Exercise sets off endorphins, gets the heart rate increasing, and gets the brain working in different ways. Being outside in green and blue spaces with friends, family, or work colleagues with no distractions also offers additional benefits like increasing your vitamin D intake which is essential for supporting your immune system and helps you sleep better. It may feel like a low-impact activity at the time, but golf is nonetheless a significant workout.

  • Diabetes

  • Heart attacks

  • Strokes

  • Breast and colon cancer

  • Dementia

It can also improve your cholesterol and body composition and moderate physical activity improves cardiovascular, respiratory, and metabolic health plus older people can increase strength and balance.


Unlike other sports where you rarely get a moment to stop and chat, golf offers many opportunities to catch up with your friends, family, or work colleagues. This has many benefits including –


  • Reduces social isolation.

  • Improves overall wellness, confidence, self-esteem, and self-worth.

  • Reduces anxiety, stress, and depression.

Serious injury is not very likely.

No physical activity comes with zero risk of injury, but golf is certainly a low-risk sport. As a low-risk impact form of activity golf rarely exposes you to the risk of serious injury. Of, course it is possible to hurt yourself but perfecting your form and swing and being careful when carrying your kit should protect you from golfing injuries.
