A New Year…A New Golf Season
A New Year…A New Golf Season; How will you prepare to play better in 2015? Each January many of us make resolutions. A low percentage of these are sustained or achieved for some reason. It is our goal to help our student base come up with “Solutions for 2015” that will get them closer to their ultimate golfing goals. In order to design a “solution,” we must first determine our “Why.” Why do we play golf? For some it is social, for others outdoor exercise, there are those who embrace the competitive nature of the game and for many it is just fun. Identify your personal “Why” and then we can take inventory of what is working well and what needs some enhancing. Once we have that list in place, we can then prioritize it and create strategies to attain better performance. It is essential that we never lose perspective and forget our “Why.” It can change and often does, but then so will our strategies for our “solutions.” Talk with your golf professional one-on-one about what you want from golf. Why you play and together you can develop a road map towards your goals. Keep it simple, attainable and fun. Goals can always be updated, challenges can always be added. The important thing is that each player is in control of their own golf destiny by choice. By making sure your goals are realistic, the solution to attain them should also be realistic. No matter what your “Why” is, always take in some deep breaths of fresh air, take notice of the beautiful surroundings and celebrate the little things each time you play. I assure you your time on the course or at the practice facility will be far more enjoyable. Keep Swinging
Spring is just around the corner……….It just has to be!
We all get excited at the idea of spring because it means we will be back out on the golf course with our friends enjoying the great game of golf once again. After a winter as severe as ours has been, that is even more appealing than usual. But what have you done to prepare? When was the last time you hit balls, stretched, putted or even gave much thought to golf at all? For many of us the answer is “too long ago to remember.” So how can we fast track our preparation and get ready for spring and summer golf? Well, start with an individual golf lesson with a local LPGA or PGA professional to discuss your goals and begin the strategic plan that will help you attain those goals. Find a professional who has access to an indoor studio so you can get right to work. Re-evaluate your exercise and fitness goals from last season and get to work. It is not magic, it takes some commitment on your part but in a very short time you will be out there soaking in the warm air, enjoying your golf friends and admiring your greatness……… At the Dona Lerner Golf Academy we have numerous instruction programs available for players of all skill levels. Please go to the Golf Instruction Programs section of our web site to see what programs are available that fit your schedule and your needs. If there are children in your life, please remember March 22nd from 2-4:30pm we will be hosting our Annual Youth Golf Kickoff Event. It is a fabulous family-friendly day. Hope to see everyone.
Leaves are Changing…Is your golf game ready for next season?
This is a very special time of the year to play golf. Days are shorter, but they are also cooler and the scenery is so beautiful with all of those changing leaves. It is the “next” season, are you and your game ready? It is definitely a great time of year to begin to set goals for the 2016 golf season. A great time of year to begin to work on those small changes that will bring large benefits. At Dona Lerner Golf Academy we are offering Get Golf Ready classes for the new, casual or returning golfer. We wil host AimPoint Express classes for those who wish to be better green readers and make more putts. We will meet with our Youth & Girls Golf program twice per month November through March just to keep everyone connected to the game. Kathy, Paul & Dona are all available for individual or group lessons by appointment. Let us help bring you into the “next season” with confidence. Our goal this fall is to enjoy every day possible, have fun with our students and help them all improve. We hope you will come out to Brier Creek Country Club and join in the fun in the fall sun! See you at the course!
