How to Get Ready for Return of Golf
It's a day that golfers have been waiting patiently for, but from Wednesday 13 May, courses across England are set to reopen, which is exciting news for those who have felt starved of the game since the UK Government introduced lockdown restrictions on 23 March.
However, irrespective of the impressive home setups that many golfers have deployed, hitting balls into bed sheets just isn't the same, so there will be a degree of rust for those making their way back onto the fairways. Depending on how physically active you have been during these challenging times, you may not be quite as flexible as you were when you last played.
Fortunately, at Golfshake, we have a vast library of content that should help to dust off those neglected clubs - and yourself - to make the best of things when you return to your local course. Here is our guide to Get Ready for Golf!
