Is a golf league for you? Let’s discuss everything you need to know before joining so you can decide if it’s the right choice for you.


Golf is Social

Golf is certainly a social game, even if you aren’t playing on a team. Sure, you could play a round or two of golf alone, but it’s much more enjoyable to play with friends, family, or even strangers. Plus, playing with others gives you a competitive edge and adds another layer of fun to the game. You’ll have plenty of time to crack jokes as you move from hole to hole and in-between shots. Golf leagues are a great way to build some unforgettable memories.


Meet New People

Golf is a great way to meet new people and make new friends. When you join a league, you have the option to enjoy some friendly competition and build strong friendships.

The downtime you have in-between shots gives you plenty of time to talk and get to know others. Many people have made life-long friends while golfing.


Time for Yourself

Golf leagues can be as much about having a nice escape from everyday life as they are about the game itself. When you join a golf league versus play a round or two here and there, you will meet regularly. This allows you to regularly set aside time for yourself. Some people join a league for a season, and some do it for many years. Either way, hitting up the golf course to meet with your league is a great excuse to unwind and relax with your friends.


Finding a League

Before you join a league, be sure you ask a few questions. You need to find a league that fits into your schedule. You are allowed to miss league a time or two, but if you will regularly be unable to attend, it’s best to find a different league. You’ll also want to make sure you join a league with members that are evenly matched. You don’t want to be playing with individuals who are far better or far worse than you. Many courses have options for all skill levels, as well as different leagues for men, women, seniors, and juniors. You’ll also want to make sure the cost is one you can afford.
