The Unwritten Rules of Golf Explained

Submitted by Baywood Blog Team on August 15th, 2016

If you’re just starting to play golf, take it from us – you’re going to love it! Here at Baywood Greens, we pride ourselves on having one of the most amazing golf courses around and love to spread the word to newcomers! Before you get out on the course, there are many “unwritten” rules of golf to be aware of:  

Avoid the putting line.
The putting line is that invisible line between the golf ball and the hole when a golfer is putting. This rule is a courtesy as to not mess up your playing partner’s shot. In addition, if your shoes have spikes, it could ruin the trail to the hole. 

Since golf is not an especially easy sport, any type of noise can throw off a golfer’s shot. Mind the group that you are with and be courteous of others on the course by talking in between shots and not during a back swing.

Let faster groups go ahead.
If you know that your group is going to take a little longer than most, let the group in front of you go first. This way, you won’t be rushed and other groups won’t be waiting.

Don’t poke fun.
It is not uncommon to whiff a ball every now and then, especially when just starting out. Make a point to not mock your golf partners, and only give advice when asked. This will keep everyone’s moods in check and ensure a friendly game. 

Make sure to alert any golfers of wayward balls so that no one goes home with a concussion. Although golfing is a fun and safe sport, it always helps to take safety precautions. 

Clean up your mess.
Always attempt to leave the course the way you came upon it. This means no trash is to be left behind, and always replace divots and rake the bunkers for the next group.

Please don’t move.
Just like noises can mess up someone’s swing, movement and shadows can also have an effect. Make sure your shadow is not in the way of a shot and just stand still if you can help it. 

Now that you know some unwritten rules of golf, you’re ready to enjoy a nice round with your buddies at Baywood Greens! For more information on our award-winning golf course, visit baywoodgreens.com/golf.

Tips for Hosting an End of Summer Party at Baywood Greens

Submitted by Baywood Blog Team on August 15th, 2016

With Labor Day around the corner and school about to start, you need to make the most of the rest of your summer at Baywood Greens! Now is the perfect time to host an end of the summer party at your Baywood Greens home. Whether you own one of our beautiful homes or decided to rent a home, it’s a great place to host friends and family. Here are some tips for throwing an end of summer party!

Size: The first thing you want to do is determine how many people you want to invite. Our open floor plans and spacious kitchens offer plenty of space for guests! Figuring out how many people you want to invite with also help determine how much food to buy, and how many seats you have available.

Food: Once you’ve figured out the guest list, its time to plan the most important part of the party: the food! If there are several people coming, keep it simple with appetizers and snacks for people to munch on. Set up the drinks on a bar cart or free counter space so people can fix their own drinks. If it’s going to be a more intimate gathering, you can decide to fix food for everyone or have a potluck style party, where everyone brings a dish!

Decorations: It’s the end of the summer, so have some fun with small decorations for the party! Use brightly colored cups and plates, or string up some lights. If you want to make it even more memorable, choose a theme for the party. A fun summer theme, such as a Hawaiian luau, will make your party memorable for years to come!

Games: If you’re looking to have a more lively party, set up some games prior to guests arriving. Some of our favorite summer games are horseshoes or cornhole, which allow multiple people to get involved and play. To make it even more competitive, keep track of everyone’s scores and set up a tournament! Make sure to have a few seats set up for those who aren’t playing so they can still watch and cheer people on!

Memories: Summer is the best time to make memories with friends and family. Remember this summer party by taking lots of pictures! Try to get pictures with all of your guests and even take a group shot.
