PUBLISHER’S LETTER

Don’t worry, be happy T

by Rick Surlow

“This is a game of misses. The guy who misses the best is going to win.” - Ben Hogan

hese famous words from the popular song by Bobby McFerrin should apply to all of us, especially while we’re out playing golf. Did you know that the pros miss shots all the time? Probably a lot more often than we all realize in fact. Think about it, whenever they’re within range of the green and their shot doesn’t find the bottom of the hole, it’s technically a miss. But keep in mind these wise words from Ben Hogan, “This is a game of misses. The guy who misses the best is going to win.” I think about that perspective often, every time I play a round in fact. However, I don’t let this notion consume me. In many facets of life, I don’t hit my target every time. Rather than being consumed by my golfing failures, I recognize that I can’t change what’s already happened, and I don’t dwell on my poor shots, but instead move on to the next opportunity to take another hack. Thankfully most golf courses have more than one hole, otherwise the bad shots might stay with me a bit longer. Speaking of being happy, does anything bring you more joy than playing golf with friends and loved ones? I’m constantly reminded of how special the game of golf is when I get to spend 4 hours with my son, playing a game we both love, whilst walking around what’s basically a fantastically maintained park together. The two of us don’t live in the same town any more, nor have we for quite some time, but in what other sport would I get to have my favorite people with me for hours on end without the distractions of technology, work and everything else that consumes us from day to day? ‘Happy’ truly is the only feeling I find myself continuously experiencing on the golf course, and I hope you all feel the same this golf season.

Happy hitting,

C

alifornia’s Gold Country never looks more green than it does at Apple Mountain Golf Resort, where towering pine, cedar and madrone trees frame one of the pictureprettiest courses you’ll ever come across. The grandness of the Sierra Nevada is evident at every turn of this 6,308-yard, par-70 beauty designed by Algie Pulley. Perched low in the Sierra range off Highway 50 in the mountain town of Camino, Apple Mountain is neither snowbound nor heat-baked, but instead offers consistently gorgeous weather to complement its high level of playability. You’ll find plenty of shot-making challenges on holes playfully named after Gold Country icons such as “Ante Up,” “Mother Lode” and “Whisky Bowl.” Apple Mountain’s practice facilities are also top-notch, featuring a 300+ yard driving range and 12,000 square feet of greens that allow you to pitch, putt, chip and breathe as deep as you please of the mountain air. Golf at Apple Mountain is said to be similar to playing in Truckee or Tahoe, but an hour closer, $100 cheaper and playable year-round. COURSE STATISTICS TEES

S

ince 1970, golfers have been fortunate to enjoy the game in a particularly scenic part of a beautiful city at Bennett Valley Golf Course in Santa Rosa. This tree-lined municipal course, just minutes from downtown, is surrounded by mountains carpeted with oaks, redwoods, and Monterey pines. Matanzas Creek meanders through four holes, and with no houses lining most of the course, it’s just you and your game, which is aided mightily by solid course conditions. A pleasant mix of long and short holes is abundant along Ben Harmon’s 6,548-yard, par72 layout. In the early 2000s, every green was upgraded and enlarged to accompany the improved greenside bunkering. A new clubhouse and pro shop opened in 2007, serving as one of the cozier 19th holes in the North Bay. If your outdoor pursuits extend beyond golf, nearby Annadel State Park has long been a mecca for mountain bikers, equestrians, hikers and trail runners. After 45 years of operation, Bennett Valley continues to provide golfers with great golf and one of the best returns on green fee investment in California.

SACRAMENTO

Cherry Island Golf Course 2360 Elverta Road, Elverta CA | 916.991.6875 | GolfCherryIsland.com

I

mpeccable conditions, a quiet rural vibe, modest fees and a target-style design by the renowned Robert Muir Graves make Cherry Island Golf Course one of those “whole package” venues that first-timers vow to return to and veterans are glad that they do. Just 20 minutes north of downtown Sacramento, golfers across the Central Valley rave about the fast, true and astonishingly well-maintained greens that characterize every one of Cherry Island’s 18 holes. Stretching just under 6,600 yards from the championship tees, Cherry Island is fair to golfers of every ability level under Sacramento’s wide and welcoming skies. Since its 1990 debut, the course’s surroundings have matured beautifully, with the added benefit of being free of homes and other man-made structures that dare distract players from their round of golf. Owned by Sacramento County and managed by Empire Golf, Cherry Island tops out at $37 on weekends and can go as low as $12 on weekdays. It makes for a remarkable value quotient at this charming oasis of the inland valley.

