Golf Instruction For Seniors (50+)Helping seniors disrupt decline, enjoy, and stay in the game.
The Golf Instruction For Seniors Program Called “Rockers” at Renditions Golf Course in Davidsonville, MD
Golf instruction for seniors is a great way to learn, improve, and stay in the game. Not only that, it’s economical too. This age-specific program at Renditions is nicknamed “Rockers”. And its gives seniors 50+ years old a great way to begin learning the game, improve a declining game, and/or maintain an overall ability to stay in the game for a lifetime. Therefore if you are at least 50, you are welcomed at any of our seniors’ sessions. Try it out!
The History Of This Unique Senior Instruction Program
In 2009 a member of a local women’s golf league, created a small group to learn and improve together. This founding member is still attending sessions and thriving on the golf course. Over the past 10 years, we’ve coached hundreds including Senior Olympic medalists as well as MSGA tournament champions. Over the years, we’ve celebrated many career rounds. Members have connected to play and form new friendships. Despite beginning as a 60 and over women only group, we dropped the age floor to 50. During the formative years, a few husbands mildly “complained about feeling left out”. Therefore, the group opened up to men and are still welcomed today.
Why The Rockers Program Is Age-Specific
Golf instruction for seniors can be challenging. Of course, seniors do not move or remember information as well as when they were younger. Therefore, they sometime struggle to manage their body when swinging a club. Although younger people also struggle with decline, it seems like golfers experience far greater challenges once they reach 50. At the same time, this group enjoys time freedom and has a greater social interest in playing golf. Despite being a game which can be challenging at any age, older golfers seem to experience a steeper learning curve. Therefore, more frequent instruction is recommended. But that costs more, right? That’s why we offer golf instruction for seniors at deep discounts. We make it more affordable for seniors to get the most out of a game they love.
