Sure chasing a little white ball which is less than two inches wide, across 150 plus acres of land is fun. Figuring out how to hit that little white ball straight is fun too. But the social aspects of golf are wonderful. The friends and relationships one can build while playing this game and chasing that little white ball can last a lifetime.
Join A Golf League
Other than just meeting people on the course and on the practice range, a great way to enjoy the game and make new friends is by joining a golf league. Nearly every public course has some sort of a league. There are men's, women's and coed leagues everywhere.
Find a course you like and inquire about leagues or associations. Most put on weekly tournaments during the on-season of the course, and typically have social events and activities which add to the fun.
In addition to meeting new people, the experience of weekly or regular tournaments and competition can be great for improving your game, your scores and your enjoyment.
