A simpler life…with golf

An article in Sunday’s New York Times was forwarded to me by several people given that at one stage it stated;

“Thomas DeLeire, an associate professor of public affairs, population, health and economics at the University of Wisconsin in Madison, recently published research examining nine major categories of consumption. He discovered that the only category to be positively related to happiness was leisure: vacations, entertainment, sports and equipment like golf clubs and fishing poles.”

As we all know, golf is a unique sport in that it also delivers an unusually high level of camaraderie for the participants. I am sure we are not the only ones in the travel industry who hope that the New York Times  is correct!
