Golf is an individual game, but it is not a loner’s game. From the outset, the golfer has a competitor to play with and against. In the greater sense, though, golf is in good measure a social experience, especially at a golf club, where players form a community amongst themselves.
With shared interests and a unified set of values, a golfing community can generate a sense of belonging. This experience of being part of a community ultimately drives greater enjoyment of the game.
