If you’re new to the game or thinking about playing, getting started can seem a little daunting – but it doesn’t have to be. There are several easy steps that can take you through from your first few lessons to playing 9 or 18-holes and to then joining a golf club.

Here’s how you can start out as a beginner and end up as a golfer…
Sign up for a beginner course where you will meet new people and learn the basics of the game from a PGA professional.
Now that you have learnt the basics of the game, it’s time to head out onto the golf course with some friends and start playing a few holes. Before you know it you will be playing 9 and then the full 18 holes.
Now that you are playing you might want to consider becoming a member of a golf club. This will make it easier to meet new people you can play with at a time and level that suites you.
Build on the skills from your beginner course to help you improve and enjoy the game. This can either be another group-coaching course or one-to-one lessons with a PGA professional.
Many golf clubs have thriving sections of men, ladies, seniors and juniors who organise and run competitions, teams and social golf.
