Golf in the Extreme – Sounds a bit Strange…..

When you think of golf and the word extreme coming together in the same sentence you might be wondering how that will all fit together. Generally, golf is considered an old mans game and there is nothing extreme involved. Golf today is getting a little bit more adventurous then in times gone past and you might be surprised to see the skill and tricks some players are capable of as well as the extreme golf courses that are being built around the world. Sites like can show off some of the equipment that you will need in order to lift your game through serious practice.

In the world of golf course design many of the worlds leading designers are working hard to come up with new ideas and creations to excite players and get them to make the trip for 18 holes. The legends golf course in South Africa is a great example of this – the video below shows one of the most amazing holes in golf the world has ever seen.

One of the reasons I love the game of golf is because I recognize the amount of skill required to play a solid game as well as managing to maintain it. Golf is not like riding a bike in that it takes constant dedication and effort to ensure a consistent swing and handicap. If you find yourself stepping out of the game for a little while, even a few months, you will find yourself struggling to maintain the rhythm and tempo. For those who live in the North and have to deal with extreme winters there is always the option of using a home golf simulator like this to keep your swing trim and even get the chance to improve over the colder months.

Many players enjoying working on tricks these days, mainly to impress other players and some of the worlds best golfers have extreme skills that will blow you away!
