April 10th is National Golfer’s Day, so if you need an excuse to get out of the apartment here at Peachtree Place and do something fun or try something new, golfing is a great answer! Today our blog has golfing tips so you can get out into Columbia, SC and make the most of your trip.

Come prepared.

You don’t have to empty your savings account to get started golfing, so don’t sweat it too much if you’re worried that getting the right clubs means it has to be a huge investment. If you’re new to golf, consider renting equipment or borrowing from a friend who golfs and who could lend a club that might work for you. Don’t forget the sunscreen, gloves, and a hat, too!

Warm up.

Warming up to anything always sets you in the right mind and prepares your body for the activity. This is useful for golf as well as anything else! Hitting off a few balls and playing some practice holes will help get your mind and body in the right zone to play a focused game.

Practice perfect posture.

Having great posture is not only good for you physically — it’s also important to your golfing game! Take dead aim and check your alignment every time you golf so you can get in the habit of creating an on-point hit! Create a solid stance as you do so and tilt at your hips, not at your waist, so you can have great form. Practice it every time and you’ll develop healthy habits that will also result in better swings and hits.

Stay safe.

South Carolina in the summer is really, really hot. We’re not quite there yet, but be prepared. The last thing you want to do is get caught out on a golf course without sunscreen or a water bottle. Remember to reapply sunscreen at least every two hours and drink whenever you’re thirsty. Also, dress appropriately for the weather. We recommend bringing a hat and sunglasses to wear while you’re out on the course. Take breaks between each hole and if it’s an especially hot day, consider renting a golf cart.
