Izzato, it's currently difficult with the lockdown and considerable restrictions on playing golf.
Whenever that's all over, join a club, even a club at a public course. They'll give you a rule book for you to read. Chapter 1 pretty much covers etiquette but you should really read the whole book if you can stomach it.

The club will send you out with some tolerant guys who will help you to get involved. After a few rounds, you'll be given a handicap - no favours, it's quite technical but you need not worry about that.

Once you are 'up and running', you'll find some guys that you like playing with, perhaps of a similar age and you won't look back.

Hey buddy,
It took me a long time to find someone at the same stage and dilemma as to whether playing alone or not.

I'm in Hawthorn, 6 km east Melbourne CBD.
I've been in the range for a few months and ready to start the 9-hole journey on a course.

I suggest we meet once at the range, then we book in at a public course of our convenience.
Drop me a message to set a time.

I look forward to hearing from you.
