The traditional family picture is up for renewal. In largecities, half the population lives in a single household configuration. Single parent household are making up a significant portion of society and the traditional family is not the only model to go by.
But families have not disappeared, it is their dynamics that have changed. It becomes increasingly clear that the focus should be on women, who are the real head of the family, responsible for the vast majority of all family expenditures, ranging from daily groceries to major purchases. Female consumers control the private budget and are the gatekeepers to focus on.
There’s no better sport for bringing people together and, with its winning combination of exercise, sporting skill and social interaction, golf is the perfect tonic for good health and happiness.
Golf is a great game whatever your age, background or ability. Just about anyone, regardless of ability level, can grab a set of golf clubs, head outside, and in no time be hitting golf balls where no one will ever find them again.
It offers some important feel-good factors, such as an active social life and regular physical activity of the best kind – what we call ‘green exercise’ outside in nature. And, with plenty of time for conversation, golf is the perfect way to make new friends, especially if you have recently moved into a new area or have had a life style change. Wherever there’s a golf course, a host of rewarding new friendships awaits you. Friendships that are likely to flourish, thanks to the convivial atmosphere of the game itself and the ready-made social life at the clubhouse.
