Golf: More Than 18 Holes

If there is one sport that is always misunderstood, it has to be golf. For the longest time, people have poked fun at this beautiful game. There are those who laugh at it to the point of not considering it a sport as it does not require a huge amount of athletic skills. By the same token, there are people who make fun of it because it is such a difficult sport to master.

But it doesn't take a seasoned player to appreciate the beauty of the sport. If you're  just  starting out, we suggest you hang on to your clubs, shoes, caps, golf cart, golf cart cover, all the things that allow you to play the game. Won't take long to reap the rewards, that's for sure.

Good stress-reliever

For most, if not all, golfers, the golf course is a great escape. With the lush greens and the calm surroundings, no one will ever argue. To some it is therapeutic. Another thing: in golf, you can actually play on the very same spot where the pros play!

Lessons to be learned

Cheesy as it may sound, golf teaches a thing or two about life. It is quite a humbling sport, and witnessing someone progress is something special. Anything you draw inspiration from is a good thing. In golf, you inspire and get inspired.

Good for everyone

Everyone can actually relate to it. It doesn't matter how young or old you are, if you take time to understand this beautiful sport, you will learn why people stick to it. They say golf enthusiasts are a passionate bunch, and this is simply true. It is also a good activity for the family and friends. If you're friends in golf, you are friends for a lifetime.

If you have made a career built around the sport, good for you! The last thing you will ever worry about is jealous people.

Golf's got heart

Hate to brag but the PGA donates to charity, perhaps more than any sport in the world.

Golf is such a unique sport. If you are a player or has ever tried playing, thanks for appreciating this article. If not, then stay jealous.
