Getting started with playing golf is not so difficult as it may seem, golf is very fun to play and once you master the basics it become highly addictive. This article will give you with some directions on the 1st step of becoming a golfer – Buy golf clubs. I hope you will find this info useful.

Golf Equipment I think the biggest mistake one can make is to buy brand new golf club set as a beginner player. Golf clubs are expensive business and one golf club can cost hundreds of dollars so a whole new set is a lot of money to spend. Even if you can afford it you should know that golf clubs comes in great varieties and takes time to a player to develop his “taste”. My recommendation for beginners is to start with pre-owned golf clubs which can save you a lot of money, you can look for Taylormade preowned or Callaway preowned golf club and buy them with great discount. After you play for a while you can go ahead and buy yourself some new clubs.

Another option is of course to hire the equipment as many places will provide you the option to do so, you can also think about borrowing some golf clubs from a friend.

In case you have decided to buy some pre-owned or new clubs you need to know that you don’t have to buy the whole set just right from the beginning. I recommend to start off with few clubs only, get yourself a nine iron and a wedge, these two are the best to start with and they will give you the feeling of hitting the ball.

Where can you buy golf club? There are professional golf shops that sell golf equipment, You can also buy it at the driving ranges. Another option is to buy your golf clubs online, there are good internet sites with golf clubs reviews such as Taylormade PreOwned, you can read reviews for new and used golf clubs and buy them from internet store, these internet stores usually allow you to buy the club, use it and then return it if you don’t like it.

You can also buy used golf clubs from people you meet at the driving ranges or check the classified ads but then you don’t have the option to return it in case it don’t fit, so make sure to check real good before you do that.

Well that does conclude this article, I know it looks complicated in the beginning but you should remember that many people around the world play golf every day and so can you. In the end it’s all about having fun. If you found my article useful please take a moment to share it with your friends and give me the 5 start rating (on the top). Thank you much.

Being a fairly new player, I agree with the clubs that I think a brand new set for a beginner is a waste, even it you have the money. I started of with one club, I found in the basement it was an older driver, I took it out to the driving range and started hitting balls, started reading and watch others. I still do have not a full set of clubs, they do have a price, even used ones at times are pricey. I buy one when I can and when I know what I really want because there are way to many clubs to choose from. There is a lot of time to get a good set of clubs, learn the game first and don't waste your money. That my take Tim
