1. Physical Benefits
On average, playing a full round of golf requires the golfer to walk over five miles, carrying or pushing a bag and walking up and down different elevations. This can be a great workout, and can burn up to 2,000 calories depending on how flat or hilly the course is. If you choose to drive a cart instead of walk, you’re still getting a full body workout with each swing, as swinging a golf club uses your arms, legs, and core muscles.
2. Mental Benefits
Most sports are considered more physical than mental exercise; however, golf can be up to 90% mental. An 18-hole round is basically just one long mental exercise, constantly making you think and strategize, and even do math! Additionally, golf has been known to reduce stress, anxiety, and even depression.
3. Lifelong Benefits
One of the best things about picking up the game of golf is how long into your life you can play. Golf is a low-impact sport, meaning it causes little stress or damage to joints and muscles. This makes it much easier to play throughout old age, and an elderly person can comfortably play without worry of extreme stress or injury.
