1.Interpersonal skills. Showing respect to yourself, others and your surroundings.

  1. Self-management skills.Keeping a positive attitude to monitor and better evaluate oneself.   
  2. Goal setting skills.Improve academic performance by setting goals
  3. Etiquette. In most cases, golf is played without the presence of judges; players themselves evaluate their actions, and they themselves impose penalties and apply the rules. Students should play golf because it is based on values that are lacking in our society. In golf, the emphasis is on etiquette.
  4. Good physical form in all ages. Young people leading non-active lifestyles start to suffer from obesity, but golf is a sport that makes them move. While playing golf, they walk across the course on foot with a bag their shoulder. A person weighing 70 kg burns 350 calories per round. When asked what he likes best about golf, one young golfer answered: “This is good for me. I walk more and watch less TV.”
  5. Preparing for future professional life. Golf is a type of sport that helps prepare students for a business career and, in general, for any professional activity. Playing golf, young people learn the basics of the rules of behavior in society, which opens the door for them, both in business and in other areas of activity.
  6. A variety of possibilities. You can play golf alone or with partners, while partners can be of different skill levels. Golf is a game that you can play all your life, regardless of age, gender, race, physical development and skill level.
  7. Communication with friends. Golf is a social game. As a rule, students begin to practice golf, following the example of their fellows or close people.
  8. Play in a safe environment. A golf course is a safe place where young people learn and communicate in the utmost safety.
  9. Emotion control. Successes and failures in the game are very akin to the ups and downs in real life. Playing three, nine or 18 holes, a young person learns to assess difficulties and to navigate in the current circumstances. The result of such an analysis can be good, so-so and bad hits.
  10. Responsibility. In golf there is no guarantee that a good result will be achieved or even competitions will be won. During a round, young people learn personal responsibility for preparing and completing a task. The ball does not always land where you would like, but your partners cannot be blamed for this.
  11. Great pastime outside the walls of the usual environment. Students should play this sport because it is a great opportunity to spend several hours outdoors. Playing golf, students can get acquainted with a variety of flora and fauna surrounding them.
  12. Establishing lasting friendships.You never know who you will meet on the golf course. Communication with partners during the round helps young people develop interpersonal skills.
