In golf there is a unique emphasis on the gentle behavioral qualities of self-discipline, culture and etiquette in order

In a broader sense, golf is also a sport that offers
far reaching educational and cultural benefits. As anyone
who has tried the game can attest, golf offers a challenging
and never-ending learning experience requiring both discipline
and patience. Almost uniquely in the world of sport, golf
is an introspective challenge - - - while it can be played
competitively against others, its primary goal is self improvement.
Thus golf can offer the “thrill of victory,”
even if on only one shot during a round, to anyone regardless
of physical capabilities.
The social and cultural lessons of golf begin in an aura
of peace with nature itself, in the fresh open air, and
in a quiet, relaxing, tension-free atmosphere. The lessons
employ the principals of ethics and integrity, wherein the
rules of golf are entrusted to the player. As Shakespeare
“To thine own self be true, and it must follow as night and day, thou
cannot then be false to any man.”
Important, too, are the courtesies of the game: giving
consideration to fellow players, emphasizing respect and
enhancing the opportunity for enjoyment.
Wadsworth Golf Charities Foundation is dedicated to improving communities through the embodiment of the moral, ethical
and cultural codes of the game of golf.
