golf ball
   
From the Dutch word "kolf", meaning club, but the game was invented in Scotland game going back at least to the 1400's. It's popularity was hampered by requiring close-cropped grass. The lawnmower was not invented until 1831, and not really practical until the machine-tool industry was able to cut steel gears c. 1880's. Golf wasn't played in America until 1888, when the St. Andrews Golf Club of Yonkers was formed.

Golf Gear - What You Need to Know Before You Start
By Nathan James
Golf Gear Ė What you need to Know before You Start

Everyone is getting into the sport of these days. Itís relaxing, and a fun way to spend some time outdoors with friends or business associates. While you certainly donít need to buy all the gear required on your first outing, it is a good idea to know what you need. Golf can be a very expensive game when you factor in all the gear, clothing, and green fees. But if youíre just starting out, donít break the bank until youíre sure is the game for you.

The first and most important equipment youíll need is clubs. If youíve never played before you may

want to rent a set from the pro shop at the course. You can buy clubs for under $50, but a good quality set will cost you much more than that. You may even want to consider buying a used set if your budget is stretched a little tight.

In addition to your clubs, youíll need balls and tees. Tees are fairly straightforward, but you may want to buy quite a few if youíre just starting out since you may end up hitting the tee more often then the ball. As for balls, you donít need anything fancy when youíre starting out. Since you may end up losing a few to the water hazards donít spend a lot.

Golf Attire

When heading to a new club for the first time, you may want to check up on their dress code. Yes, thatís right, a dress code. Even the most inexpensive courses typically have a dress code in place that while not strictly enforced, is important if you want to immerse yourself in culture.

Typically collared shirts, long shorts, and shoes are required. Donít expect to head out onto the course in your cut-off jeans though. Not only is this frowned upon, but it can get extremely uncomfortable. Most pro shops offer a complete line of menís and womenís wear.

With all this gear youíre now ready to get started. A last piece of advice, the best thing you can do for your game is to take a couple lessons before your first outing. This will give you the basics you need to become a great golfer in no time.
