The idea of playing golf allows you to imagine what other kind of luxury you can have when you live close to a golf course community.


Here are some reasons why you should start playing golf:


It’s a good type of exercise

The first and most important thing to note is that, that golf is a good exercise. Not only do you spend a lot of time on your feet, but you are also able to walk a lot and help your body stay active with minimal effort. If players play an 18-hole game about three to five times a week, you’ll get an optimal amount of cardiovascular exercise that is great for your heart. If the player even insists to just carry around their clubs during this course, that player burns even more calories each round. Playing a typical 18-hole course lets a player walk around the course for a good three to 6 miles, depending on the length of the court. This fun and relaxing activity will definitely help you reach your daily step goals while having a lot of fun in the process.

It let’s you stay in the great outdoors

One great thing about playing golf is that you are able to enjoy the fresh air and vibrant greenery that embraces the whole cours. This makes golf the perfect sport for the players who are used to playing outdoors. In addition, there are a lot of great benefits of spending more time outdoors. A research study by author Sara Warber, M.D., of the University of Michigan quoted, Walking is an inexpensive, low risk and accessible form of exercise and it turns out that combined with nature and group settings, it may be a very powerful, under-utilized stress buster”.

It poses as another challenge for yourself

Unlike any other team sport, playing golf is a great practice to continue on improving your own performance at your own pace. More often than not, this is a personal game between your current and previous records. It’s still better to against other players, but to start with this sport, it’s also good to compete with your own records first before going head to head with other players.

As golf is a relaxing sport, you get to have the time to talk with your colleagues while you’re taking a break.


It is the perfect past time for business meetings

If you are an entrepreneur who loves closing in deals on real estate and business, you can use this sport as well as another activity to tweak things up a bit and make it more fun. Since most of the businessmen out there love playing golf, you can foster a better relationship with your business partners. Create a personal rapport with them and start making new friends as you have fun and close your business deals. With a very relaxing ambiance on the playing course, this is an ideal place to unwind and talk more about your business. Additionally, spending more time on the field helps you expand your networks as you may meet businessmen whose businesses are aligned to yours.

It helps you relieve anxiety

When it’s just you, your club, and the ball, it’s easier to let all your worries slip away for a moment and help you get back on track to relieve all the anxiety. This is more often true when you are playing against yourself because all you will think about is getting that ball in the hole without the pressure of competition. With you just worrying about the current task at hand, it soothes your mind and gives it a break from all the things that are currently bothering you. All you have to do is start doing something different to help you relax.
