Golf Can Be Healthy: 3 Reasons to Give It a Try

By Virginia Laird

Have you ever been guilty of watching a golf tournament on television and thinking there is little to the sport? If you have, you may not quite understand the game of golf. While I am not a golf professional, I do enjoy a round of golf on occasion. Fitness professionals suggest that golf is a great way to get in some exercise without hitting the gym. Along with exercise there are many other healthy benefits to heading to the golf course, including:

  • Golfing can be good cardio
  • Golfing with friends offers great bonding
  • Fresh air can boost the immune system

Golfing Can Be Good Cardio

For those who have spent time on a golf course, you know exactly how massive the course can be. This is why many choose to invest in a cart. However, there is much exercise to be had when choosing to walk the course instead. Research suggests that walking the course can provide more than three miles of walking, depending on how many holes you decide to play. If you are one who prefers the cart, you are still going to get plenty of exercise, as it is required to do some walking from the cart path to wherever the ball is for the next drive or putt. This walk is part of a cardio workout, which plays a vital role in health and wellness. If you are looking for an exercise routine to improve your health, start making golf part of your routine.

Golfing with Friends Offers Great Bonding

Spending time with friends can improve your health in many ways, but one of the best is its ability to decrease stress. Due to the slower pace of a golf game, there can be plenty of time to chat with friends, which can help build strong bonds. Research suggests that spending time with friends can improve mental health, lower stress, and make for a happier life. If you are looking for a great activity which allows time for bonding, it may be wise to consider giving golf a try.

Fresh Air Can Boost the Immune System

Research as long suggested that fresh air can offer a boost to the immune system, which is needed to stay healthy. If you are one who needs to find something to do while reaping the benefits of life outside, it can be a good idea to take up golf. One great thing about this sport is that it can be done with or without any company. Therefore, there should be no excuse to avoid spending just a little time in the fresh air each week.

With spring in full swing, now is the time to start making plans to get outside and get your golf game in swing.
