If you have noticed a lot of new faces around your favorite golf course you are correct.
The game is booming in the Upstate and the growth is coming from players who are new golfers just starting to play the game.
The Links O Tryon has a special clinic planned for Millennials and GenZ new golfers on Saturday March 4th at 1:30PM
“We see a lot of new golfers who may have never played and they may be a little nervous about being around regular golfers,” said Links head PGA Professional Marc Brady. “We want to help them with some of the basics and offer a little information about the way to get around a golf course,” he said.
Brady along with professionals John Combs and Buddy Manson will help golfers with some of the basics of the swing and introduce them to some of the norms around the course.
Many new golfers started by hitting balls at a range or Top Golf, but that is very different then being on a golf course with other players.
“Golfers who grew up in families playing golf or have played since they were kids know how things operate at a golf course, but if you are trying to play for the first time it can be a little intimidating,” said Brady.
Knowing the order of play or making sure to rake bunkers, follow cart path instructions and fix ball marks are important parts of golf etiquette which is a big part of the game.
“Golf etiquette sounds serious, but is a way to keep things moving around the course. We can offer some tips to new golfers that will help them feel more comfortable around the course and also help them with their swing,” he said.
There is no charge for the clinic and after the session golfers can take advantage of what they learned with the special twilight rate at the Links.
Brady would appreciate golfers calling the shop at 864-468-5099 to reserve their place at the clinic.
While the clinic is mainly for younger golfers any newcomer is welcome to register and benefit from the tips Brady and the other professionals will offer.
