Beginner’s guide to golf equipment

If you’re a pro golfer, you probably already think you know everything about choosing the right golfing equipment. Fair point, but don’t we all have those friends we’d love to convert to the sport, and haven’t managed to convince them yet? If you are a beginner looking to start out, or a veteran trying to figure out how to sell it to your buddies, this guide is for you. We’ve narrowed it down to the essentials you’ll need to start your career as an amateur golfer.

1) Half set of clubs

These are going to be costly either way if you want to opt for quality (and you really should), but a great way of minimising the initial investment is to buy half rather than a full set of clubs.

Relaxing is also beneficial to health and it’s definitely something a lot of golfers enjoy while playing. Taking one’s mind off day-to-day life and stress can be difficult, and for many people a round of golf achieves this. If you’re doing well in the game, you’re probably going to feel especially relaxed when it’s all over.

While you’re at it, socialising and doing business can often go hand in hand with golfing. It’s simply a great way to spend time with any small group of people, whether these are family members, friends or potential business partners. You can make your game as relaxed or professional as you want to, and building relationships and rapport with people over a game is going to help with whatever you want to achieve with the same people later. The sport gives many people a great foundation they can bond over and build on.…
