    Golf beginner - where to start and what do I need?

    Post  MICHAEL55 on Thu Jan 29, 2009 10:31 am

    I've been thinking about taking up golf over the last couple of years. Other than going to the driving range and making an ass of myself with my friends or playing mini golf, I am new to the game. I know the rules, terminology, just need to learn how to develop and refine my swing.

    And I also need to know what kind of equipment I need.

    Also, what is the best way to get decent discounts on green fees?

    The first time you go out golfing, asked an experienced golfer with you to be brutal about your etiquette:

    Fixing ballmarks
    Talking/moving
    Ready golf vs whose turn is it
    Picking up tees
    Taking extra shots
    Slowing down the group
    Line of sight distraction
    Searching for lost balls
    Walking across putting line
    etc etc.......

    Take a few golf lessons to get the fundamentals down pat for starters.

    It's much easier to learn the right way than to uncorrect your wrong doings once they are habit from prematurely playing on courses and going to driving ranges without the proper instruction first.
