Updated on April 10, 2015

A real golfer knows that golf is a mental game. For me, the novice, it is still a physical game and I remain a golfer wanta be. While nothing beats being out on the golf course, I do love great golfers, their stories and their quotes. The quotes of wisdom, I could read all day long. Let me share with you my favorite female golfer and a few of my favorite golf quotes.

Golf is deceptively simple and endlessly complicated; it satisfies the soul and frustrates the intellect. It is at the same time rewarding and maddening - and it is without a doubt the greatest game mankind has ever invented.”

Arnold Palmer quotes (American Golfer. b.1929)


I regard golf as an expensive way of playing marbles.

GK Chesterton

Why am I using a new putter? Because the old one didn't float well.

Craig Stadler

Watch a game, it's fun. Play and it's recreation. But if you work at it, it's golf.

Bob Hope

It took me seventeen years to get 3,000 hits in baseball. I did it in one afternoon on the golf course.

Hand Arron

When you start driving your ball down the middle, you meet a different class of people.

Phil Harris

Golf has become so manicured, so perfect. The greens, the fairways. I don't like golf carts. I like walking. Some clubs won't let you in unless you have a caddy and a cart.
Robert Redford


I play golf with friends sometimes, but there are never friendly games.

Ben Hogan


I'd like to design something like a city or a museum. I want to do something hands on rather than just play golf which is the sport of the religious right. 
Brad Pitt 

A golf course is nothing but a pool room moved outdoors. 
Frank Butler 

A golf course is the epitome of all that is purely transitory in the universe; a space not to dwell in, but to get over as quickly as possible. 
Jean Giraudoux 

A great deal of unnecessarily bad golf is played in this world. 
Harry Vardon 

A kid grows up a lot faster on the golf course. Golf teaches you how to behave. 
Jack Nicklaus 

A lot of my buddies also played golf, but when it came to going to the beach or on the boat and chasing girls, they usually went that way and I went to the golf course. 
Mike Weir 

Achievements on the golf course are not what matters, decency and honesty are what matter. 
Tiger Woods 

All I do is play music and golf - which one do you want me to give up? 
Willie Nelson 

All I want to do is do my shows and play golf. 
Mickey Gilley 

As we all know... golf is a puzzle without an answer. 
Gary Player 

At one point, I had 14 pairs of golf shoes. 
Tea Leoni 

Being away for the weekends, and me being the international player that I have been for those 30 years, I've spent a lot more time flying around the world, playing different golf tournaments around the world. 
Greg Norman 

Both of us played basketball, and I played tennis and my knees are done. Now if you ask us head-to-head who wins at golf, I'm asking for a couple of strokes. 
Michael Wilbon 

I know I am getting better at golf because I am hitting fewer spectators. 
Gerald R. Ford 

One thing that golf teaches you is humility.
Robert Wagner [2]

Bobby Jones quote

Cheryl Ladd Quotes on Golf

Cheryl Ladd is an accomplished actress who you probably remember from television series Charlie's Angels (1976-1981).

Her charm and beauty have always been unquestionable.

In her golf game, she proved herself by sharing with us her personal triumphs and inspiring us in her book Token Chick.

Cheryl Ladd best a field full of NFL palyers in the longest-drive contest, winning by a single inch! No heavenly magic here, just a great golf player and female too!

Let me share with you a few insight from Cheryl Ladd, my female golf hero.

"The best way to learn how to make solid contact is by practicing your short game."

"As far as men playing golf with their wives goes, I think it's a great idea for couples to play together. Especially after you've just returned from church. That way you've gotten everything in perspective, and it'll keep you from cursing out there on Sunday afternoon." Duffy Waldorf

"So get some golf into your relationship, girl! It doesn't matter if you're with someone or looking for someone. It just works. It's a good thing. It's powerful- as powerful as love itself."

"A round of golf is a perfect second date, not a first date."

"There is no tolerating a cheater."

"If you are going to be drinking more water, take note of the most important holes on the course: the ones that have a restroom."

"Golf is such a mental game, it's scary."

"Don't be upset about your game today. That's what golf is. It's ups and downs."

"You know I've caddied for f***ing princes! But you're special, you're a friend." Jimmy Kelly to Cheryl Ladd

"Who is Jimmy Kelly? He's just the greatest caddy in the world, that's all."

" You'll hear golfers talk about getting into the slot as it it's some mystical place."

"Standing a few feet from a professional hitting a tee shot is something that every golfer needs to experience."

"We all give inspiration on the course without even realizing it."

"Davis always said that the key to staying positive through your round is to start out that way and maintain a good attitude for your whole round."

"Golf is 90 percent mental and 10 percent mental."

" TOKEN SIDE TIP" If you can't laugh at yourself, this sport's not for you. Put the book down before you wrinkle anymore pages and give it to someone as a gift."

"I'd see golfers playing; it looked enjoyable, being outside an walking in the fresh air, but I never reallu thought about going in."

"Let's tee it up!"[3]

      Minnetonka Twin,

      I agree that is a great quote but I am swim fitness lover anyway so any reference to the water catches my attention.

      Cheryl Ladd wrote a great book. I don't feel she really received the credit she should have for the book.

      Thanks so much for stopping by.

      What a fun and refreshing hub. I didn't know Cheryl Ladd was a golfer.

      One of my favorite quotes here is, Golf is just playing pool outside.

      Thanks for an enjoyable hub on quotes.
