Not only do we want to make sure we have all the right equipment to play well, we want to make sure we have read up on all the latest tips and techniques to improve our performance…and so we turn to the books! Whether we’re a novice or experienced golfer, finding the right combination of thoughts and images becomes a full time job.

For the beginning golfer, there is “Naked on the First Tee” by Ann Kelly. Ms. Kelly relates to that ” Oh, everyone’s watching me” feeling! It’s a book that will boost the confidence of the new woman golfer, written by someone who knows how it feels. “Naked on the First Teeexplains parts of the game that other books don’t talk about, in language the beginner can understand.

As one becomes more proficient at the game, we quickly learn how the game can change from one day to the next and so we look for those survival guides. “GIRL’S ON-COURSE SURVIVAL GUIDE TO GOLF” by Christina Ricci is an informative, user-friendly and fun guide. It is written by a woman who started playing golf at 30 and lowered her handicap from 30 to 5 in five years.
