Many golf players could improve their game dramatically if they spent a bit of time working on their putting. The stance is very important—you should keep your knees slightly bent and your feet and shoulders parallel. Aim for the apex, which is the highest point of the green between you and the flagstick. When you’re ready to hit, swivel your shoulders back and forth. Watch this video clip for more tips on how to improve your putting.

Picking up a golf club for the first time can be a daunting task for a child. However, if you are supportive and patient, you can ensure that your child enjoys playing golf. Continue reading for a list of tips that will help you get your child started in golf.
Make It Fun
If you want your child to enjoy playing golf, see to it that he or she is always having fun. If your child is frustrated, remind him or her that golf is a game, and it should be enjoyed. Starting out, your child may not find golf as entertaining as you do—and that’s okay. To help your child have fun, keep your own mood lighthearted and don’t force your child to play for longer than he or she wants to.
Explain the Rules
Before your child picks up a club, you can begin to teach him or her the basic rules of golf. You won’t need a ball or a club to do this. Explain to your child that he or she must respect the rules in order to fully enjoy the game with other players. Be sure to also go over basic golf etiquette with your child to ensure that he or she can uphold golf’s rich traditions.
Locate a Nice Golf Course
Once your child is aware of the core values of golf, it’s time to look for a golf course. Look for an 18-hole golf course with good rates and a golf shop. If you are a regular golfer, you may want to find a country club with a reserved tee time club that offers discounts and privileges for joining. Be sure to ask what the junior hours are, as some clubs set aside specific times for children and families.
If you are looking for a quality golf course for your child, come to Chevy Chase Country Club. Our family-friendly, 18-hole golf course sits on 125 acres of rolling greens in Wheeling, IL. For more information, visit our website or call us at (224) 900-2036.

Planning a wedding can be daunting, especially if you are determined to make it an unforgettable event. Fortunately, it only takes a few minutes to gather the inspiration you need to make your wedding fabulous. Here is an overview of some of the most popular wedding trends for this year.
The Color Pink
If implemented in moderation at a wedding, pink looks fantastic. Be sure to pay heed to the hue, as the wrong shade of pink can turn your wedding into a visual disaster. Look for pink in peachy, blush, nude, or pastel shades for your wedding.
Some weddings use roses and other classic bouquets, but many of the stylish weddings this year are implementing the multi-pedaled tree peony. Garlands are popular, too, especially fern garlands and citrus garlands with oranges, limes, or lemons on the stem.
Set the bar high for your wedding and choose a unique design for your invitations. The standard 5”x7” invitation is becoming less common—more people are opting for something smaller. If you are artistically inclined or know someone who is, you can add a custom sketch or design to your wedding invitations. This wedding trend will set the tone for your event.
Spicy Menu, Shiny Cake
Wedding planners have noticed that 2014 is a spicy year for the wedding menu. Spice things up for your wedding by making sriracha and fresh chili oil available to your guests. Cakes this year tend to be sparkly—you can make yours shine with edible fine glitter on the top tiers.
Choosing an idyllic location for your wedding is as easy as reserving a space at Chevy Chase Country Club of Wheeling, IL. With our outdoor patio, 6,000-square-foot dance floor, and vintage bar area, we are a premiere destination for both ceremonies and wedding receptions.
