In my personal opinion it would be get lessons, watch it on TV, and read. At the end of the day just get out and play, go to the range, etc. Everyone had to start sometime so don't feel embarrassed when you get on the course or go during off-peak hours. The golf management companies are the perfect places from which you can gather more information. Watching the golf channel and reading golf digest are also great ways to see what a good swing looks like and they give you all kinds of training tips. Make sure when you go to the range to practice something specific. e.g. don't just take our your driver and whack balls. Get out your 6 iron and try to hit a target, this will improve your game immensely.
