Golf is one of the oldest sports dating back to the late 1200’s. Today, millions of people enjoy the game but if you’re new to the idea or just starting out, you should know the benefits of playing this great sport. Here are 3 top reasons why you should play golf.
Relaxation: If this is not the number one reason to play, then you may as well stop. While it is easy to get frustrated when you’re playing bad, it is important to remember why you’re out there in the first place. Having time for yourself to relax and unwind is important.
Lifetime Sport: Unlike many other sports, Golf is played by those both young and old. It’s not a sport you stop playing after high school or college. In essence that is what makes this game so beautiful. And it’s not about drinking as many beers as you can before you make the turn, but rather getting to know someone you just met and creating new friendships.
Competing against yourself: What is unique about golf is the fact that you’re in control of how well you play. If you hit a bad putt, you only have yourself to blame. This is why people get so frustrated with the game but it is also why they come back for more. No one has ever shot a perfect round of golf and it is because of this reason golfers have a burning desire to always improve their game.
By no means are these the only reasons why you should think about playing this great game, but it should offer you reason enough to start. So what are you waiting for? Get out and play!
