Golf Tips

Recommendations on the best ways to handle various lies:

Mountain golf has unique characteristics that may present challenges to golfers. For instance, an uneven lie requires two important adjustments.

  • Swing the club at a speed that allows you to stay in balance; this usually means slower and smoother than normal (70-80% of maximum).
  • Sole the club properly in order to minimize the effect of the hill.
  • Side Hill - Feet Below Ball
      • Choke down on the grip
      • Allow for a slight pull and/or hook
      • Play ball in the center of stance
      • Place weight on the balls of your feet
  • Side Hill - Feet Above Ball
      • Take more club than you feel is necessary
      • Play ball closer to your feet and in center of stance
      • Allow for slight fade
      • Place weight on the balls of your feet
  • Downhill
      • Set your body with the slope of the hill
      • Use one less club than normal
      • Move the club as parallel to the slope as possible
      • Allow for a low shot that may fade
  • Uphill
      • Set your body up with the slope of the hill
      • Use one club more than normal and choke down
      • Play ball in the middle of stance
      • Allow for a higher shot than normal that may be pull-hooked
