I kind of feel that we are exposing them to a new sport they havent tried before. In my opinion, I say why not? The more people you bring, the more fun you can have... The only thing is: Dont expect to be hitting those black diamonds all week with the newbies. Expect to just do some slow solid runs on the Greens and bunny hills. My GF is just starting, and she doesn't go as often as I do... When we go together this saturday, it will be a "back to basics" day for me... Which never hurts!
Hope this helps
