YonexThe Rising Popularity of Golf
A lot of people wonder why golf is so popular. One factor is that it is a sport that you can take up at any age. Whether you are a small child that has aspirations to be the next Tiger Woods, or if you have just retired and want something more to fill your leisure time, then golf could be the sport for you.

Another reason is that golf is a sport that is available to people of all levels of fitness. Although it will help your game to be fit, you don’t necessarily have to be down at the gym every week flexing your muscles! In fact, golf in itself can help you to keep fit, particularly in later years. Think about it, how far do you walk around the golf course for a round of 18 holes? A lot of golf courses are in the region of 6-7000 yards which equates to around a 4 mile walk. And that does not take into account any zigzagging across the course that you might do! How often would you otherwise go out for a 4 mile walk?

Another reason for the popularity of golf is that it is a sport that you can enjoy with your friends, family or work colleagues. You can have a business meeting on a golf course, catch up with friends and gossip with family members.

Also, those who play golf at the top level are from a variety of backgrounds and ages. This is a sport where you have Tom Watson competing with players less than half his age and sometimes coming off better!

There are lots of opportunities too for taking up golf – within Yorkshire there is one of the widest selections of golf courses in the country. It is also very possible nowadays to play some of these courses reasonably cheaply and you can always start off on a par 3 course until you think you are able to play a full course.

So, if you are looking to take up a new sport – Golf is a great one to consider for all people of all ages – as it combines exercise, skill, fun, being outdoors as well as all the great social aspects of golf.
