A fabulous book that serves as a wonderful welcome mat for new golfers – authored by Debbie Waitkus and includes forwards by Marilynn Smith, LPGA Co-Founder and Pam Wright, LPGA.


"Here's a book that makes a perfect gift for the woman you'd like to play golf with, except that she doesn't play. For all of the advancements in golf for women, the game still puts off newbies. The guys will just bluff their way through the awkwardness of picking up a new sport, but women want to feel welcome, invited, competent. With Get Your Golf On! Debbie Waitkus has succeeded in presenting a smart, friendly invitation to women by giving them all the information they need to feel comfortable at a golf course.


“She's not teaching the swing, the chip and the putt; rather, she offers tips on learning and practicing, plus all of the ancillary information required to make a tee time, check in, dress appropriately, keep score, navigate the golf course and observe all of the important etiquette and important rules."


~ Susan Fornoff, Gotta Go Golf

    "In this easy to read guide for beginning golfers, Debbie Waitkus of Golf for Cause shares her enthusiasm for the game and encouragement for all those women who want to play golf but are perhaps too intimidated to start. Beginning with her own story of hitting the course for the first time, she answers every question a beginning golfer is likely to ask. What to wear, what equipment to buy, borrow or rent, where to practice, and basic tips about golf etiquette and rules every golfer should know. Including reflections from a wide variety of recreational and professional golfers, Get Your Golf On! offers inspiration for every beginning golfer. Deb's goal in writing the book was to remove the fear factor so many new golfers face. Get Your Golf On! does just that."

  • ~ Char Carson

    "A valuable book for so many types of golfers: tentative ("not sure if I want to get into this game") golfers, those just starting out or even playing for a couple of years, and experienced golfers looking to improve their personal or business relationships through golf. I highly recommend this to golfers of all skill levels and will encourage my students to get a copy today! A fabulous guide for building your confidence in the game of golf."

  • ~ Christina Thompson
    Founder & CEO Golf4Her

    "Any female who is toying with the idea of playing golf but is nervous about what to expect will love this book. It breaks down the fear-factor and anxiety so many novice female golfers have about playing golf, especially since it's such a male dominated sport and there are very few resources for us women. Even as an avid golfer, I found it interesting and really fun to read.

    “What I really enjoyed is how descriptive Debbie is in explaining the various aspects of the game from what equipment to use, how it's used to what gear you need and why. Even what to do at the range. Get Your Golf On! answers every question a new golfer has about playing golf. The dialogue made me feel like I was having a one-on-one chat with one of my best friends about golf. Brilliant!"

Their anecdotes relate what can happen to you when you "Get Your Golf On!"

It will definitely give you knowledge to get you on the "radar screen" of your colleagues and bosses. As women, we want to know as much as possible about what we are getting into.

  • ~ Tom Matzen
    International best-selling author, speaker, and serial entrepreneur @ravingfans4life

    "As a relatively new golfer I was fortunate to have as my first mentor a women business professional. Not only did she teach me to play from the forward tees in the beginning ("you'll learn faster" is all I needed to hear), but she helped school me in the art and science of building relationships on the golf course. Women are natural relationship builders, and since then I've learned that they therefore have a huge advantage in playing business golf with men. I strongly encourage you share this book with anyone you know that wants to have more prosperity, energy and joy, it's a book I wish I had when I started to learn to play golf ten years ago."

    "I've had the pleasure of both playing golf with Deb and, being in an environment where her expertise in the area of golf, business golf and her keen understanding of 'human nature' were able to shine through. Deb's insights into all things golf from the perspective of women playing with men and men playing with women is truly unsurpassed. She has it figured out!

    “Through Get Your Golf On! she brings a thoughtful practicality to the game that considers not only the rules of the game but the frailness of us as people in a setting where anxiety can easily rule the day. Deb makes it fun, relaxed and yet purposeful. Her understanding of the nuances of this wonderful yet at times, frustrating pastime make her book a must read for anyone just starting out with the game or as a great reminder for those of us who are more seasoned.

    “If you play golf for business or pleasure, Get Your Golf On! is the perfect book for your bedside."

Her long involvement with the game as a passionate advocate for all of the good that it plays in our lives is very much evident in the great anecdotes she collected and the very helpful, easy to understand guide tips she provides to get you over the threshold. I have already read it once and even with my familiarity with the game picked up a few new tips and know with my second reading I will pick up a few more. Get Your Golf On! has me moving to the first tee."

  • ~ Jenn Harris

    "I'm not going to lie, when I first bought this book, I thought it would be another dry 'how to play the game' book. But to my surprise, Get Your Golf On! is the best beginners guide to golf on the market for women. If you are a woman thinking about getting into golf or are a man who knows of a woman thinking about getting into golf this is the book to read! Debbie's style is as flowing as a Harry Potter novel but is packed full of great tips and etiquette that will make you feel comfortable on the course. Forget keeping a rule book in your bag. Debbie Waitkus' book Get Your Golf On! is the new rule book for the casual female golfer!"
