The CWGA held it’s annual Experience at CommonGround today. This is an event which includes golf skills instruction by professional instructors in driving, chipping and pitching, and putting. This year they added a new section for rules and etiquette.
I wanted to attend, but I didn’t get signed up in time. The event regularly sells out, though I should have taken the advice of a friend and just showed up and paid. But, I played a round this morning in my league, and we didn’t finish soon enough.
I really enjoyed talking with the CWGA staff and some of the participants. Folks really get a lot out of the instruction here. I did participate last year, and I still use some of the techniques I learned, mostly for chipping. I’ll make sure I get signed up on time next year!
