5 Pro Golf Tips For Beginners

Everyone spends their free time in different ways, but today more and more talk about the benefits of outdoor activities. Many people try to the best of their ability, physical and material, to join active leisure. For some, this is a visit to the fitness room and work on simulators, others prefer a trip to the countryside with indispensable barbecue or cycling and hiking, while someone is engaged in landscaping the countryside.

And very few of us have already joined one of the most interesting games – golf. This is the only game that attracts people of all ages. Let me explain why. The best part is – It’s not necessary for the game to wait for someone to join you – you can play it by yourself. The game is active, dynamic, exciting, but it does not require serious physical preparation. Not every older person or one with poor health can afford to run or do heavy loads, and golf is shown to everyone without exception. Each game is a few hours in the fresh air, and up to 7 km of average distance traveled. At the same time, all joints get a good workout, and time flies by!

When Are You Ready to Start Playing Pro

So, now that you have a few clubs and you have acquired basic knowledge of swing, you are considering trying yourself on a golf course. Great, but that doesn’t mean that you have to go to the field where the players are playing. If you want your initial golf experience to be positive, you need to really assess your capabilities and then strive to expand them. The below-mentioned tips must be remembered in this regard:

Start Small

Golf is a rather difficult game unless of course, you take eight hits to get on the green. Begin with a par-3 field or with a shortened (“executive”) 9-hole field before conquering an 18-hole tournament field. On the par-3 field, all holes are three-pair and each less than 180 meters long.

The “executive” has several par-3 holes, and the par-4 and par-5 holes are shorter than those on the tournament field. Give yourself the opportunity to acclimatize to these fields before entering full-size. Par is the number of strokes for which an upscale golfer is expected to complete a game in a separate hole or on the entire field.

Green (Putting Green) – the area with the shortest grass directly around the hole specially prepared for putting (short, final game on the hole). Mostly maintained by Jacobsen golf course mowers.

Fairway (Fairway) – a section with short trimmed grass, occupying most of the playing field between tee and green.

Rough is the part of the golf course surrounding fairways with tall, dense grass or untouched natural vegetation.

Play Three Holes

Playing golf requires the athlete to have sufficient stamina and you must prepare yourself for 18 holes. Consider starting out with three holes on a nine-hole course in a time when there are fewer golfers on the field so that you don’t hold anyone back. Play as long as it’s fun. You can continue on another day.

Choose a Suitable Field

Do not start your golf journey with difficult fields that will make you upset before you even get to the first green. A good field for beginners is a flat, short field, on which there are few obstacles or places such as bunkers or bushes that need to be cut to get on fairways. You will still have plenty of time to test yourself in difficult fields, but first, take the opportunity to get positive emotions.

Play From Comfortable Tees

Pacify your ego and start from shorter tees. Tee (Tee ground) – a platform on the field with which the game begins on each hole. Playing on a field five to six kilometers long will save your time, preserve the nervous system and a considerable number of balls.

Final Tip –  Stick to the Pace of the Game

Most golf courses will ask you to complete the 18 holes round in four and a half hours, but you can play even faster. One way to maintain a good pace is to limit yourself to a certain number of strokes per hole. For example, a maximum of seven strokes per hole. If you are a beginner golfer, there is nothing wrong with raising your ball if you do not want to delay your partners. And rest assured, they will appreciate it.
