How to start playing golf – basic steps for beginners

Golf is not only a popular game, but also a great way to spend time outdoors, keep fit and make new friends. If you are considering starting your golf adventure in Pomorskie, here are some basic steps to get you started on this fascinating game.

Familiarize yourself with the basic rules: Golf is a sport based on the rules of etiquette and fair play. Before you start playing, it’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with the basic rules of golf, such as how to hit the ball, the rules of scoring, behavior on the golf course, and safety rules.

Take golf lessons: Beginner players often make technical mistakes that can affect their performance. That is why it is worth taking advantage of golf lessons conducted by experienced instructors. The instructor will show you the correct striking technique, tell you how to improve your skills and provide valuable tips.

Tokary Golf Club, located just outside Gdańsk, has a special training offer for beginners.


Rent or buy golf equipment: You don’t need to invest in expensive golf equipment at first. Many golf courses offer the possibility to rent a golf set on site. However, if you decide to play regularly, you might want to consider buying your own equipment. The basic set includes golf clubs, golf balls, a bag for clubs and possibly a golf cart.

Visit Golf Course: Find a golf course in your area and visit it. Feel the atmosphere of the game, see how other golfers spend their time on the course, ask about possible lessons for beginners. Often, golf courses have special introductory programs for new players to help them familiarize themselves with the rules of the game.

Practice at the driving range: The driving range is a place where golfers can practice hitting balls on special mats. It’s the perfect place for beginners who want to perfect their technique. Many driving ranges also offer golf club hire, so you can bring your own equipment or use the ones provided on site. In Pomorskie, one of the facilities where such a golf shooting range is located is Golf Club Zajączkowo.

Find a partner to play: Golf can be even more rewarding when you have a partner to play with. Ask at the golf club about the possibility of finding a partner to play. This may be someone who already plays golf and will help you during your round with advice and guidance. You can also join a golf club or golf group where you can meet other golf enthusiasts.

Learn by Observation: Observing experienced golfers at play can be very instructive. Pay attention to their technique, the way they approach different strokes, and their tactics on the field. You can also watch telecasts of golf tournaments to learn the strategies and tactics used by the pros.

Remember golf etiquette: Etiquette is an important element of golf. Remember to remain silent when other players are hitting, do not walk on the putt line (the line that the ball is supposed to go into the hole), take care of the condition of the golf course and respect the rules in force on the given course. Respecting other players and the golf community is essential.

Start With Shorter Courses: It’s a good idea to start with shorter courses, known as a learning course (par 3). They have fewer holes and shorter distances, making it easier to learn and build confidence. Gradually, as you gain experience, you can progress to courses with more holes and more challenges.

At the beginning, it is worth trying your hand at a golf simulator. One of such devices is located in the Wieniawa Hotel, located near the Tri-City.

Be patient and enjoy the game: Golf is a game that requires precision and patience. Learn to accept both successes and failures. Remember that even the best golfers have days when they don’t play well. It is important to enjoy each round and see golf as a form of relaxation and entertainment.

All in all, starting golf can be a fascinating experience. Remember to familiarize yourself with the rules of the game, take golf lessons, find a partner to play with and gradually develop your skills. With regular practice and patience, you can become a better golfer and enjoy this great game for many years.
