Has Football taken over you – spirit, soul and body? When it is time for the World Cup or the weekly English Premier League (EPL), does the rush of adrenaline you experience amaze even you?
Or, is yours Basketball? Does the mere feel of the leather in your hands take your breath away? Are you enraptured by the repeated act of getting the ball down the hoop? What brings the thrill: the energy of the 100metre dash or the endurance of the marathon?
Well, you haven’t seen it all until you try this one. It is a game that is both fun and prestigious by its very nature. This game separates you from the multitude and takes you right into the class of the elite. I’m talking about the game of golf!
Since it began in eastern Scotland in the 15th century, the game of golf has grown in stature and acceptance around the world among all ages. It is a game that has been enjoyed around the world.
Golf has helped create a bond among nations, territories, friends and even adversaries. More often than not, the game of golf has transformed not a few people from the realm of the mortal into immortal in the history books.
In Nigeria, the home of over 150million people, acceptance of the game may be slow and unimpressive yet. However, with the up to 100 golf courses in Nigeria today, the future of golf is bright in the country.
So, why do you need to play the game of golf?
Smart People Play Golf
One of the characteristics of smart people is their constant urge to achieve success and create records. They are always on the lookout for opportunities and paths to greatness. They are focused. They have a vision. Those who play golf very often embody these characteristics of hard work, smart work and success.
Golf players are always overcoming obstacles. This is because the game of golf presents a challenge at every course for players.
Top players focus on what’s important: where the ball needs to go and what the ball has to do when it gets to its destination.
Golfers make vision their friend as they swing the ball across nature into the hole.
Indeed, the golf course is filled with smart people on their way to becoming even smarter.
You Play With Nature
Working and living in metropolitan cities around Nigeria may take you far away from nature. One of the ways to come closer to nature is to come into the serenity of the golf course, as most of them are built to have surrounding natural elements. When you play golf, people are there to support you; but so also is nature.
It is commonplace to see butterflies landing on your shoulders and the sun radiating as you swing.
As they breathe in the fresh air, veteran golfers have been known to play among zebras, giraffe, hawks, eagles, birds, turkeys, dog and rabbits.
Golf Builds Character
One of the beauties of the game of golf is that it builds your character from zero to hero. It is probably the game of golf that allows each golfer to be his/her own gatekeeper, compliance and ethics official.
A golfer is expected to know the rules of the game, abide by the rules, and when s/he infringes on the rules, it is expected that a golfer calls a penalty on himself/herself. Can you imagine that? That’s awesome!
It takes some strength of character to own up to wrongdoing. That’s what golf offers. It offers an opportunity for truthfulness; it offers self-discipline; character; and personal transformation.
What an amazingly beautiful game golf is!
Golf is Good for Business
The golf course is one the veritable places to make connections and expand your network. With the number of high networth individuals taking to golf, you can be assured that when you make friends with them on the golf course and you nurture the relationship in a mutually beneficial manner, your products and services will be “top-of-their-mind”.
