Golf is
Good For You
A sport that can be enjoyed in the fresh air in the great outdoors, in many different forms and even indoors too.
Annika Sorenstam
“Research has shown that golfers live up to five years longer than people who don’t play golf. What is more important than being healthy? I think we should take time for golf.”

Annika Sörenstam

10-time major champion

Golf is great for your health and wellbeing

Golf allows people to boost their mental wellbeing in a social environment. Even following your favourites by walking at golf events is good for you.
The statistics are significant:
  • Golf, as a physical activity, can help prevent and treat over 40 major chronic diseases 
  • On a regular 18-hole course, most players will walk between four and five miles, burning up to 2,000 calories 
  • If you play golf for at least 150 minutes per week you are meeting WHO global exercise guidelines
Those looking to get into the sport should be aware that golf is simply one of the best pursuits for your health.
