Getting Back Into the Swing

Spring is likely the most favorite time of year for those loving golf to be out on the spectacular courses our area affords them. They arrive in droves from both the U.S. and Canada looking for the best golf packages and reserving their Myrtle Beach tee times.

Myrtle Beach tee timesWe look forward to their arrival and have our accommodations ready and waiting for new occupants. If you haven’t purchased your package yet take a look at what we have on our site where you can not only choose your package but also your accommodations and schedule your ideal Myrtle Beach tee times as well.

The beginning of the golf season is a good time to update your equipment with the newest technology if you’re due. Take the time to test some different clubs. Locate one of the many golf shops in the area that has demo clubs or attend a demo day near you to find the ideal equipment for you.

Myrtle Beach tee timesIf you’ve been lying dormant most of the winter be sure to do some easy stretching exercises before you start playing. Focus especially on your lower back, hips and shoulders. Before you leave home, take some time to start swinging your club in your backyard, garage, or anywhere you can safely practice your swing. Start with a short iron and make shorter swings, gradually building up to a maximum length and full speed swing. Swinging with a weighted club can also be helpful.

Everyone experiences a set back in their game when they stop playing for the winter. Don’t expect to come back playing at the same level you ended at. Spend most of your early season working on your short game.

Spend some of your practice time working on putting, too. Work on hitting putts that vary in both speed and break. Make putts similar to the ones you’ll expect to have on the course.

Keeping these tips in mind you should be back in the full swing of things in no time!

Developing Confidence on the Course

There is no better time to practice confidence on the golf course than when you’re enjoying a Myrtle Beach golf vacation. You don’t have to be concerned with anyone you know seeing you drive your ball into the rough. You’re basically someplace where it’s safe to just be yourself, be gentle with yourself, and work out those less-than-ideal issues you have with your game.

Myrtle Beach golf vacationIt’s easy to feel confident when your game is going well but not so much when drive after drive angles off into somewhere other than where you intended. Most times this has more to do with what’s going on between your ears than how you’re swinging your club both at home and while on your much anticipated Myrtle Beach golf vacation.

The key to being successful on the golf course is quality practice on a regular basis. Define your goals for what you want to achieve ahead of time. Hitting balls at the golf range all day will be a good workout, but likely won’t transfer into success on the course. An important part of what you should be practicing at the driving range is your level of concentration and your self-talk. Think only positive thoughts and let go of the less than ideal games you’ve played.

What matters most is how you talk to yourself when trying to empower yourself. When faced with difficulties on the course, draw upon all you have learned and trust your disciplined practice ritual. Believe in yourself. That’s the true essence of confidence.

How to Find Your Ideal Myrtle Beach Tee Time

Some people think it’s a well-kept secret on how to obtain the best tee times on the Myrtle Beach courses but it’s really not. Experience will teach you how to get the tee times you want. It’s mostly about timing. Don’t wait until the last minute to try to book your Myrtle Beach tee time. Once you’ve missed out on enough of the tee times you wanted you’ll learn the lesson to call early, as soon as you first know when you want to play.

Myrtle Beach tee timeNow anybody that loves golf will tell you that any tee time is better than no tee time at all so you’ll always be able to play where you want, maybe just not when you want to.

When you schedule your Myrtle Beach tee time it’s important to be there ahead of time and not be running late. If you’re new to the game there is course etiquette that you should be aware of. So take 20 minutes and read the rule book. Don’t try to memorize it but simply get the flavor of the rules of the game you’re playing. If you injure the course in any way, repair it the best way you can. Fix your divots and repair your ball marks and if you make a mess in the bunkers, make the effort to rake it out.

Don’t waste time when it’s time to play. As they say — play without delay. Try to keep up with the pace of play. When recording your score, step away from the green you just played so the group behind you can play. Write your score down on the next tee. Don’t give a lesson during a round. Save your instruction for the practice tee where there is nobody behind you waiting to play. Practice shots or mulligans have no place on the course. Be ready to play when it’s your turn, and if you’re moving slow, let the faster players play through.

Get Your Preferred Tee Times

How to obtain your preferred tee times seems to be one of the best kept secrets in the golf world. Ideally, you should plan ahead and have tee times reserved well in advance of your arrival so you are guaranteed to have a spot on the course. Just as soon as you know you’re coming and the date, come to our website to choose your packages and reserve your preferred tee times. Myrtle Beach tee times are in high demand and get reserved early, more so during the most popular times of the year.

Myrtle Beach tee timesWe realize you won’t always be able to know ahead of time that you’ll be playing golf on the day you’re actually going and so you won’t always get optimum tee times. Try to remember that when you go. However, what one person considers optimum Myrtle Beach tee times may not necessarily be another person’s preferred time. There are always going to be people looking for last minute tee times.

In addition, it is not uncommon to have several groups hoping to make an appearance on the course despite looking for times the day before. If you are golfing alone you can often be offered the option of being placed with a group with less than 4 players. If it is more important that you play than who you actually play with, this would work out well for you.
