"You have to be the kind of person who has a lot of passion and a lot of compassion. You have to be the kind of person who truly wants to make this a better world." -Renee Powell
It was a really busy month for FTL and we’re so excited to roll out all the new things to you. We asked on IG stories what you wanted out of this newsletter and we heard you loud and clear! This month we’ll be sharing our favorite drills and some of our usual recommendations.
A few of you also asked for ways to find women in your area to tee it up with, soooo we’re going to make a directory! Sign up for the Fore the Ladies Tee Sheet, and on a regular basis we’ll share the directory with those who sign up so you can find ladies in your area to tee it up with all season. And if you host your own outing, maybe FTL will send some swag for the group! Sign up here.
The Lily | Pinehurst Resort | March 5-7
We’re about a month away until The Lily! If you haven’t heard or have been hibernating the last few weeks, we announced our first golf getaway with Pinehurst Resort (yes theeee Pinehurst Resort, home of U.S. Open championships, including where Michelle Wie won!). The package includes golf, hotel accommodations, food and beverage and some awesome add-ons (Pinehurst Brewery tasting anyone?!). We can’t wait to hang out with y’all there!
Fore the Ladies Intro-to-Golf Clinics: Pinehurst | Washington D.C. | Philadelphia | Atlanta
Fore the Ladies Intro-to-Golf Clinics are back! We’ll be hosting all clinics at outdoor facilities and they’ll include a little bit of instruction, plenty of bevs, tee gifts and hangs. We’ll be rolling out more of these, so keep an eye on our events page.
Washington D.C. Registration (note: The link says “private” but you’re in the right place!)
See you soon and be safe!
One of my favorite instructors for drills and tips is Trillium Rose. I’m fascinated by her interest and dedication to understanding how people learn, gain and adapt skills. Impressively, she went to Columbia University and got a Master's Degree in Motor Learning and Control. She has a number of videos for indoor drills specifically, which is helpful to those of us stuck indoors until spring. - sara
Do I need another hat? NO, but I definitely want this one. It's made so you can wear your hair in a high pony or bun and still wear a hat. - brooke
During my WTF is Golf Course Architecture podcast with Andy Johnson, he mentioned the Formby Ladies Club, a golf club in England that has 350+ female members. No Laying Up produced a fantastic piece about the club’s history, the course and membership. - abby
Ladies of Golf: Marina Alex
This week we welcomed professional golfer Marina Alex to the podcast! We talked about the Solheim Cup, what it means to feel comfortable on Tour, her first win, using her voice on social media and more.
Ever roll up to the course, get ready to hit the range and realize you need to find a place for all of your jewelry? I hate having to put mine in a valuables pouch or a bigger pocket. Stephanie Gottlieb made this “arm candy” band with a zipper to hold all of your jewelry and I will be wearing every day at Pinehurst. Her website is being redone but I found some on Poshmark.
A tip for tips: Whenever I see a tip or drill that looks interesting, I save it to my Golf folder, and then when I have a practice session I will pick one or two to work on. Some of my favorite accounts are @nattiegolf, @trillium_rose and @erikalarkingolf. - sara
I've been making these date balls as an alternative to my not so healthy afternoon habit of a handful of bittersweet chocolate chips straight from the bag. - brooke
Abby coined the term "slip slops" for these fuzzy flip flop/slipper mashups, and I couldn't resist. Since I am still working from home, these have become my new go-to for WFH fashion. - sara
