golf as a sport

If there is one sport that I would like to try, it would probably be golf. It looks interesting and I love to play amongst nature and enjoy the greeneries. It is also not a contact sport, so there is a very little chance of getting hurt or having myself injured. It would also be fun to see the world by playing golf and visit the many golf resorts and having golf holidays. I don't know of any basketball resorts, but I do know golf holiday destinations such as Chiemsee, which is the most popular golf holiday destination in Germany.

The popularity of golf has increased through the years. In 2005 Golf Digest calculated that there were nearly 32,000 golf courses in the world, approximately half of them in the United States. The countries with most golf courses in relation to population, starting with the best endowed were: Scotland, New Zealand, Australia, Ireland, Canada, Wales, United States, Sweden, and England.

With golf, one needs the necessary equipment to play - from golf clubs to golf shoes to golf gear. There are numerous golf shops where one can shop by brand and also enjoy discounts for a specific equipment.

There are children who study to play golf and golf schools offer a course for the young ones who would like to learn the golf sport. If one day Joaqui would show interest in playing this sport, we would definitely support him and I might even learn the sport myself.
