As you know I am not a very sporty person and because of my various injuries there are not many sports I can actually do. Couple of days ago Anna, her brother, his fiancé and I went to a golf club and we've tried to play golf. Golf is one of the most popular sports in the UK. They say it is quite easy to take up and gives you the chance to have a great time outdoors. The game attracts huge numbers of people because it can be played by people of all ages, skill levels and abilities without too much difficulty. I have never played golf before and I didn't have any idea how to play or even how to hold a golf club. But you know what, we met other players, friendly people on the golf course and they explained to us the basics and have shown us the right position for hitting the ball. It this movie you can see my best swing!
The whole idea of the game, the object of the game is to put a ball in a hole by hitting it with a club in as few strokes as possible. The game takes place on the golf course. Golf courses normally have nine or eighteen holes. They are very green and the one that we went to was very beautiful. We didn't actually play a game, just learned how to hit a ball and tried to put a ball in a hole just on the potting green. It was a nice day outdoors and we didn't really feel we are doing a sport.
Your Mum has written in her letter last year that you like playing sports. I am curious to know if you would enjoy playing golf? I hope we will have an opportunity to play together one day...
Lots of love... Dad
