Start with a basic set of golf clubs, the idea behind starting off with regular ones is to replace them as you gradually improve.
Go to a retailer that allows you to test the set of clubs and try asking for a 6-iron with a variety of shaft flexes. For female golfers, don’t necessarily head straight for the flex labeled “L” (for “ladies”) just because they have the most flexible shafts. Select a flex type that feels best when you swing the club, then apply that flex type to all your clubs.
Consider playing your first round on a shorter par-3 course then proceed to a regulation course.
As you start your round, determine the order of play on the first tee however you’d like. Afterwards, the person whose ball remains the farthest from the hole is given the opportunity to hit next, but most importantly, it is advised to be ready as quickly as possible to avoid slowing other groups. Additionally, there may be other golfers assigned to join your group, so to be respectful, it is important to play at a reasonably quick pace. Walk briskly to your ball, assess the lie and distance of your next shot, select your club, visualize the shot, take a practice swing, then execute.
