Winter is the Best Time for Lessons - Here's Why

Winter is the Best Time for Lessons - Here's Why

Posted on December 14, 2017
The majority of recreational golfers don't take lessons. Most keep their heads down and hope to master the game on their own, instead of using the help that is widely available. And once those clubs go in the closets for the winter, there's definitely not any improvement happening. Winter is the perfect time to turn your game indoors and get to work on your swing.

Here are a few reasons why you should sign up for golf lessons during the off-season:

1. The climate-controlled facility eliminates any scheduling concerns due to weather. You can stay focused on form instead of staying warm! And it's been shown that more slow-motion swing practice will yield better results than hammering out shots on the range.

2. There's no upcoming tournaments to worry about during the winter. Retraining the mind and muscles takes more time than is usually available during the regular season - the typical amatear golfer could need anywhere from 10 to 10,000 hours of practice to reinforce changes. Even a winter of practice might not be enough time!

3. Practicing indoors with just the student and the instructor means no distractions from other golfers. Instead of worrying about what other golfers think of your form you can focus solely on making changes. Not to mention your instructor won't be distracted, either.

4. Indoor lessons during the winter means more time utilizing technology. We use Trackman video technology to evaluate things like ball flight and point of contact. It provides instant feedback and you can add yards to your game just by applying changes from that data.

There is literally no downside to golf lessons. Don't hang up your clubs just yet! Enrollment for golf lessons is still open. If you're already taking lessons or know someone who would appreciate lessons, get them a Delaware Country Club gift card! They can use it for lessons at any time.