N

There are no homes or streets slicing through the course— just modestly priced public golf in a setting of stirring, immodest beauty.

o one who travels the highways and byways of the Santa Cruz coast soon forgets its magnificent ocean vistas and vast carpets of redwood and pine trees. If you’re lucky enough to spend part of your day on the fairways of DeLaveaga Golf Course, you’ll just enhance the memory of this extraordinary slice of the world. Several of the 18 holes provide views of the Pacific, which churns just over three miles away. Carved into the canyons of an 800-acre park that was gifted to the City of Santa Cruz in the early 1900s, DeLaveaga was built in 1970 as a par-70 shotmaker’s paradise. Architect Bert Stamps created narrow landing areas and small, challenging greens to test players of every skill level. Despite its short length (just over 6,100 yards), strong iron play and a sharp mental game are requirements to post a good number here. It helps that there are no homes or streets slicing through the course— just modestly priced public golf in a setting of stirring, immodest beauty.

CENTRAL VALLEY

Diablo Grande Golf & Country Club 9521 Morton Davis Drive, Patterson CA | 209.892.GOLF | GolfDiabloGrande.com

O

pened in 1996, the Ranch Course was the first of two sterling Diablo Grande courses to come on line in the spacious setting of Patterson, at the northern tip of the Central Valley. Designed by highly regarded architect Denis Griffiths, “The Ranch” capitalizes on its rolling terrain, a natural creek, and abundant other water features to make each round an exercise in graceful, ever-challenging golf. The 7,243-yard, par-72 layout (four other tee placements go down to 5,112 yards) requires some hefty driving, most dramatically on the 649-yard signature 12th hole that will ask for everything you have and pay off handsomely if you can give it. Diablo Grande’s maintenance is managed by Troon, which ensures that every guest enjoys the superb course conditions that are synonymous with Troon courses. Modest rates include cart and range balls. Dramatic elevation changes, abundant oak trees and surrounding vineyards add spice and visual variety to this course, which has earned spots on “Top Northern California Courses” lists in Golf Today, among other honors.

DEATH VALLEY

The Furnace Creek GC at Death Valley Highway 190, Death Valley CA | 760.786.3373 | Furnacecreekresort.com

A

s the world’s lowest golf course, Furnace Creek has long been a “bucket list” item for golfers seeking a challenge they won’t find anywhere else. Furnace Creek provides golfers with a unique and unforgettable golfing experience that will make playing at sea level seem like an ocean breeze. Golfers find themselves needing to add one or two clubs to their shots to account for each of the 214 feet that Furnace Creek’s golf course sits below sea level. When Perry Dye updated the course in 1997, well aware that the elevation would cause the course to play several hundred yards longer than its true distance, he designed a track that challenges good players with a diverse mix of long and short holes from the back tees, while remaining fair and fun for those just picking up the game. Despite its locale, Furnace Creek isn’t a ‘desert’ golf course, instead playing as a parkland design surrounded by lush trees and dramatic mountains in all directions. Add a historic fourdiamond Inn and a natural spring-fed swimming pool, and it’s no wonder that golfers have been making annual trips to this “true American oasis” for over eight decades.

tunning surroundings and luxurious facilities on a well conceived country-style course at the base of the Sierra Nevada Mountains—it’s little wonder the Lakes Course has USA Today proclaiming it among the “Top Ten Courses to Die For.” But Genoa’s Lakes Course promises to radically enhance your living instead, thanks, among many other things, to the stirring natural landscape upon which PGA Champion Peter Jacobsen and John Harbottle III have designed an utterly engaging test of your golfing skills. The Lakes Course, along with its sister Ranch Course just down the road, enjoys semi-private status in its high desert wonderland. The Lakes Course boasts rolling fairways and lush wetlands, courtesy of the nearby Carson River. Water comes into play on 14 holes, meaning long straight driving will serve you well. Just 15 minutes from Carson City and 30 minutes to Tahoe, the Lakes course gives its guests a feeling of total seclusion and privacy along with a test of golfing you’ll find nowhere else.

