Longford Golf Club

If you’re new to golf, you’d do well to have a beginner’s guide to the game. That is what we provide here at http://longfordgolfclub.com.au/. Here we explain the basic rules of the game, and we can help you with your golfers vocabulary. Golf is a gentleman’s game, which is why it is important for you to know how to conduct yourself in the manner that is required on a golf course. We provide the information that will help you get through the difficult early stages as a player, in order for you to (hopefully) continue playing and make it into a hobby (or maybe even a career?)

There are heaps of do’s and don’ts when it comes to golf, and there are a few things you should know before you take the step from the driving range to the golf course. Check out our articles for more details. You can minimize your amount of rookie mistakes by reading up on common infractions (and their consequent penalties) listed in our articles.

To paraphrase an old saying, golf is a good walk spoiled. The adage has been attributed to Mark Twain, although many people claim the saying was first used long after he died. Perhaps the statement doesn’t mean much to most golfers, as we are more likely to say that golf makes a good walk much more exciting. Also, there are no international walking championships, and a good walk is unlikely to let you win big prizes.

The Aussie Golf Industry

Thanks to major tours like the PGA Tour of Australasia, many residents within the region are exposed to the pleasures of golf. The game is genuinely popular Down Under, and Australia exports many professional players to the big global events. If you’re thinking of developing a career in golf, keep in mind that the PGA (Professional Golfers’ Association) in Australia is always interested in maintaining Australias position as having one of the best golfing industries in the world, and wants to invest in people who love the game.

Obviously, golf enjoyes popularity all over the world, and some of the bigger tournaments, in North America, Europe and elsewhere, are attended by contestants from a long list of countries. Many of these events are open to amateurs, which enables talent to flourish, and makes the impossible dream of winning a major tournament seem less impossible. Whatever your future endeavours within the game of golf consists of, we hope you’ll find our writings amusing and useful.
