of how far out you may book a tee time. For example you may only be able to book a starting reservation seven days in advance. This will depend on the courses policies.

Some courses and clubs offer online tee times. You access their website through a browser and make your time online. Lastly some country clubs have a lottery for tee times. You call in or log in and request the time that you would like to play and then at the time of the “lottery” you are placed in a time depending on how the lottery is determined.

Once you have a scheduled tee time, you are responsible for arriving at the course at a time which allows you to visit the golf shop to pay your proper fees, warm up on the practice tee and practice putting green as well as eat in the restaurant or snack bar if needed and still be on the tee by the designated time. Clubs and courses vary on how far in advance you are able to make a starting time. Call the club or course to find out what their rules are. Understand, if a tee time is missed you may be charged a “no-show” fee. Again, this will vary from golf course to golf course.

Like tee times, dress codes vary from facility to facility. Believe it or not, this topic runs an entire gamut of what is acceptable. If you are unsure of what you will be able to wear, then you can always call the club or course and simply ask the question. The facility wants you to check in advance if you are not sure as confronting you after you arrive is not comfortable for you or the professional staff. I have found it to be a pretty safe rule that for your ladies golf shirt that you should at least have either a collar or sleeves. Having both a collar and sleeves is always acceptable and having neither is typically not. Again, check with the facility to be sure.

Most facilities allow tipping; however there are some private country clubs that do not allow it. I am sure you are wondering “What is a proper tip?” A typical tip would be $1 or $2 per bag upon arrival as well as when leaving if you get assistance with carrying it loading it as well as having your clubs cleaned.

Are You Taking Putting Lessons?

For some reason students seem reluctant to take putting lessons. I do not quite understand this as improving your putting is the fastest way to lower your scores.

I think that students do not want to take putting lessons for a couple of reasons…
Doing work on the range trying to hit the ball far and straight feels and sounds sexier and more fun than improving your putting with a putting drill. Many players like to compare themselves by how far they can hit not only the driver but also their irons. I always preferred to have the lowest score at the end of the round and collect my winnings. I figured that was impressive enough!People in general do not like to do things that they are not good at. I am guilty of this myself with my putting. Why go and get frustrated on the practice putting green when I can go to the driving range to hit good shots that I know that I can hit? Many times ego gets in the way.Another reason is one that actually does not fall on the student but the instructor.…

Putting Drills - Are They All Good?

Many golfers want putting drills to help them improve their stroke and get the ball in the hole faster. Many golfers will hear that a friend used a golf putting drill that helped them and make the mistake that the same drill will help them too. Here are a few reasons why it does not work that way and what you should be looking for to find the best putting drills to improve your game.

Learning Styles
There are three major learning styles auditory, feel and visual. Auditory would be that the way that you best consume information is hearing it. For example, an instructor can simply tell you to do something different, you hear it and you can do it. Learning through feel you have to be able to feel the new movement before you can begin to learn it. Most golfers are visual and like to be shown something and then try to repeat it. One is not better than another, it is simply that we are build or wired differently. The putting lesson your friend may have received was for a visual learner. How…

Junior Golf Lessons

It does not a rocket scientist to figure out the future of golf lies within growing junior golf. Depending on the age of your child and goals of your child, junior golf lessons can take many forms. Here is a short list of the options that are out there for your child to learn and enjoy the game of golf.

Private Junior Golf Lesson 
This is the traditional way to learn the game. A professional takes your child and teaches them one on one the fundamentals of the game. Although the child, if interested, can learn very quickly in the format, it is the most expensive way to learn how to play the game.

Junior Golf Camp 
Many kids are introduced to the game through a summer junior camp. Depending on the size of the camp, the kids are broken up in to groups typically by age although some camps divide students via skill level. It seems that students have to choose which sport they are going to play at a younger and younger age. With this being said, many camps are full of younger children so you wi…
