Golf is an expensive sport, especially in India, where a middle-class worker may take home only 20,000 rupees a month. If you have become addicted to the game and plan to play it for the rest of your life, it's time to invest in your own set of golf clubs. The cost of a complete golf game can range from 25,000 to 5 lakhs, depending on the sophistication. When choosing a set of clubs, it's best to visit a pro shop or golf store located within a golf course to test them and measure comfort levels.
You can also buy a golf game online through various websites. Golf is becoming increasingly popular among middle-class Indians, with some public fields functioning as tourist centers. Most clubs require a handicap certificate or a “golf test” for players. To obtain a handicap certificate, you must be a member of a club.
A handicap certificate is necessary to play on any golf course and will allow you to play according to the rules and regulations of each course. Golf has several formats and an entire course has 18 holes. You can choose to play only 9 holes (approximately 1.5-2.5 hours) or as many holes as you want (3 holes, 6 holes, etc.). To find a golf course or coach in your city, do a simple web search and call or visit them for information on golf classes and training.
