Spikeless or Spikes … That Is The Question

When you golf, what type of shoes do you wear?   Spikes?  Spikeless?  Or another type of shoe?   Now, when talking spikes I do not mean the metal spikes. More talking about soft spikes.     Here are some Pros and Cons to the debate: Spikes Pros Traction – with a traditional look and ability to change worn spikes, these shoes offer maximum traction Course Conditions – plays off of the first point but in wetter conditions shoes with […]

“Gorjus” George…. Yardologist

The following account is about a man named George Lucas. No… not the Star Wars guy.

Seasons Change… and So Does the Beer

          One of the many perks of being a bartender brings the changing of the beer taps. Not only changing from one type of beer to another, but more so the changing of seasonal beer.  Seasonal beer arrivals bring a lot of excitement to the customer, and as bartenders we love seeing and sharing the customers’ excitement when we put a summer beer on tap as the weather starts to get warmer, or when we exchange the summer beers for […]

Teamwork Makes The Dream Work

This post is written by Steve Diehl, Assistant Superintendent at Candia Woods. “Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision, the ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organizational objectives.  It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results.” Seeing as this is my first blog I wanted to write something sort of out of the realm of what others have posted in the past.  However, I came up short on what to discuss until […]

Make-A-Wish: The Annual Weathervane Golf Fundraiser

Part 6 of our Guest Blog Series – This post is written by Ian Kelley for Weathervane Restaurants and Make A Wish. When it comes to making wishes on the golf course, most players probably pray for long drives and accurate putts — or perhaps a bit of divine intervention to escape from a deep, steep bunker. But for one very special day each September, golfers gather to help grant the wishes of children who have been diagnosed with a […]

Since 1905, the NHGA has served amateur golf in the state of New Hampshire.

Time Saving Tips To Get Your Golf In

One thing that we wish that we all had more of…time.  Many golfers that I speak with say that they wish they could play or practice more, but they just don’t have the time.  Work, family, and other social commitments will take up a majority of our time. Typically an 18 hole round of golf will take anywhere from 4hrs 15mins to 4hrs 30mins.  Add in the drive to and from the golf course as well as the post round […]

Do You Have Enough Bounce?

I was watching a PGA Tour event a few weeks ago when the announcers mentioned the degrees of bounce on a player’s sand wedge and I wondered if even half the people watching even knew what they meant by “bounce angle”. Contrary to some beliefs bounce is not what you put in your drier to make clothes have less static but the angle the leading edge of the golf club is recessed off the ground at address. Every iron has […]

Putters… What’s Right for You?

When do you need a new putter? If you average more than 2 putts per green in a round, it’s time for something new.  But… Which putter is the right one? Should you get a blade or a mallet? What length should you get? What is the best grip for you? Who should you go to for the answers to these questions? Do you watch Golf on television? The tour players have putting all figured out, right.  Well, not necessarily, […]

Are Golfers About to Become Surfers?

Golfers could soon be, in the words of Mike Love and the Beach Boys, “loading up their woody with their boards inside and headin’ out singing their song”? No. It’s not that golfers are about to give up their game to become surfers; instead, it’s a new concept being introduced to golf that may link these two sporting passions together. Named the Best New Product at the 2014 PGA Merchandise Show, a device called the GolfBoard is starting to appear […]

Which golf ball should I play?

This is a question that most every golfer has asked their golf professional at one time or another. We are all bombarded with ads while watching our favorite golf event or listening to the golf channel or similar programs as why their golf ball is the best or fits a certain golfer. Even after listening to the ads there are probably still many doubts as to what golf ball to play. My opinion and recommendation as to what ball to […]
