50 Ways to Stay Well # 24 – Golf

Playing golf regularly may prevent chronic illness, improve mental health and increase life expectancy.

These benefits can largely be explained by the exercise associated with golf. Players typically burned a minimum of 500 calories over 18 holes.

Additionally, golfers walking the full course could cover four to eight miles, while those using electric buggies typically chalked up four miles.

Fresh air and Vitamin D also contribute to improved well-being and golf is a great way to get outdoors and move your body.
