The Many Health Benefits of Golf

The next time someone comments that your favorite sport is nothing more than a leisurely pastime; prove them wrong by showing them our most recent infographic.

Playing golf brings you many health benefits. Sure, it’s relaxing and fun, but golf is also great exercise for your body, mind, and spirit.

Playing golf burns calories, gets you moving, restores balance, builds brain power, and makes you happier overall. Did you know that walking an 18-hole round of golf is roughly the same as a 5-mile walk? And that a 5-mile walk provides the recommended daily number of steps adults should take?

If you want to experience the health benefits of playing golf, ditch the golf cart and caddy, if possible. Walking and carrying your clubs help you burn even more calories and get more physical activity. Walking the course also offers more of an opportunity to enjoy the beautiful scenery—and if you’re golfing on any of JC Golf’s San Diego golf courses, there’s certainly no shortage of beauty around you.

So book a tee time and reap the rewards! But first, please enjoy our infographic below.
