Balls, Clubs and Love??? … Golf Tips for Celebrating Valentine’s Day

January 30, 2012: Sycuan Golf & Tennis Resort understands ‘golf romance’ and how to treat sweeties to a day on the course…and tagging along. Can you play your lie? Know where to park your cart? Ready to talk it up? After polling our golfers, instructors and staff, here’s the top tips of what to do:

1. Golf jokes are made for laughing, so do. Except if they can’t hit the ball.
2. Offer snacks liberally; a full golfer is a happy golfer.
3. Let your sweetheart drive the cart. At least it’ll get them off the green.
4. Compliment them. Often. Even if they’re back in the bunker for the fifth time.
5. Be courteous and don’t ever drive past the ladies tee box.
6. NEVER give unsolicited advice.

“We provide golf instruction of all sorts…even when it comes to affectionate game moves helping mates understand the basics of golfing togetherness,” said Bob Madsen, PGA, Director of Instruction at Sycuan Golf & Tennis Resort. “Even if those couples aren’t matched in skill, we can help. Couples that play together, stay together and learning the basics can help cement that golf-bond.”

When one night together just isn’t enough, Sycuan offers their “Couples Retreat Package” for a full weekend of golfing fun.

Ultimate Romance Package Contest
Sycuan is also launching a contest around their “Ultimate Romance Package.” Couples submit their creative stories of how they met to win a free overnight stay at the resort and a private dinner for two at the Sycuan Café Grill. The romantic menu includes a full-course dinner of exotic aphrodisiac foods and two glasses of champagne to kick off the evening in style. “It was a creative idea with the romantic holiday in mind. Why not use aphrodisiacs as a way to entice our guests to come in and enjoy a romantic setting? It’s risqué and appealing at the same time,” said Sycuan’s award-winning Chef, Augie Saucedo.
