Spring is right around the corner, and as the grass greens it will be time to again get out on the golf course. If you have never played golf then maybe it’s time try it. It’s a terrific sport that promotes moderate exercise and time in the outdoors. When you visit the Bozeman area, and decide to try golf on any of the courses here in the Gallatin Valley, there are a few tips and tricks to keep in mind before you swing the club for the first time.
It’s best to start on a practice range. Of course, there are exceptions, but it’s always a good idea to go out and practice gripping the club, swinging, striking the ball, etc., before you head out onto the course. That doesn’t mean that you can’t learn to play on the course, but it’s always easier to get those first few swings out of the way and to have some sense of how the game works before you play it.
Golf is a terrific couples sport. If you and your spouse or significant other hope to try something together when you come to Bozeman, then golf might be just the thing. It might even be a good idea to learn the sport together; all golf pro shops have pros employed who can teach you the basics of the swing. They can also teach you the rules and proper course etiquette, which will undoubtedly come in handy if you ever play the course with people more experienced.
And the number one tip to learning golf is to have fun. Bad shots are part of the game, and it’s important, especially in the beginning, to focus on the good ones.
