In some states, golf wanes in the late summer months heading into fall. However, in Minnesota, many continue golfing until the first snow hits. We never know how long our winters will last, and many want to get in as much golf as possible.


If you’re one of those people who loves to golf until the snow comes, there are various things you can do to celebrate National Golf Month, which is every August.


Here, our team at Burl Oaks Golf Club will discuss different ways you and your family and friends can celebrate your love of golf!

Head to the Course

Whether a casual golfer or an avid player, the easiest way to celebrate National Golf Month is to head out to a course and start playing. Getting a group of family and friends together to play, going out by yourself, or working on your drives and putts are easy reasons to hit the course and better your game for the future.

Introduce a Friend or Family Member to the Game

What better way to celebrate golf than to introduce someone you love to the game you enjoy? If one of your friends has always mentioned tagging along with you on one of your outings, bring them along and let them learn the game.


You could also bring your kids, nieces, nephews, and other family members out to the course to teach them the game at a young age.

Take a Lesson

For national golf month, you can take the extra time off to improve your game by hiring a professional to coach you because practice makes perfect. You are never too old, young, or experienced to take golf lessons. If you’ve been playing for years and want to work out a slight flaw in your swing, consider taking a lesson to relearn the basics.


Additionally, if you’re new to the game, no matter your age, you can always take a lesson to learn the basics and work your way to the player you want to be. You can find private and group classes at Burl Oaks to enhance your skills.

Set Up a Friends and Family Tournament

A simple way to bring your family and friends together over your love of golf is to set up a small, informal tournament. Your relatives and friends of all ages can play, and you can all chip in to set up a small monetary prize for the winner, or you could celebrate with a big cookout at the end of the day.

Splurge On a Golf Cart

Splurging your hard-earned cash on a golf cart may seem excessive. However, it will save you a ton of money if you're an avid golfer.


Renting a golf cart every time can be very costly, so buying one would be a good investment in the long run. And national golf month is the perfect opportunity for you to get your hands on one.

Give a Golf Video Game a Try

Does it rain a lot in your area? Don't worry; you can still experience the thrill of golfing right at home.


Just download a couple of golf video games on your gaming console and enjoy the experience for yourself. For a realistic experience, you can try out Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2004 or Links 2003 golf video game.

Buy New Equipment

If you've had your eye on a certain type of golfing equipment, national golf month is the perfect time to buy them. Maybe you’ve been considering a custom club fitting?
