So, you're ready to get in the game…Fantastic!  Now, what to do? Where to start?

The golf space can be a daunting one to navigate, but it doesn't have to be. There are so many ways and places to get started that will ease your entry into the game in a fun and affordable way.

One of the best places to start is with a local PGA or LPGA Professional. They work at local golf facilities all across America and are available to help you every step of the way. The “Find an Instructor” feature on PGA.com is a good place to start…And be sure to check out the “Find a Teacher” page on LPGA.com, too. 

Once you’ve identified some golf Professionals in your community, it’s a good idea to try them out by signing up for just one lesson or clinic—like you do when you’re searching for a yoga instructor or spin studio. 

No two golf facilities are exactly alike, so it’s important that you think through what’s most important to you:

  • Do you want a male or female instructor?
  • Does the facility’s staff make you feel warm and welcome when you call and arrive onsite?
  • Are there instruction and program offerings on the days and times of the week that fit your schedule?
  • Do they offer group instruction?
  • Are there affordable options for you? 

Take time to “interview” any instructor you’re considering, in order to get your questions answered, and see if your initial rapport with them feels just right. 

Are you ready to Get Golf Ready?

A great program to learn the game in a fun and affordable way is Get Golf Ready. It’s a series of five, small group lessons, typically priced around $99—for the set.

Best, equipment isn’t required, and you’ll gain an understanding of the basic fundamentals, Rules and etiquette of golf. Plus, you’ll actually get out on the golf course to play.
