Couples Playing Golf

Couples playing golf together can be a great way to bond over a shared passion, but it's important to follow some guidelines if you want to avoid any unnecessary arguments on the green.

Listen up, all you lovebirds out there! If you're planning on taking your significant other out on the golf course, you better be prepared for what's in store. Golfing together as a couple can be a great way to bond over a shared passion, but it's important to follow some guidelines if you want to avoid any unnecessary arguments on the green.


Including her in your golf "world".


Now, some of you fellas might be thinking, "I'd rather not play golf with my wife. That's my time to escape from everyday life and hang with the boys." But hold up! If you're playing golf several times a week, that's a lot of hours away from home, including time away from your little ones. So, maybe it's time to include your leading lady in your golf world.

And for those of you who think golf is the one thing you can enjoy without your spouse interfering, think again. Golf is not just a guy's world anymore. Women can swing a club just as well as any man. So, why not let your wife join in on the fun? Trust me, you'll have a blast together.

At the end of the day, including your spouse in your golfing adventures can create lasting memories and strengthen your bond. So, grab your clubs and get ready for a hole-in-one relationship!


Why do I want to play golf with my husband?




If you're thinking about taking up golf just to impress your hubby, think twice! The last thing you want to do is force yourself to learn one of the most challenging games out there when you're not genuinely interested. Trust me, it'll only lead to frustration and eventually giving up.

On the other hand, if you're curious about golf and want to acquire a new skill, have fun discussing your hubby's rounds, soak up the fresh air, and spend more quality time together, then go for it! Who knows, your man might just be thrilled that you want to tee it up with him.


What if I learn and he won't play with me?


So you're taking up golf and your husband is giving you lessons, but then decides to ditch you and play with his buddies? Don't let that get you down! Join a local ladies' golf club or league and make some new golf friends.

One option is Women on Course, a fabulous group found in many Florida cities. I joined when I was new to golf and met some lovely ladies while playing rounds with other new golfers.

And who knows, once your husband sees how serious you are about the game and hears about your awesome rounds, he might just take a renewed interest in playing with you. After all, who else will laugh at all his jokes on the course, give him a standing ovation for his ever-amazing shots, offer words of encouragement after a bad shot, and brag about his incredible scores? You can be his new golf buddy!

Learning golf from my husband.


If your husband wants to teach you how to golf, give it a shot! It's a great opportunity to bond over a new activity that you both might enjoy. And who knows, you might even discover a hidden talent for the sport.

However, it's important to remember that golf is not an easy game to learn. Don't get discouraged if you struggle at first, and don't be afraid to seek out professional lessons to improve your skills. Trust me, you don't want to end up resenting your husband and the game because you're not enjoying it.

To all the husbands out there, if you want your wife to join you on the course, be patient and supportive. Encourage her to take lessons from a pro and don't pressure her to keep up with you or your golf buddies. Remember, golf can be intimidating for beginners, so make sure she feels comfortable and confident before hitting the links together.

Ultimately, golf can be a fun and rewarding activity to share as a couple, as long as you approach it with a positive attitude and a willingness to learn and grow together. So go out there and tee it up!


Everyone learns differently.


When teaching your wife how to golf, it's important to remember that women learn differently than men. They need to feel comfortable and confident to really excel at something. If you're not careful, you could end up making her feel frustrated and resentful.

So, if you want to help your wife become a great golfer, it's important to approach the lessons with patience and understanding. Don't get frustrated if she makes mistakes - after all, everyone makes mistakes when they're learning something new.

And above all, don't criticize her. Instead, focus on positive reinforcement and encouragement. Let her know that you believe in her and that you're there to support her every step of the way.

Remember, the goal isn't just to teach your wife how to golf. It's to enjoy the game together and to create a lasting bond through the shared experience. So take it slow, be patient, and have fun!


The best approach to teaching your wife to play golf.


Ah, the game of golf. It can be a great way to spend time with your spouse, but teaching them can be a whole other ballgame. That's why there's an old saying that goes something like this: "The best way to putt is to putt the way you putt best." Translation: Let your wife find her own way of doing things and give her the time she needs to groove her swing or stroke.

