Golf Resolutions for 2016

Submitted by Baywood Blog Team on January 8th, 2016

It’s that time of year again—time to make your list of resolutions for the New Year. Instead of making a list of unrealistic goals you’ll be tempted to break or ignore after a month or so, why not vow to improve your golf game in 2016?

Consider adding a few of these golf-inspired resolutions to your New Years resolutions for 2016:

Walk More, Ride Less: This year, consider walking between holes every once in a while instead of just hopping on the golf cart. According to recent studies by The Walking Golfer and Golf Digest, walking an 18-hole golf course burns almost 1500 alone. What a workout!

Strive to Become a Better Putter: Did you know that more strokes are made with a putter than any other club? It’s true! The putter is the only club that’s used at every hole. Therefore, it makes sense to get used to this rather useful club. In 2016, try to devote time to practicing long-range putts with your putter to improve your putting skills.

Take a Few Lessons: Get back to the basics by booking a few golf lessons with the pros here at Baywood Greens. They can help you fix your weaker, “problem" areas and improve your golf game!

Play More: As with any sport, the best way to see improvement in your golf game is simply by getting out on the course. After all, everyone knows that practice makes perfect! This year, commit to playing a few rounds with friends and family as often as possible. Make a plan, and stick to it!

Book your next tee time at Baywood Greens’ “Exclusively Public” 18-Hole Championship Golf Course today, and you’ll get the chance to discover one of the most spectacular golf courses on the East Coast!

Prepping Your Baywood Greens Home For Winter

Submitted by Baywood Blog Team on December 18th, 2015

Even though Delaware features a relatively mild winter when compared to the rest of the East Coast, there is still some wintry weather, such as snow and sleet, that heads our way. Taking the time to prepare your home now will keep you warm, toasty and worry-free throughout the winter. Here are 3 things you can do to prepare your home for winter:

Clean Your Roof - The best place to start your winter preparations is on the hardest to reach spot: the roof! Make sure that your home’s roof and gutters are clear of debris before any snow is expected. When snow starts to melt, it can accumulate in your gutters and potentially refreeze. This will cause the ice to dam up and possibly damage your roof, or cause flooding in your home. Be sure to take extra safety precautions while doing any work on the roof.

Maintain Your Pipes - The other main concern you should have this winter is protecting the pipes in your home. It’s very easy for pipes to freeze up and break under the pressure of the cold water. You can help prevent this by leaving cabinet doors open to help warm the pipes and covering exposed pipes with insulation sleeves. On especially cold days or days when you will be out of the house, keep a small trickle of water flowing through the faucet. This will help relieve water pressure in unheated or uncovered pipes.

Check Your Drains & Walkways – Make sure that your drains and walkways are clear of debris to prevent water from leaking into your home. Snow and ice accumulating on your walkways are hazardous and has the potential to seep into your home when it eventually melts. Remember to salt your walkways and create channels for water to flow out of when everything melts.
