Gearing up for Golf!

Summer is fast approaching and with it, our favorite past time GOLF!  You just can’t wait to get back on the green. There’s no doubt your more than ready…but are you really?  What if you aren’t?

Well, you will be, with these great tips to tune in and shape up your game before that first official tee time! They are sure to help you confidently give it your best 18 time and time again this summer.

First and foremost your gear needs to be up to par.  Excuse the pun. This means cleaning out that golf bag you haven’t touched since last season, and restocking it with all your essentials.  Be sure to include the sunscreen as we know it tends to be forgotten until that all too familiar burn sets in around Hole 9.  While on the subject of your equipment, be sure to check your bag, club grips and covers for wear in case a repair is needed.  Don’t skimp on these repairs due to expense as you might be happily surprised to find new grips, for instance, aren’t as expensive as one would think and have been known to make a huge difference in one’s golf game. 

Now that your gear is set to go be sure to put it to work!  Get out there for some early morning practice rounds to shake the rust off.  The most important thing here is not to forget your short game.  You can practice the long shots all day long and get them down pat, but when the pressure is really on its those short shots that tend to kill us.  So don’t forget to spend time in the putting range as well.

A large part of getting your game back includes being fit or lets face it for some of us at least just physically WELL.  If you can’t get a whole exercise routine in your daily schedule at least spend some time each morning stretching and again right before you hit the course.  You’ll find a good stretch really helps you to limber up and relax for those more stressful shots.  Another important part of being well is paying attention to your diet.  You don’t have to give up that juicy steak at dinner time but try to incorporate a more balanced diet to up your energy and improve your stamina so you can make it those 18 holes with energy to spare.

Finally be sure to fit out your golf cart for convenience.  Nothing is more aggravating then searching for an item you should have ready in between holes.  Your score card for one.  We have score card holders for 5 and 6 hole steering wheels to keep you organized through your game.  Along with that same sentiment we offer and have a wide variety of accessories to help keep the items you need mot conveniently at your fingertips:

Street Legal Golf Cars

Depending on where you live, a NEV, or Neighborhood Electric Vehicle, may be a great option. Many communities are mandating the cessation of Fossil Fuel burning transportation, or strongly encouraging the use of electric vehicles. You need to check your local regulations in regards to what makes a Golf Car ‘Street Legal,’ as well as safe to operate.  Most laws specify at least; 3 point retractable seat belts, fully functional lights (Headlights, Taillights, Turn Signals, and Brake Lights), a windshield, reflectors on front, rear, and sides, a top speed of 25 mph (40 kph), internal and exterior mirrors on both sides of the car, parking brake and Vehicle Identification Number, or VIN.  Most importantly a street legal Golf Car may only travel on roads where the speed limit is 35 MPH or lower. Most states also require you to register your Golf Car with your state, as you would any other car or truck.  These are general guidelines, and each builder, or owner MUST comply with local regulations. Communities like the Villages here in Florida have their own guidelines. Once you understand the rules, we will get the parts to you and give you the support to get your street legal Car on the road fast!  Stenten’s carries seat belts, light kits, windshields, mirrors, and virtually anything else you need to take your cart from the lawn to the grocery store.
