Here is what others have to say:

I am grateful for how golf continues to teach me things about myself and others! It is a gentlemen’s game and by keeping that philosophy, it has helped shape some of the positive aspects of my life! – Jim, The Grateful Golfer

With regard to the game of golf, I feel blessed to have achieved a level of skill that allows me to enjoy the many intricacies and satisfactions the game has to offer. While my skills may slowly deteriorate over time, the game will provide the opportunity to recreate and socialize for the rest of my life. Many folks from all walks of life do not have that opportunity, and often players of other sports have to abandon their activity after youth or mid-life because they are physically unable to perform. Not with golf. For that I am eternally grateful.Brian from All About Golf

I am a grateful golfer because it provides a vehicle to be challenged, grow, build confidence and be humbled all at the same time. The ability to share the game and play it with other like-minded people of all skill levels makes it something special. – Josh from Golf is Mental

I am a grateful golfer because it allows me to spend quality time with people (friends and family) in what is usually a beautiful setting – the sky is blue, the grass is green and the sun is shining. – Linley from Linley’s Golf Blog

I’m a grateful golfer because playing this game gives me the chance to engage and influence the lives of other people positively. While playing with my family allows me to spend much needed time with those I love, playing with younger kids either casually or in a lesson setting gives me the chance to make an impression that just might lead them to a lifetime of golfing enjoyment. I will always be grateful to step out on that first tee and share this passion with those who share the same appreciation for this game as I do.  – Sully from The Golf Academy

Why I’m grateful for golf: Grateful isn’t really the right word, but golf continually reminds me that it isn’t fair, and life isn’t fair. Golf is golf and life is life. You wake up and face the day where the washer is leaking and you have a flat tire. You hit a great drive and it trickles into a divot in the rough. It’s how you deal with adversity in both that defines you as a person. I’m still working on that part! – Brad K Chambers from ShootingYourAge.com
