All types of people play golf for a variety of reasons. For some, it’s a therapeutic way to unwind and take a little vacation from the hustle and bustle of daily life. For others, it’s a way to build character and keep a competitive spirit alive. Golf is also an accessible way for players of all skill levels and ages to get social, active, and out in nature.
Although golf costs do add up for serious players, the sport is actually more affordable than you might think. The best way for beginner golfers to get involved and try out the sport is by signing up for a lesson. Beginners will pick up the game much more quickly after a lesson or two and improve quicker after being taught the correct techniques. Individual lessons typically last between 30 minutes and an hour, and often range between $25 and $100 per session.
