Golf is one of the most popular sports in the world and it is played now in over 100 countries. In recent years the sport has seen a large growth in popularity, similar to the growth during the 1960’s and 1990’s. In the developed areas of Canada, Australia, USA and South Africa golf has been popular for decades and continues to grow. In Asia, golf has been admired in Japan for many years, but it is now becoming more and more popular in countries such as Vietnam, South Korea and China. In Europe, although already widely played in many countries, there has been active growth in the popularity of golf in Croatia, France, Germany, Latvia, the Czech Republic and Russia.

Increase in Popularity

With golf recently being included in the Olympics, more people have become aware of the sport and are therefore playing it. The International Golf Federation is supporting development efforts in 118 countries to support the sport. The popularity of golf in a single country is judged on a number of points such as number of golfers including men, women and children, and the number of golf courses.

International Golf Courses

There hundreds of thousands of golf courses all around the world, some more unique than others. Some avid players of the sport will travel to different countries to try out renowned courses. There is also the option of using the golf driving range Surrey where you can try out a number of famous golf courses virtually from the comfort of one venue.

Options After School in Kent

No Comments

In Britain it is legal to finish school at 16, although it is recommended that you stay in training or education to prepare for the future. After school is over and you have got your GCSE results, it is time to decide which path to take that will lead you to the future you are hoping for. In Kent, there are a number of choices including:

  • Full Time Education

A popular option is to stay on at school full time at a sixth form or at a college to gain qualifications or A-Levels for university. Most secondary schools in Kent have sixth forms which are often smaller than colleges and offer more structured teaching and student support. Colleges on the other hand are usually bigger and more informal, as students are expected to be able to handle their own time and work, and be independent. Sixth forms generally have a range of A-Level subjects but colleges will certainly have more courses available such as accountants Kent, IT, teaching, building and much more.

  • Apprenticeships

An apprenticeship is a great way to learn, train, get experience, and earn all at the same time as getting your qualification. Colleges or employers in Kent will offer apprenticeships where you will work in a real job whilst training and earning a salary at the same time until you are qualified.

  • Work Experience and Volunteering

Work experience and volunteering is usually unpaid but provides knowledge and training that can be useful in the future.
