Golf is one of the greatest sports ever invented and can give you joy in your life for such a long time.
It’s a game where grandparents can play and compete against their grand-kids or you can go out on your own and play against yourself. It’s truly GREAT.
But it’s also incredibly difficult and can be hard to learn, if its approached the wrong way.
Everyone started playing golf somewhere and everyone was new at some stage to the game so don’t be worried because everyone was intimidated by the game at some stage too.
This little quick read is going to give you a guide on how to get started in golf.
What is Golf?
Golf is getting the ball from one place to another place while hitting it with a golf club.
It’s that simple really.
What do I need to learn??
You will need to learn how to hit the golf ball, that can be done in a driving range ideally with the help of a PGA pro to guide you.
After that everything else is easy.
What’s great about golf is that the worst player in the world can have as much fun as the best player.
After you’ve learned how to hit a golf ball the rest is up to you and what you want to get out of the game.
If you want to be a competitive golfer then you might need to put in some work and practice. You’ll need to learn some rules and probably get out and play with some serious golfers.
If you want to be a social golfer that’s perfect too, and it will take less work but you will still be able get out the same amount of fun.
How do I move from hitting the ball on the driving range to playing golf on the golf course?
- Firstly find some like minded people.
- Secondly remember that most golfers love helping new golfers.
- Thirdly get out and play small amounts. (at first the golf course is intimidating so small amounts help)
- Fourthly don’t try and learn it all at once there is simply too much to learn. Just try pick up one or two little things every time you play instead of trying to learn it all on your first try.
If any of this interests you go talk to a local golf pro ( or message me ) I’m sure they will be happy to help.
