Mastering the Basics | Essential Golf Tips for Beginners

Golf is a sport that combines skill, strategy, and a love for the outdoors. If you're just stepping onto the golf course for the first time, the game may seem intimidating. Fear not, as every seasoned golfer was once a beginner. To help you get the right start on your golfing journey with confidence, here are some essential tips for beginners:

1. Grip:

The way you hold the golf club sets the foundation for a good swing. Aim for a neutral grip with your palms facing each other and both thumbs pointing down the club. Ensure a comfortable but firm hold about a 5/10 grip strength, allowing for flexibility in your wrists during the swing.

2. Alignment: 

Golf alignment is a crucial element in the game, focusing on positioning the body correctly to ensure accurate shots. It involves aligning the shoulders at your target. Proper alignment is essential for consistent and precise shots, forming a foundation for overall performance on the golf course.

3. Stance:

Achieving the right stance is crucial for balance and power. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, knees slightly bent. Position the ball in the middle of your feet. Maintain a straight back, bending at the hips and not hunching.

4. Posture:
Posture can play a key role in balance, strength, distance, and power. To achieve a correct posture maintain a straight back, bending at the hips and not hunching with your legs in an athletic position.


Starting your golfing journey can be both exciting and challenging. By focusing on these fundamental tips, you'll build a solid foundation for your game. Remember, every golfer started as a beginner, so enjoy the process, embrace the learning curve. To learn these basics with us more in depth book a golf lesson with us HERE
