What is your favorite thing about the sport of golf. I like the rush of having a great drive, an awesome approach and sinking long putts.

I love the serenity of it. Especially when you’re playing on a course with few people on it. It’s just you, a few clubs and a ball, and the grass. No stress at all. Of course, I’m sure some more serious golfers would beg to differ. :p

I agree with you cornflakes. I am personally not all about the excitement from the game, I'm more about the peacefulness and relaxation that it can bring to your day. Theres nothing like going out on a warm spring day with some family or friends and hitting a few balls around. Theres no competitiveness, just good times and good company. You can drive around all day in a golf cart sipping on a pop and have nothing in the world to worry about. For me, golf is all about the relaxation and the odd competitive game between a few friends.

I enjoy both extremes; the peacefulness of an early round by yourself, watching as your little titelist 2 makes the first trail on the morning dew, and standing over a 5 foot putt on the 18th green with a 5$ press on the line.

Ive been so serious about the game that i forget how relaxing it is to just get out of the house and hit the holes.

Golf is about the only competive sport I can play and not take it so serious because it is more of social sport for me. I enjoy just being able to go out and swing the clubs and talking about life. I find it very relaxed and exciting. I already know I am not the best, so I just play for the fun of it.

Nice thread,

I love how relaxing it is. No worries about anything, I am just able to stand back and swing at a ball for four hours. Don't have to worry about working or getting something done. Just me and a golf ball.

What more can you ask for in a game?

The views you get especially when you are on a links course are amazing, I also love the peice and quiet and the time it gives you to think.

Many reasons. I enjoy the challenge and being able to hang out with my friends. I also find golf relaxing and when I am out there on the course I forget about whatever else is going on in the world for a few hours.

There are many things I love about golf. One would be the fun and excitement it brings. I also agreed on the relaxing factor. Whenever I had my San Diego golf vacation, it makes me interact with the beauty of nature. It gives me a chance to be outside and feel the cool breeze.

The freedome you get when you are on the course by yourself. It is can be the most freedome you will ever feel. Especially on a nice clear day, breeze through your hair, and awesome views. Nothing like it!

I think my favorite thing about golf is that no matter where in the world you play, no matter what the weather conditions are, no matter who you might be playing with and no matter what time or season in which you play, golf is essentially the same game, adapted to everything around you.

I've been playing golf for about 56 years by my calculation. I found I had a natural feeling for the game and I became very good at it at a very young age. It paid for my college education and the golf course was the site of many of my fondest memories and greatest accomplishments. Regardless that old age and back problems have left me with very little of what my game once was, I certainly enjoy it as much as I always did and since it's not a competition to me anymore, I might actually enjoy it more.

When I step onto the golf course, any golf course, I feel like I've come home.
