August is National Golf Month. The modern game originated in 15th century Scotland and still holds a prevalent spot in the sports world. The CSRA already has plenty of reasons to celebrate, but here are a few more ideas to grow your love of golf.

Take a golf lesson.
If you enjoy golfing for fun and camaraderie but want to get more serious about your technique, try taking a few lessons with a pro. They will give you expert advice on a good swing and you’ll be more likely to win a round next time you’re out with friends.
Try a new course.
We all know that one golf club in the area is off-limits to the public, but there are many other courses full of beauty and challenge. Forest Hills Golf Club is a staple in the area and was renovated by The Arnold Palmer Company in 2003. The rates are affordable and there is a banquet facility on site for events.
Bartram Trail is another beautiful course located in Columbia County and showcases the natural beauty of plants and greenery in the area. For a relaxing tee time, check their website here.
Close to the Hephzibah area, Goshen Plantation Golf Club boasts a rich course that golfers of any level can enjoy. It is perfect for a golf outing with friends or family.
While it may seem like a low-impact activity to play a round of golf, it’s easy to burn calories on the course. The multiple hills and dips while walking combined with the southern heat are sure to help you feel a burn in no time.
