    Everything You Need to Know About Golf Course Etiquette

    Last updated 2 months ago

    Golf is one of the few sports without a referee or an umpire, so it is up to the players to practice the rules of the game. If you have not spent much time on the golf course, learning more about common course etiquette can help you feel more confident at the country club. Use this guide to learn course etiquette so you can focus more on improving your game.

    Basic Safety Considerations
    Although golf is not as fast-paced as other sports, there are plenty of potential safety hazards. You and the other players should always look around to ensure that no one is standing within swinging distance of your club before you take a shot. If you hit a ball that has the potential to hit someone, you should yell loudly to notify the individual.

    Have Respect for Other Players
    Make an effort to consider your fellow players whenever you are on the golf course. Do not use electronics like cellphones or iPods. Wait until it is your turn to play. Move away from your fellow player’s line when he or she is putting or making a stroke. Try to play at a comparable pace to your fellow players and always be ready to play when it is your turn.

    Follow the Proper Procedures for Lost Balls
    If you lose your ball, you and your group should let the group behind you play through until you are ready to begin your game again. If you believe that the ball is lost for good, you should use a different ball instead of wasting time looking for the first one.

    Fashion Mistakes to Avoid at Your Company Banquet

    Last updated 3 months ago

    A company banquet gives you the opportunity to impress your colleagues and clients with your out-of-office persona. If you want to make the best impression, you have to dress the part. Be sure to avoid the following fashion mistakes at your next corporate banquet so you can look your best.

    Over-the-Top Clothing
    At a corporate banquet, you want to draw attention to yourself because of your personality, and not because you are wearing a flashy outfit. Try to leave the sequins, bright colors, or super trendy outfits for another occasion. Keep your ties simple. For your corporate banquets, you should try to wear understated colors and patterns that look nice without drawing too much attention toward yourself.

    Sexy Outfits
    The office banquet is no place for low-cut tops, extremely tight dresses, or backless shirts. Try to stick to more conservative wardrobe choices that keep you covered and show off a respectable persona that will help you find new corporate success. If you feel like a shirt might be a little too revealing, put on a jacket or a sweater over it. Make sure your skirts are long enough and your clothing fits well without being too tight.

    Clothing that’s too Formal or Casual
    Before you choose an outfit for a corporate event, ask the organizers about the intended dress code. If an event is business casual, you do not want to show up in formal attire. Choose your clothing based on what others are wearing so you can fit in on the night of the actual event.

    If you are looking for the perfect location for your next corporate event, Chevy Chase Country Club is the venue for you. As one of the top event and wedding venues in Wheeling, IL, we give you everything you need to put together a great celebration.

    Breathing Exercises to Improve Your Golf Game

    Last updated 3 months ago

    Taking the time to breath can help you prepare for a shot and improve your entire golf game. If you feel off-balance, make the effort to take slower, deeper breaths in through your nose for three seconds and out through your mouth for another three seconds. Repeat the process until you feel more centered.

    Even one bad swing can negatively affect your entire game. Before you try to hit the ball, take a deep breath and visualize your desired outcome. Get more tips about improving your golf game in this video.
