Attraction to the Game
Reasons golfers like golf:
The opportunity to spend time outdoors (nature, fresh air, etc)
The social aspect – spending time with friends & family doing something we enjoy
Ball striking – the feeling you get when you hit a great shot
The challenge of the game – striving to improve – it’s never-ending
The exercise – getting out for a good walk – staying active
Stress relief – getting away from my every day pressures – an escape
Golf courses – the variety of designs, scenery, landscape, etc.
The values of the game (honesty, integrity, sportsmanship, etc.)
The mental game – thinking my way around the course
The competition – competing – the winning and losing
Keeping score – measuring my performance against the course/previous rounds
The game’s history & tradition - it’s one of the oldest sports in the world
Practicing – spending time on the range or practice facility working on my game
Opportunity to spend time with business clients/colleagues away from the office
