PostSubject: New Year Resolution : Starting Golf   Wed Jan 02, 2013 12:48 pm

Good Morning Guys,

So it's 2013, and this has become my resolution for this year.
I've been a professional Pool player for almost 6years now.

And it's time to switch out.

I'm 22 this year, my girlfriend has a 'provisional license' for golfing, not sure what you call it.
But she doesn't play anymore, perfect time for me to pick up the sport, so we have 1 more thing to do on the weekend.

Any lao-jiao's can advise how I should start?
I'm not so much of a running 18holes, I would think I'm more of a leisure driving balls on a driving range kind of person.
Until I develop further interest.

Could anyone help me out?
I have 0 knowledge on golf.

Cheers guys!

My humble suggestion is to start with beginner lessons with a Pro..myself is a newbie too, before that I do powerlifting and tennis, never expected to be interested in golf but now I'm crazy abt it.....Happy Golfing!!

Hi Cloute,

Welcome to Golf Republic. Since it is your new year resolution to start golf, I recommend getting a lesson to learn the basic of golf. After 10 lessons, you will get your PC (what your girlfriend has) and you should have a better feel if golf is for you or not.

Cheers.

Thank you for your advise guys.

But where do I go to get such a thing done? To get my PC that is.
And how much does it cost usually?

And after that, where do I go from there?

Go to any driving range, there are Pro-shop and usually have an in-house golf academy...go and check it out, ask abt the beginner course, who's the resident coach, course fees, etc....

If in a group of 2-3 pax, each one approx $480 - $580.....one on one likely at $1k range, depending on your budget, usually 1 lesson per week, total 10hrs = 10 lessons, depend on how hardworking, u practice at your own times at driving range in btw lessons...after completion, u will receive your PC aka probation licence which allow u to play on weekdays in the course where u take your lessons....to get your HCP (licence to play at all golf courses locally), is another journey to ride on.....

U can find out tons of info in this forum as I myself have greatly benefitted reading from past threads...also can look out for used clubs in the market thread...... Very Happy

Get a friend to start off with! Or even your Girlfriend! Always easier to learn with a partner!
