The Future of Golf

GOLF, WHAT NOW?

What are golf courses and business owners thinking now? Well firstly, we are astonished that it took a pandemic to bring the opportunities and benefits of this amazing game to fruition. The overwhelming response to tee time bookings, membership enrolment, returning players, newcomers and lesson inquiries has been extraordinary. This is all considering it has been years, since many clubs have seen this type of action and engagement.


SO WORTH IT!

When the green light was given by government authorities that golf courses would open for the 2020 season, it was imperative that new policies and procedures be implemented in order to ensure a safe and positive experience for employees, golfers and guests. We’d like to take a moment to commend all industry staff on adhering to safety policies, while working tirelessly to constantly sanitize, disinfect, check-in guests, serve guests, perform their employee duties and provide the utmost outstanding customer service. It wasn’t easy, but it was worth it! It was an honour to help give our communities an outlet to enjoy the game we all love so much and provide a safe way for people to come together during these unprecedented times.

 

FOR THE LOVE OF GOLF!

The pandemic has definitely played a major role in the resurrection of the golf industry. There’s no denying that 2020 was an amazing year for golf, but can we expect the same for 2021? Most golfers will tell you, once you’ve acquired a taste of an amazing golf experience, there’s really no removing yourself from this game. It becomes a lifestyle and part of who you are. It’s the only game where you can have a completely unsalvageable hole, but drop a massive 40 foot putt for a quadruple bogey and celebrate like you holed it from the tee deck.

With that being said, we are most definitely preparing ourselves for another year like 2020! We are gearing up to create more amazing memories for our golfers and we believe we are not alone in our thought process.

Why Have a Golf Club Fitting?

Whether you are relatively new to the game of golf or whether you have been teeing off at Durham golf courses for years already, there are many reasons as to why you may want to consider a professional golf club fitting.

What is a Golf Club Fitting

Essentially, a golf club fitting revolves around a professional customizing your golf clubs to suit you. This includes optimizing their length, weight, grip – basically, anything that can be adjusted will be. 

The Benefits of Getting Fitted for Golf Clubs

The vast majority of golfers will tell you that getting fitted for golf clubs is a must, especially if you are looking to see an improvement in your game. This is because golf clubs are literally fitted according to your swing. Another benefit is the fact there is plenty of amazing technology available in terms of golf club fitting that will provide you with the maximum advantage in the game. Never mind the fact that getting fitted for golf clubs at a golf club pro shop will provide you with a hearty confidence boost, and this is likely to improve your game quite drastically all on its own. 

Ultimately, getting a golf club fitting is worth it from a financial perspective as well. If you are already going to be investing in a brand-new set of golf clubs, you might as well make sure that your investment is of maximum value and that you will get the absolute most out of it! A golf club fitting will help to ensure that this is the case! 

Looking for the best place in Durham for a professional golf club fitting? Choose the Royal Ashburn Golf Club! For more information about the cost and the process, please be sure to get in touch with our team. 

A Club Fitting Is An Investment Into Your Clubs

As much as golf clubs are an investment in your game, a club fitting is an investment into your clubs. Countless golfers are playing clubs that aren’t designed for them and are quite possibly the cause of poor golf shots on the course. A good swing with a bad club can be a recipe for disaster and undue stress.

With modern golf clubs being priced as they are, a proper club fitting assures that you are getting the most value for your money, as well as a product that best suits your swing. Fitted clubs are sized correctly for you and have various characteristics that help you hit the shot shape you desire and can lead to increased distance, accuracy, and consistency.

What we Track?

Here at The Royal Ashburn Golf Club we use the Trackman radar system to measure your club and ball data  accurately and efficiently choose the correct equipment for you. Trackman measures how the club and ball are interacting at impact and then tracks the golf ball for its entire flight. This gives us immediate and precise feedback that clearly shows how one club is performing when compared to another. Trackman allows both the fitter and customer to see why and how come one product performs differently then another and why we choose the equipment we do.

Fittings are performed with the entire product line-ups from Titleist, PING, Callaway, and TaylorMade. Whether you are specific in what equipment you choose to play or would like to try out multiple offerings for multiple manufacturers; we have all the options you desire.

Our goal is to provide you a 1-on-1 personal experience with the highest quality equipment and a superior level of service and customer care.

Pricing for fitting sessions:

$100+hst for woods or iron sets

$200+hst for an entire bag (Woods, Irons, and Wedges)

Those looking to book an appointment or have any questions about the service, please feel free to email our Head Club Fitter Rob at clubfitting@royalashburngolfclub.com.

6 Tips for a First-Time Golfer

The biggest mistake anyone who wants to learn the game of golf can make is to avoid taking up the sport because of concerns about being a ‘first-time golfer’. Everyone on every golf course was a first-time golfer at some point.

Maybe you’re really interested in learning the game, or it would be a good career move, or you want to share yet another activity with your partner, family or friends. But whatever the reason, you owe it to yourself to learn the game properly and start to enjoy all the fun, healthy activity and companionship that golf has to offer.

To help you get into the swing of things (forgive us for that one!), here are a few tips to remember when you’re just starting out in golf.

1.Don’t Buy New Clubs Right Away

From the moment you start to golf, your game will constantly improve as long as you play regularly. Golf clubs can be a big investment. Good quality clubs are designed to help experienced golfers make better and/or more consistent shots. But their benefits will not help a first-time golfer learn to play any faster or better. And you have no way of knowing which are the best clubs for you until you learn more about the game and your style of play.

Instead, borrow a set of clubs or buy a used set to learn with. Then wait until you know more about the game and how you play it before investing in a new set of clubs.

2.Take Lessons

Hitting a golf ball properly means developing a good swing, and a good golf swing comes from developing good mechanics. If you start on your own, you can adopt bad mechanics that will be difficult to correct later on. Making the investment in lessons from professional instructors as soon as you begin to play the game will pay off in boosting your confidence, avoiding mistakes and learning the game faster and better.

3.Learn the Rules of the Game

If you think ‘hitting a birdie’ means you injured one of our fine feathered friends, well, you should brush up on the rules of the game. The more you know about the game and how it’s played, the more you will understand what you need to do and why you need to do it. And the more fun you will have.

4.Watch Golf on TV

There’s no better way to learn about the rules, how to swing and other parts of the game, like club selection, than by watching the best players in the world. They make it all look easy. But after you start to play, you will appreciate their level of skill and get a better idea of the direction you need to go with your own game.

5.Play!

Like anything you do, practice makes perfect. Take every opportunity you get to swing a club, whether it’s on the course or on the driving range. Especially if you invest in golf lessons, practicing helps you put into play everything you learn.

6.Let it Happen

Golf is a game in which you compete against yourself. Everyone learns to play at a different pace. If you feel you haven’t improved after your first few rounds, try not to be frustrated or discouraged. Regardless of what happened the last time you played, focus on having a better round next time.

If you would like to take private or semi-private lessons from the trained and certified golf instructors here at Royal Ashburn, get in touch with us today.
