So you may have chosen the first golf course you want to play on as a beginner but don’t have an inkling on how to book it.
Nowadays there are several options on how you can book the Punta Cana golf courses, for example, and enjoy the game on schedule. Here are 4 tips you can follow.
Check If It’s Private
The first thing to do is to make sure the golf course isn’t private in that it’s off-limits to the general public. You will want to check which courses allow public or guest play, or else you should look into another option.
If the course is semi-private, you’ll want to view the tee times and call them to see if there are any booking restrictions.
Choose How You Want to Book
Technology now allows you to book a golf course by phone or via the internet. You can also walk up, but this might be unproductive since you might be turned away.
Online or by phone are the best options, since you can check for tee times or ask questions. An additional fee might be charged for online booking but it’s more convenient and can be done anywhere you are.
Find the Right Timing
Tee sheet policies may differ in timing and schedule. Most municipal and local public courses put out theirs around a week in advance. For tourist play that may be 15 to 90 days. Resorts will need anywhere between 6 to 12 months advance booking.
The Right Course for Beginners
Some courses are better for beginners than others. You can get a sense of how challenging it is by checking the teeing options. Those that are between 4,500 to 5,000 yards are great, while executive and short courses offer the same experience. Lastly, you can also check golfer type and handicap on their website or by phone.
