Golf is fun? Is it?

OK so is it really a question or just a statement that we all say when it is not going how we want it to go. I would say that I love golf and I find it to be very fun and enjoyable. To those of you that don’t, it is time to take a moment and step back and think why isn’t it fun anymore this golf game.

 Funny Pants

So as a kid I thought golfers were a bunch of idiots in funny pants hitting a tiny white ball. In reality, they were making a ton of money and playing for sponsors and golf gear to have to match those funny pants. I can say I don’t’ own any funny-looking golf pants and probably won’t anytime soon but man were some of the crazy cool looking back at it now.

So is golf fun for you if you are not having fun why not find yourself a pair of those funny pants and then find one of those group golf outings that you can drink a bunch of beers and yell at you are buddies with some tunes playing in the background. Be careful the golf course police don’t come out and get you. You can get kicked off of the golf course for negative attitudes and activities. But as a beginner in golf, the first thing you must learn is that golf is super hard so try to make it super fun.

If you don’t want to go all crazy with you are outfit just find a funny hat. Golf is not meant to be a huge deal in outfits and looking amazing. At most, there are only 3 other guys or girls on the tee of the hole with you so dress to impress them and don’t forget that everyone has their own opinions on everything so have fun with it and forget the people that you think will make fun of you. You don’t need them you are at the course for golfing and want to have some fun doing it.

The Right Stuff

What is the right stuff to have when you go out on the golf course? Well, pants are a great start but then there’s the golf balls, tees, clubs, gloves, hats, ball markers, towels, beer and so on. OK maybe not the beer but one can hope. As I said you need a lot of stuff to go out on the golf course. The best way to do this might be to find a friend who is into golf and have them show you the best things to bring out for you are the first outing.

So what are the best golf clubs? I tell you what there are so many options its unbelievable. I have a couple of links to some golf shops you can take a look at to get some information. If you go to Fairway Golf USA they even have Japanese golf clubs for sale. You can get lots of custom golf clubs on this website also. Golf clubs can be expensive and once you are a better golfer you will find that the better golf clubs do help on you are golf shots. But don’t jump into buying the most expensive clubs off the bat in case you decide to quit after one golf season.

Now you also can get some other golf equipment from gloves to tees there are options on everything that you can use as a golfer. Start off small don’t go crazy you can always add more equipment as the year goes on or wait until the next season.

Golf Course

Now when it comes to the golf course there are a few things that you need to remember. The first of many is that you are not the only one on the golf course. If you are playing in a benefit for a friend or business you don’t need to worry as much about the rules but they still do apply when it comes to playing golf on the golf course.

One rule that will never change EVER on the golf course is being super quiet on the course when people are taking their golf shots. It’s a big no-no if you make someone screws up the shot and they turn to look and see who did it to them. A lot of times if a course official is on hand when this happens you might be asked to leave the golf course.

As far as golf rules go they are usually posted on the first hole of the course or on the golf cart. If you don’t know what the rules are you can always ask a course official to give you a copy or show you where to look for the rules. The best part about it is the rules aren’t there to make you have less fun just be calm and quiet when you need to be and it can be so much fun.

19 Hole

Now you have played your first round of golf or you are hundredth round you need to cool down before headed home. Most golf courses have a bar or restaurant and bar that you can go to after you are round and find a cool beverage and some dinner to fill up you are empty stomach from the long round.

Most of the food is amazing after the round due to the fact that a golf round of 18 holes can take four hours or more. Remember to drink some water on the course if it is super hot where you are playing golf. If you are not hydrated you will not have fun out on the course either.

Remember the bar is there for you to have some fun and it’s a great place to meet some new people that you know are golfers and make some friends in the process.

Forever Fun Golfing

So now that you have played around thought about some of the right equipment that you need time to hold on to those memories and make some more. The best thing that I have found about golf is that I can go back tomorrow or next weekend and have as much fun or more than I did today.

Find some friends make it fun. You can even play some holes for money or bragging rights for the week if you need to add something unique to you are golf rounds. Play for a buck a hole and try to beat the best guy in the group and when you do look out because he is gonna be super mad about it.

I hope that this helps you out when looking into playing golf. I know I love golf and can’t wait to go again but for now, I work on this website and dream of some low round fun. If at any time you find you have questions about golf or about any content on my website please feel free to leave you are comments and questions below and I will be so happy to get back to you as fast as possible.

Thank you

  1. Golf is such a fun sport for so many people.  I myself don’t like playing alone, maybe it’s because I am not that good. HAHA. But I will say that golfing with friends for fun doing like a “Texas Scramble” style is awesome. 

    Driving the carts, whacking the ball around and of course how relaxing being out in the grass in the sun is.  This all makes golf a fun time.

    When did you first find golf? Great post and super funny too.

    • Well my dad got me into golf when I was maybe five.  Loved it ever since but never really got good.  I’ve had season passes to my local courses and played 70 times a year weather dependant.  Have been off of work with a broken foot for the last 9 weeks and this has been a fun new endeavor starting a website business.  Thank you for taking the time to read through my post and comment about my post.  Great luck golfing to you in the future and have some fun with your friends on the golf course. 

      Thank you

  2. I personally like mini golf or drive golf where I do not have to think much. It is a rich people sports that they just want to network while relaxing. It is expensive for me and you have to actually practice your pose 2 times a week to be accurate. But I have to say that I also enjoy golf. It is a perfect place to unwind from the city and get to go on a little car and just zoom. Might start doing it again next summer. 🙂

    • Oh yea golf can be super frustrating but in the same way when it all comes around and you put together some great golf shots money isn’t an issue.  You don’t need to buy the most expensive golf equipment to go out and try to better your golf game.  I found growing up that using my friends old clubs or my dad’s even was good enough to learn the fundamentals of the game.  It is and can be a very expensive game but you have to take that out of consideration if you find that you can have some fun and enjoy it with your friends.  If you continue to go golfing good luck in the future and try to go have fun doing it as it can be tons of fun.  Thank you for checking out my site and commenting about it enjoy the day.

      Thank you

    • I have played on many golf leagues and had season passes to my local courses. It is a relaxing sport if you can have the right mindset when you go out. I always try to have a super positive attitude when going golfing and it seems to help me get through all of the bad shots. Thank you for reading and have a wonderful holiday season.

  3. I’ve really always wanted to try golf, but there’s no courses around me where I could try which is a shame. I feel like it’s probably a more difficult sport than people give it credit for because you have to account for so many things. Just wondering, does the material of the club matter?

    • Well as a person that would just be starting out you will not want to spend tons of money on the best golf clubs and then find out you hate golf. If you happen to get out to a golf course a lot of times you can rent a set for a reasonable price. Once you know you like it and want to buy a set I would recommend going for a cheaper set at first until your really comfortable at golfing. To bad there aren’t any courses near you there are 5 course with 30 minutes of my house so I have lots of options. Now this time of the year they are all closed being that it’s winter and really cold. As far as the club material goes you can get them made out of many materials and as you progress you might find yourself going to a golf store and using a simulator to try hitting some golf clubs. I have found that to be the best way to get golf equipment for myself although I tend to not buy lots as they are expensive but the better the golf club I have found the better you can hit them but you need to know how to use the golf clubs correctly before stepping up to a PGA Tour quality club. I hope this helped you out if you have any other questions feel free to ask away.
      Thank you
