"I want to play,I want to play!"

Where to get golf lessons?? You will meet plenty of people at the range who will teach you the 'innermost secrets' of golf. Fact is that most of them have started playing not long before you. So the answer to the above question is: Demis Papillon Golf Academy, go to a Teaching Professional. As you have seen on TV, even the world's top players have a coach and take lessons. Certified Golf Professionals are the only people qualified to teach you how to play the game.

Lessons from a Golf Professional will cost you money but will be the best investment you'll ever make. Taking the advice from the 'know-it-all' people at the range will likely screw-up your game at the very early stage and it will take a long time to correct the faults later. The two places to get golf lessons are at driving ranges and golf clubs. You don't have to be a member of a club to get a lesson from a Teaching Professional.The usual cost is about 25Euro’s to 40 Euro’s per 45 minutes,however you will get reductions for a block booking and if you are Romanian National, it will be 100 Euro’s for 5 lessons.
As hard as it will be to contain yourself, don't even contemplate going anywhere near a golf course. Golf is technically quite demanding, and without at least some basic training you'll end up with a lot of frustration. You've seen the top players on TV loosing their cool in frustration, imagine how you will feel if not even a single shot goes where you want it to. Besides, the other people having to wait for you will also not be happy.
As a beginner at the great game of golf, start off at a driving range, take at least four or five lessons, learn the fundamentals, progress to a 9 hole course and eventually venture out into the great unknown of an 18 hole golf course. Believe me, it will be a lot more fun for you and those around you if you follow this path.

To support your lessons it can be useful to watch some instructional golf videos or DVDs. A good selection covering almost every aspect (or fault) of your your game is available from Demis Papillon Golf Academy V1 Golf Video lessons program.
