Why start with golf

Before we get into how you could start playing golf, allow us to give you some insight as to why others play golf.


The main reason is because playing golf is a lot of fun. It is a lot of fun because you can play golf anywhere with anyone. Golf has a system in place that allows players of all levels to play with each other. It is called the World Handicap System (WHS).


There are many ways to play the game, for instance, some more serious and some more fun. And Golf can be played either as a team or individually. And no 2 golfcourses in the world are the same. Which makes each golfcourse a different challenge and experience.


And of course, golf is very good for your health.

Playing a round of golf can help improve your cardiovascular health and help you lose weight. Golf is also an excellent way to enhance your strength and flexibility. Playing golf can improve your overall fitness level and reduce your risk of developing health problems. Assuming you walk the course (and don’t take a golf cart), you can quickly burn over 2000 calories by playing 18 holes.

Issues to consider

We believe that you will derive most fun in golf when you feel confident on and around the golf course.

For that to happen we advise you to take the time to understand the do’s and dont’s on and around the golf course. A crash course to start your golf life with can be fun, but it will not provide you with a solid basis on which to build that confidence. 

So keep taking lessons afterwards and play with experienced golfers to further solidify your basis and enjoy the great game of golf!
