Try  a Different Approach!
Sure, you golf, but have you ever tried Disc Golf? Disc Golf is a flying disc sport in which players throw a disc at a target, and is played using similar rules as golf. You can play at the 18 whole, 60 par disc golf course at the J. Frank Wilson Park in Martinsville and even download a scorecard from the City of Martinsville’s website.
