AN Aus­tralian Sports Com­mis­sion re­port has re­vealed that golf is Vic­to­ria’s sixth most pop­u­lar par­tic­i­pa­tion sport, at­tract­ing more than 40,000 new play­ers be­tween 2009 and 2010 into the sport in that state.

Tak­ing from the sports com­mis­sion re­port, the Her­ald Sun wrote that 319,000 Vic­to­ri­ans, or 7.3% of the state’s pop­u­la­tion, played golf in 2010, up from 278,000 the pre­vi­ous year.

Walk­ing is still the high­est par­tic­i­pa­tion sport with 1.6 mil­lion peo­ple tak­ing part last year while aer­o­bics/fit­ness is the big­gest grow­ing cat­e­gory.
