Op tips for a better golf game

There are many reasons why Old Palm Golf Club is one of the most sought-after locations for golf club homes in Palm Beach Gardens. Whether you are a seasoned professional or simply a lover of the game, there is no better place to sharpen your skills.

Here are three simple tips from our golf pros for stepping up your golf game this year!


1. Take a Class — Or Several

Practice makes perfect, and Old Palm Golf Club has ample opportunities for it. In addition to the personalized instruction available year-round at our Golf Studio, we also regularly offer classes where our members can get tips from the nation’s top golf teachers in a small group setting.

One of these is our 8-Week Scoring Class, which will be held Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. February 27 through April 18. Our golf team partnered with Operation 36 to present this class, which aims to help students reduce their handicap by teaching them the skills needed. Members who are interested in attending can sign up by emailing Dan Terlescki at dan.terlescki@oldpalmgolfclub.com. Other courses like this are offered regularly, such as the Top 100 Teacher’s in America Golf Score help February 2 and 3, and even junior golf clinics, like the one being held on February 3, 10, 17 and 24 with U.S. Kids Golf Certified Instructor Joe Condomitti. Members who are interested in enrolling in the Junior Golf Clinic can call the Golf Shop to sign up.


2. Ensure You Have the Right Gear

You wouldn’t be able to build a very sturdy house if all you had was a rusty old hammer to work with. That’s because it’s nearly impossible to perform well without the right tools, and the same is true for golf. You need the right equipment to play your best, particularly when it comes to clubs. What works for one golfer may not work for another, as skill level, height, swing speed, swing consistency, and more must be considered before one can accurately determine what clubs will work for them.

If you need to get your hands on the top tools of the trade, there’s no better place to get it than the Old Palm Golf Shop. In fact, our golf shop was recently selected to receive the Association of Golf Merchandisers Platinum Award for 2018. This recognition is awarded to the world’s top 100 golf shops, and it means our shop achieved top rankings for performance statistics, visual standards and initiatives. More than anything, it demonstrates our commitment to delivering the best of the best for our members.


3. Hit the Gym

There’s no denying that golf isn’t often viewed as a physically demanding sport. However, those who know the game well know that being in good shape is essential for excelling at golf. Luckily, the Club at Old Palm has a full fitness studio filled with the latest training equipment, with several machines designed specifically for golfers. Our trainers also offer diet tips and personalized programs that can address specific issues to enhance your swing. Plus, there are plenty of group classes available that target golfer’s needs as well.
