Look­ing to take up a new hobby?

Rutherglen Reformer - - Golfing In Lanarkshire -

If you are think­ing about tak­ing up a new sport­ing hobby, now is the time of year to sign up for golf.

With the Scot­tish Open at Royal Troon set for this year, the sport has never had so much cov­er­age.

And here are some rea­sons why you should think about tak­ing up golf:

Con­nec­tions:

Ev­ery an­gle of the sport is rooted in re­la­tion­ships— both per­sonal and busi­ness. And your time spent in and around the game al­lows you to make con­nec­tions and foster re­la­tion­ships through shared ex­pe­ri­ences that you wouldn’t oth­er­wise make.

The Great Out­doors

In this hi-tech gen­er­a­tion of be­ing chained to our mo­bile devices who couldn’t use a lit­tle more time out­side in the fresh air?

Calo­rie Burn

You’ll burn ap­prox­i­mately 2000 calo­ries dur­ing an 18-hole round (while walk­ing and car­ry­ing your clubs).

A new im­age

For­get about the stodgy, starchy, boxy and, yes, tacky golf shirts of days gone by. Cute, fash­ion-for­ward, sexy, pro­fes­sional, sporty; what­ever look you’re go­ing for on the course, the fash­ion world is your oys­ter in golf. Oh, and the shoes.

Per­fect date

Golf is such a spe­cial sport to share with a spouse or part­ner. You’ll leave the world be­hind and be to­gether, undis­rupted in a beau­ti­ful set­ting where noth­ing else mat­ters but the two of you. Fun and close­ness are sure to re­sult.

Des­ti­na­tions ga­lore

Around the cor­ner or even the globe, golf travel can take you to stun­ning lo­ca­tions all over the world.

That One Shot

There’s no way to do jus­tice to de­scrib­ing the feel­ing of pure ex­hil­a­ra­tion you’ll ex­pe­ri­ence the first time you con­nect your golf club with that lit­tle white ball.

There’s re­ally noth­ing like it! You can do it.

Go on, swing into ac­tion!

Ben­e­fits ga­lore

Tak­ing up golf has a lot of health ben­e­fits for you
