Getting Started: Golf Basics for Beginners

By Sandy LaBauve

Hi, welcome to the game of golf. This is a great game you can play for the rest of your life. The object of this game is to start on a hole, there’s usually 18 of them. You start from a tee box and you try to get your ball from the tee box into the hole, in the fewest number of shots possible. On every hole, there are a variety of tee boxes, so that players of different levels can play together. Usually the longest players play from the back tees and then it progresses on up to the forward tees so that everyone can have fun. Come on, play along with me.
