DREAM DICTIONARY - Golf :Our dream studies have revealed some interesting results with golf dreams. One dream about golf followed a night when the dreamer had been thinking about a report he had been writing. Each time he got closer and closer until he got it just right. At first we found no link to golf - it just seemed bizarre. Yet after some thought I realised that golf is a sport where you get closer and closer to some goal until you hit the target (which is a perfect symbol for rewriting a report - each time getting closer and closer to how you want it).
Golf can also be a sexual metaphor. Any dream about getting something in the hole can be a sexual metaphor. One dreamer in our study had a golf dream after waking up sexually aroused. Freud clearly understood sexual dreams - the mind will use many different symbols to express sexual arousal.

EXAMPLE DREAMSExample dream : A golf dream occurred when the dreamer was worried that someone might find out the truth of the dreamer. He had just told a lie. The object of a game of golf is to get nearer and nearer to some object. Golf in dreams can link to any situation where this "closer and closer" theme features. In this case the dreamer worried that someone was getting closer and closer to the truth.
Example dream : The dreamer was likely to bump into his ex girlfriend the next day. They had almost bumped into each other a couple of times since their split - this was getting more and more likely - eventually they were bound to bump into each other. Golf was a symbol of this being very likely - each time they were getting closer and closer. (just like in golf where you get closer and closer)
Example dream : A golf dream followed on from a night when the dreamer was preoccupied with writing a report. Each time he wrote it got closer to the truth. The dreamer had got quite emotionally involved with it wanting to get it just right.
Example dream : A golf dream linked to the dreamer wanting to get something done but every time she got interrupted Each time he was getting closer and closer to finishing it.
