Any Tips For Someone Golfing For Their First Time?
The Coronavirus has made this year strange and difficult in some aspects but life is what you make of it. And as I drive down North Avenue after spending time at work each day I notice dozens of people enjoying themselves on the Lincoln Park golf course. It seems like everyone is always enjoying themselves and I think I'm going to try to play golf for my first time.
Okay, I "played" one round before but I was 21 and it was all about drinking beer on the course. I don't even think we ended up finishing the round, but I'm going to actually see if I enjoy the sport soon.
My brother in law is going to be visiting in the next few weeks and he has been playing his whole life and asked me if I wanted to try it out. I'm always willing to try something new and I know we have nice courses here in Grand Junction so why not give it a try?
The problem I see already is that I get frustrated when I don't do well. I'm the youngest of five kids so I am competitive in everything I do, which is going to be tough when attempting a sport for essentially the first time.
That's why I am asking you if you have any tips or tricks for a first-time golfer? I'm preparing for a day of frustration, but looking forward to it at the same time. Do you think anyone would mind if I try to hit the ball like Happy Gilmore?
In all seriousness, I was told that Adobe Creek is a great course to play with beautiful views and it's not too expensive. What course would you recommend for a beginner?
