Ten Reasons for Having a Home Golf Club

A home golf club offers excellent opportunities for the retired golfer, here’s why it’s good to play the same golf course again and again.

After years of playing public golf courses all around the Puget Sound area in Washington State, my husband and I retired to Florida. Since coming to Florida, we’ve pretty much played the same golf course three times a week. Why would we do this? There are many good reasons, here are my reasons we continue to play Twin Rivers Golf Club on a regular basis:

A Home Golf Club Urges You to Get Out of the House

When your home golf club is within easy reach, there’s less reason to quibble about the time it takes to play. It’s there, calling to you, come out and play!

A Home Golf Course Allows You to Focus on Your Golf Game

After you play a golf course several times, you begin to understand how you can get into trouble i.e. when the tee box tricks you into slicing towards the woods. By knowing the golf course, you easily find yourself paying attention to each stroke, not the golf course, not the excuses, not the game.

Playing Golf on a Home Golf Course Teaches Consistency

If you have a challenging golf course, you learn to narrow your shots to fit into tight corners while on new courses you’re more likely to hedge your bet and take a shorter shot.

Friends Can be Found at a Home Golf Course

Golf courses offer tournaments, meetings, events, food, and many chances to chat with other people and a home course brings you familiar faces instead of strangers.

A Challenging Home Golf Club Golf Course Improves Your Game

When faced with the same tight or troublesome shot time and again, you’re more likely to stop and figure out how to make the shot work right.

A Home Golf Club Keeps Your Handicap Up to Date at FGA

Most golf courses offer the ability to enter your score for your game into the computer in order to keep your handicap up to date, but your home golf course makes it easy and sometimes offers other benefits.

Nature is a Treat with the Right Home Golf Club

A golf club is often a time out of the congested traffic in the middle of fields, trees, beside rivers and beaches many times with flowers so the right home golf club can help relax you.

A Home Golf Club Keeps Your Golf Commitment Minimized

When you go to new golf courses, it often takes extra time to plan, call for tee times, drive to the new location and find it, then find out where all the supplies are. With a home golf club, you are right at home.

Knowing the Course Layout Can Save You Strokes

Your overall score is likely to go down on a home golf course. Often a new course is good for an extra ten stroke or more just because you don’t know what to expect.

    There’s nothing I like better then playing a round at my local golf club. Lot’s of friends, staff and a great atmosphere for all.

    Mostly for me it’s seeing the great people week in week out.

    It’s a great place to play a round of golf.
