WHY PLAY GOLF

Charley Hull & Co talk through why they started in the game and why you should try it.

HEALTH BENEFITS

Golf is maybe not a sport you would associate as being great exercise, however, golf can offer you a range of health benefits.

The stats above may surprise you, but even more important is the knock on effect.

  • One round of golf equates to the 150 minutes of exercise recommended by the NHS per week! 
  • Regularly burning 900 calories will keep your weight in check and you'll begin to see a drop in your waistline 
  •  Getting active through golf will keep you moving which can help prevent and manage a variety of conditions including coronary heart disease, stroke and Type 2 diabetes. Golf will have a real impact on your health and wellbeing from the minute you start but it will also help protect you in the future too.
  • Golf will make you sleep better! The moderate activity will release endorphins, making you feel happier, reduce stress and get a better nights rest. 

SOCIAL BENEFITS

  • Playing golf is a very socialable sport. The relaxed atmosphere of playing 9 or 18 holes lends itself to free flowing conversation.
  • Golf offers a great opportunity to catch up with friends as well as meet new people. 3-4 hours gives you plenty of time to get to know people whilst also enjoying the pleasures of golf.      
  • Golf's handicap system ensures anyone, of any ability can compete. Whether you're playing a friendly round with your friends or a club competition, the handicap systems allows a far and fun contest.
