About Golf

Family walk arm round HEADER    

Golf courses might have hills, slopes and bunkers, but the game itself is the ultimate level playing field. Literally, almost anyone can play.

There’s no better sport for bringing people together – whatever their age, gender, background or ability.

From age three to 103, male and female, in the city and the country, disabled and blind – all can enjoy a round. You can play in a group or on your own. And thanks to handicapping, a beginner can have an exciting game with a pro. There aren’t many sports where that’s the case.

The basic idea is so simple – hit a ball into a hole with a club. But from that simple premise has come an infinite variety of courses, holes, types of shots, tactics. You can play for 50 years and still be learning about the game – and yourself!

It’s easy to take up. Coaching is widely available to get you off to the best possible start. To take up golf is to join a family. You’ll make friends and you can play for the rest of your life.

Golf is international. Almost every country in the world has a course, so you can play on holiday and if you travel on business.

The game is played in the fresh air, amid trees, by beaches and over (hopefully) rivers. Golf keeps you fit, rewards skill and helps you build concentration. Finally, golf is fun! Give it a try and see.
