In an effort to keep up with the changing times, traditional golf clubs are changing the way people see golf as a sport. By making the experience more fun for the novice to the pro, not only does this make the sport a more family oriented means to enjoy the outdoors, but it also means greater revenue opportunities for the venue itself.The traditional country club of hushed tones and older men in colorful pants is a thing of the past. Where once there was whispers, let there be laughter and fun for all.
- A tiny, nine hole golf course, aptly called “the Cradle” has opened in North Carolina as part of the Pinehurst golfing resort.
- 789 long, the Cradle is a par-three course, immensely popular and almost always packed.
- Unlike more traditional courses, the Cradle is meant to attract and be used by families, old and young, and beginners to the game.
“Golf resorts in top destinations—from Pinehurst to Cabo San Lucas—are breaking with tradition, offering players of all skill levels quicker, more playful ways to tee off.”
