It has been a couple of years since we have been able to take the Beginners out on to the loop at Heritage Point. The loop consists of 3 playing holes – a Par 3, 4, & 5, a great way to introduce new golfers to the game and remove some of the intimidation. This year Cindy Judd joined us mentoring the gals around the holes, she is probably the best story teller we know, so I am sure the ladies were entertained as well as learned some good stuff. After learning the basics of the tee box which is the starting point on each hole of a golf course and what the different sets of tees meant, the gals had fun hitting their balls down the fairway. The play was interspersed with advice on how to manage lost balls, balls in the rough and how to know how far away from the pin you were. Then there was the sand bunker and where you leave the rake after raking the trap. The putting green offered the opportunity to learn about the flag stick, minding it and being watchful of someone’s line and repairing a ball mark. We also had some dreaded water to contend with at Heritage, but all was well. Golf is a great game, we don’t have to be athletic or strong we just have to be patient, persistent and thoughtful of others. We finished up on the patio that has a picture perfect setting surrounded by beauty. Food and service were excellent and a great way to kick the season off taking away some of the jitters for those new to golf.
