Golf Newbies, Take Note

Engage with the West Michigan Woman Community!

Golfing as business networking—we hear about this all the time. If you're not out on the links, you're missing opportunities to develop relationships, discuss business, and keep up on industry news.

Whether or not the benefits of golf as networking are as significant as claimed, why miss an opportunity to get outdoors and have some fun with friends and colleagues?

Not so sure you're ready to chip or putt in front of the boss? Get some skills at the West Michigan Woman Golf Clinic. Hosted in conjunction with our annual golf scramble, the event takes a different approach to the typical golf outing, so novice golferes, expert golfers, and everyone in between can enjoy themselves. Get together a group of four for the scramble, or take part in the two-hour clinic—both begin at 1 p.m., and the social hour/dinner will begin around 5.

If you're just getting acquainted with the game, you may wish to borrow clubs or use hand-me-downs. But when you're ready to commit to clubs of your own, consider these tips for purchasing your first set.

Work on your strength and flexibility to ward off injuries, and get a few extra yards on your drive with exercises specifically designed to get your body ready for golf.

And of course, you need the right attire. We're not just talking about looking cute. (Although that's important!). We're talking about making sure you can bend, crouch, and swing without clothing constricting your movement, giving others a view of your lady parts, or breaking the code (sometimes specifically posted, sometimes just understood) that one does not dress casually for a round of golf. While your yoga pants and tank top might allow full range of movement, you're breaking the golf code. If you've not been out on a course before, check out these tips for keeping it classy.

We hope to see you May 13 at Boulder Creek Golf Club for the clinic and scramble! Click here for more information.
