Some Tips to Know Before You Every Venture out on a Golf Course

The first thing every golfer should buy is a rule book. Golf is a peculiar game as it has rules that make absolutely no sense at times and there are also rules that you will never know they exist until you get into trouble. For example if you hit the ball into a water hazard where do you take relief? That depends on which type of water hazard you hit into, is it a lateral hazard? Then you have different options and you need to know what your options are. Don’t rely on other golfers to know the rules most people only think they know the rules but when in doubt play two balls and ask your golf pro after the round and before you post your score.

Next, learn golf etiquette. There is nothing worse than a golfer out on the course that has no concept about golf etiquette. For example, you always let faster golfers play through if you are more than one hole behind the next group. This means that you are taking too much time per hole which is fine as long as you don’t hold up other golfers. Also learn where to stand or park the cart while other players take their shots. Getting into a golfer’s line of sight is not only annoying it can be dangerous if someone hits an errant shot.

Another thing you should learn is a bit of self control. No one likes a golfer that has tantrums out on the course, you will quickly be ostracized and unwelcome in a league and your phone will quit ringing for the Saturday morning foursome. Every golfer hits bad shots and we all get robbed of good shots out on the course, it is just part of the game. A brief word of dismay is fine however throwing clubs and cursing and whining for the next four holes is unacceptable.

The biggest and best golf tip you will ever get is to learn to the love the game for what it is. A way to get out into the fresh air get some exercise and socialize with other like-minded people. Most of us will never have the chance to play within the ropes so strive to learn your own capabilities and work to improve your own swing and understanding of the game. This will ensure that you learn to truly enjoy the game.