But wait, there's more! Here are a few other tips to keep in mind when teaching your spouse:

  • Be a cheerleader, not a critic. Focus on the positives and give her constructive feedback without constantly harping on what she's doing wrong.


  • Keep your cool, dude. Never raise your voice in frustration or make her feel like hitting a bad shot is the end of the world. Remember, it's just a game.


  • Give positive reinforcement. Point out the good things she's doing in her swing, rather than just telling her what she's doing wrong. Don't make it personal.


  • Relationship over being right. Remember, the goal is to enjoy the game together and spend quality time as a couple. Don't let your ego get in the way of that.


  • Teach pace. Make sure your wife doesn't feel rushed or pressured by other golfers. Golf is meant to be a leisurely game, after all.

So go forth and teach your spouse the game of golf, but do it with patience, positivity, and a sense of humor. Who knows, she might end up becoming your new go-to golf buddy!


It can be a make-it or break-it experience.


Golf can be a great way for couples to bond and enjoy time together. However, it is important to remember that everyone has their own style and approach to the game, and that's okay!

Rather than constantly giving unsolicited advice, couples should focus on respecting each other's unique approach to the game. This means allowing each other the space to play their own way without constant criticism.

Instead, take the time to appreciate your surroundings, the beauty of nature, and the satisfying "thwack" of the ball as it leaves your club. Focus on your shot, where you want the ball to go, and let your swing do the talking.

Don't be afraid to give your partner a high-five or a playful fist bump when they make a great shot. And ladies, don't be fooled into thinking that your man doesn't enjoy a little praise every now and then. Even the most skilled golfer can use a boost of confidence from their partner.

Spice up your golf game with some friendly competition. Whether it's a wager for a beer or a homemade dinner, find a way to incentivize your game. Get creative with your ideas and make sure it's something that both of you will enjoy.

My husband and I love to play match play and go all out on each hole. With 18 chances to win, things can get pretty heated, but we always remember to keep things positive and fun. Remember, at the end of the day, golf is just a game and the most important thing is to enjoy each other's company and the beautiful surroundings.

Ultimately, playing golf together can be a lot of fun!


When it comes to playing golf with your spouse, it's important to remember that you're not trying to win the green jacket at the Masters.

When things don't go your way, take a deep breath and let it go. Don't let a bad shot or a lost hole ruin your day. Instead, focus on the beautiful scenery around you and the joy of being out on the golf course with your loved one.

Relax, shrug off any bad shots, and keep smiling like you're auditioning for a toothpaste commercial.

Nobody wants to spend an entire round with an angry bear, so try to keep your emotions in check. Plus, why would you pay good money to be angry for hours on end? That's like paying for a root canal just for kicks.

Save your hard-earned cash and put it towards something more enjoyable, like a round of celebratory drinks after your stress-free and joyful game of golf with your honey.

Focus on the fun you will have together!


Instead of focusing on perfection and getting angry when things don't go as planned, try to enjoy the time you spend playing golf with your spouse. This is an opportunity to escape from work and other responsibilities and engage in a shared passion.

Even professional golfers have bad rounds, so it's important to keep a positive attitude and have fun on the course.

When you play golf with your spouse, there are many benefits to be had. You can talk for hours without any distractions, hit bad shots together and get frustrated, and celebrate good shots by cheering each other on.

Think of each golf round as a "date" with your favorite golf buddy, and use the opportunity to strengthen your bond and deepen your friendship.

Golf can bring you and your spouse closer together by allowing you to see each other's strengths and weaknesses and learn to appreciate them. After the game, you can reminisce about the great shots you each took and talk about your experience.

If your spouse needs help to improve her game, consider getting her lessons or providing resources like videos, books, or even clubs like the Cobra golf clubs, which can give her the confidence to play her best.

In my experience, the 3 and 5 wood clubs from Cobra are easy to use and help get the ball up in the air. While I used the Baffler clubs in the past, the newer versions are likely even better as they continue to improve upon their design. So, relax, have fun, and enjoy your time on the course with your spouse.
