How to Find the Best Golf Venue for Your Next Game

A golf game is nothing if the golf course is beat up and poorly maintained. The course must have enough staff and equipment to ensure that at least the course looks good even if your game doesn’t. The staff must know the rules and regulations of the course to stop the players from cutting ruts in the freeway and mortar holes still  in the high grass. You want a course that is good looking not a battlefield.

Of course, the golf club must have a good 19th hole for a cold beer and a snack after the game. No warm beer and cold dogs. That would ruin the best day of golf. 

It would not hurt if the course had a good golf store for you to pick and choose amongst good equipment. You might find a good driver that could straighten out your drive. Or, replace the golf balls eaten by the water hazards.  If not, you can always use this sports equipment store; for your equipment.

You probably have several courses within 20 miles of your home. How are you going to know what course to go to?

Yes, there is a source of knowledge. This website is one; is yours to pick for information.  Feel free to use it. Also, there is They also know the golf courses available.
