Golf was probably one of the most boring games I ever played! At least when I was younger. Time and age have chaged that perception. It has a place in your recreational line up.
Golf is a game of patience and social connectedness in an outdoor atmosphere. It can also be a place where new ideas percolate.
I didn't come from a golf playing family and never really cared much about being a "clubby". Probably because I'm a little more into deep ideas and not always so great at small talk.
...but age changes people. I now see golf as a way to be in nature, be around people you want to connect with and a worthwhile recreational activity. It may not be as exciting as rock climbing or diving or maybe mountain biking but it has its place in your recreational line up.
