Pay-and-play golf courses

Once you have learned the basics of golf (how to hit a ball, the essential rules and etiquette) you are ready to play.

It may be best to start on a course that welcomes beginners, and which is not too expensive. Check if there is a municipal golf course near you (these are easy enough to find on the Internet): they are almost always cheaper than the private golf courses belonging to membership-based golf clubs, which often have long waiting lists and high membership fees.

Pay-and-play golf courses allow you simply to book a round and play, without first becoming a member. Many of the pay-and-play courses are 9-hole courses, which can be an advantage for the beginner: the usual 18-hole course can seem pretty daunting at first.
