Default golfing for beginners website

I'm hoping that with all the many users on this site that someone knows a website dedicated to the sport of golf -- one that follows the format of this forum if possible. I just picked up the sport, but I can't really find any interesting or knowledgable sites. I even tried googling. Thanks in advance.

I don't know of any sites, but for me the best thing I did was take a few lessons and get some nicer clubs. Golf is a game of confidence, you have to have confidence in yourself and your clubs if you want to learn how to play. I have been playing since I was 13 (7 years) and now I feel im doing pretty good. ( im a 6 handicap) but I would just get some decent clubs, maybe a few lessons and get some buddys to go play

See that is the problem. I do have a couple friends and brother-in-laws, etc. to golf with, but I am interested in equipment, and there is so much variety out there that I don't know where to turn. I have tried reading up on the subject, but golf is very subjective. How can I tell a quality set of clubs from crap. I can go to Kmart or Wal-Mart and buy a Titiliest or Wilson set for $165 + tax, Confidence brand (no-name for $130), or go to Dick's Sporting Goods and buy a Walter Hagen MS2 set for $150that normally retails for $300+ and got good reviews online. I have tried reading up on the subject, and that is why I was hoping to find a more informative site. Thanks for the advice.

go somewhere that allows you to test out the clubs. typically, walmart, kmart, etc clubs are crap, marked up to the point you think they're good since they're expensive.

I would go to a carla golf land if you have one around you. Or I think you can teat clubs a dicks sporting goods also. You just have to find clubs that you like. Like regular flex vs. Stiff flex shafts on your clubs. And after that its just practice. You can build up to nicer clubs later if you want to stick with the game. Like now im using a full set of taylormade irons a and 60°wedge, a Taylormade r7 limited driver and a scotty cameron putter. When I started I just got one of the $150 sets but now my clubs a toping $1200

You're advice is on the mark, and I've done my homework. We don't have a lot to offer in this area for golf stores -- Dick's or Golf Galaxy (expensive subsidiary of Dick's). I am familiar with the regular vs. stiff, but unless I actually take either on the course, how can I tell which is good or not? By swinging a club, I might feel that this feels better or sturdier, until I am physically on the green and see results. Thanks.

sporting goods places like dick's or golf galaxy will typically have cages set up for you to test the clubs. not the same as being on the course, but it lets you hit a few balls with each club to see how they feel to you.

my other suggestion is to first buy a used set of clubs.

I went to Dick's, found the set I liked and went home, ordered them online and found a discount code and got it a little cheaper. I went and played and thought I'd be a complete badass and I sucked. But I've gotten a lot better. Just takes time because golf is a long process to become good.

go to your local corse and schedule a lesson with one of the pro's. they will help you get a good star on your swing and stuff. for a beginner i would definitely recommend buying some decent sized cavity backs. dont buy blades or muscle backs. the big cavitybacks like the ping g15's are very forgiving
