There is one thing that we know at Northampton Valley Country Club, playing winter golf in Bucks County, PA is not that same as it is when you play it in the summer. While it might not seem ideal to golf in the winter, there are those that spend their time treading through the snow and walking on dead grass to get their round in. These people are what you call dedicated.
One of the reasons that some people might be playing in the winter, cold, and snow is because they are afraid that they will lose their edge. However, for those that don’t want to lose their edge, but also don’t have the patience or desire to play in the winter, we have provided three ways in which you can help to maintain your golf game shape and stamina. For those of you who follow us on our blog, this topic also relates to one of our previous entries titled: “3 Ways Golf Is Beneficial For Your Health.”
This might seem like a no-brainer, but going to the gym and lifting and/or using weights at home will be incredibly beneficial. While you might think that keeping your arms strong is important, you should also be working on your core and glutes. Doing glute and core exercises will help you maintain your balance and power for when it comes time to hit the ball next spring.
Practice Swinging With Weighted Clubs
This also goes along with lifting weights. In a room with plenty of space, use a weighted club to not only work on, but maintain your swing. When it comes time to golf during the spring once more, your body will thank you for keeping up the muscle memory and how to swing correctly.
Make A Plan To Not Only Visit The Driving Range, But Make Your Visits Consistent
Obviously, this is the something that you should be doing anyway, but it is still worth mentioning on our list because nothing is more important than continuing to hit golf balls—even in the off season! Make it a plan to visit either an indoor or outdoor range as much as you can!
Northampton Valley Country Club has hosted many golf outings for Philadelphia charities, companies, and other special events and more.
