I started playing golf in my late 40’s after receiving an adult education class flyer mailed out by our local high school. There were several classes offered. My husband suggested ballroom dancing, but I thought golf would be more fun, so we took up the game.
Golf teaches you life lessons. It is a game of integrity, honor, and character. It teaches you to be honest and forthright which are necessary skills in life. It also teaches you endurance and resiliency while playing, which will help you be a better person.
Additionally, golf teaches business skills when you make deals and persuade clients. It is a social sport where you can have conversations and friendships with people you have never met. Golf requires you to be respectful, courteous, and polite.
Have a new golfer program which covers what you need to know when you start playing golf (basic equipment, dress codes, info about courses, etc.). Also have mentoring programs for new golfers.
My parents taught me and my siblings to be honest, work hard, study hard, and always obey and respect your elders.
Learn how to play golf at a younger age and volunteer to help introduce and teach the game to children/youth.
