Gaining Confidence by playing the right Golf Courses for you

Whether you are a beginner golfer or a single-digit handicapper, playing the right golf courses for your game (and from the correct tee box) can truly inspire confidence. The reverse is also true; playing too difficult a golf course for your level of play can become a four-hour struggle, dampening your spirits and taking your game two steps in reverse. Of course, it isn't just the golf course that inspires confidence, the space between your ears determines the final outcome.


Although FindtheBest.com is still in beta, this resource offers comparisons on everything from flight schools to golf courses. The golf course portion of this work in progress ranks public and private courses, offers USGA course rating as well as weekend greens fees.


I received this note from Woody Robinson regarding FindtheBest.com and, since it so prominently added Golf for Beginners into the mix, I have posted it for your review. This is not a hype for the website; it's always interesting to find the latest sites and bring them to our readers. Judge for yourself.





Every golfer has experienced a rough day at the course. Just last week I left a cat sized divot at the local par-3 only to see my golf ball roll off the tee box. “You should really widen your stance and stop breaking your wrists so much,” my smirking friend chimed in.


While the advice was probably true, my stubborn embarrassment refused to listen. Golf for Beginners website, on the other hand, offers an unbiased opinion without mortifying you on the course.


Finding that comfortable confidence in golf is something we all aim to achieve but rarely find. I’ve found the golf course affects my game more than anything else. Just as a good golf swing has countless makes and models, different golf courses offer a broad spectrum of diverse play. Being a novice golfer, nothing is better than a public par-3.


NICE! Woody's home course: Twin Lakes


Stacy’s personal accounts of courses played provides an incredibly useful reference. Similarly, the  golf course comparisons on FindtheBest.com can help you find a course which inspires confidence and/or challenges your game.


From playing a round out with old friends to training for a regional qualifier, check out the comparisons and you may just spend less time on your computer and more time on the links!

I can't tell you how many times I've said this same thing to players. Why stress yourself out by playing from a tee box you know isn't at your skill level?

Distance isn't my problem...accuracy, well, that's quite another story ;-)
