The first thing you will need to do is go to a pro. golf shop and book some lessons, explain that you are a beginner. The pro. will arrange a time to have your first lesson, he/she will probably recommend you having 4 to 5 lessons which is what you will need. You will be given just a few instructions at each lesson. Make sure to have plenty of practices between each lesson.
After 4 or 5 lessons and plenty of practices venture out on to the golf course and maybe start off by playing as some beginners do play 5 or 6 holes to begin with and then gradually build up to playing 9 and so on, don’t force yourself to play more holes than you want to. Always be watching other players playing the game they might remind you of the lessons you received from the pro.
There are some fantastic golf books and videos now on the market. The videos can be great especially the pro. Videos. You can see in action the exact dos and don’ts being demonstrated by a golf professional. You don’t have to wait a number of days to have the video delivered to you by the postman. All you have to is download it there and then. Another suggestion is to watch the professional golf tournaments on the telly you will pick up some fantastic tips on the game. As for buying golf magazines yes they can have some great topics on the game including good tips and offers but for me they work out far too expensive.
There are also some great Golf Tuition Holidays. They cater for individuals, and groups. Sometimes they include. Playing and video lessons. 2 to 5 day courses. Some unique beginners programmes and with professional trainers. They could make for a great holiday,
• Don’t spend too mush money on clubs starting out.

• How long before I will be able to play good golf.
• Answer: It all really depends on your commitment to the game and practice.
Set realistic goals for yourself to start with. Don’t rush the game or you might find yourself giving it up before you even start.
• Can I buy golf clubs on the internet?
Answer: Yes you can, the internet is becoming very popular for buying golf clubs, with such a wide range on offer and great prices. But not at the start. I suggest as in the article purchase a second hand set or small number of clubs. When you get to fully understand and like the game then is time enough to make the purchase of a new and more expensive set.
• Where can I purchase a golf rule book?
Answer: Most professional golf shops attached to a golf club will supply rule books.
• As soon as I start playing on the golf course would I be better just paying green fees or join a particular golf club?
Answer: Depends after the lessons and practice you have commenced playing on the course
and decided to continue, then you could consider joining a club as green fees can become very expensive if you play regularly. But of course it depends also on the fee to join the club. You will have to work that out for your self.
