A 'Tee-rrific' Father's Day

The Makings of a "Tee-rrific" Father's Day

Mention the word golf and the word "father" may immediately come to mind. It is a common belief that every dad has at least one golf-themed gift lurking somewhere in his closet, garage, or man cave, whether he plays the game or not.

It's true that golf is not a game for everyone. To some, it may seem to be purely focused on rules and proper etiquette that make it intimidating, exhausting, or challenging to try and learn. Does it up the cool factor to know that the sport was actually banned three times since its inception? Scotland, which is the birthplace of the game, actually banned it for interfering with military training, as it was too big of a distraction. Who knew that this seemingly innocuous pastime was actually the sport of rebels?

Rebel or not, the reasons that some fathers, grandfathers, or father figures alike embrace the sport of golf are vast. Here are just a few:

  • Fitness - from the muscles you use to swing the club, to the walking you do while traversing the course, it is a great way to add to your fitness routine.
  • Challenging, yet simple to learn - you can be an expert or a novice when it comes to playing the game. There is always something to learn each and every time, as even if played on the same course, your game is never repeated.
  • Mood elevator - a sport outdoors in the fresh air improves your mood considerably, as sunlight increases the serotonin in your brain for an instantly improved mood. Sunshine also decreases blood pressure, and since sunlight is a provider of Vitamin D - it actually strengthens your bones.
  • Family Sport - the whole family or a group of people can enjoy golf. From beginners to experts, you can all play at the same time, and enjoy it together.
  • Relationships - from personal to professional, a golf game is a great way to spend a morning or afternoon with the important people in your life. A whole family or group of people can enjoy golf together no matter each person's skill level. Business get-togethers can also involve a game of golf.

With benefits like this, it seems to be a good idea that everyone should try golf, at least once in their lifetimes. With Father's Day just around the corner, it seemed the perfect time to showcase our area's golf-related activities. From our lush green golf courses (where no membership is required to play) to attractions that combine technology, golf, and adult beverage, to family-friendly putt-putt courses with crazy obstacles, our area has it all!

So whether the father figure in your life is a golf enthusiast, or just looking for something new to do, there is bound to be something that anyone can enjoy.
