When I started playing with my current gf I played with my off hand and it was wonderful. We're both right handed, so when I was throwing left handed in field work, I could face her and she could mirror my actions. I was truly learning from the beginning, so i knew exactly what she was going through and we could learn together how to throw. Then, when we got on the course, we were actually quite competitive, and it didn't take long before she was beating me. All the while I'm learning a skill that has come in handy during a round, and she's not getting discouraged that I can throw 3 times as far.

Play with the oldest putter you can find. Or, if you actually want to work on your form/technique as well.....grab an Aero and only play with that. It'll force to you have pure form, throw straight, and carve your line.

competition/challenge

Get a deck of the "Ript challenge" playing cards and let her play the cards against you as you play. They are very challenging and a fun way to develop different parts of your game. She will be more comp' if only she is using them

If she has a +18 handicap, then if you dont beat her by 18 strokes than you lose. Hopefully she will get better and her handicap/average will get better.

She's more into playing with other women. I'm a lucky guy.

When my wife first started playing it made it a lot of fun to have her basically play best shot doubles and I played worst shot doubles. Two shots from every lie, she got to choose her better shot, I had to take the worse (including having to make both putts). Extra practice and a more competitive round.

That way most cards will help her by forcing your shot selection or putter/driver switching (she will get double help because most don't use overhands, rollers, grenades, etc but seeing them in action can help her learn new shots that can make up for not having much distance), but still add some random fun for you both.
