When you embark on a cricket tour to another country, or even just to another town, it can be lots of fun to mix up your trip and have a game of golf with your mates along the way. Playing golf on a cricket tour can be a real laugh; you are already in a relaxed mood, your friends are by your side and you probably have lots of free time available to you.
Golfers are very lucky actually, their favourite game is so big all around the world that finding a course to play on is never that hard to do, and there is always somewhere where you can get your fix. There will be some days on your cricket tour where there is no cricket to watch and no traveling to be done. What could be more perfect than heading to the golf course and taking in a round or two. You may be far away from home and not have your golf gear with you, but not to worry, where there is a will there is a way. Most golf clubs have a Golfshop where you can buy or even just hire all of the gear that you need to get out on the course.
You may not be able to play with that special personal Putter that you know and love, but you will be able to hire all of the different types and sizes of clubs that you need for a game. In most golfshops you can also pick up the golf balls and golf bags that your tour party will need before you all get out on that fairway. And for those amongst your group that are adverse to a bit of walking, there is normally the option to hire a golf buggy and play the course in style.
Golf is the kind of sport that other sports people love to play. It is a very common sight to see world class footballers and cricketers out on the fairways having a bash. Whether they are any good or not is another question, but golf is a very popular sport to play in all different kinds of sporting circles. This is probably because it is quite a relaxing game, and one that you can play with a group of friends and turn into a fun social outing.
Golf really is a unique sport, it can either be played as a very serious business or approached like a social gathering between friends. A sense of comradery will no doubt develop between you and the touring companions on your cricket tour, and you may be good friends with some of these people for the rest of your life. It is funny, but sometimes the things you remember most from your cricket tour will not be the cricket matches themselves but the free days that you have off. These extra days are yours to fill up however you want, and many people choose to fit in a round of golf.