Gear Garage Editor’s summer equipment picks By Kyle Surlow CALLAWAY ROGUE DRIVER With its new line of Rogue drivers, Callaway has built upon the massive success of last year’s EPIC line (the most purchased driver in 2017) by implementing the same jailbreak technology into the Rogue, but with a few modifications that are designed to increase forgiveness on balls struck outside the center of the club face, as well as a few changes to the club’s weight distribution. If you’re someone who’s still using a driver from five-plus years ago, you may be shocked at how a driver like the Rogue can be so large, yet weigh so little. The crown is made from an ultra-lightweight five-layer carbon composite material that looks like it belongs on one of The Fast & The Furious cars, which allowed Callaway’s engineers to place that extra weight into the back of the club head, which results in an increased launch angle.

THE VERDICT: It sounds a little funny coming off the clubface, but it’s really forgiving. I’m talking massively forgiving! It’s just as long as the other high-end drivers available from other equipment manufacturers, but the forgiveness is what makes the Rogue stand apart. The Rogue is as good a driver option that’s available this year. $500 | CallawayGolf.com

Gear Garage CUT GOLF BALLS

ADIDAS ADIPOWER S BOOST 3 SHOES These bad boys perform well right out of the box. In the first two days of testing, I put these shoes through 45 holes and was ever-so-pleasantly surprised that my feet weren’t sore (or wet) after each of those two days. It can be challenging to find a spikeless golf shoe that performs well in wet weather, but Adidas’ Climastorm material provides breathable, water-repellent protection to keep your feet dry.

A relatively new player in the golf ball industry, this Southern California-based ball manufacturer claims to make “The best damn golf ball under $20,” and based on our testing, they’re probably right. Cut is currently producing four different balls that range in price from $10 to $20 per dozen, and even within those price points, there’s a pretty noticeable difference between Cut’s offerings. At $15 per dozen, the White, a 3-piece surlyn ball is long off the tee, and softer around the greens than other distance balls in the same price range. The White is the Cut ball I’d recommend starting out with.

THE VERDICT: Perfectly playable for anybody with a double digit handicap. They’re obviously not on par with the ProV1’s of the world, but that’s not what they’re going for. Long off the tee and soft enough around the greens to satisfy almost any weekend warrior. $10-20 per dozen | cutgolfco.com

THE VERDICT: Lots of color options ensure you’ll find one that matches your style scheme, and they’re great for the golfer who does a lot of walking. Not to mention they look great with pants or shorts. Overall, a great spikeless golf shoe for the serious golfer. $130 | adidas.com

FOURTEEN GOLF FH FORGED V1 WEDGES Fourteen wedges have been in the bag of several major championship winners, despite the fact that they’ve never paid any of them to use their clubs, a testament to the quality of Fourteen’s equipment. The new FH-V1 series replaces their wildly successful RM-22 line of wedges, whose innovative reverse muscle design forced the hand of major club manufacturers to develop clubs with similar technology (see Titleist SM-6/7). Fourteen’s new FH Forged V1 series features a “double reverse taper blade,” in which the upper portion of the blade gets gradually thicker from heel to the toe. This supposedly creates a more efficient weight distribution, improving stability on off center hits, all while still retaining a traditional head size. According to Fourteen, their new FH Forged V1 wedges combine high spin performance with a classic head shape and design.

THE VERDICT: To be determined. These bad boys will be available for consumers and media alike at the end of April 2018 (a few weeks after this article is being written). However, we can only imagine that they’ll be excellent, as that’s been the case with every Fourteen club we’ve ever tested. Once we get our hands on a few, look for the full review on our website and on the Golf Guide Podcast. $250 | fourteengolf.com 48 | GOLFGUIDE.NET

esigned to integrate the beauty of the eastern Sierra Nevada foothills and high landscape into its layout, the Genoa Lakes Ranch Course’s 7,290-yard, par-72 championship course features breathtaking views in every direction. Rugged mountains and lush valleys offer scenes of exceptional variety from each hole. From the 618-yard, par-5 downhill 18th hole to the 188-yard, par-3 island on the 8th, Genoa Lakes — Ranch has been uniquely designed in a non-parallel format, creating a sense of solitude and serenity. The front nine meanders through desert landscape with spectacular water features. The back nine begins on the valley floor and climbs 300 feet up the eastern slope, where mule deer, rabbits, eagles and coyote abound. Four sets of tees on each hole make the course an enjoyable challenge for players of all skill levels. Combined with its sister Lakes Course across the way, the two Genoa Lakes courses offer the perfect weekend getaway that you may want to extend on one end or the other to achieve its full effect.

