  • Breaking barriers to playing golf

    By Darren deMaille

    For many reasons, people are intimidated to take up the game of golf. I relate it to myself as if I were to take a dance class, which is completely out of my element. I know nothing about dance. Putting myself on showcase on a dance floor in front of other people is not something that would be comfortable for me to do.

    For this reason I understand why people are intimidated to play golf or take a lesson. We have to get out of our comfort zone sometimes and put ourselves out there to experience different things and bring more enjoyment to life.
