Myths of Golf (from getintogolf.org)
Golf takes all day?
Golf can take no longer than any other hobby or pastime, there are quicker ways to play the game that fit in with busy lifestyles in which two hours is now the span for most leisure activities such as going to the cinema, dinning out, playing tennis, bowling, going to the gym.
The average round of 18 holes of golf takes four hours. However, you can play just 9 holes which takes half the time fitting conveniently into a busy schedule or ideal for after work. 9-hole rounds are compatible with the Rules of Golf and the handicap system.
Don't let time constraints put you off playing golf, nine holes is fine as less really does mean more…
Golf is stuffy?
Golf is changing – with a new wave of players, fans, locations and playing formats, however many people still think its stuck in the Victorian age when men had to wear a jacket and tie and ladies could only play on selected days and time and weren’t allowed full access to the club. This is not what you’ll find in today’s modern golf clubs. We are vibrant and welcoming with a range of memberships to meet all lifestyles.
Golf is a game for men?
Golf is a game for all. Unlike any other sport, golf’s unique handicap system allows people of different abilities to play and compete together. There are some great women players, such as Laura Davies, Annika Sorenstam and Paula Creamer.
Golf offers a winning combination of exercise, sporting skill and social interaction that make it the perfect tonic for health and happiness.
Golf is an expensive game?
Golf does not need to be expensive and like any other sport you can spend as little or as much as you like. There are playing options, equipment and clothing to suit every budget.
Golf wont keep you fit?
Golf can help keep you active, burn calories, stay in shape, lower cholesterol, reduce the risk of heart disease and research shows it may even help you live longer. You can walk around 4-5 miles in the average game of golf, burn at least 900 calories and will take you more than 10,000 steps, you will easily achieve the recommended 150 minutes of moderate exercise a week recommended by the NHS to keep healthy.
