Here’s a great way to kick off 2022: Plan to play a new course or two in Myrtle Beach. There are dozens to choose from in your favorite vacation destination. We’ve gathered a few you should book tee times for soon.
When trying a course for the first time, it helps to adjust your approach. Come in with an inquisitive and forgiving mind. Here are some tips:
1. Aim for the Center of the Green
It’s conservative, but also more likely to produce an enjoyable round — and palatable score. Pin hunting on a course you’re familiar with is one thing, but when learning a new one, go for the fat of the green.
2. Ditch the Scorecard
Blasphemy, says the competitive contingent here. If skipping the scoring is too much to ask, consider match play with a partner. At least you don’t have to finish if you’re building a snowman on a tricky hole or two.
3. Remember to Enjoy Yourself
A maiden voyage on a course with a reputation for being a monster can be a disaster in the making. But only if you make it so. If you’re playing a tournament on a new course, get in a practice round to familiarize yourself.
