Our Ultimate Guide to Women’s Golf (opens in new tab), on sale now, delivers 134 pages of expert opinion and analysis, with instruction from some of the best coaches in the game. 

Although there is a strong focus at beginner level – with a remit to ensure female golfers who are new to the game have everything they need to feel comfortable – the book also offers tips to play better, comment, travel, fitness, fashion and equipment insight for all levels of player.

Despite the effects of the global pandemic and Covid-19, golf has enjoyed a boom over the last 18 months. New players have taken the game up, while old ones have returned with strong levels of growth in the women's sector. 

But if you are new to the game, or have chosen to take golf up again, where and how do you start? What equipment should you be using and how and where do you get it? How do you join a golf club and where can you practise? What are the rules of golf and why should you be following them? Where are the best places to travel and how much does a typical golf break cost?
