COMMENT: Why Australian golfers should see themselves as lucky

Watching The Open Championship is always a wonderful reminder of just how good we have it in Australia when it comes to playing golf.

The Australian golf landscape is a unique one that flies in the face of the perception that golf is a rich man’s sport which is largely inaccessible to the masses. In comparison, any Australian that has tried to play golf in a foreign country may have found it an arduous task; just to getting a tee time on a decent golf course can be difficult and if achieved it will often leave you well out-of-pocket.

It’s part of my argument in my latest article for GolfLink summarising just how good we’ve got it down here:

But we’re told, particularly by those around the home of golf, that the game in its purest form is a battle against the golf course and the elements. Well, they would wouldn’t they? Scotland tends to have wee more elements than other places in the world.

I wonder what the mantra would have been if golf had originated in Queensland.
