Named a Golf Digest "Best Places to Play"

With the new year about to start, it’s a good time to think about your golf game. While making your new year’s resolutions for 2021, consider including some golf goals to help you improve your game. Whether you’re new to golf or a bit rusty, this is a great time to set some goals to achieve throughout the year. Keep the following golf resolutions in mind for the new year when you’re playing at Central Oregon’s best golf course.

1. Set Realistic Goals

Whether you’re aiming to break 70 or just want to focus on mastering certain shots, make sure you set achievable goals. Setting goals that are too difficult can leave you feeling frustrated early in the year, which might lead to giving up on your resolutions. Instead, set smaller goals to work toward over the course of the year, such as aiming for 3 strokes lower than your best score at first. You can work up to more difficult goals throughout the year but setting these smaller ones first can help keep you motivated.

2. Plan More Putting Practice

Golfers of all skill levels can benefit from getting more practice putting. Make a plan to work on more putting throughout the year to help improve your game overall. You can get your putter out and spend time at the putting green while waiting for your golfing buddies to show up at the course. You don’t even have to wait until you’re at the course to practice putting. You can get in some practice time in your yard or even indoors if you have a putting mat handy.

3. Invest in Some New Clubs

If you’ve been playing with an older set of clubs, your golf game won’t be as solid as it could be. Set a goal of replacing your clubs with high-quality, brand new ones that will help you make your shots better. If you have clubs that aren’t that old, you should set a goal to check them from time to time and have them repaired as needed. It’s easy to overlook regular golf club inspections but making sure that you’re playing with ones that are in good shape can do wonders for your game.

4. Visit a Different Golf Course

Playing golf on the same course might give you a sense of familiarity that’s calming, but it could also lead you into a rut. If you’ve been in the habit of going to the same golf course, set a goal to play at a different one this year. River’s Edge in Bend offers a scenic and challenging course that can encourage you to put your skills to the test.
