You typically play with at least one other person and sometimes a golf course will team you up with other people to make up a golf foursome. Here are 10 reasons why golf is different from any other sport.

  • It is a lifelong sport
  • Every course is different and every shot is different
  • You (should) call penalties on yourself
  • You keep track of your own score or you don’t have to keep score
  • You are ultimately┬áplaying against yourself and the course itself (unless you are in a tournament)
  • You can play individually, in a two-some, threesome, foursome or as a large group
  • It teaches discipline, concentration and promotes courtesy and sportsmanship
  • It really can reduce stress. Nice scenery and relaxed game, if played properly
  • Practicing your swing and putts is often enough to full-fill your urge to play
  • Truly a love-hate sport.
