GOLF

Golf Questions and Answers

Why is golf called golf – It is widely thought that the word ‘golf’ came from the word ‘club’

Why is golf so hard – “Golf is deceptively simple, but endlessly complicated,” said Arnold Palmer. It’s a tough game but you can play it for decades so there is always plenty of time to improve.

Why is golf 18 holes – The first ever 18 hole golf course was played at St Andrews in 1857, which involved turning four short holes into two and all greens featuring two holes, one to use on the way out and one to use on the way back.

Why is golf dying – Golf clubs in the UK are struggling with some even closing, although a majority of them are actually booming. Like all sports, it goes through its peaks and troughs, but overall the game is in good shape.

Why is golf so expensive – Golf courses are on vast amounts of land and require huge man-power to maintain. Technology in clubs is genuinely groundbreaking and you need 14 of them, plus golf balls, clothing and shoes. It is expensive, but not much more expensive than other sports.

Why is golf so popular – Back to that Arnold Palmer quote…”it is without doubt the greatest game mankind has invented.”

Why is golf addictive – Because you can never master it. Every round or driving range session makes you want to come back and improve. Plus, you get to meet and socialise with friends, exercise, etc.
