It’s Ok To Play
Golf For Fun!

Guiltless ways to make golf more fun while learning

1. It’s ok to not keep score

2. It’s ok to play from the shortest tees or start at the 150 yard marker

3. It’s ok to give yourself a better lie by rolling the ball around a little. It’s ok to tee the ball up anywhere when you are first learning

4. It’s ok to only count swings when you make contact with the ball

5. It’s ok to throw the ball out of a bunker after one try

6. It’s ok to forget about a ball that may be lost or out of bounds. It’s ok to drop a ball

where you think it might be…or where you wanted it to be

7. It’s ok to use fun team formats to play with your group…scrambles are very popular

8. It’s ok to just chip and putt on a hole when you feel like it

9. It’s ok to pick up in the middle of the hole and enjoy the outdoors and scenery

10. It’s ok to skip a hole if you need to take a break

11. It’s ok to play less than 9 or 18 holes and call it a round of golf

12. It’s ok to move your ball away from trees, rocks or very hilly lies

13. It’s ok to hit the same club for the entire round, while using a putter on the putting green

14. It’s ok to play golf in your sneakers. Be comfortable!

15. It’s ok to get enthusiastic! (high fives, fist pumps and big smiles are encouraged)

16. It’s ok to talk on the golf course… enjoy a nice conversation or tell a few jokes

17. It’s ok to bring your kids to the course, whether they are 5 or 35

18. It’s ok to PLAY GOLF JUST FOR FUN!

When you are ready, see your local Golf Professional or go to to learn and play by the USGA Rules of Golf.
