Golf is a great activity to take up – particularly if you’re staying with us here at Watermark Beach Resort! The Osoyoos and South Okanagan region is home to five excellent golf courses and a host of other golf facilities too! As Canada’s only desert region with plenty of sun and few rainy days, the region is a great place to try your hand at golf, whether you’re a seasoned pro or just hitting the links for the first time.
If you aren’t a golfer, you may think of the sport as a game that is played by older men and executives who want to secure a business deal, but this couldn’t be further from the truth! Golf is a great sport that is perfect for people of all fitness levels and ages. Just check out some of the great reasons why you should start golfing this year!
- It’s An Age-Old Tradition
Golf is an old sport… Like, really old. No one really knows when the first form of the game began, but golf as we know it today originated in Scotland in the 15th century. Basically, golf isn’t going anywhere, so you may as well give it a try!
- The Scenery
Golf courses are spectacular places to spend morning or afternoon! If you appreciate beautiful parks, you will appreciate a beautiful golf course. Some courses are even positioned to maximize beautiful views that are both relaxing and exhilarating all at the same time.
- Golf Is Like Competitive Walking
Who doesn’t like going for a nice walk in a pretty park? Add in a bit of competition and you have golf! For many amatuer golfers, the fresh air, light exercise, and fun are the real draw behind the game.
- The Conversation
There’s something about being on the golf course that makes you want to leave your phone in your pocket. This means that you have a great opportunity to chat with your golf partners and develop a stimulating conversation that can help you form a lasting bond with new friends, business partners, and your significant others
- It’s the Hobby of a Lifetime
Golf is one of the few sports that can be played from childhood through to retirement and old age. While you may be better at some points in your life than others, it really is a sport that you can enjoy throughout your life.
