Are you ready to play well?

Golf can be a very rewarding and enjoyable activity if you let it.  It gets you outside in the fresh air and sunshine with plenty of low impact exercise.  By golfing you are improving your strength, balance, and flexibility. We play it on a beautiful course (thanks to Josh and crew) with lush fairways, manicured greens, and picturesque scenery.

Golf has a lot to offer and is a big contributor to our quality of life, but due to its inherent difficulty it can be frustrating at times. When our game falters and the “unlucky breaks” come one after another it’s enough to rile even the most complacent player. When this happens, we are challenged to put things in perspective. Keep in mind that none of us are relying on our golf skills to put food on the table or pay our bills.  We are electing to spend our valuable and finite leisure time playing golf. Having the right mindset can make a four hour round a pleasant and enjoyable experience instead of one of anguish and misery. If you are able to pull this off, your playing partners will get more enjoyment out of their round too.
