Golf Lessons are great for everyone, but the only way to find out about Golf is to play on the golf course at the right time.
For beginners start out on the fairway about 220 yards out on a PAR 4 fairway and tee the ball up. Do the same on a Par 5 hole and Par tee off from 100 yards out.
For a golfer who has been playing for a while play from the FORWARD tees. I played most of my golf when starting was in the evening time and by myself at times but even then playing with others I played from RIGHT TEEING ground until I improved. If not try to find a near by Par 3 course to play on.
