Golf Instruction for Novices
Golf clubs are used to play golf
There are normally three or four wood clubs and nine or ten irons in the average good player’s kit (no more than 14 clubs may be carried during a round). A set of clubs contains no duplicates. The length and suppleness of the shaft, the weight, size, and form of the head, the angle at which the shaft ends and the head begins (the lie), and the angle of the club’s face from the vertical are all factors (the loft).
The numerous clubs are identified by their number as well as their names. The length and pitch of a club’s head are largely determined by its number, which corresponds to the distance and height to which a club will drive a ball.

The Goal of the Game
The goal of the game is to get your ball from the tee (the beginning point of any hole) to the green and finally into the hole in the fewest number of shots possible. The phrase “the hole” refers to both the physical hole designated by a flag into which the ball must be sunk and the entire region between the tee and the green.
The Golf Course is Yours
SELECT THE CORRECT BALL
Balls are purchased on a sliding scale dependent on the number of balls lost in a round. Buy balls that cost roughly $20 a dozen if you’ve never played before or lose two sleeves or more per round (if you can’t decide between one brand and another, try putting a few to see how they feel going off the putter face). Purchase balls that cost less than $30 per dozen once the number of lost balls has been reduced to three to five per round. Only consider the $40 a dozen balls if you’re losing less than a sleeve per round. See our ball Hot List for a complete list of golf balls.
