Off-Season Golf Tips

Tip #1: Prevent Your Swing From Hibernating

Make it a point to hit some balls at least a couple of times a month during the winter. This practice will help you to be ready for that first round of golf in the spring.

Tip #2: Evaluate Your Equipment

February is a great time to buy new equipment. All of the products for the new year are released by then and many of last year’s top items will be on sale. Visit the expert club fitters at Pelican Golf, to find your perfect fit.

Tip #3: Get Stronger

Once you learn to make solid contact with the ball on a regular basis, almost nothing can improve your game more than being stronger and more physically fit. Find a personal trainer and let them know your goal is to improve strength and flexibility to improve your golf game.

Tip #4: Read, Read, Read

Most golf books are instructional in nature and you need to be careful to not let differing opinions confuse you. Other books are just great stories that will keep you connected to the game.

Tip #5: Get Out of Dodge

Winters in the Midwest are tough on everyone but can be especially demoralizing for golfers. A golf trip will give you something to look forward to and helps break up the winter. There are tons of destinations for every budget.

"Arrowhead has the feel of a private course that is well maintained. A beautiful facility in all respects. The course is a great layout, well spaced, nice challenge. We played on Tuesday 8/6/19 and played the South / East combination. A few of the greens looked to have been recently aerated, but they all rolled nicely. Definitely recommend."
