Greendale Golf Instruction

Learning golf need not be difficult, time consuming or expensive. To play the game requires a club swing that is, in reality, a series of uncomplicated sequential physical actions. Almost everyone has the physical strength and manual dexterity required. It is not necessary to hit crushing long shots to enjoy the game. If you have the desire to learn and the discipline to practice, you can develop the strength and dexterity needed to control the club and achieve satisfying results.
