One of the great things about sport in general is that it is good for development. Most adults who are practicing sport regularly over weekends for recreational purposes can tell you what that feels like and what it means to them. On the developmental front, sport is extremely good for the youth. It remains a matter of concern that today, not enough youngsters are playing sport today. They are missing out on fresh air and physical and mental development.
Most of the youth that are losing out today are those you could term as being underprivileged. They are challenged daily with crimes and poverty in run down areas or what we would call ‘the projects’. There is generally not enough safe room or space for the poor kids to play their games, even if they wished to. If you have concerns over this matter, and are already serving time trying to help kids out, why don’t you try out something new for a change.
How about this then? How about introducing underprivileged kids to the ancient and prestigious game of golf. Who knows, among these kids could be another Arnold Palmer or Tiger Woods in the making. It is all about having the opportunity. And today, the sport of kings is no longer out of reach, not for you or those poor kids. It is no longer as costly as it was before. Today, you can afford to stock up on golf shirts, second hand clubs and discount golf shoes, not just for yourself, but for those poor kids too.
And arranging weekend excursions at local golf clubs is no longer out of bounds. You can be sure that members would only be too happy to see more folks take an interest in this fine sport.
