Golf - a Posh Game or Good Relaxation?

By: Trine Jorgensen

So Golf, ay?

Is it still a game for the extremely wealthy or is it now becoming more and more accessable to the rest of us?

It must be the latter. So many of my not wealthy friends have taken op Golf. And they love it. They are not very old so the thing about it's only rich retired people playing, isn't true. But why do they play? Is it to smell how the sweet life smells or do they really enjoy it?

They LOVE it! They are absolutely crazy about running around on a great big lawn with all their equipment, their never-before-used gloves and their shiny clubs. They say they like the fresh air and the accuracy of the game. "It's a lot harder than it looks"! Gee, really??? If it wasn't hard I suppose the PGA and Masters prizes would be a lot smaller...

I want to try it now and if I start golfing around, I'm sure everybody can/will. I'll buy the right socks, a cap and a V-neck shirt and I'll make sure to keep out of the sand traps.....Or stay there and have a picnic if I land in one....

If you search the internet you'll find loads of sites describing everything from rules of the game to the lefthanded clubs. It's easy to get started if you want to.

The thing is that golf to me always will be a bit posh. But is that a bad thing? Isn't it okay that we mortals feel posh now and then?!

That will be my new year resolution. Being more posh by either buying a small dog and giving it a diamond collar or start playing golf!
