Set of Golf Clubs For Beginner Golf Student
A beginner golf student should start with a basic set of golf clubs. This includes three woods, irons from numbers 3 to 9, pitching wedge, and putter. As your game improves more clubs can be added to your bag.
Tip- The rule states you can only have up to 14 clubs in your bag.

Woods
A set of woods will include a driver and two fairway woods number 3 and 5 wood. The driver will have the number one on the head of the club. It will be the largest club and provide the most powerful shot helping you hit the longest distance out of all of your clubs in your golf bag.. The 3-wood is the second largest club in your bag. It is also used for long distances.
Tip- Beginners shouldn’t start with the driver (wood number 1) Start with the 3 wood because it gives your more control off the tee. The 5 wood is for shorter shots and is equivalent to the 5 iron.

Irons
A set of clubs normally comes with irons numbered 3 to 9 plus the pitching wedge. The angle of the golf club determines the use of each iron. For longer distances use the lower irons 3 and 4. These golf irons have a lower loft helping to project the ball lower for greater distance. The 5 and 6 are for medium distance shots and the 7, 8 and 9 are for shorter distances. The 7, 8 and 9 golf irons will have a higher loft projecting the ball higher in the air for shorter shots. There is no set distance for each iron. A players personal strength will determine the choice of an iron.
Tip- Start with a inexpensive set of irons or buy a set for under $200

Golf Balls
Golf balls are made with small dimples. The dimples help glide the balls through the air. Tip- Find the cheapest balls because beginners, will lose a lot of golf balls.

Buying Golf Clubs Children
Manufactures have designed clubs specifically for children under the age of 10. These clubs are lighter and smaller in size with thinner grips. Most of the sets are reduced in number limiting the club decision the child has to make. This also benefits that child by reducing the weight of the bag. The lowest iron is normally the 6. The putter should be measured from the child’s waste to the ground.

Tip- make sure the clubs are light enough for your child to swing.

Golf Shoes
There is a lot of walking when you play an entire round of golf with out a golf cart. Make sure the gof shoes are comfortable. Golf shoes are now designed for all types of weather including waterproof when it rains. The spikes on the bottom of the shoe helps with traction. Tip - Rubber spikes are standard because they are less likely to damage the course compared to metal.

Par
Each course is designed with a certain amount of holes with pars of 3, 4, 5 and in some small cases 6. To earn a Par you must make it the whole in a predetermine amount of shots. For example if the hole says par 3, you must make it to the whole with 3 shots. A par 4 is four shots and a par 5 is five shots.

Boggy
If you shoot one over par. A double boggy is 2 over par

Birdie
To make a birdie you must shoot one under par. If a hole is a par 4 then you must put it in the hole in 3 shots.

Eagle
To make a eagle you must shoot two under par. If you are playing a par 5 and you make it to the hole in 3 shot, then you have made an eagle. Eagles are challenging.

Hole in 1
Make it in one shot and you have made a hole in one. Most players dream about the day when they can make a hole in one. It doesn’t happened much but if your lucky on a par 3 there is a always that chance.

Hazards
Sand and water that is postioned around the golf course to make the game more difficult.

Tee Ground
This is where the first shot is taken. Color coded markets indicate the where to take the first shot. There are markers for ladies, average players and professionals

Fairway
The area between the tee ground and green. This is where most golfers shoot their second and third shots.

Rough
Area off the fairway where you don't want to be because the grass is cut longer providing a more difficult shot.

Green
The goal of golf is to first find the golf flag located on the green. Next you must try to land your ball on green. Finally, you should putt the ball into the hole. The hole may be located anywhere on the green. The grass is cut short to allow the ball to roll.

Golf Location-

There are brilliant course locations all around the world. The most famous is the Augusta National located in Georgia. This is the location where the Masters tournament is played.There are private courses with membership fee. There are also public course were normally the price is cheaper.
Tip- If you’re a beginner start with the driving range before playing a round of golf. Pitch and Putt courses are also a great starter before moving onto a real course.

Cost of Golf Lessons-

Golf lessons range from $30 a half hour to $100 depending on location and experience of instructor. Make sure your golf instructor is certified. Tips to cut the cost of lessons take a semi-private with a friend. There are a number of golf classes. A round of golf can be as low as $25 to over $200 depending if it is private or a public course.
