Is Golf A Game Or A Sport

Friday, September 28, 2018

The old debate of classifying golf as a sport or just a game is just as bad as the laurel vs yanny debate. Some hear yanny while others hear laurel. And same for golf – some believe its a sport others believe it’s just a game. People say that it comes down to the lack of rigorous physical activity that is needed to play. Others believe it’s due to the variations of the game and the ways that it can be played. For example, when you say you are playing mini golf, do you believe you are playing a sport or a game? Fun and leisure activities like this that surround golf has caused many to believe that it’s nothing more than a game and cannot be called a sport.
