Question by J: How much of your enjoyment of golf is game versus environment?
With fishing for instance, the fun is being on the lake or sea, drinking a beer, relaxing. Catching the actual fish is fun but that’s not the only source of gratification. What’s the balance in golf?
Answer by bustersmycat-RIP
personally, I get a lot of pleasure from the relaxing atmosphere, the tranquility and greenery, but it is not the dominant factor. it is definitely an important factor though. And I fish for much the same line of thinking, I enjoy fishing, getting that occasional catch (just like making that occasional great shot in golf), but it is the atmosphere that makes the entire experience and not just the activity.
But I am not a serious golfer, I am a bogie golfer that shoots in the 80s or 90s for the most part. Serious golfers (several in my family) are really driven by the golf and not the relaxation it allows.