L

ocated in a tranquil and stunning valley not far from the urban sprawl of the San Francisco Bay, Green Valley Country Club is the everyman’s private golf club that somehow manages to retain a quintessential 1950’s country club vibe. Tree-lined holes that meander in and out of the valley’s foothills force golfers to play uphill, downhill, and side to side as they navigate the course’s small and always firm fairways and greens. Green Valley Country Club is architect Elmer G. Border’s only golf course design on record, and he knocked it out of the park, designing a course that plays incredibly fair for those just being introduced to the game while dotting trouble in the form of well-placed trees and bunkers around all 18 holes that requires accomplished players to stay vigilant should they want to post a low number. If members need a reprieve from golf, the club has remarkably fine tennis, swimming, bocce and fitness facilities to compliment its dining options and breathtaking scenery. Great golf, cool vibes and a pre-civil war mansion that doubles as a clubhouse make Green Valley Country Club a wine country golf staple worth your consideration. COURSE STATISTICS TEES

N

estled against spectacular coastal mountains that keep the fog, smog and congestion at bay, Hidden Valley Lake is a golfing oasis in lightly populated Lake County. Golfing on this William F. Bell (architect of Torrey Pines-North and Sandpiper GC) design means an unhurried pace on 18 richly varied holes, each with its admirers who claim it as the most interesting, challenging, beautiful. Fabulous, head-turning vistas on the par-72, 6,708-yard jewel include special touches like the signature 15th hole’s 250-foot drop to the fairway below. Five water hazards, four different tee placements, nearly year-round sunshine and 100-year-old oak trees lend the kind of soul-soothing character one can build a weekend around. That weekend can include stay-and play-packages at nearby Twin Pine Hotel & Casino or the adjacent Good Sam Club campground that includes R.V. hookups. Other nearby delights include wine-tasting, olive oil sampling and hot air ballooning, all of which can help make a day of golf at Hidden Valley Lake just a part of the exquisite recreational offerings in Lake County.

T

ucked away in the small California mountain town of Pioneer, Mace Meadows Golf Course has risen from the dead and is now providing golfers with a stunningly fun golf course in a beautiful alpine setting. Closed down just a few years ago due to economic troubles, Mace Meadows’ new ownership group saw the potential for a beautiful retreat in the foothills for residents of California’s coastal and central valley communities and acted. Significant work has been done to improve the golf course’s conditions and playability, and ownership has also paired the golf course with The Mountain Grille, the restaurant on property that offers gorgeous views of the course and surrounding Sierra Nevada mountains. Mace Meadows’ golf course would be defined as a parkland layout, but this track is anything but a walk in the park. While not long on the scorecard, the mix of elevation change and quirky approach shots makes it a must play. Mace Meadows will leave players not just with a lasting impression of its splendid scenery, but with fond memories of its “old but new” golf course in the marvelous Sierra foothills.

ill Valley is a tucked away, tree-enshrouded town, population 14,000, for which the word “bucolic” seems to have been coined. So it is little wonder that its municipal golf course is a largely unknown jewel, it being further tucked away—like one of the Chinese boxes-within-boxes that so delight children at holiday time—under lush canopies of coastal redwoods and the soft inviting hills of Marin County. The irony is you can get there within minutes off Highway 101, just nine miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge. The challenging 9-hole, par-33 layout has six par-4s and the rest par-3. It also contains an ingenious “short course” (par 27), for those still building their game. Built in 1919, the course was upgraded several years ago with revamped greens, a small practice facility, putting green and snack bar. Club rentals are available, and its “2 for 20” slogan (two hours to play, under 20 bucks) should leave you time and cash aplenty to enjoy the countless other pleasures of this NorCal paradise.

A

gorgeous canvas of sky, redwood and river inspired famed designer Dr. Alister MacKenzie when he laid out Northwood Golf Club in the Sonoma County hamlet of Monte Rio back in 1928. The architect of Augusta National and Cypress Point was commissioned to build the course so members of the Bohemian Grove, located across the river from the course, could have a place to play during their summer retreat. The result of Dr. MacKenzie’s efforts is a sensational, highly-walkable course where the paintinglike setting includes towering California redwoods and the Russian River as it meanders its way to the Pacific a few miles downstream. Like most MacKenzie designs, Northwood doesn’t rely on length to test its golfers, instead requiring calculated shot selections and risk-reward challenges on each and every hole. Ranked the #1 9-hole public course in America by Golf World, it’s no wonder that golfers from every corner of the country make their way to West Sonoma County to experience MacKenzie’s lone nine-hole course, which remains just as the Doctor left it.

