Golf is a sport that you don’t immediately fall in love with, but something that you gradually develop a taste for once you start following it. My bet is that you probably developed a taste for the game after visiting the driving range or after following it on television or maybe just after playing Golden Tour slot machine at an online casino. But you are probably wondering how to get started with the game as most beginners do not have a clue as to how the game is played. That which extremely simple on television can actually turn out to be quite a tricky sport where one has to keep a lot of factors in mind in order to start playing. Many people are deceived by the outward simplicity of the game and think that they can pick it up without any formal training and coaching. After all how tough can it be to hit a ball with a club right? Well the first thing one should keep in mind is that golf is an extremely technical sport and cannot be picked up without any training.

If you are planning to pick up golf then the first thing that you should do is enrol yourself for the training classes. Most decent golf courses and driving ranges have professional teachers and coaches who can train you right from the start regarding the basics of the game. One can opt for full time or part time classes and can also learn in a group in order to save up money as learning fro a private coach can be quite an expensive affair. Having enrolled yourself in a training class the next step that one should pay attention to is buying a set of clubs. A golfer depends on the clubs in the game and a good set of club can make all the difference in the game. There are a lot of factors that have to be kept in mind while buying a set of clubs. First of all one has to finalize a budget as a club set comes quite expensive in the market. In order to start off, one can always go for a second hand pair of clubs. The first set of clubs used by a person are often the ones that get most damaged. Hence it will be a good idea to first use a second hand set and develop the knowledge of the game. Having once gained experience one can decide on the type of clubs one wants to buy.

It is not necessarily for a beginner to buy a full set of club. One can start with a few basic clubs such as 3 wood, 9 iron, 5, 7, sand wedge and a putter. It is very important to get a set of clubs that fit your arms well. One has to pay attention to the grip, the length of the club and the weight. If one of this is wrong then the whole club goes off balance and so does your swing. After having bought your clubs, one should pay close attention to the rules for the game. One can always seek help online and learn the nuances of the game. Golf is a very technical game and one must have a thorough understanding of how the game works in order to master the game. And the last step and final advice is to practice the sport as much as you can. There are no shortcuts to any game and golf is no exception. So practice hard and sky is the limit for you.
