A A Milne, the author of the Winnie the Pooh stories, once said, “Golf is so popular simply because it is the best game in the world at which to be bad”. This is so true. After all, if you’re having a bad round of golf, there is still so much to enjoy. The fresh air and a bracing walk can’t help but give one a sense of well being.
Of course, if you are having a bad round of golf in torrential wind and rain, it can be difficult to see the positive side. It is not surprising that so many people are going on golf holidays. They can choose sunny climes and design a golf holiday that has all the best elements such as glorious sunshine, beautiful scenery and a variety of courses.
Some of the most popular locations for golf holidays are Spain, Portugal and the Canary Islands. These locations have the added advantage of being great countries to visit even if you don’t play golf. The cuisine, laid back lifestyle and the many other attractions make for a perfect break in the sunshine.
There are many reasons that golf is so popular. Most people seem to have a sporting instinct and enjoy competition. It doesn’t have to be against an opponent though. Playing against a course or simply looking to improve your handicap can be just as much fun. In fact the handicap system makes golf a game where people of all sorts of different standards can enjoy each other’s company and a friendly rivalry.
