Welcome to Golf Guide for Beginners (#GGFB) – The Web’s Best Golf For Beginners Guide!

In our opinion Golf is one of the greatest sports in the World. I mean how many sports can you think of that can be played by children as young as 4 years old and by seniors in their 90s?

Unfortunately, throughout the 20th century golf got a bad reputation, and rightly so, for being elitist and expensive. But things have changed quite dramatically over the last few decades and the game has grown in popularity ever since Tiger Woods came onto the scene in the late 1990s.

Today, there are legions of new people getting into the game. But starting out in golf can be difficult and confusing. There are so many things one needs to know – What golf clubs do I need? What is a handicap? How can I hit the ball further? Which golf course should join? Can I wear these trousers and shoes? What rules do I need to know?

On this site we have provided helpful guides for beginners to get started in golf and for intermediate golfers to improve their game.

To help you find the information you need we have separated the site into a few key sections:

Getting Started: In this section you will find all the key information you need to know about the history of the game, the rules of golf, proper golf etiquette and dress code, the most important terms and phrases in golf and how to work out and use a golf handicap.

We explain what equipment you need and what to look out for to ensure you get the right gear for your game.
