Christines Winter Golf Tips

Winter Checklist that will help you get a grip on Winter Golf

Most of us take a little time to prepare our cars and homes for winter conditions – get the boiler serviced, chop the logs, buy some screen de-icer top up the antifreeze etc etc – well what about your golf equipment?

  • Grips – Now is a good time to think about changing the grips on your golf clubs, they have taken a bit of a pounding through the summer months and may be starting to look a bit tired and shiny – pop in to the pro shop for an assessment and quote, we can re grip your golf clubs overnight!
  • Don’t keep your clubs in the cold this can make the grips on your golf clubs harden and feel less secure in your hands, give your clubs a treat keep them under the bed – or somewhere warm.
  • Make sure you have a good All Weather golf glove or even better a pair – we recommend Footjoy Weathersof and Extreme.
  • Don’t let your hands get cold – use Mycoal hand warmers and put them in your mittens, the same goes for your feet! good socks and some Mycoal foot warmers and you will be as warm as toast for 18 holes.
  • It is easy to forget that soft spikes wear out! Check your shoes and get them re-spiked in the Pro Shop even if you only have a couple of worn spikes it can cause you to lose your grounding!
  • Investing in a good pair of FootJoy Waterproof shoes at the start of winter can help to increase your comfort in the months to come – happy feet, happy golfer!
  •  Keep you golfing brain warm with a good quality. Thermal lined Thorpeness bonnet – fabulous choice of styles and colours.
  •  Modern Waterproofs are just so much better than they were in the good old days, if you haven’t upgraded recently it’s well worth it as the new fabrics on offer make swinging in rain gear a breeze.
  •  Use the winter months to improve your game – book a lesson and make a plan to improve the aspects of your golf game that cause you to lose shots around the course – we are here to help in the Pro Shop at Thorpeness.

I hope you have had a very Merry Christmas and a Good Golfing New Year.
