SOTL members have a wide range of golf experience. Your involvement in the club will in someways depend on your experience with the game. We encourage members of all levels to
TAKE LESSONS: You can never have too many lessons. Check your local golf courses and community colleges.
PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE
PLAY! Don’t be afraid to come out and play with the club. We provide a safe place to play and learn. Be prepared to keep the game moving- even if it means you have to pick-up your ball.
Watch & learn from other experienced members. Ask questions.
Learn and always use proper golf etiquite when out on the course.
RSVP for events so we know we’re reaching you. RSVP even when you can’t come.
Respect payment deadlines: Our event coordinators work diligently to arrange outings. Usually the golf course requires payment well in advance of the tournament. Make it easy on us. Pay by the deadline and RSVP.
WET WEATHER AND WINTER GEAR
During our recent Let’s Chat About Golf Weekly Session, we received lots of good suggestions about wet weather gear while discussing this article –

We also got suggestions for waterproof shoes/ gloves/jackets (Gore-Tex) – www.footjoy.com – Dry joys are a good brand of Footjoy shoes.
Additionally, we received some additional suggestions for golf equipment from those who like to play in extreme conditions (cold and wet) golf cart covers and heaters – http://www.nationalgolfcartcovers.com
