We all love the season of giving. And nothing beats that feeling of giving the perfect gift to your loved one - the “gift of the season!”. But where does one find this “perfect gift”?
That question looms over each and every Christmas shopper as they rush into malls, line-up outside random shops and hope for that rare find. But as Dr. Seuss’s The Grinch taught us long ago, “Maybe Christmas...doesn’t come from a store. Maybe Christmas means a little bit more…”.
This past year has come with many unexpected twists and turns, causing all of us to pivot our plans, adapt to the new culture of health and safety outside of our doors and pick up a new hobby (or two!).
Did you know that the sport of golf experienced a massive rise in popularity in the year 2020? An estimated 15,000 Canadians played more than 100 rounds of golf!
This initial surge in fame was due to the fact that the majority of sports during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic were closed. In fact, some leagues are still awaiting their resurgence! Golf quickly became one of very few activities that could be played safely.
But the interesting thing to note is that golf held its ground in 2021 as well! There are seemingly more people golfing now than ever before!
Needless to say, if you’re contemplating what to get someone for Christmas - something trendy and unique - a golfing membership might just be the true “gift of the season”!
