A great place to hang out with friends...

Playing golf can bring you some impressive health and wellbeing benefits that can help you look and feel at your best.

5 Reasons to play

It gets you active

During the average game of golf you can walk around five to six miles. Golf burns more calories than you’d think: playing an 18-hole game of golf burns at least 900 calories. Golf also combines all the known weight-loss benefits of walking combined with the toning and muscle strengthening benefits of swinging the clubs and carrying or pulling your golf bag.

It brings people closer together

Golf is a great way to meet new people. Wherever there’s a golf course, a host of rewarding new friendships awaits you. Friendships that are likely to flourish, thanks to the convivial atmosphere of the game itself and the ready-made social life at the clubhouse afterwards.

It helps combat stress

“Golf really does tick all the boxes for things you need for optimal wellbeing.It offers some important feel-good factors, such as an active social life and regular physical activity of the best kind – green exercise outside in nature.

It’s good for your heart

Golf’s powerful combination of stress-busting exercise, fresh air and camaraderie can help promote long term heart health. It can reduce blood pressure and cholesterol and cut your risk of stroke and diabetes and maintain your flexibility.

It can help you live longer

Golf’s unique combination of outdoor exercise and social interaction can increase your life expectancy by up to five years, according to a study from the Karolinska Institute, in Sweden. Regular walking, such as the four hours it typically takes to play a round of golf, can also help ward off dementia.
