CARLSBAD, Calif. (March 26, 2009) -- It's that time of the year. The skis and cold weather gear are getting stuffed into the proverbial closet, and you're making room in your trunk for the clubs. (I think you should have them there at all times, even if you're club offers storage - you never know when the chance to drop everything and play is going to come along...)
Invariably, the thought of improving some aspect of your game is going to be on your mind, whether you are trying to improve your tournament performance in 2009 or just wanting to play more consistently and get the cash flow going in the right direction when playing your buddies.
For those in the colder states who are starting extra late this year -- I grew up in Connecticut, so I feel your pain -- those first few rounds of Spring have been a long time coming. But as nice as it feels to be putting a peg in the ground again, golf sometimes has a cruel way of welcoming you back. Enough said.
This is the time that the equipment companies seize on our weakness and put the subliminal thought into our heads that we CAN buy a game. The latest driver is the quick fix. And as I like to say, it's easier to sell a $500 driver to someone who already has five of them!
But if you REALLY want to help kick the economy out of the doldrums, you've got to find more places to spend your money.
So with that being said, we're asking for five minutes of your time (just 25 multiple choice questions) to help us determine some of the golf companies we partner with, and some of the products we make available in our online store. Your product-awareness is a huge asset of the amateurgolf.com community and I promise when I say five minutes, I mean five minutes.
To make it worth your while, one lucky golfer will win a stay-and-play package at the luxurious CordeValle Resort, in San Martin California that includes an overnight stay and golf for two players. To take the survey now, click here>
