Golf is one of the most popular sports in the world and it can be played starting from very young ages. At first glance it may seem like a simple sport, but the multitude of rules, its complexity and the financial resources a player needs to have determine a precise selection of the public who can practice it.
It is a safe game which requires a lot of concentration and determination, while focusing mostly on the respect between the players. Among the most famous golfers we can remember Tiger Woods who has made an extraordinary career in this sport.
In Romania, this sport has started to develop since a few years ago, but even so, we are the ones that own the largest golf course in Europe. So, if you want to practice this complex sport, we suggest you some golf courses where you could set your skills as a golf player.
