"Best Wishes!" she said to me. I remember it like it was yesterday. I was walking in a local mall with my mother and we ran into a long time family friend. My mother updated her on the news that I was recently engaged, and whilst oggling at the ring, she exclaimed "Best Wishes!". I had never heard this before and when our brief encounter ended, my mother explained to me that she was correct in saying that as opposed to "Congratulations".
Proper Golf attire has been one of the emphases in the game more than any other sport in the world. From eighteenth-century rural Scotland where Golf has its origins to the modern courses of today, Golf attire has a long and interesting history that has been dictated as much by function, as style. It’s been shaped by various factors such as weather conditions where the game is played, the season of the year, and the motivations of the players – love for the game, or business interest. Today, both golf clubs and championship tournaments have strict dress codes for a player, which has evolved with the times and trends.
As today is Thanksgiving, I felt it only proper to give thanks for one thing we all love here at Plymouth Country Club: GOLF! Before you roll your eyes and click to the next post...hear me out. Golf is legendary. Staring in the Scottish Highlands, golf has grown into a gentleman's (or gentlewomen's) sport. This post is to remind us of three reasons we should be thankful for this great sport.
While Golf remains one of the most popular sports in the US, in recent years, Golf apps for smartphones have helped bridge the information gap and popularize the game even more. Learners, amateurs and experienced golfers are accessing Golf apps to record their game, analyze it, analyze their mind-frame, seek live guidance or just play a virtual game on their phones with buddies.
The popularity of Golf apps helps overcome some of its limitations. Learning the game involves familiarizing rules off a 200-page rule book. Further, in an increasingly hurried world, one does not have the time to spend years mastering the game. Quick guidance and quick information are always welcome. Further, Golf apps help break down barriers in what is regarded as an ‘elitist’ or ‘expensive’ game and bring a whole generation of golf lovers on a common platform.
So this winter, don’t be left behind when your friends or acquaintances are turning to Golf apps for various benefits. We will ensure you don’t, so we have compiled a short list of 4 apps that are good to have on your phone and used regularly.

Golf remains one of the most popular non-team sports in the USA. In spring 2017, 25.96 million Americans played golf across ages, categories, formats and locations (source: Statista.com). The US has the most number of courses in the world. There are as many as 15,372 courses across the country, which accounts for 45 percent of all courses across the world (source: espn.com).
Golf aficionados are spoilt for choice as there are innumerable middle-of-the-road Golf courses in every major city and town, offering various categories of membership. However, in recent years, Golf Country Clubs are emerging as an attractive option for several reasons – financial and otherwise.
Here are some reasons why a golf country club is a great investment:

- Participate in fun tournaments

Most people don't even consider 'dress code' these days as there aren't many places left with one. Casual wear has taken on a complete new meaning, it seems. How many times have you been running errands and seen someone wearing pajama pants and slippers? More times than you would like to admit, I am sure. I like my loungewear as much as the next gal, but I do yearn for the days when people dressed up. I mean, put together, shoes and bag matching DRESSED.
