The question is; are you ready to improve your golf game? There are plenty of tips for golf beginners to follow, but just trying to implement every one of the tips could easily lose you in the sheer number. There is no question that golf is fun for the beginner to the advanced. How you spend you time on the course will determine if you are going to enjoy your day or not.

These tips for golf beginners will help to take you to the next level of game play.

1. Have you ever heard the phrase, “Practice makes perfect.” Great advice. And it does not always have to be on the golf course. Practice your golf swing in your back yard, minus the golf ball so you do not break the neighbors windows. Get a feel for your swing. Adjust your handgrip on the golf club. Vary your stance. Spend some time at the driving range, this is cheap practice compared to a round of 18 holes. You will not get upset at missing a shot when it really does not matter.

2. What ever you do when learning to play golf is do not go out and spend a lot of money on the best, hottest set of golf clubs available. When learning to play, they will not make that much if any difference in your game. Once you get a feel for your swing, stance and your style of play you will be able to make an informed purchase. I know you want look fly on the course, but resist the urge.

3. This is the most important tip for golfer, beginners and pros alike. HAVE FUN. It is always amazing how golfers ruin a perfectly good day getting worked up over a bad shot or a missed putt. Golf is a game that should be played for the enjoyment of it.

Once you start playing golf it will become addicting, but the pure enjoyment will make every game, every swing, every putt worth the time and effort your spent in learning the game of golf.

    I am a golf addict. I love the game. Have been playing for over 30 years now.

    I appreciate you point about making having fun a priority. Too many forget it is just a game and vent their frustration and anger in a immature manner.

    I am on a mission to break 80. Wanna join me?

    Here’s to better golf.

    The greatest physical benefit to playing golf is getting exercise from walking. Walking for 18 holes is often the equivalent of walking 3-to-4 miles. This gets the golfer’s heart going and blood pumping. It is a stimulating if not rigorous activity. Golfer who play three or four times a week are getting quite a bit of exercise.