TEMPLATE HOLE PROFILE

SHORT Many of golf’s greatest holes are varied versions of others built before them. Some golf holes have even been replicated hundreds of times, and are referred to as “Template” holes. To better understand the strategy and history of the courses we play, each issue we’ll take a look at a famous template hole that can be seen and played on the West Coast.

ORIGIN

BUNKERING

GREEN COMPLEX

The original short is the 4th hole at Royal West Norfolk Golf Club, Brancaster, England. The course was designed by Horace Hutchinson & Holcombe Ingleby in 1892.

There is no one bunkering pattern that the short template is associated with. The original short at Royal West Norfolk doesn’t have any bunkering around the green, but instead sits atop a 3-foot hill, walled in every direction by vertical railroad ties (above). To mimic this penal setup, a short usually has at least a bunker (or other hazard) directly in front of the green, which requires golfers to hit their tee shot in the air and hold the green with the spin generated from a short-iron.

The putting surface on a short template hole is typically one of the largest and most undulating green complexes on the golf course. So while the shot from the tee is short in length, it requires players to get to an exact spot on the putting surface if they want to have a reasonably makeable birdie putt.

STRATEGY Most golfers see a par-3 measuring less than 160 yards on the scorecard and assume it’s a great chance to make a birdie. The short template ensures that players must execute two exceptional golf shots for said birdie to become a reality. By putting a short iron in the golfer’s hand, which most feel very comfortable with, the course’s architect demands the player hit their tee shot to an exact spot on the putting surface in order to make two. If the golfer fails to execute that shot, making a par will prove to be a daunting challenge. Simply, the short is just that, a short but penal par3 that forces players to hit a short iron or wedge in to an undulating, larger-than-average green complex. A miss off the tee is typically one of the most penal on the golf course.

he Ridge Golf Course in Auburn puts you far enough above the Central Valley’s heat and below the cold of the Sierra to make four-season golfing a true pleasure—with a considerable assist from renowned architect Robert Trent Jones, Jr. Just a half-hour up the foothills from Sacramento, The Ridge embodies the Jones, Jr. signature of meticulously blending the golf course with its surroundings of hills, knolls, rock outcroppings and abundant trees. Forty-eight bunkers make for some tricky negotiations along the 6,749-yard, par 71 layout, but this is not a course that will have you fleeing to the clubhouse for relief. Driving range, learning center, putting greens, pro shop—it’s all here. In addition, golfers who find themselves at The Ridge can take pride knowing they are playing a course that has been tested by the best female players in the world, as The Longs Drug Challenge made The Ridge its home in both 2004 and 2005. The club’s ‘Events Center’ provides robust opportunities for postround celebrations, weddings, banquets, corporate meetings and more. With no homes surrounding the course and views abound, The Ridge is an intricate part of the NorCal golf scene. COURSE STATISTICS TEES

Multiple water features reach their zenith with the island green on No. 15, which many would argue is just a small component of the challenging and visually stunning obstacles at Rooster Run. The rolling topography afforded Bliss the chance to build a course that utilizes its exquisite setting while also allowing him the freedom to build a stimulating challenge for golfers of every skill level. Assuming they play the correct tee, Rooster Run gives all golfers the opportunity to challenge themselves without jeopardizing the enjoyment of the course and its surroundings.

A

bove the heat of the central valley, yet below the cold of the Sierra Nevadas, Saddle Creek Resort’s golf course has been winning the affection of golfers across California since its 1996 debut. The course’s creative routing, excellent conditioning and beautiful views are three of the main factors that make Saddle Creek so wonderful, but the price doesn’t hurt either. Consistently ranked as one of California’s best public courses, golfers can still play championship golf on a weekend for under $100. The bent grass greens consistently roll at an 11 on the stimpmeter, and work well with its wider-than-average fairways, catering to strong ball strikers and allowing approach shots to be made from a variety of angles. Most of the trouble is off the tee, even with very little out-of-bounds, there are several forced carries over water and trouble beyond the first cut of rough. The routing has each nine leaving the clubhouse in an “out-and-back” fashion, yet no two holes run parallel to one another. In doing so, the course’s architects take golfers on a journey to each of the most interesting pieces of Saddle Creek’s property. Golfers can enjoy views of the snow-capped Sierra Nevadas, in addition to the beautiful meadows and rolling hills that Saddle Creek’s golf course calls home. COURSE STATISTICS TEES

