PRO-SPECTIVE: Trust

You step up, eyes gravitating automatically to the target. The visual is clear, concise. Your mind is uncluttered, focus seems effortless. The attitude of your body is steady, yet relaxed. Without undue delay, you pull the trigger at the dart board. BULLSEYE!

T'is the season for rosé

Rosé.  There, I wrote it, in your mind you said it and we both cringed.  For most people, mentioning the word Rosé conjures up bad memories of 70's, cheap, sweet and pink wines made by the truckload; sold as fast as it was made and consumed just as quickly.  The name Mateus may even come to mind...  shudder .

The view out your window might not inspire thoughts of gardening and yard work, but believe it or not, now is a great time to start planning for the year ahead.  It probably feels like your garden is at its emptiest right now... all of the year's growth has died back, been cut down or is covered in leaves.  I find this time of year can actually be more inspiring than a full garden.  It is an ideal time to assess the bones or structure of your garden, as the bare ground offers endless possibilities like a blank slate for the coming season.

Cordova Bay's fairways are fantastic.  Definitely the best in our area...and believe me in the top 3 that I have ever played from.  Consistent, smooth, firm ... the ball sits up and nearly begs to be struck with perfection. Our greens, thanks to our rolling program, are smooth and consistent.  The ball practically finds the hole by itself! 

PRO-SPECTIVE: Taking it to the course

From time to time our teaching staff hears a story from a golfer who is starting to sense improvement, and has had a few decent practice sessions that provide evidence to back up this notion.  Sadly, this promising story can be book-ended by a phrase like this: "If only I could take it onto the course."

PRO-SPECTIVE: How to work on your game over the winter

Our beautiful golf season is coming to an end, now what?

 

Our beautiful summer golf season is coming to an end, now what?  Did you play as well as you had wanted to?  Are you wanting to make improvements over the winter or is it time to hang up the clubs until next year?
