Hello from Mid-Michigan - I’m recently retired and looking forward to a full and busy retirement. I simply want to add golf to my physical activity list. I’m looking forward to learning how to play (my) game. I am thanking in advance all those whom respond and reply to my post. Thank You!

Welcome to TST.  I am not quite retired yet myself, but congratulations to you just the same.

How much golf have you played?  If you're truly new to it, how can I help you get into it?  And if you aren't new, can I do something to help you enjoy it more?

Hello Shindig - I played my first and last nine holes nearly 40 years ago. My (new) wife plays and “even I” (HaHa) have friends and other family members whom play. My ambition is to simply enjoy myself on the course while not frustrating others. I consider myself competitive in that I (will) aspire to continually improve (my) game. I believe my chosen forum profile names sums it up. Just Fore Fun. I appreciate the reach out, thank you.

Welcome to TST, and your retirement. 

My recommendation is don't let golf be your only physical exercise in your retirement. By itself, it's not enough. Do other things to stay mentally, and physically active. Those other things will make your golf journey more enjoyable. 

I've been semi retired, and fully retired going on 15 years, now. Golf is is a big part of my life, but so are a lot of other things.

Ive heard from more than a couple of people say they actually have less time for hobbies like golf in retirement than they did when they were working. One of those guys was 80+ and still walked and carried his bag... He passed a few years ago but that dude was a beast.

I’ve never been one to sit on my donkey for too long. The past four and half decades have pretty much been work for me , as so I know, for many others as well.  Developing my golf game will (not) dominate my new found free time. It will though give me a new avenue of pursuits that I hope will keep my mind expanding. Thanks for the input and reply.
