5 Reasons why you should Go out and Have a Game of Golf!

By: Victor Lensora

Firstly, golf is a great way of getting outside and to get some fresh air, a top tip is to go for a round of golf in the morning before work, and this kick starts your body into gear and will leave you feeling fresh and awake all day!

Secondly, it's a great way to lose weight; in 18 holes of golf you can walk many kilometres over a long period of time. Walking for an hour by itself burns between 150-300 calories, add on to that carrying a bag or wheeling your bag, furthermore as its over a long time period then it burns a higher proportion of fat, and so you have got a good fat burning system in place!

Thirdly, golf is character building! Golf like several other sports can be extremely frustrating; there are the good times, and the bad, and it pushes your patience and nerve to the limit. This helps you become a more rounded person as you learn to deal with the ups and downs, this in turn can then be applied to life!

Fourthly, it can be great fun; there is hardly a greater thing than having a pleasant round of golf on a sunny afternoon, stretching the legs out and hitting a few birdies in the afternoon sun!

Finally, it is great way to meet people and to expand your social circle, whether it's on the course or in the bar after your round of golf, golfers are usually a happy, sociable breed who will be glad to have a chat. Going for a round of golf provides you with the opportunity to meet like minded people and also opens up networking opportunities!

So go out today and have a round of golf, as well as it being fun, it'll be healthy and give you the opportunity to meet new people as well as helping you to become a well rounded person!

Happy Golfing!
