Astronaut playing golf on Mars, computer artwork. This would be similar to the famous golf shot played by Alan Shepard on the Moon on 31 January 1971. Martian gravity is about a third of that on Earth. The Martian atmosphere is mostly carbon dioxide and surface temperatures are well below freezing as Mars is much further from the Sun than the Earth. Martian astronauts will have to breathe their own air supply and wear heated spacesuits on the surface of Mars. Mars is a rocky desert world and has no surface water. The red-orange colour of the Martian rocks is due to a high iron oxide content. There are plans to send manned expeditions to Mars during the 21st century.
