9 Ways to Celebrate National Golf Month

August is National Golf Month! Whether you hit the green with your coworkers or practice your short game in your backyard, there’s plenty of ways to improve your skills and celebrate the sport many of us know and love. 

Here are 9 ways to celebrate this month:

1. Hit the Range

Hit the range during your lunch break or a casual afternoon with some coworkers and/or friends. Not only is it a great stress reliever, but it’s a good way to perfect your swing before taking on the course. 

2. Take a Lesson

Many golf courses across New York State offer lessons no matter your skill level. Not only can you improve your skills, but it’s also a great way to meet new people. Online videos and mobile apps are also great alternatives.

3. Register for a Local Charity Tournament

Charity golf tournaments happen all summer long throughout New York State and no matter the cause, playing a sport loved by so many is a great way to give back. 

4. Plan a Trip 

Weekend summer trips are fun ways to relax and enjoy some down time with family and friends. There are so many opportunities within New York State and these could easily include a pit stop at a golf course or camping at a site that has its own. 

5. Invest in a Golf Cart

It’s all about your needs. For an avid golfer, investing in a cart can save you money. However, for someone who simply goes golfing a few times a season, this may not be for you. It’s also important to consider how purchasing a golf cart may impact your insurance. 

6. Go Mini-Golfing

Practice your short game shots by mini-golfing! Putt-Putt is a fun activity for an afternoon with friends and family of all ages.

7. Maintain Your Equipment

Regularly maintaining your golf equipment will lengthen the life cycle and ultimately save you money.  This includes golf cart maintenance, regripping clubs, and decluttering your golf bag.

8. Complete a Par-3 Course

Another way to improve your short game is through Par-3 courses. Grab a couple clubs and hit the course after work hours to practice putting and chipping. 

9. Create Your Own Backyard Green

Don’t want to plan a trip to the course? DIY your very own backyard green and practice at home! Choosing a location is important; you want to ensure you aren’t too close to the road or in an area that regularly floods as you will have to upkeep your lawn regularly. 

The summer months are the perfect time to get outside and play. Enjoy the weather, and happy golfing!
