    I signed up for the golf and bowling course at my High School. Wanted a easy gym class to finish out my Senior year. Wasn't really looking forward to golf as much as bowling, but we went out and drove a bit and I have to admit that it was fun. And I was one of those guys who always bashed golf and never got how people enjoyed it. I thought it was a "Sport" for old white guys...><

    Basically saying that if you get a chance, you should at least go and play on the driving range.

    Anyone else feel the same?

    I love to golf...but those guys who just bring a driver to the driving range and smash balls as hard as they can without knowing how to swing a club properly really make me laugh. They just look like idiots to experienced golfers XD the real fun for me is playing on a course because that requires a lot of skill to make good approach shots and putts. The initial drive in my opinion is the easiest part.

    o and i'm moving this to the sports section

    Me and my firend suck at golf/mini golf, but we still play just for the fun of it. Yeah sure we don't follow many rules but it can still be fun.

    I try and get insome golf every now and then, but I don't have much in the way of experience, or even as much as the opportunity to go out and play, so I'm horribly inconsistent with my shots. My 260 yard drive can compensate for that pretty nicely, though. So far, My chipping and pitching is actually rather good, but my long game is pure garbage in comparison, and my putting is only so-so.

    Those who think golf requires excessive amounts of patience have never tried speed golf. 18 holes in an hour or two? Talk about a workout!

    Golf is indeed something fun to do. People think "Oh, you just stand their with an iron smacking a ball" but it's more than that. The more challenges there are, the funner it gets. I just wish I could go out and have a game of it :sad

    Eh... it depends on whether you know what you're doing and the people you're playing with. If I'm hitting well then it's fun, but then again I've never felt so frustrated than when I'm not hitting right, and all I want to do is yell and chuck that driver into the pond.

    I dont know about that... dont get me wrong i think both are fun... i just never played any serious golf, but was on the track team. Can you really name a sport that is enjoyed by many people and cannot be fun to play.

    I cant afford to golf now although there are some greens in the area, id like to try it sometime.

    I've had mini golf lessons but not with the real hard golf balls. We used the proper gold club though. I think golf is particularly fun, even though I'm not too great myself It's still something good to do.

    To me, golf is fun.

    Miniature golf is REALLY Fun.

    I took so many lessons and sessions for golf and you only improve when you keep at it everyday, but I just play when I have the time :laugh .. But yeeah when you hit it right it's a very fun sport.

    Golf is fun if u know how to play. When u are startin, and u hardly ever send the ball where u want to it gets really frustratin... Once u have achived a minimum level and u start improving, it gets really interestin!

    I really enjoy it. Unfortunately though, I shoot on the front 9 what most shoot in 18 holes. I'm pretty good with my irons, it's my T-box shot that sucks; I can't hit my driver well for shit. I've had people tell me I'm swinging it too hard, and causing the shaft to bow (It's a graphite shaft), and that I should ease it a bit and let the club do the work. That didn't work, so I thought maybe it's the driver. But I'm pretty sure it has to do with my grip/stance, something must be off. But I'm kinda iffy on this too, if my stance or grip was off, then my irons should be off too. O' well, I guess it's one of those practice, practice, practice, things.

    I'm terrible with aiming. All I do is try to hit the ball and it moves about an inch or so. >__< It's mainly fun when you actually hit the ball =)

    Golf can be annoying. It?s a bit like snooker, no matter how good you get if you have a bad day it really is BAD.
