Selecting The Best Golf Courses

Nov 26, 2007
It is easy for an amateur golfer to select which golf course is best to hone their skills because the golf course that is close to home will be used more often and serve the needs of the new golfer best. A new golfer will have to learn about the rules of golf, and might select the golf course that has a golf pro on staff so that he can learn which golf clubs to use on various shots during a golf game and which stance to use to tee off for their first game.

The golf pro is always at the golf course to help all golfers improve their golf game. The golf course where he works may be a professional course that sanctioned by the Pro Golfers Association. If so, it will undoubtedly be used as a tournament course at some time during the year and the local golfer will be sure to buy tickets to see the golfing action that occurs during those tournaments.

This type of exposure to the professional world of golf is a good way for a new golfer to select the type of golf course that they want to use to improve their game. Some courses are notably harder than others because the designers have configured them with sand holes and bits of forest that tend to block the view to the area where the flag is standing. Some golfers practice on these difficult courses more than any other because it gives them the best opportunities to hone their skills to be able to overcome those obstacles.

The avid golfers that want to go on vacation and use their free time to hit a few balls for relaxation purposes might prefer to find golf courses that have all of the amenities they need to have a good time. These golfers will be centered on improving their golf game during daylight hours, and will expect the golf course to present them with many challenging holes of golf to play so that they can improve their game.

More than 1000 golf courses throughout the United States are fashioned to be posh resorts and golfers can dine in elegant surroundings that border around some of the prettiest golf courses in the world. Golfers have access to weight rooms, saunas and massage therapists to ease tensions while they are not on the golf course. All of these amenities will require hefty fees but golfers on vacation think that improving their golf game is worth the price they pay for such indulgences.

Some golfers will select the East Coast to play golf, and follow a winding trail of golf courses throughout the South. They become accustomed to playing golf in rainy weather and enjoy the hospitality that Southerners are famous for immensely. Some golfers rely on recommendations for the best golf courses that they find listed in golfing magazines. The four-star ratings can be deceptive at times and new golfers will have to find golf courses that do not present such a challenge to their skills.
