Patience, practise and more patience make perfect for the skilful art of golf.
This world-famous professional and recreational pursuit encompasses so much more than knowing which club to use for which hole.
You will need to learn how to tee off with correct swing actions, the distance required to propel your tiny white ball with the appropriate golf club to each particular green and, importantly, how to putt like a pro.
Smart casual attire, with an emphasis on comfortable clothing that moves when you do and won’t restrict your swing is recommended for first-time golf experiences.
On the fairways and greens, you must wear custom-made, studded-sole golf shoes, but for indoor golf experiences, comfortable enclosed footwear is acceptable.
If playing golf outdoors, a cap or hat and sunglasses are a prerequisite and you should apply plenty of broad-spectrum SPF to keep the sun’s harmful rays at bay.
The famous American pro golfer, Arnold Palmer, once said: “Success in this game depends less on strength of the body than strength of mind and character.”
Patience is definitely a virtue when mastering the finite art of playing golf and not just in the professional realm. On a recreational level, playing golf is an ideal exercise in developing hand-eye coordination.
Golf is also a pastime that attracts a fanatical following, so the social aspect of mutual respect for the age-old sport creates a club-like atmosphere that’s grounded on perfecting your skills, overcoming innate frustrations and celebrating the gradual or rapid decline in your golfing handicap.
Playing golf is also a great way to keep fit, enjoy long walks in perfectly manicured, natural surroundings and make like-minded friends for life.
