Golf-A Game For All to Play
Golf is the game that people of all ages, sizes, ability levels can play for a lifetime. Golf has the ability to teach honor, integrity, patience, communication and competitiveness. Golf is the only sport that the players serve as their own referees and they call penalties on themselves.
The power to honor the game and its rules teaches integrity and sportsmanship. In order for a golfer of any caliber to enjoy the challenge of the game, he/she much gain the patience necessary to enjoy the good shots and deal with the bad ones. Communication skills are developed and improved as you spend two to four hours with your competitors discussing your best shots, favorite golf courses, jobs, family and professions.
During a round of golf one may find that much can be accomplished. A golfer may have the shot of their life, close business deals, start friendships that last a lifetime, or even meet there future spouse. In other sports the athlete may have the shot of a lifetime, or meet a friend, but it’s hard to close business deals or meet the love of your life while on the football field or basketball court.
If you are a golfer, enjoy the game and all it has to offer. Share the game with your family and teach the values it has to offer to your kids or grandkids. As a grandchild who learned the game and its values from my grandmother I can tell you that those memories and moments will be cherished forever.
If you are thinking of picking up the sport, give it a try. It won’t be long before you are hooked and enjoying the challenge as we all do when we step foot on the first tee box. Look up your local teaching professional or best friend and ask them for some pointers and to help get you started in the right direction.
Enjoy the Game
