Golf Can Be Healthy and Fun

By: David Stargel

A lot of people don't play golf because they have never played before and don't think that they would like the game or that they would be good at it. That is one of the things that I like about golf; you don't have to be a scratch golfer to enjoy the game. If you are looking for a hobby that is good for your general well being then you should try it. Golf is a great sport for nearly everyone. The benefits of the game include exercise while enjoying the outdoors, fun and challenges for every age, and it is a game that all sorts of people play.

You can get great exercise from playing golf. All doctors agree that walking is a low stress exercise for your body. Instead of riding in a golf cart, walk the course! Eighteen holes of walking is an excellent way to work out and feel great. The stretching and moving that is involved is a way to help keep your body limber and strong. Doing something good for your body while having fun outdoors is a great way to enjoy an afternoon.

Another great thing about the game of golf is that you can play golf at any age. Golf is a sport that can be mastered by players of any age. Many teens are beginning to play golf on their high school's team and are discovering an unknown talent. Because golf is a low impact sport, it is also an excellent game for an older person to play. Picking up the game of golf is easy and fun and is a game that if begun at a young age, can be continued throughout your entire life.

Golf is loved all over the world and by all sorts of people. Golf is played in both wealthy and poor countries. Kids in inner cities play golf and so does Donald Trump! No matter where you find yourself, you can usually go to a golf course, find a person to play with and have an enjoyable day. The person who develops his or her golf game develops a skill that translates into both the business world and the sports world and is just plain fun. It is exciting to allow yourself to be matched up with a group for a pickup game. You might have nothing in common with the other players except golf but that's a great place to start.
