Having joined Pleasington Golf course recently I have had the chance to get my very first golf handicap. And, today it came through and I am playing off 17!
We decided to head back to Center Parcs just north of the Lake District this year, as we enjoyed out short break there last year.
We got up to a lot including a few walks, football for James, lots of swimming and back to see the birds of prey.
As readers of this blog will know, over the last few months I have been playing a lot more golf. I have been trying a number of courses in my local area to get a sense of which is best. Having played a few I have made a decision and finally joined a golf club in order to inspire me to play more and improve my game.
My old pair of golf shoes where Dunlop Biom 100 and they have served me reasonably well considering they were only £24.99. If they have done 40 rounds of 18 holes I think that would be conservative. However, they have had their day now with cuts to the side and leaking water.
After having my first golf lessons and they going out of the course for a number of rounds, it was inevitable that there would be one area (more than others) that I was going to need help with. That area is without doubt off the tee with the driver. Therefore I have set about trying to be more consistent, and this is what I am doing.
Being a WordPress developer and owner of a WordPress development agency, most of the speaking events I have done have been entirely WordPress related. However tonight I presented a talk about how to write a website specification at Digital People in Peterborough.
We have been to Cala Bona a few times in the last few years and we love it so much that we decided to have a late summer retreat back to the same place.
Last year I attended the Women’s British Open here and had a great time. Therefore we I found out that more professional golf was being played this year I wanted to come along.
We were really lucky with the weather as the day we attended (Thursday – day 1) the weather was fabulous sunshine and warm.
I have recently took up golf – again. Having played a lot when I was younger, and having played a little here and there, I have recently re-found my love for the game.
As a result of this I have been putting in a lot of effort into getting better and better, cumulating in me have some golf lessons (more on that later). As part of this one thing I did notice all the pros have a little book in their back pocket – the yardage book.
I have played golf for some time but recently got back playing more regularly. I decided that I would try out some lessons, something which I have never done.
In this post I will outline what I learned and why is it probably a really good idea for you to have some lessons, if you want to improve your golf game.
