Top Tips For New Golfers

August is National Golf Month, which means it’s the perfect time to brush up on your skills and get into the swing of things before golf season in Arizona begins to heat up. For those who are looking to get into the sport, there’s no better time than now to begin learning the basics. Here are a few tips for new golfers to keep in mind.

Get Fitted
Before hitting the green, one of the best decisions a new golfer can make is getting fitted for clubs. New golfers will often grab whatever clubs they can find and get started right away. While it’s great to show enthusiasm, golfers playing with incorrect clubs can damage their foundational skills and develop bad habits. Getting fitted for clubs will ensure new golfers get a strong start and are set up for success. To learn more about getting fitted for clubs, talk to one of the golf pros at our private, golf course community. They’ll guide you through the process and recommend club options.

Take Lessons
For novice golfers, the time and money put into lessons are always worth the outcome. Beginner lessons generally take golfers through the fundamentals of golf. This includes how to grip the clubs, proper posture, correct ball placement and how to get in position for a great swing.

Lessons from a golf pro will get beginners on the right track and are key if golfers want to reach their full potential. Seasoned golfers can also benefit from lessons. The golf pros at Superstition Mountain offer golf instruction for players of all ages and abilities.

Start Small
When it’s time to hit the course, start small. It’s easy for eager, young golfers to want to get into the longer and more challenging courses right away; however, starting with the basics will allow golfers to focus on their fundamentals. Executive courses are a great place for new golfers to start due to their shorter length. Generally, executive courses are part of larger courses and are designed for beginners or those who are looking for a shorter game.

The Pyrite Course at Superstition Mountain Golf and Country Club is a fantastic executive course option for beginners. Created within the Nicklaus Design Lost Gold Course, Pyrite offers golfers the chance to play an 18-hole course without facing a longer and more difficult course. Once players are ready for more, Superstition Mountain’s two Nicklaus Design golf courses offer an outstanding 36 holes of play.
