Today, October 4, is National Golf Lover’s day, and if you’re lucky, you’ll have nice early fall weather to comfortably celebrate the popular game of precision and strategy. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or a new player, there are plenty of ways to celebrate National Golf Lover’s Day, so here are a few ideas to get you started.

Attend a golf tournament

If you’re looking for a more competitive way to celebrate National Golf Lover’s Day, consider attending a golf tournament. There are tournaments for all skill levels, so you’re sure to find one that’s right for you. If you aren’t quite as confident in your skills and you have friends who are more competitive than you, try entering a scramble tournament together.

A scramble will let your whole team play off the hits of whoever is hitting the best, evening out the competition and giving you a chance to enjoy this difficult game even if you aren’t the most skilled or experienced player.

Try a driving range game

Golf is a great game, but playing a whole 18 holes can be tiring and time-consuming. If you or your friends want to celebrate National Golf Lover’s Day in a different setting than a traditional golf course, try a golf driving range game like Top Golf or Big Shots. These games turn golf into a beginner-friendly experience similar to bowling.

You and your friends can choose from a variety of games and enjoy refreshing food and drinks while in an air-conditioned driving range booth. The location trackers in the venue’s golf balls will keep score for you to see which of your group hits the best drive or chip.

Take a golf lesson

It’s no secret that golf is one of the most difficult games out there, and even some professional athletes from other sports spend time, energy, and money trying to improve their golf game. If you’re new to golf, or if you’re looking to improve your game, consider taking a golf lesson to help you improve. A qualified instructor can help you learn the basics of the game or fine-tune your swing, and they can offer a perspective that you might not be able to see while swinging your own club.

Play a round of mini-golf

If you’re looking for a fun and casual way to celebrate National Golf Lover’s Day, you can’t forget one of America’s favorite casual games, mini golf. Whether you’ve never played golf or are an experienced player, playing mini-golf is a great way to take some of the pressure out of the formal game and focus on improving your putting.

The obstacles in mini-golf add some additional factors to the game and make luck have more of an effect, so they can help even out the competition between players at different levels. There are tons of mini-golf courses all over the country, so look for one near you with challenging obstacles and a unique theme, and have fun!
