The lawyers at our office play golf for recreational purposes and promote golf for recreational purposes, as a game of fair play.
“Golf is a sport that anyone can play, although one has to be able-bodied and fairly fit (in the course of one round of golf the average golfer, when carrying their golf bag on their own, can burn up to 2500 kcal). Even so, it can be played both by a seventy-year-old and by a ten-year-old. The walk across all of the holes on the course usually takes between 4 and 6 hours, during which time a player is constantly in the fresh air and undergoes moderate physical exertion, mainly in the form of a walk of between 6 and 8 kilometres with a golf bag that weighs a dozen or more kilogrammes" (although fortunately wheeled golf bags are common).
"Golf is often perceived to be an elite sport played solely by wealthy snobs. In countries in which the sport is highly popular, it is in fact quite accessible to almost anyone who truly wishes to play it.” (Wikipedia)
