We are a strange group. Playing golf used to be an activity for those who earlier would have played tennis, for the group that is a group by itself and where new members are not welcome. Not so any more.
Golf is an activity; some even dare to call it a sport. In countries like Sweden and the US it what ?everyone? plays, and other countries like Norway are close behind. Even in Germany golf is growing in popularity as new golf clubs open, price schemes make it affordable and every half retired football player seems to take it up.
We invite you into this strange world, but be aware that it is a world that it is hard to escape from. You had better set aside enough time to be able to handle your new fascination.
