What are the golf clubs needed for a beginner?
Golfers need to have a driver, a putter, irons and a wedge or two to even play the game at a basic level. That's why finding the right set of golf clubs for a beginner is so important. The best beginner sets have at least one driver, two woods, oneputter, one hybrid, two wedges and seven irons.
Do you really need golf shoes to play golf?
As far as the actually playing of golf, golf shoes are not required. You can play your way around the golf course in tennis shoes, running shoes, cross trainers, or any shoes you wish (so long as they do not damage the turf and are permitted by the golf course). And beginning golfers have enough of those already.
