Spring is in full swing and golf season is right around the corner! The Incline Village Golf Courses are projected to open mid to late may, weather and conditions permitting, so get ready for the season and start working on your swing.

If you haven’t been keeping up on your stretching, now is the time to start. Tension is the enemy when it comes to your golf swing. Start with a few minutes of light cardio to warm up your muscles then spend a few minutes stretching each of these key areas: neck, shoulders and sides.

Work on strengthening your core by lifting weights. Or for a simple approach you can do basic sit-ups, crunches, and planks at home.

Start working on your swing but start small as you don’t want to pull any muscles. Start with shorter swings and short approach irons, working your way up to longer irons, fairway woods, and your driver. Looking for a place to hit some balls?

The Championship Golf Shop now has an indoor hitting net and Swing Caddie portable launch monitor. This new gadget provides instant feedback via a LCD display including your carry distance, swing speed, ball speed, and smash factor.

Take inventory of your golf gear and equipment as it may be time to invest in some new clubs or golf clothes. Our staff is happy to help you pick out clubs and golf attire and we’re having a big Swing into Spring Sale now.

You can also demo the latest clubs from Titleist, Taylormade, Ping, Callaway, Adams or try out different grips, shaft flexes and lofts with our fit carts.

The Championship Golf Shop is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. this spring so stop by or give us a call and we’ll help you get ready for another great golf season.

Robyn Bradford, PGA, is head golf professional at the Mountain Golf Course. Visit or call 775-832-1146 for information or to reserve hitting times.
