True, Non golfers will think hitting a ball 100s of yards to try get it into a hole is stupid but they are entitled to their views . Let these people be, we in general might think lots of things others do are equally dumb. When I was a kid , I was constantly forced to go try golf out at the driving range, due to its ah pek and boring image I refused and picked up tennis instead. How i so very regret this move now because I absolutely love golf now.. hahaha

On a separate note, i do think that golf courses are kinda waste of space, imagine the vast potential that piece of land could other wise do. Of course i hope it does not happen for we shall all run of off interesting courses to [play and always be stuck playing the same few courses.

30+??

LOL maybe i am surrounded by bosses and colleague that play golf so i 'converted' faster. I remember when i was 30ish, i still think golf is for older men and that i will pickup golf when i am older.

BTW the land at MBGC was nothing before the golf course....look at it now. The actual Golf course may not be the best use of land but it can really make the surrounding areas bloom.

er....... i used to think that golf is stupid game for old men. It was 15years ago when my ex-boss tried his best to get me to pick it up to no avail. But when I finally did pick it up, I was so darn hook to the game till today and its already 10 years into the journey. I even wanted to turn pro which eventually I did - PROblem golfer.

Just give your colleague a hug. Sounds like he/she needs one.

My views...

Case#1 In my early 30s i was persuaded to join friend to play golf. I decline bcos that time I had the same tot... golf is for the nuts!!! playing under hot sun and rain, wake up early just to waste sleep and time on the course. I used to play badminton, and couple of years b4 turn 50 I picked up golf, hush!!! the day I practise golf, I 'hang' my badminton rackets since. The satisfactions and the motivation surpases in all interests.

case#2.. My friend had no interest in sport except for MJ. we used to mj till late night. It really shocked me when we had the MJ session till 2 am.. and supposed to go JB for golf at 6 am. Knowing my friend for many years, I said to myself, he will not turn up. To my surprise he reach woodland just b4 6am. Even his wife for many years were shocked too!!!!


To summarize,, we are all human, most of us who play golf experiences similar syndrome..many mores cases of the unbelievable...only my views ...

aiyah.. everybody entitled to own views..

like fishing for example, people who go fishing put up with sea sickness, long hours, no toilet.. smelly smelly
golf is still not as difficult condition as fishing, or scuba diving, or mountain climbing.
we all do what we like, enjoy what we like. if we don't enjoy it, then time to find something else to enjoy.. there are many other things to do after all.

There are people in the world who will never see eye to eye with you. Accept that. Rather than getting angry with them, hug them instead. They could use some love.

OR, just pray:

God,
Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I cannot accept,
And the wisdom to hide the bodies of those people
I had to kill today because they pissed me off.
And also, help me to be careful of the toes I step on today
As they may be connected to the ass that I have to kiss tomorrow.
Help me to always give 100% at work... 12% on Monday, 23% on Tuesday,
40% on Wenesday, 20% on Thursday, and 5% on Friday.
And help me to remember...
When I'm having a really bad day,
And it seems that people are trying to piss me off,
That it takes 42 muscles to frown
And only 4 to extend my middle finger and tell them to bite me.

'Golf is a waste of space and not environmentally friendly. '
Reply already but golf is going environmentally friendly

' Golf is for the barbaric cos it originally comes from the barbaric land - Ireland.' - i seriously dont know.
Hahaha.. Dun assume just cos a lot of old pix seems to indicate so.but there is a sign in China that say golf originate from China. Well this is everybody guess..

'Golf doesnt make u exercise cos u just stand there and hit the ball and says 'wow! see how far my ball went...''
Think he need orientation to golf. maybe a coutesy round. The only time you sit and hit ball is at driving range. Shooting a rifle or Archery also recognise as sport in Olympic. Ask him hold a swing a golf club 100 times or may his hHCP is high, swing 150 times, see perspire or not

'look at today's golfer... highly pampering themselves with the buggy. What exercise do u call this. Waste money only.' Quite truth, wait till the Marshall say Buggy on track and behind flightchasing you....

I 2nd the motion.

Pointless in arguing with someone who thinks"negatively" about something he/she doesn't understand.

Just enjoy the game of Golf :-)
