Lesson Spotlight: Maintaining the Course
10th May 2019

Bunker CareConfidence on the golf course is paramount, especially when it comes to younger, more inexperienced golfers. Course maintenance may seem like a minor detail for new golfers to understand, but knowing what rules you need to follow helps provide a welcome confidence boost when you step out on the first tee box.

Among the many topics covered in a TGA class is what golfers can do to help maintain the quality of a golf course. Since no two golf holes are the same, there are certain generic standards that each golfer is held to in order to make sure everyone can enjoy his or her round.

Repairing a DivotSince most enrichment programs are not at golf courses, our coaches use TGA’s golf teaching aid and student handbooks to introduce the most important points young golfers should learn. These student handbook graphics cover repairing ball marks and divots as well as raking bunkers. Lessons about course maintenance also help with some of the golf vocabulary coaches cover in class.

It’s important that young golfers learn these lessons prior to hitting the golf course with friends or family so that everyone can have fun.

TGA Summer Camps are a great way for students to continue to improve their play and gain knowledge that will make them more confident golfers. To learn more about TGA Summer Camps and to find one near you, click here.
