I live near Pinehurst NC and sell real estate in the area so I finally decided to jump in the “water” and learn to play golf. Yesterday I played my first 9 holes at Beacon Ridge Golf Course in the gated lake/golf community of Seven Lakes West.
On Friday last week I took my first golf lesson and on Sunday a couple of friends took me out to play my first 9 holes at Beacon Ridge. I’m not an expert, but I’m told this is one of the more difficult courses in the area. And as a beginner I would expect most courses will seem difficult for me.
People have asked me how I did. My answer was that I didn’t keep score and I now know I need lots more lessons. I did quite enjoy playing and am now really looking forward to getting on the driving range to practice and also take more lessons. I’ve been told that as a tennis player it should be easier for me to learn to play golf than it might be for others without any athletic experience. I can honestly say that my tennis game is so far WAY better than my golf game.
I can see why so many people love the game even though it is quite difficult. You get to spend the day outside on lots of green grass and challenge your self each time you hit the ball. Hopefully I will get to play many of the golf courses in the Pinehurst area as I continue to learn the game.
Beacon Ridge is a lovely course in the gated golf/lake community of Seven Lakes West. Golf during the day and enjoy a boat ride in the evening. What could be better!
