Golfer’s tutorial to joining and socializing in golf clubs

If you’re a golfer who plays and practices a lot, it might be good idea to consider joining a club. It will benefit both your pocket and social life, as joining the right club can be a lot of fun. In my opinion, the most important thing you need to get right is the choice of club. There are so many clubs in where i live, and i had to search a lot before i could find the one with members who are similar to me, both in mentality and social status. So i took the leap of faith and joined this one club, about ten months ago. And i have to say, my expectations were very different from what golf club actually turned out to be. I thought i’d be playing golf and practicing a lot, but once i joined, i was pleasantly surprised.  Here are the reasons why:

  First of all, i have to talk about people. One of the best things about choosing good golf club is that you get to hang around like-minded people and bond over your favorite sport. It might seem insignificant to some people, but to me, that was the best thing that i could ever expect.  I am in my late twenties, so i thought i’d join the club with lower average age, and i made the right choice. Some of my friends joined with me, so i wasn’t alone, but everyone was still so nice to our group that i made ton of friends quickly, anyway. Even the older guys were inviting and we would frequently drink together after game. I’m natural introvert, so i never had experience of making friends so easily before. But, i guess, love of golf can bring people together more than anything else. We’ve expanded our group with some guys, who were arguably much better golfers than us, and played golf together a lot, so my golf game has improved as well. It might also have something to do with my new clubs, which are great.  Overall, i couldn’t be more happier with this choice.

Now let’s get to actual tips. My first, and most notable advice would be to put a lot of effort into socializing with other guys. After you’re done golfing, don’t head home straight away. If people invite you to come over for drinks after the game, have a good time with them and leave quickly if you are in rush. Trust me, it will go a long way. Plus, if most guys happen to be married, there will be social events that you can attend with your wife. So that’s pretty cool perk to get even closer with guys.

The last tip would be to pick the right course. I can’t stress this enough. It’s not only people either. Make sure to check yelp reviews and stuff like that online, just to make sure you don’t end up with a club that is disorganized and dirty. Even if people are great, that’s not enough to offset the cost of bad maintenance problems on the golf course. At least that’s how it is for me.
