In later life, golf is a great sport to enjoy with friends and to meet new ones – on the fairways and at the 19th hole!
It is also great for your health. Golf, as a physical activity, can help prevent and treat 40 major chronic diseases, including diabetes, heart attacks, stroke, breast and colon cancer.

“Our findings suggest that golf should be considered when prescribing exercise for older adults because it appears to be safe, feasible and an adherent form of exercise for a better, healthier quality of life.”
