Michelle Wie leading the way for the ladies

Golf is a sport for everyone so why not head to your nearest course?

Driving ranges are great to build up your confidence. And lessons with a coach are also recommended to learn the basics and iron out all those bad habits.

Then it's time to hit the course. The first step is to visit a nine-hole course.

These are generally par-three holes but you'll need more than a pitching wedge. It'll give you the chance to practise with your irons and woods from the tee.

And once you've graduated to a full-sized 18-hole course you can really let it rip. Don't forget the nine-hole course altogether though - whatever level you play at the smaller course is great for practising.
