Spring is a Time for Golf

More and more people are turning to golf as a way to keep fit and get out of their homes. What better way to do this than to take advantage of Golfing Magazine New England’s Course Play Stimulus Program and play all the golf you desire.
Despite the fact that some of us in New England were fortunate enough to get out on the courses during what can only be described as an unusually mild winter with little snow and ice, spring is still a splendid time to reboot the game and prepare for months of fun and competition. And is there anything that smells as sweet as freshly mown grass on a sunny spring morning?

Golfing Magazine is making it easier for readers to “Play Golf for Less” this year with our celebrated “Free Golf” program that entitles an individual signing up for an annual subscription to the magazine the opportunity to play free or reduced rate golf at over 120 of the top daily fee courses and private tracks in the region.
We have worked to enhance our course list for 2023 and your subscription promises to be worth more than ever. We believe we are going beyond giving lip service to “growing the game” by offering this program. There’s a lot of talk about getting more people out to play the game, we do something about it!
To take advantage of this tremendous offer, call 860-563-1633, or visit
www.FreeGolf.net. Remember, you get four issues of our digital magazine in addition to discounted rounds of golf when you subscribe.

In this issue of Golfing Magazine we talk with Howie Friday, head golf professional at New Britain, Ct.’s Stanley Golf Course and get the lowdown on the new range that opened there this spring. It’s a high tech affair powered by Toptracer technology and promises to be jam packed as it is a year round facility. It’s for serious and occasional golfers alike.
We check out the enormous growth of Chris Cote Golf, one of the premier equipment purveyors in the region that also offers top notch custom club fitting at its several locations in Connecticut.

We tell you about the private golf courses that you can access trough Golf Stimulus Program, a nice added bonus for signing up this year. And, we check out the nine-hole courses that are included in our program.
We also highlight some of the golf resorts in the New England States and we take you on road trips through the state of Rhode Island.

We also have a line-up of some of our favorite instructors in the area to get you ready for golf this season. Sue Kaffenburg of Bayberry Hills Golf Course in Yarmouth, MA and New England PGA Teacher of the Year gives thoughts on how to make The Pause That Refreshes.
