How to celebrate a golf lover's day on golf lover's day

Golfers in several areas of the country are on the links all year round. However, golfers in the more northern regions will close due to cooler weather, which has discouraged golfers from attempting the elusive hole-in-one. While you can, get out and golf a round or two. Invite friends to join you. Visit a course you've never been to before. Challenge yourself to a more challenging path. Improve your handicap or hire someone to teach someone the game.

No matter what you do, include someone else in your endeavors. It's important to include others in those moments when we #CelebrateEveryDay. Play a round of golf with your family and enjoy a round of golf. If you're celebrating, be sure to shout out your favorite dishes. They may be the most difficult or the ones where you've made outstanding memories. Share a video of your best shot and final score.

You can also look at Golf History. To post on social media, use the hashtag #GolfLoversDay.
