7 basic tips to start in golf

Golf is a sport that requires concentration, precision and coordination. Beginning in this sport may at first be slightly intimidating, but everyone can learn. If you are determined to begin this exciting sport, here are some basic tips.

1.Take classes

Learning to play golf alone or with friends is complicated. To get started in this sport, it is better to take some practical classes with a professional who will know how to teach you good gestures and correct postures. Friends and family can help you with their recommendations but a golf lesson with a trained professional is the best way to learn the basics of golf. At the Real Club de Golf de Sevilla you can take classes with golf professionals and have a practice area.

2.Rent the equipment or buy the basics

For your first day of golf our recommendation is that you rent the necessary equipment. Many golf courses, such as the Real Club de Golf de Sevilla, rent bags of clubs, practice balls, and other materials to enjoy a day of golf.
And if you are ready for your first day in the field and want to get your own equipment, we recommend you not to buy the whole set of clubs but only the basic ones to start with.

3.Be patient

When you start, it’s difficult to jump directly to an 18-hole course. You have to have a practice time before you can do a ‘real journey’. An intermediate option is to play a game of Pitch and Putt, which is a type of golf that is played in a field of small dimensions.

4.Warm Up

Even if golf is not a violent sport, during your practice all joints of the body are moved, so it is necessary to warm up before starting to play.

5.Keep your feet on the ground

Surely you have seen many times on TV the magnificent turns of feet of golfers when they make a swing. However, when you start to learn this sport, it is best to keep your feet firmly planted on the ground when you hit the ball, this will allow you to keep track of the ball.

6.No without my glove

Before starting to play or practice, the ideal is to remove the rings (which can hurt us) and watches (which can fly) and put on a glove. When you start to play often hold the sticks too strongly and this can cause blisters that can be avoided if we use gloves.

7.Be strong facing frustration

Attention to beginners, the beginnings are hard. When you start playing, do not expect to send the ball to 100 meters and getting the ball to where you want: it is a matter of practice, technique and perseverance. Generally in golf there are more bad days, but good ones are wonderful.

We hope that these tips are useful when you start golf. And if you finally decide to start practicing it, remember that in Sevilla Green Suites you will find the ideal place to stay, since it is located a few meters from the Real Club de Golf de Sevilla.
