Let’s face it: life is busy. You’ve got a job, a family, bills, and many other commitments to juggle, so staying on top of your golf hobby might not always feel like a top priority. For many of us, this means it’s amongst the first things we drop when time gets tight.
But the reality is, whether you play competitively or for leisure, skipping your golfing sessions feels bad. As well as leaving you frustrated, it can weaken your golf skills, impact your social life, and waste the money you’ve spent on golf equipment, lessons or membership.
In 2016 it was revealed that UK golfers spent a combined total of £4.3 billion a year on their sport.
Here’s the good news. Thanks to the flexibility offered by PlayMoreGolf, your passion for golf can fit around your other commitments. There’s no need to choose one over the other.
So how can you make time for your golf despite a hectic schedule?
5 simple ways to play more golf in 2019
1. Tell your friends about PlayMoreGolf
Sometimes, being able to play a round of golf with your friends is a simple matter of convenience. That’s why, with PlayMoreGolf, you can play at any of our partnered clubs and set a golfing schedule to suit you.
As a PlayMoreGolf member you can take up to three friends for a round of golf. Better still, if they also become PlayMoreGolf members, you can use the incredible Buddy Booking software to book games as a group and play together at times and locations to suit everyone.
2. Hold a competition with friends
We all know that golf is a competitive game, but did you know you can also compete with friends to encourage more game play? Start an informal competition to see who can play the most rounds of golf in a period of time, or create a friendly golf tournament with a small prize for the winner.
Don’t forget, you can sign up with a friend and both receive 10 free points worth £30.
Investing in golf lessons helps you to commit to a weekly or fortnightly game of golf while enhancing your skills and pushing you to the next level. Many of our PlayMoreGolf partnered clubs offer golf lessons* so please check with a PlayMoreGolf representative if you’d like to give it a go!
*Please note that golf lessons will be at an extra expense and are not included in PlayMoreGolf membership.
4. Make it a family game
If family commitments are the reason you’re spending less time on the golf course, there’s a solution - make golf a family occasion.
This can serve two purposes. Firstly, it gets you back into the game without impacting your loved ones, and secondly, it helps bond the family and improves your children’s skills.