SAN FRANCISCO

TPC Harding Park 99 Harding Road, San Francisco CA | 415.664.4690 | TPC.com/HardingPark

T

PC Harding Park, named after avid golfer and President Warren Harding, opened in 1925 and is almost as rich in tradition as the Monterey Cypress trees that line it. Masterfully designed by architect Willie Watson of Olympic Club fame, the 163-acre course takes marvelous advantage of the existing San Francisco topography, contours and vegetation, including the adjoining Lake Merced. A frequent PGA TOUR stop in the 1960s, TPC Harding Park is once again attracting big name events, having hosted the 2005 World Golf Championship, 2009 Presidents Cup, and the 2015 WGC Match Play where the golfing world saw Rory McIlory emerge as the victor. With that kind of esteemed history behind it, Harding Park isn’t content. Looking ahead, it is scheduled to host its first major, the PGA Championship, in 2020 and the Presidents Cup will return in 2025. Harding’s 18 holes are also complemented by the “Fleming 9,” a quick in-City golf getaway. With a 4.5 Star rating from Golf Digest’s “Best Places to Play,” TPC Harding Park offers an unparalleled golfing adventure on a historic course that matches perfectly with the City it calls home.

SONOMA

Windsor Golf Club 1340 19th Hole Drive, Windsor CA | 707.838.7888 | WindsorGolf.com

C

lassic golf can be defined in many ways, but if your notion includes a landscape uncluttered by surrounding homes, with mountains in nearly every direction, under huge skies, on a course whose history includes five Nike Tour events and the LPGA Symetra Tour’s POCMed Classic, then Windsor Golf Club is the perfect example. Windsor’s 1989 debut helped transform its namesake Sonoma County town from a sleepy rural hamlet into a classy destination that includes an inviting new downtown area. An extensive fairway sanding program a few years back has now made Windsor a year-round delight, all the better to accommodate the 12-month wine tasting that golfers can pursue just outside the course’s boundaries. Although holes 2 and 7 were both consistently ranked among the “Top 10 Most Difficult” on the Nike Tour, the 6,650-yard layout is relatively forgiving. With two sets of forward tees, one of which is a “family” tee that measures 3,114 yards for 18 holes, Windsor Golf Club ensures that all of its guests enjoy a memorable golf-filled day in scenic Sonoma County.

Lesson plan

New golfers, take note: Learn how to play before you play THE LAST SH OT By Rick Vacek

I

saw the saddest thing on the golf course the other day, yet I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.

I saw a brand new golfer, with his brand new clubs, trying to hit the ball

And the rest of us started to get equally annoyed when he would do things like putt his ball right next to the cup and then leave it there, not knowing that he should either tap it in, pick it up or mark it – and he hadn’t brought a marker, of course. He didn’t know. That’s my point. He didn’t know. He didn’t know anything. He didn’t have the faintest idea what he was doing out there, from the grip to the setup to the swing to the strategy to the etiquette. He was completely clueless. You probably found this copy of Golf Guide in a place called a pro shop. If you’re new to the sport, you should note that a pro resides there. Probably a few assistant pros, too.

You should no more walk onto a golf course and just start playing than you should buy an airplane and just start flying. It won’t end well.

with a painfully tentative swing, and he was being “coached” by a friend whose swing was even worse but seemed to think that “keep your head down” was all the advice anyone ever needs. It was hard to tell who was more frustrated. For years, this has been the No. 1 challenge in spreading our great game to the masses. People think they can take a few swings at the driving range and then pound the ball straight down the fairway the first time they set foot on the course. The newbie’s frustration grew as he whiffed numerous times and shanked or dribbled or chunked shot after shot. His friend’s frustration grew even more.

Their job is to help you not just learn how to play the game, but how to enjoy it. In a few half-hour lessons, they can have you setting up properly and starting to hit the ball with some authority. And then when you go out on the course the first few times, you should play with someone who knows what they’re doing. Watch what they do. Listen and learn. You should no more walk onto a golf course and just start playing than you should buy an airplane and just start flying. It won’t end well. I can almost guarantee it. Don’t crash on the golf course before you have a chance to get your game off the ground. Learn to play the right way, right from the start. It will be a better experience for you and everyone else.
