Golf : Benefits of Playing the Gentleman’s Game

Referred to as the game for gentlemen, golf is one of the most popular sports around the world. Below are some of the benefits of playing golf:

  • Exposure to the outdoors – golf is an outdoor sport and its courses are usually between 30 to 200 acres in size. Every time you play this game, your mind and body benefit. Experts say that regular exposure to green areas, such as the golf course, helps in reducing stress and also relaxes the body.

Unlike soccer and basketball, golf is not a highly intense game; there is plenty of downtime meaning there are more time to communicate with your co-golfers. According to studies, numerous business deals are closed while playing golf. Maybe now is the time for you to play golf with your potential clients.
  • Burns calories – a golfer must walk a lot to cover a 30 to 200-acre golf course. If you refuse to use the golf cart and prefer to walk, you can cover a distance between 5 to 7 kilometers. If you wish to burn more calories, we advise you to carry your own clubs. By doing all of these, you can burn up to 1,000 calories in just a single golf game. Who wouldn’t want to burn that much calories?
  • Keeps your heart rate up – playing this sport regularly can help you exercise your heart. Every time you walk the golf course, and carry and swing your clubs, you are actually increasing your heart rate. Physical sports, such as golf, help your heart to be healthier. This is the reason why golfers have lower risks for heart diseases compared to non-golfers. Decrease your level of bad cholesterol with golf today!
