What do you wish to get from your golf tasting lessons?
It is important, how the first golf taster lesson is held especially for golf beginners. One should talk to a golf professional in any case, and not try to learn golf on one’s own. There are some golf courses, which allow golf beginners to use the Driving Range, but it is not adviseable, as one may memorize something wrong and will not have a sense of achievement.
Anyway, a golf taster lesson mostly begins by taking a close look at the golf equipment. The golfbag with its max. 14 clubs comprises the iron club, the putter and the drivers. Each club consists of 3 parts: the clubs‘ head, the shaft and the grip.
You’ll learn, which clubs to use and their differences during your first golf taster lesson.
The Golf outfit does not play a decisive role for golf beginners. It is best to wear sneakers, a pair of elastic training trousers and a t-shirt. As soon as you have decided yourself for the golf sport, you can learn everything about the golf etiquette on the website of the golf course.
After checking the golfbag, you commence with the driving range. The driving range is the training area for beginners and professionals for training matters and for warming up. The golf professional will teach you the right posture here. The posture and the crip of the club is essential in golf. This is why you are not advised to try golf swings without a golf professional in the beginning.
And then follows, what you will be longing for: the first tee-off. To be fair, the first hit will not work fine, the second and third neither, but it will come for sure: the first club, which is well done.
And this will be the moment, you will go for this new hobby and say „I play golf.“.
The next step, the golf course permission.
