Many people were contemplating Dry January, but when the new lockdown restrictions came into place at the start of the month, many decided it was not the right time. However, for those that went the whole month without breaking, Congratulations! Many believe having a whole month alcohol free is not only good for your health but for your bank balance as well.
A recent study from Golf Travel Centre discussed data obtained from the Deltic Night Index which revealed on average an individual spends £68.68 on a night out with no lockdown restrictions. With 58% of the respondents highlighting that they would go out at least once a week, this means that if you participated in a 30-day dry month you would save around £343. It might be worth that dry month after all this year!
What better motivator to have a dry month than at the end of the month saving £343! We have put together some ideas of what you could spend that money on:
TECTECTEC VPRO500 Golf Rangefinder
Range finders have become one of the most sought-after gadgets in the last 10 years. Arguably one of the most valuable pieces of equipment a golfer can purchase to help improve their game. As a golfer, you know the importance of needing to know your yardage and don’t want to leave yourself guessing. This VPRO500 is one of the most cost-effective rangefinders on the market. It has angle compensation, making sure you get accurate measurements even when your target is uphill or downhill. With true yardage backing you up, you will be able to make more informed decisions about how to play the ball or which club to go for.
