6 Frequently Asked Questions Beginning Golfers Ask
by: Patricia Strasser

To significantly improve your knowledge and skills about golf, here are some basic questions a learner must ask: how much does a round of golf normally cost, how long is a round of golf, what is the proper outfit when playing, where to buy golf clubs, what are the golf accessories and essentials, and what etiquette must be observed.

Golf is a game that requires hitting the ball with the least number of strokes within the golf course. It has its own set of rules that are internationally standardized, which serves as the basis for declaring the victor. Since the pleasure it brings is exceptional, a lot of people get easily hooked on this sport. To help you start off with a good match, here are some of the frequently asked questions a beginner must know in order to have a wonderful playing experience:

How much does a round of golf normally cost?

Fees charged in the golf course usually vary depending on several factors such as the type of course, number of holes, and the time of day. Since there are various types of courses available, including Par-3, resort, and private. You can expect a great difference on the fees, which will vary from $10 to as much as $200 per round. If you are a golf enthusiast with limited funds, you might as well try the costlier courses during the off-peak season.

How long is a round of golf?

This will vary and depends on many factors including the number of players in your group and the other golf aficionados present in the group. However, the average hour of play is between 4 - 5 hours since the pace of the players is essential.

What is the proper outfit when playing?

The acceptable attire for both men and women when playing golf is slacks, shorts, and a shirt with a collar. However, some exclusive golf clubs impose stricter rules when it comes to playing. Always ask prior to going to the venue to avoid denied entrance. For the shoes, buy specially made shoes for golf since these have spikes that facilitate ease of traveling around the course.

Where do I buy golf clubs?

You don't need to worry that so much since sports shops and department stores offer golf sets at various prices. The charge differs depending on the brand and quality. Beginners must choose the set that is fairly priced since you still don't know if this sport suits you. You can also look for a second-hand set in the newspapers, eBay or Amazon.

What are the other accessories and essentials?

Although not necessary, accessories and other "must-have" essentials are recommended since these provide convenience to the player. Get yourself the following: golf bag, golf balls, golf ball marker, golf glove, a piece of towel, and sun block. A novice is also entitled to have the previously mentioned items since they will still go through the same experience as the pro.

What etiquette must I observe?

As with any other game, proper decorum is obviously present. Etiquette serves as guidelines to establish fairness of play. You should be resonsible enough to take responsibilities of your actions while within the club. If you have caused damage of any sort, be ready to replace or repair it right then and there. Aside from being accountable, you should show consideration for other players by simply doing what is appropriate. Some examples of good manners are the following: never stay behind the player as this may cause a shadow and impede precise hitting and do not walk to and fro near the hole as this may create a pit and trigger the ball to deflect.

These are just a few of the things you must learn before playing golf. However if you want to learn the fundamentals of this sport, be free to browse the net and look for more information.
