FITNESS-TIPwebRyan-FishWinter Fitness Tips

Winter is a challenging time to work out, follow these tips to make it easier:

Set a goal
In winter it is too easy to forget about your goals and commitments. Write down a goal that works for you and then tell everyone about it, then there is no way out of it.

Don’t get cold
Don’t walk around in sweaty clothes, take a shower ASAP after your work out. If you are sweaty you will get cold and that’s when the colds and flu can attack.

Try a new workout
If you are lacking inspiration at this time of the year, try something new. Sometimes we need to shake up our workout routine a bit to get new inspiration and motivation.

Exercise outdoors during the day
In winter we have beautiful sunny days so get outside and enjoy the fresh air. It is good for both your outsides and insides!

Get some rest
Make sure you get your snooze hours every night. If your body feels run down and exhausted it is probably time for a recovery week with less exercise and a massage instead.

coursecarediviotRepairing Balls Marks

A handy tip when repairing ball marks is to repair your own, as well as one additional ball mark.

This will aid in the greens’ recovery and assist in maintaining superb putting surfaces on both The Pines and The Palms golf courses.

This combination of features at Huntingdale ensures this course challenges the best professionals and the latest technology.

Players hitting wayward shots to the far side of the greens can anticipate long undulating putts. The final stretch of holes contains some of the toughest and finest finishing holes in the world.
