So you want to learn how to play golf? Congratulations! Golf is one of the most personally rewarding sports around. It is a lifetime sport that can be enjoyed for years and years to come, providing countless hours of fun and relaxation by yourself or with your friends. It is also one of the most difficult sports to learn to play well.

Golf has a reputation as being difficult to learn. Like any sport, there are fundamentals of technique and form that must be mastered for any level of proficiency to be attained, and you have to have the right equipment. Those who report frustration in learning how to play golf are the ones who jump right out onto the course without ever bothering to study the basics of the game first. If you do this, you can enjoy a lifetime of personal satisfaction and develop a true love of the game.

Beginning to Learn How to Play Golf

When you want to learn how to play golf, the first thing you'll need is the right equipment. Go out and get yourself a set of golf clubs. A basic set contains woods, irons, wedges, and a putter. If you're just starting out, you don't need to buy the top of the line, most expensive set. You'll soon discover that each person has particular difficulties and you might want to later buy individual clubs designed to help you overcome these problems. You might later want to buy a hinged club, for example, to help you improve your drive if that's where your problem lies.

The next thing to do to learn how to play golf is to get some training. Private lessons are probably the best way to learn. If you can't afford private lessons, there are many teaching aids out there to help. Invest in a training manual or educational video to help teach you the basics of grip, stance, and swing you'll need to develop a solid game. Congratulations again, you're on your way to a lifetime of rewards and enjoyment of this great game.
