It’s finally happening. In the past month, I’ve been able to go on vacation, enjoy an Angels game in person, have dinner with some friends, and spend time with my mom on Mother’s Day. Not that long ago, that would’ve been a normal sentence, but what does “normal” even mean any more? With cases plummeting, vaccinations flying off the shelves, and restrictions loosening, we’re all starting to restore a sense of the normal and familiar. I’m sure you have an ever-expanding list of things you can’t wait to return, but let me suggest one more: golf.
It makes sense that golf wouldn’t initially come to mind when forming your list. After all, golf has been one of the few outlets available to us over the past year and change. New golfers are picking up the game in droves, and seasoned golfers are playing more than ever. But throughout that time, something’s been lost: the golf community. No shotgun tournaments, no traditional handshakes on the 18th green, and no post-round recaps at the 19th hole. It’s about time we brought back the social side of golf. So get ready to say goodbye to awkward rounds with strangers and blaming missed putts on pool noodles, and rediscover the people that keep you coming back to the course time and time again.
Whether you’re looking to return to a group of familiar faces, or you want to unlock a whole new side of your golf game, let us help you connect to with a golf club in your area (like Penmar Social Club, the group featured in the video above). Find your golf home here.
