the elite and famous. And perhaps there is a good reason to think so since it is a game that involves proper etiquette and maintains high standards. All over the world, golf is recognized as one of the most expensive and exclusive sports.
But more than just a sport, it can also be a great way to socialize. It is a way by which people practice their skills relating to precision and accuracy. It also makes a great hobby to pass the time away and can be practiced every day.
It is social.
Golf is seen as a social sport because of the many opportunities it gives players to get to know one another. While playing on a course, there is plenty of time to get to know your partner or those who are in your “flight,” (usually a maximum of four or five players). It practices social skills, too, because of the rules associated with etiquette. One must observe courtesy when golfing such as keeping a low voice and waiting patiently for one’s turn. There is also an honesty system involved when counting how many strokes one takes in each hole. All the rules are associated with a certain behavior that is expected of each and every golfer once he steps into the course
Precision and accuracy.
When practicing golf often, one learns how to be precise and accurate with his swing. It is important to get to the target within the least amount of strokes in order to win and that takes precision in the swing. There are many conditions that may affect the swing such as the weather and the club one is using. So, it takes practice to get this part right. It is also important to hit shots accurately as the object of the game is to get the ball into the hole or nearest to the pin. So as one takes a swing, the most important thing is to keep the ball as close to the target as possible.
It takes time.
A regular game consists of 18 holes which should last players about two hours or more. But during those two hours, it is not all about playing. Time is taken while waiting for one’s turn to take his or her shots, it may also take a while to walk to the next hole, and time is needed to analyze each shot. This presents a lot of opportunities for players to talk and get to know each other while waiting for their turns. It is also very leisurely to walk along a golf course or to drive using a golf cart.
Golfing is perfect for those who like to take things easy and who enjoy having good company while playing a game. Though it also requires that one have a membership in a country club, golf shoes, clubs, and proper apparel, it is enjoyable nonetheless and is a great way to spend a lazy Saturday or Sunday afternoon.
