Keeping Golf Focused During the Winter

As I am sitting here looking outside my window, writing and sipping my coffee, I realize that I don’t live in a place that’s appropriate for being an avid golfer. While it’s probably around 5 degrees outside, it actually feels like it’s -10 (awesome, I know). I long for the days of sun and heat, as I dream of playing outside with the kids or hitting the golf course for nine holes.

How I Let My Love of Golf Get Overshadowed

They say that you should never regret the decisions you make in life. That’s easier said than done, especially when you are a teenager and think you know what it takes to rule the world at 18. I have not regretted the college I choose or that I decided to move back home and raise a family in the town I grew up in.  However, there is one choice I made that still pangs me to this day, and that was not pursuing golf in my high school and college years.

The History of Women and Golf – A Look Back

By |2024-02-18T20:19:49-05:00October 5th, 2016|Beyond The Green, Guest Posts, History|

Golf has been a game that has been played and loved by many for generations. Its history is enriched with great stories, triumphs and perseverance. But the history of women and golf never seems to get the full attention it deserves.

  To this day, golf still brings us new victories that we will always remember, ... like the 2016 US Ryder Cup Team "taking back the cup" with the crowd fully engaged, or Danny Willett winning the Masters and the "green jacket" for the first time. Now it's the women's turn!

Why Golf Shoes Matter - These Shoes Were MADE for Golfing! For someone who likes shoes, but loves golf more, I can tell you that finding the right pair of golf shoes is essential for both men and women golfers alike. I have a minor fondness with shoes, but not to the extent that other women have. While I like to splurge a little bit on a nice pair here and there, I have never shelled out a lot of money on most of the shoes in my collection. For me, shoes have to function as part of an outfit and not as something that the whole outfit is mirrored around.

Why We Should Teach Our Daughters to Golf – Mothers Daughters and Golf

By |2016-11-19T09:43:20-05:00August 17th, 2016|Beyond The Green, Guest Posts|

Mothers, Daughters and Golf When my husband and I play a round of golf together we often talk about how we look forward to sharing this game with our children someday. We are blessed to have one boy and one girl, so it will be exciting to see which one (or both) pick up the game. While I think it's easier to assume that my son may be more inclined to play golf, I also hope my daughter shows a strong interest in the game, especially at an early age.
