Golf Practice - 5 Places To Practice Your Golf Game Away From The Course

When most people think of golf practice, they automatically shift their focus to the practice area usually referred to as the driving range at a golf facility. When in actuality, there are many options to practice without going to a golf course or standalone practice facility. Here are five places that you can sharpen your skills that does not require being at a golf course…

Outside your House 
Improving your golf game was popular even before Bubba Watson started creating golf courses around his house while he was growing up. Depending on the size of your property, you may be able to create short fun holes around your house. Of course you will want to take into account your current skill level and where windows are located as you design you masterpiece. The great part about this is that it allows you to use your imagination not only developing the golf course but while playing it as well.

Inside your House 
Checking the heights of your ceilings will determine what you are actually able to do with your full swing with a golf club inside your house. If you have room, it is a great place to use mirrors and check positions and match them with what you see in your minds eye and contrast that to what you are actually feeling.
Many golfers have putting greens or putting mats in side of their house. You can buy a putting mat that is very inexpensive or you can really spend as much as you want to spend depending on the experience that you want to have. The fastest way to lower your scores is to improve your putting stroke. By purchasing even a low end putting mat, you can work on putting mechanics and not have to drive to the golf course.

At Work 
Of course this will depend on what you do for a living. If you have your own office you can install a putting green in your office or use a roll up putting mat to give you extra golf practice time during your lunch break or to clear your head in the middle of the afternoon. It is understandable if this is not feasible for you. However, doing some golf fitness stretches may be another idea that you could use to improve your game away from the course.

In the Car 
As many of us sit in heavy traffic during the long daily commute to our job, there are different options to listen to than just the local radio or sports talk show. You can listen to tapes and/or CDs as you make your commute. With newer technology, you can select one of many golf podcasts that are available. Most are free and you will want o use the same criteria when selecting a good podcast as you would to find a golf instructor.

At the Gym 
The gym is a great place to work on your golf game. Many gyms offer classes for various forms of yoga and similar classes that will help you with your flexibility as well as your core strength. As you look for golf exercises or a personal golf trainer, these are the two facets that you will want to work on and address in your fitness plan.
