Getting started in Golf
When you play golf you enter a world of fun, excitement, challenge and friendship that is currently enjoyed by some 300 000 people in South Africa
Golf is a remarkably easy game to learn and enjoy. With a basic set of clubs, a qualified teacher and some time for practice, you'll be quickly on your way to having some great times on the golf course.
Your local PGA professional is the best person to teach you to play golf. You'll learn not only how to swing your clubs, but what equipment to buy, when you need to buy it and all you need to know about the rules and etiquette of the game.
You don't need to own clubs before you start taking lessons. Most professionals will lend or rent them to you.
Many people have found golf to be more than a game; for them it's an activity that provides not only relaxation but mirrors life's challenges and how we deal with them.
Top South African golfer, Ernie Els states: "Golf really is a game for the whole family. There aren't many sports where mom, dad and the children can spend a couple of hours together enjoying the fresh air and getting some exercise - and there's nothing to stop grandparents joining in either. You're never too old or too young to start".
