Why do you love golf?

Recommended Posts

We're all here for one reason, but why? I'm sure everyone has hated golf at some point, whether that be before you took the up the sport or after you got hooked... but we've all been there. The crazy thing is, we always come back to it.

 

Personally, the reasons why I love the game of golf are endless. The camaraderie, the outdoors, the challenges, playing new courses, the list goes on and on.

 

So, why do you love it?

I like golf because it's a stress reliever for me.

Never get to up or down, and any day golfing is better then working.

Golf is like a really good addiction. That long putt you sink"like Tiger" or that incredible drive that seems to go forever. Your first birdie, or eagle, or hole-in-one. How about beautiful nature, good drink and friends. Well that is just the tip of the iceberg for me.

I love golf because there is no timetable. I can play whenever I want, with whoever I want. The game is never the same, be it course, weather or how you feel on that particular day. You are always in search of the day when it all comes together. I also love the social aspect of the game as well, I have met and played with some fantastic folks. Like the folks on this site golfers are generally good to hangout with.

I love it not only for the reasons above like the friendship and challenges but also gives me the opportunity to disconnect from the endless news cycle for several hours. If I wasn't on the course I'd probably be checking the news for the latest disaster, faux pas by a politician, or market results.

I play because it's hard and I like things that aren't easy. It's also gets me off my butt sometimes

Same and same. Even though I know I'll never master it, I'll sure try every chance I get.

Good subject TSauer.

 

There are endless facets to this game I like a lot; The tradition, the challenge of every shot-even on a course you've played many times, the quiet, the camaraderie, the nature, and of course the beer..!

 

My most favorite? The gear of course. I am a hopeless gear junkie for all hobbies or sports I've ever taken up. From baseball, to skiing, bowling, competition shooting, fly fishing and now golf, I gotta have the best gear I can get, or so my ADD brain tells me. As long as I am satisfied that I have the best gear possible, then I cannot ever use it as a scapegoat for any personal performance deficits. I've always rolled this way.

 

Na, forget about all that... Heh, it's really "All about the shooz!" But more on that later in my pending "Shoe HO's Anonymous" thread.... :rolleyes:

Fresh air, exercise, being with buddies, and an athletic challenge that isn't likely to break your ankles or tear up your knees as you get older. No matter how good or bad you are, you compete against yourself, just like everybody else. How could you not love that?

1. How could I forget the beer part? Golf and beer, the best combo.

 

2. I'm the same as you, I love new equipment! It's not like I need it, I just want it. I've always been that way when it comes to PC hardware/components or power tools or any other sort of electronics.

It's as valid a reason as any others have given.

I've played sports all my life and took up golf later in life.  It's the only sport I can physically perform now days and being outdoors is a must for me.  I've made a ton of great friends through golf, the challenge of the game is addicting, and although I'm a hacker, I love heading out for another round.

Love the scenery, the camaraderie, the challenge, & sometimes the competition or the solitude. Best game ever...

For me, it's all about family memories. I took it for granted when I was young, but since I started playing after my 10+ year hiatus, I've come to appreciate all the time they spent teaching me the game. Also, the green fees they spent holy moly! I've said it before on these boards, but if you play with one of your loved ones -- cherish that! Forget about how your round is going and just be thankful you're able to get out there and play with them.

My grandfather got both my dad and me hooked on golf. Three generations of the family on the course. He's not with us anymore, but my girls both play. Still three generations of the family on the course.
