How To Play Golf: A Complete Guide For Beginners

From absolute beginner, to booming drives that set up birdies + make your mates jealous. Our complete guide to golf will get you there.

Golf is one of the world’s most popular sports. And for good reason.

It’s a great way to stay fit, it’s fun (sometimes!), it gets you outside, and it’s seriously addictive.

Once you get the golf bug, you’ll have it for life.

And no matter how good you get, you’ll always feel that there’s room for improvement. Even the world’s best players still make mistakes! In fact, there’s an argument to be made that golf is as much a mental game as it is a physical one.

In this beginner’s guide to golf, we’re going to cover everything you need to know to get started in the game.
