August is National Golf Month, and one thing that we love at Northampton Valley Country Club is the game of golf! After all, we have been planning golf outings since our country club was established back in the early 1960s!
In celebration of National Golf Month, we at Northampton Valley country Club figured that we would provide you with a short list of some interesting facts that you may (or may not know) about the game of golf!
1. Did you know that there are exactly 336 dimples on a regular sized golf ball!
2. Up until about 1850, golf balls were manufactured with really thin leather and were stuffed full of feathers! Can you imagine the mess that would make if one exploded, let alone the force it took to pack all of that in there?!
3. Over the past 20 years, more women have taken to the game of golf. In fact, there are over 2 million more women playing than there were 20 years ago!
4. Did you know that About.com rates Caddyshack as the number 1 best golf movie of all time? There is something both memorable and to be said about Bill Murray chasing around that gopher that eventually puts the golf club in ruins! Moral of the movie is, embrace Mother Nature and learn to laugh!
As National Golf Month is underway, don’t forget to call us ahead of time to get your golf outing or event scheduled. Spots fill up quickly, and we urge all golf enthusiasts to get in touch with us as soon as possible.
Cheers to National Golf Month this year!
