Spring has arrived and for a lot of people elsewhere in the country that means plenty of golf on the horizon through the summer. Golf in Palm Desert will be winding down soon here as this part of California starts to see searing temps, but greenskeepers in other regions are getting to work in preparation for all those ready to arrive and get their round in. Speaking of greens, it is always frustrating when you are strong off the tee, make a great approach onto the green, but then see your first attempt at a put go wrong and unexpectedly so.

Precipitation happens, and if you’re going to book a tee time at any golf course in Palm Desert, you’re not going to let a little bit of the wet stuff stop you from getting your round in. Now, if it’s a torrential downpour we’re talking about, you may want to skip the links then, but if it’s just a shower, there’s no reason you can’t get out on the course and enjoy your day. Some people actually enjoy the smell that emanates from the freshly cut grass as the water mixes with it, although we’re sure that does nothing for your swing. You’ll want to be mindful of your grip though, and that’s what ..read more

Footwork plays a role in performance with all sports, and golf is no exception. While there may be course grass under a golfer’s feet the same way there is for a football or field lacrosse player, no golfer is going to running a post route and planting their foot in the grass hard after sprinting 15 yards downfield. Nonetheless, the function of your feet in your golf swing is something to consider and that is the most basic point to be aware of when asking are golf shoes worth it. If you’re the most casual of golfers and your focus is much more on enjoyment rather than performance  then y ..read more

If so it’s going to be grass under your feet while you’re on the links, but have you ever given much thought to what type of grass is found on most golf courses?

Here we are in October, and for some people it might seem odd to be blogging on new golf gear trends when for most parts of the country there’s going to be fewer people on the links from here on out.

Average daily temperatures to the East of us may be ideal for a round of golf between May and August, but here they’d be wa ..read more

Everyone who golfs will have been told to ‘let the club do the work’ when learning to how to swing a golf club properly, and for most of us that learning occurred a long time ago. But a capable golfer doesn’t just happen, and we need to remember that everyone is going to be at a different point in their golf discovery journey. Sure, the club does do the work,  but the club is only as good as the hands it’s in. Whether or not those hands are capable of making that club do what it should remains to be seen. We have plenty of golfers who are still fairly new to the sport that come to our Pal ..read more
