Let's look at the most common reasons for golf's popularity. Why should you discover golf and make it your hobby?

Ever tried to play golf? Also, never shared the interests of golfers? It is safe to say that you are missing out; this game is fascinating. Golf is a game that brings together people of all ages, genders, and classes.

Learn more about golf and cricket at The most common reasons to try golf are:

  • Age is not a barrier to the game.

  • Golf is a universal game.

  • Playing golf is healthy.

  • Golf is within everyone's reach.

Age is not a problem for the game of golf.

There are statements that the game of golf begins to play only after retirement. But, these conclusions are very far from the truth because anyone can play golf at any age.

Among the people who play golf, there are 80-year-olds and even 5-year-old; this game does not require any restrictions on age. So start developing your passion for golf, and you can also start whenever you want.

Golf is a game for everyone.

Golf is quite widespread throughout the world. Golf is a universal game, with sport, entertainment, and recreation. In golf, great attention and respect are given to following a fair game. Here in the place of honor, there is always honesty.

Golf is a delight for the soul.

The game of golf is given great reverence in the region of Europe and America. This prevalence and love of the game show that many people liked it so much that it has grown into a style and way of life. Recently there has been a growing interest in the game of golf in the Ukrainian expanses.

This game is not impossible to enjoy; everyone will find something for themselves in golf.

Playing golf is not just enjoyable but also very useful.

The game of golf does not benefit the development of muscles throughout the body, which is very useful. Doctors have long recognized that the most significant benefit of those sports games is that they do not require heavy physical exertion, but fatigue occurs gradually. For the good daily training of a person physically, walking is just perfect and playing golf, you have to walk enough.

To start playing golf does not require special physical training. Also, playing golf is not limited by age or gender. Golf is a family hobby because even children can play it.

The golf game widens the social circle.

In America, golf is at the top of the game choices for corporate spending time. Employees can step out of the office confines and start socializing casually, developing and strengthening their bonds by playing this game.

Some schools are even beginning to offer the game of golf to develop their social circle, including corporate ones. The culture and tradition of golf suggest mutual assistance, honesty, and fairness. The golf style is directly influenced by the type of behavior in life and business, and an experienced golfer will be able to spot this.

Equality in competition

By playing golf with the winner of many championships, everyone can prevail. It is perhaps the only game that can provide this kind of equality. The partner here can be the most experienced player or the beginner. If competition doesn't make your blood boil, you can enjoy the game.

Playing golf is quite economical.

A large number of people around the world believe that playing golf is very expensive and that it is a game for millionaires. This opinion is not at all justified. That would start to play golf, of course, need a particular financial investment, but the cost of money is required to practice any sport.

Buying clubs, paying for lessons, making club fees, many people forget that clubs bought once can serve for about 20 - 30 years; moreover, from the beginning, it is not necessary to buy the whole set, and you can do with some, the entry fees are always only one-time.

Thus, the longer you play golf, the cheaper it will cost.

Unique benefits of golf clubs and memberships

A considerable advantage of golf membership clubs relative to membership clubs in other sports is that by joining a club alone, you become a member of every golf club in the world.

So many fans and professionals of the game of golf got acquainted with this beautiful sport, spending a vacation in southern Europe, and did not want to part with it anymore. Since, on the south of coast placed a lot of fields, where everyone can discover the sport.

You can play whenever you want

No matter how the game of golf is described, nothing can convey all the emotions that a golfer experiences stepping onto the course and hitting the ball. To play golf, you do not have to choose a particular time; this game can be played whenever you want, as long as it is light outside. Trying to play golf for the first time, some immediately lose their head, and some need time to understand all the juice of golf. The game of golf is beautiful views, fresh air, the great company of decent people, and much more.

Fair play

Golf is a separate world that has had its own rules since 1744. And these rules must be followed by everyone: young and old, poor and rich, beautiful and ordinary, famous and not so famous. And if in real life it's silly to look for justice, especially if you're over 40, then this is where it belongs. There is a basic rule: if you train and play a lot, you get a result and win. You can not cheat: only a beginner thinks that no one during the game will not notice the lies in the calculation of strokes. Also, everyone sees any rule violations, such as moving the ball to a more comfortable place or not marking the ball on the green. 

Golf is a gentlemen's game, and if they don't tell you to your face that you "got it wrong" when you counted strokes on the second hole, it doesn't mean that no one noticed. Because golf is prestigious, many entrepreneurs have come into the game. They are used to dictating their rules to the world and achieving their goals quickly. However, golf, as we have found out, is a different world and a fair world. Social distinctions are erased here; athletic talent and diligence win at tournaments, and money cannot buy prizes and firm results. That's why business people often, gritting their teeth, applaud a weak 12-year-old boy who easily beats everyone he can get his hands on.

New Travels

Travel is a very specialty of the golf industry. Once you start playing, you'll want to travel to different courses. For example, one guy I know has managed to play 1,300 various methods. Some people collect beer coasters, and others contain courses to play. First and foremost, of course, you have to visit the sanctuary of all golfers - Scotland. Here you understand the game's history and how it began, imagining yourself as a shepherd with a stubby stick and a leather ball. The golf course in Brora left an extraordinary impression. 

Playing between peacefully grazing goats, sheep, and cows, next to the sea and cliffs gives an incomparable feeling of freedom, closeness to nature, and absorption in the game. To go to Scotland and not play in St. Andrews would be an unforgivable mistake. Still, unfortunately, after Dornoch Golf Club, where everything screams of golf history, St. Andrews seemed to me artificial, reminiscent of Disneyland. When Scotland is over for you, there are two golf Meccas ahead. Turkish Belek (where all golfers go in winter) and Florida. Then Spain, Portugal, Italy, Morocco, and Canada. Golf courses galore, the main thing is to have good company, and you are lucky with the weather.
