  • Breaking barriers to playing golf

    By Darren deMaille

    For many reasons, people are intimidated to take up the game of golf. I relate it to myself as if I were to take a dance class, which is completely out of my element. I know nothing about dance. Putting myself on showcase on a dance floor in front of other people is not something that would be comfortable for me to do.

    For this reason I understand why people are intimidated to play golf or take a lesson. We have to get out of our comfort zone sometimes and put ourselves out there to experience different things and bring more enjoyment to life.

    One of the interesting aspects of coaching golf is that every week I am lucky to meet new people who come from various backgrounds and ways of life. Recently I have been teaching a very successful barbecue truck owner, a state legislator, a retired tennis player, a high school language teacher, a police officer, and most recently a postman who has a passion for building golf clubs.
