Golf is a sport that attracts more players than any other outdoor
sport-one of the reasons is the beautiful surroundings and the pleasure
of being on the course to share this experience amongst friends and
Golf has evolved as a sport from the fourteenth century to a passion and a great game of integrity, competitiveness and trust, played in a gentlemanly fashion, with the same aim-knocking a small ball over distances of varying lengths to finally end up in a hole 41/4 inches in diameter.
This is a game where no two playing fields are alike so it is the constantly changing conditions and variety which really define the essence of this very challenging form of recreation. To be able to perform successfully on such a playing field demands the ability to analyse and adjust to variable elements as well as the risk-reward factor, altogether making the game so rewarding or, so humbling.
