What is the best time to learn golf?
I am constantly asked that question: What is the best time to learn golf ore enroll in golf lessons? Before answering it, let me tell you what the reality is.
Too often, golf beginners’ initiation is taken care of by friends or relatives unskilled for that purpose. A golf player is not a golf professional. Thus initiated, golf beginners on their first round of golf soon realize they cannot follow the pace of play. The Marshall responsible for combating slow play will come and bother them.
Frustrated and humiliated, and sometimes even upset with their friends or relatives, these “rookies” give up on golf. That’s too bad!
And those who will keep learning without the help of a Golf Pro will develop bad habits. These bad habits will haunt them for the rest of their lives. That’s too bad again!
What Should You Do Then?
Go to a Certified Golf Teacher. The sooner the better. With him/her, you will learn good golf techniques and basics you need to enjoy playing golf.
Then ask your Golf Instructor or an advanced golfer to join you on your first round of golf on a real course. To speed up the game, play Twosome Scramble Golf so the Marshall won’t bother you. If afraid of playing on a real golf course, try a few rounds on a golf simulator first.
So, there is no best time to enroll in golf lessons. Nevertheless, there is a better, faster, cheaper and funnier way to learn golf: enroll in a series of golf lessons with a Certified Golf Instructor, or better off with us! We will put you on the right track right away. We will also tell you when you’re ready to play your first round of golf, with or without our pro joining you.
Enjoy learning and playing golf!
