Confessions of a Niner
Posted by Susan Smiley on Tuesday, February 07, 2017

I must confess that I am a 9-hole player. Occasionally I might foray into 18-hole territory but for the most part, a 9-hole round fits in better with my lifestyle.

Perhaps growing up within biking distance of a 9-hole course conditioned me to realize way before it was trendy that “nine is fine.” The little 9-hole course also had a driving range and putt-putt so for kids, making it the perfect place to spend a lazy summer afternoon. ... View this Post.

Posted by Susan Smiley on Tuesday, January 24, 2017

If you’re a golfer in Michigan and have not been able to get to warmer temps this winter, you are no doubt experiencing golf withdrawal. You might have gotten in a bit of practice at the heated tees at your local driving range or at your favorite golf simulator, but there is something else you can do to help your golf game all year round – yoga.

Before you scoff and say that yoga is not for you, let me tell you that there are at least two people in my Saturday morning yoga class who articulated that their main reason for taking yoga is to help their golf game. ... View this Post.

Golf: the Healthy Choice
Posted by Susan Smiley on Tuesday, October 18, 2016

Last week, the World Golf Federation announced its launch of the Golf & Health Project which uses research to show the physical and mental health benefits of golf. While it seems like a no-brainer that golf is a healthy activity, it is a great motivator to be reminded of all of the many great things golf can do for you from a health standpoint.

So as you are cursing your golf ball for edging just wide of the hole or venturing deep into the woods to find your golf ball that was not quite down the middle of the fairway, remember that no matter what your skill level, a lot of good things are happening out on the links.

Golf provides moderate aerobic exercise for most golfers. ... View this Post.
