Getting Started: Golf Basics for Beginners

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.
