5 Reasons You Should Play Golf Even if You Know Nothing About it

There are many reasons you should play golf, but why?

Why do so many people like it?

You hit a small ball into an open field, try to make it land on a green area, and then try to make the ball into a small hole.

What could be more fun than that?

That doesn’t sound like the most exciting thing to do but believe me when I say that golf is much better than you think.

I’ve recently picked up the sport/hobby, and now I know why it’s one of the better hobbies for you and your family.

If you are on the fence about picking up the sport, let these reasons will help you decide.

Here are the best reasons why you should play golf.


1. Be One With Nature

There’s no better feeling than being out on the golf course.

It’s one of the most beautiful places you will ever see, and its beauty will leave your jaw on the floor.

Whenever I find myself at a golf course (even those that aren’t that pretty), I can not help but sit there and soak in the beauty that comes with a golf course.

The way the trees surround everything, the way the grass is well-kept, and the overall appearance of a golf course is amazing.

If there is one reason you should play golf, this is it.

2. Golf Will Humble You

I know men, in general, tend to be cocky, and being humble is the last thing they want to be.

They want to show how strong they are and whatever other reasons some men act the way they do.

Now, few things humble a man, and I can only think of golf.

You’ll have Mr. Macho Man get up thinking he will rip the cover off the ball.

It’s not going to happen.

Golf is one thing in life where you will learn to be humble almost immediately.

Either that or you quit.

3. Golf is Fun

Although golf is one of the most challenging things you will ever do, it does not mean it isn’t fun.

I can have the worst golf outing, but I’m cool if I hit one good shot.

Being out th the course and challenging myself is fun, and my score wouldn’t matter.

If you want fun, why not add golf to your staycation?

There’s a lot to enjoy about golf, and you won’t know unless you try it.

4. Great For Your Health

Being on the course is excellent for your health, especially your mental health.

It clears your mind from the natural stress we deal with daily.

If you work long hours and don’t like your job, you will see how you can forget about everything on the golf course.

Either you’re enjoying the game and nature or getting pissed off because you can’t find your ball.

Either way, golf will benefit your overall health.

5. Exercise

What better way to get exercise than through something you enjoy?

Remember when you don’t know why your body is sore?

That’s what will happen when you play golf.

Golf will give you exercise, even if you don’t feel like you did anything.

As a dad in my 40s, it’s only best that I play golf, as keeping up with the youngins on a football field isn’t as easy as it used to be.

Conclusion – There are Many Reasons You Should Play Golf

Golf is a fantastic sport and recreational activity.

It fits any person’s physical ability, and you don’t have to be good at it.

You can up your game and be a competitive golfer, but you can always keep it recreational, as many of us do.

At the end of the day, it’s you against the course, as everyone else is too busy worrying about their own game.

Get up and get out and enjoy the game of golf.

There are many reasons to play golf, but I’m sure you will see that on your own.
