When Winston Churchill said that Golf is a game whose aim is to hit a very small ball into an even smaller hole, with weapons singularly ill-designed for the purpose he probably was not way off the mark. Despite that, no matter how hard you scratch your head you would struggle to find a sport which is more addictive than the game of golf. Perhaps this is one game where over a period of four hours you would probably be witness to the entire spectrum of Human emotions that one could possibly see and no matter how good one gets at this game the game bites back before you know it. Even the best have to keep their feet firmly on the ground.

There are many who genuinely believe there could be no more boring sport than this one but give them a golf bag and a free run on a golf course for a few hours and before you know it you have a convert. It is a fascinating sport that has engulfed our imagination for the last 400 odd years, from being a small sport played in Scotland to a sport which has addicts worldwide, it’s a game that will rule our hearts for years to come. Nothing describes the addiction for the game better than the following anecdote-:
At his wedding the groom turned up at the altar with his golf bag in tow. When the bride asked him why the hell was his golfing equipment there, he quipped “this isn’t going to take all day is it.”

I think you have done the game justice with what you have said. I don't believe I have ever hated this game but I do know that I love it an can't ever get enough of it. It is never the same day in and day out. I also love my father for introducing me to this wonderful game.

Golf will giveth and quite easily taketh away. Ever had a bad round and yet play great on the last two holes? Just enough to bring you back with a renewed sense of confidence that your past "golf problems" are finally fixed.

But it truly is a game for life. Kudos to old Tom Morris.

Golf poses many challenges and that's what makes it great. The challenges are difficult but surmountable, making triumph on the golf course one of the most rewarding experiences ever!

Golf is one the most expensive and most technical games of the world. There should be no problem giving it the crown of the greatest game ever but we should also reconsider other games.

I agree with briangarg...but it also depends on how you define a game. Is baseball a game? Football? If so, it's impossible to argue which one is "better".
