Golf Pre-Season Drills, Exercises, & Workouts

Are you looking for guidance on how to maximize your time during the Golf Pre-Season? Today I’m excited to share several golf pre-season drills and exercises you can do to get back in golf shape for the upcoming golf season.

Here at Golf Practice Guides, the golf season runs from April to October. When April 1st arrives we want you to be up to speed and prepared to hit the links! We consider golf pre-season from January through March giving you 90 days to start gearing up with fitness and golf specific exercises.

When the season arrives, start it off right by following our 12 week golf practice plans.


If you start April 1st, you’ll be finished at the end of June. Each week consists of 3 golf practice routines to complete by following the exact drills and worksheets provided in the training program.

You can start and finish anytime but ideally you want to go hard at it for 12 consecutive weeks so you see the most improvement to your golf scores and consistent improvement month to month.

Here is a quick timeline of a game plan you can institute for the remainder of this month to get your golf game warmed up. Plus snag this skills assessment test to see where your skills stand currently.
