Golf can prove to be as beneficial as it can be frustrating to those with little or no experience. So, for the fifth year, golf facilities nationwide, and now Mountain Aire Golf Club, are providing an easy and affordable introduction to the game through Get Golf Ready.

Designed for the millions who are new or occasional golfers, this program is intended to bring adults into the game by offering five introductory lessons in a small-group environment. Mountain Aire will conduct the lessons and provide participants with the opportunity to learn and practice the basics of the game in a fast and gratifying way for the low cost of $99. In just five lessons, students can expect to learn basic techniques from chipping and putting to full swing and bunker play, along with fundamental guidelines for the use and maintenance of golf equipment, keeping score and navigating the course.

Get Golf Ready provides a comfortable setting that will enable participants to reap benefits both on and off the fairway. Not only will they experience the satisfaction of sinking that first putt, but also realize the health, professional and personal benefits, some of which I have personally experienced.

Golf’s health and wellness benefits are excellent reasons to give Get Golf Ready a try. Walking an 18-hole round of golf is the equivalent to a 5-mile walk and approximately 2,000 calories burned. Regardless of handicap, gender, or course played, golfers exceed 10,000 steps during a typical round of golf.

For young and seasoned business professionals, men and women alike, the golf course provides an appropriate setting to develop new business relationships, network with colleagues, and enhance the self-esteem needed to set one apart at the office. When you are not closing the deal, the golf course also offers the perfect setting for families and friends to enjoy the outdoors and each other’s company.
