If you’re looking for ways to improve your golf game, you’ll find no shortage of great resources online from blog posts to YouTube videos. But what about those of us who are looking for more ways to have fun on the green?


There’s nothing wrong with being in it to win it, but sometimes, too much focus on coming in under par can end up sucking some of the fun out of the game. At Burl Oaks Golf Club, we love the fun side of golf as much as we love working on our swings. That’s why in this post, we’re sharing our favorite tips for making the most of our time out on the golf course.

1.   Improve Your Game.

We’re not talking about working so hard you forget how to have fun here. But we all know that when you’re performing well, playing golf can be so much more fun! After all, there’s nothing quite like showing off your excellent technique, and we wouldn’t blame you one bit if you want to be a bit of a showoff after taking golf lessons or spending time at our practice facilities.

2.   Upgrade Your Gear.

There’s nothing like flashy new gear to put a little spring in your step. Stop by our golf shop to stock up on fantastic golf merch including the latest apparel and other brand-name gear. 

3.   Don’t Take it Too Seriously.

Nobody wants to play with a golfer who takes his or her game too seriously. Although it may seem like a cliche, golf is just a game when it comes down to brass tacks. If you find yourself getting too wrapped up in the game, adopt some basic breathing and relaxation techniques. Don’t make excuses for bad plays. Instead, own your mistakes so you can grow from them. And above all, don’t be afraid to laugh at yourself. Everyone has off days, even the best pro golfers!

4.   Be Friendly.

Everyone loves a friendly player. Make that extra effort to be the person everyone loves to play with. Make small talk with other players and try to encourage them. At the same time, don’t be overly chatty. And whatever you do, stay off your mobile phone. Finally, try to practice good golf etiquette like being ready to go when it’s your turn.
