What is needed to start playing golf?


To start playing golf on a certified course and count the so-called handicap required two things. You must have completed a beginner’s course that leads to a green card. The beginners’ course is held on most major golf clubs and should always be guided by an instructor who have undergone coach education.

The second requirement to be able to play golf at one of 500 golf courses is that you are an active member of a golf club. Are you a member of a golf club, you usually play freely on that particular club but also play against a fee paid to other clubs. If you are not an active member, you do not play golf on any golf course. When you choose to play at any other golf club in addition to the golf club you belong to, you pay a fee called for green fees. Green fee The fee is usually around 300 for a senior.

Once these two requirements are met, you’ve come really far with your golf. Now you can play all you want and when you want and start counting the handicap, which is a measure of how good you are. Of course, competing only with itself.

It is important to add is the notion of an official handicap. When has finished beginner course and become a member so you do not have an official handicap, then you have a handicap 54. Your goal then is to get an official handicap is just 36.0.

Then it is of course important to explain why official is so desirable. The fact is that if you do not have an official handicap must not play at other courses than where you are a member. It limits you, of course. You may not play alone or with people who have over 36.0 handicap (ie not an official handicap).

It may resemble official handicap with a kind of license in golf. When you reach the official handicap, you get to play other courses and play with what you want. Reaching 36.0 handicap is not difficult. It would be difficult, there would be over 500 000 registered golfers in US.
