The game of golf is now played by people of all ages in nearly every country. Anyone - men, women, young or old, amateur or professional can enjoy golf.
The game is steeped in tradition. The rules are uniform the world over and the unique handicapping system allows people of different abilities to play with and against each other. The game is a stimulating challenge combined with getting out in the fresh air in pleasant surroundings. Golf is not only enjoyable, it is an excellent way of exercising, as an average 18 holes usually involves walking between six and seven kilometres!
