These magazines and movies are only a small portion of how golf has helped changed society. Golf provided a helping hand in bringing the American nation closer together as equals. Blacks and Whites of all ages and gender have been given the chance to play along side each other in a safe environment. Sports sometimes provide a place for equality. Golf is a great example of this equality. Stossel says "golf is beginning to look more like America: diverse, multicultural, and largely middle class" (2). But, will Americans take advantage of the
“Given the year we just experienced in golf, it would be phenomenal if we see anything in 2001 that will even remotely compare. We witnessed an incredible season by the game’s most dominant player-in this era or any other. We saw how fans and players alike could respect the game in an international competition. And, we have seen the game’s visibility skyrocket” (Strange 20).
Along with lacrosse, golf is another country club sport that is dominated by whites. “The United States itself, of course, is a white settler state on territory” (mills 28). Like most people know, whites are the majority in the United States. The majority of the golf population is white. Every part of golf costs money. Practicing on the driving range, playing eighteen holes, buying golf clubs, renting a golf cart, even buying extra balls when you loose some. Golf is a country club sport that requires copious amounts of money. Other privileges mills state include “ And the purpose of this state, by contrast with the neutral a state of classic contractions, is, inter alia, specifically to maintain and reproduce the racial order securing the privileges and advantages of the full white criticize.” (Mills 14). Again, Mills talks about the advantages that white people
Imagine the sun bursting through the trees for the first time of the new day, the smell of freshly cut grass still potent to your nose as you tee the ball up for a round of golf in the cool mist of a spring morning. "That is what brings you back every time, the smell of the air, the coolness of the whether and the beautiful surroundings that make every shot enjoyable." (Suess, PI) This is the game of golf in its finest and most exquisite time to many people and many people it has touched in its long history. Golf is a lifestyle and not just games to people that are avid in playing.

Golf. A sport that was dull and mundane twenty years ago, evolved when Tiger Woods came to the scene. I started golfing during high school and loved it for the single fact, Tiger Woods played it. Growing up I pictured golf as that once boring sport played by old white men lacking a fan base. Just like myself, many people hated the idea of watching golf, so the sport needed a change. Tour earnings were low, scoring was average, and young people did not want to pick up the sport. Tiger Woods came on the tour in 1997 and astronomically changed the view of golf. The “Tiger Effect” on golf is real and more people have been trying to work harder to get to that “Tiger” bench mark. He single handily brought golf to the limelight and made it interesting to watch this godly like figure tear up the greens while becoming an idol to young golfers around the world.
The older generation, who has played a large role in the game of golf, has begun to surpass the age of playing 18 holes on a full length course. Baby boomers are taking a step back and are seeking other opportunities to keep them active. Various clubs across the country are adapting to this by providing recreational substitutes to those who are reducing their golf activity to greatly boost the chances of having all of them remain active, dues paying members.
When people here the word ‘golf’ they often correlate it with a misleading sense of boring, elderly men and women who have nothing better to do. Believe it or not, there is a broader reason why so many retirees indulge in the golf lifestyle. Yes, golf is a lifestyle, not just a sport. Many people, most of whom know absolutely nothing about the sport, do not realize that playing golf regularly can add five years to their life span and also have many other well-being-related benefits (“Health” par. 5). Golf is a great therapeutic activity because it teaches good etiquette, it enriches the mind, and it provides for a healthy lifestyle.
Several decades ago, golf was considered to be the game for the Royals. The people belonging to the elite society played gold during their leisure time. It required a widely spread area where people lavishly played along with other people and made the most out of their time.

There are professional institutes imparting training to adults and accordingly making it a sport that is chosen for international tournaments played between countries.

To me, a very important question is, “How traditional can we keep the game of golf?” The game is evolving at every aspect. They are evolving the golf ball and making it better by making it fly longer in the air and landing softer on the greens. Along with the ball, the clubs are being made better and better making the ball go farther sometimes by even 50 yards. Each year, the irons are being made with better grooves which make the ball come off the club better and farther. While golf equipment is changing, the rules of golf are not. The rules of golf have been here since it’s existence. Another question that concerns me is, “Why can the equipment change in golf, but not the rules?” Throughout the years golf has changed in the aspect of equipment but not the rules.
New golfers increased from 1.5 million to 3 million between 1988 and 1998, but most of them quit due to increased cost of playing which went up by nearly 50%, unavailability of courses and time involved in playing. The global premium equipment market declined post 1998 due to various reasons like decreased demand, Asian economic turmoil and saturation of product in the market place.
