Theme: Self

I think this photo turned out really funny distorted. Yep, it’s me holding a golf club, Mr Lifecruiser’s new driver, but no no, I’ve not played with it – not THAT one ;-)

Read more in my earlier post Golf pleasures in and out, if you haven’t already!

Facts about Swedish Golf:

Number of golf courses in July 2007 in Sweden were a total of 499. Of them were 282 golf courses 18 holes courses, the rest were up to 36 holes. In our capital Stockholm there were 63 golf courses up to that month.

Sweden has 9,196,227 inhabitants and is to the surface at similar size as California, just to give you an idea of it. There was, in July 2007, counted 587 013 members in the Swedish Golf Association.

How ever, the number of members have decreased from 2004 and even before that a change could be noticed: not so big increase any more as earlier. Of course, it has to stop somewhere, but now members really are dropping off.

There can be several reasons for that. One is the bad weather the past years, another is that people have a more tough situation now. It has been expensive to buy into a golf club and golf is a time consuming sport.

Many have a very tough and demanding situation at their jobs today. Many has lost their jobs and have problems getting a new one.

Maybe they’re not allowed to play golf as a way to socialize with expected customers any longer either, as the case very often were during some years. The company supported them to take their golf licenses.

So, less money and time for golfing in the over stressed Swedish society today, which is a pity, because stress is bad to your health. Golf is without doubt a really good exercise to keep you in shape.

    So what’s your favourite club then: Wood or Iron? :lol:

    I try the best I can to hold up Swedish Golf as both me and Diane has been a member since 05′, but the again: we’re Norwegians.

    Your right: Nothing is more relaxing and health caring as golf. As you can see from the flag on my signature: you know where we are right now and can probably guess what we will do tomorrow – outdoors :lol:

    Original choice for the theme! We have not so many golf course here. Grass needs water and water is rare by us! golf is very expensive and this is not a popular sport here. But I’m sure it must be a nice practice to forget the stress! My secret against the stress: blogging!!! and LOVE!

    Melli said:

    Hmmmm… I really do wonder now if the situation is the same here in the U.S. … it has always been common practice for businessmen to “do business” on the golf course. But with the economy the way it is right now, EVERYbody is cutting back on frivolity… I wonder if Big Business America has quit paying for “Business Golf”. I’ll have to see what I can find out. And I wonder if the 3 martini lunches will be next! Mmm mmm mmm…. how will we woo clients away from our competitors? Maybe we’ll actually have to offer a BETTER product!!!

    By the way — that’s a very cool shot of you!

    That is a great photo cruiser. I’m not a golfer but one od my readers is an avid golfer. It is a pretty expensive endeavor for most though. I ‘ll have to email him this link – he might want to try a golf club photo.

    Hi there this is a very interesting article about Nordic golf. I have been a very keen golfer since my very early years now and I haven’t yet had the pleasure of playing golf in Europe. What is it like in your part of the world at this time of the year? Surely it cant be much better for golf than in the UK? Check out my simple golf swing review for a similar blog on what challenges you can meet at this time of year.

    Angel said:

    Great photo and very interesting your information about Swedish Golf.

    GolfMan said:

    Nice photo, and interesting read. As an avid US golfer, I’m sorry to hear of the decline in Sweden, and I’m curious if that trend has continued or not. I would love the opportunity to play in your beautiful country someday.
