Don’t know how to play Golf? You have more than enough time to learn! Golf is one of the most popular sports. It is quite easy to take up and gives you the chance to have a great time outdoors and meet new people.

Here are some tips on getting you started:

Consider setting up an individual lesson, where a professional will go over the basics such as grip, stance, posture, and swing mechanics. Don’t fall into the temptation to allow your friends to teach you. While their intentions are good, they will do your golf swing more harm than good. Golf professionals know how to teach a golf swing, that’s why they are professionals. Get some lessons and learn properly.

Take some time to learn the rules of golf and the etiquette, as this is just as important as being able to hit the ball 300 yards (274.3 m). The game of golf is about honesty, honor and respect, not just hitting a ball around a grassy park.

Don’t walk in other peoples putting lines because it can disturb the grass and make putts go offline. Don’t talk when others are hitting. Don’t stand directly behind or in front of a player who’s swinging a club. Always dress appropriately and according to golf course rules. These are just some of the basics but as you play more you’ll learn the in’s & out’s of golf etiquette, and don’t be afraid to ask a seasoned golfer about a rule or an etiquette issue. They’re usually happy to help a beginner learn.

Go to a driving range a few times before you head out onto the course. Your aim is to be more confident in your club and shot selection, knowing the distances and average trajectory of the clubs you use is essential. Also, using the driving range before a round will give you an idea of how the weather is affecting your shot. Is it windy? Is the humidity making the ball heavy and affecting distance? Practicing at the range lets you find these things out without costing strokes.
