We know that many seniors don’t get enough exercise, but walking a golf course is excellent aerobic activity. The advantage of golf is that it doesn’t feel like exercise. When lost in concentration and competition, you don’t realize that swinging the clubs or walking a course burns calories and builds muscle strength.
Just as we learned that the social camaraderie while drinking wine offers more benefits to your health than the wine itself, the social nature of golf also provides favorable outcomes. Spending quality time talking and relaxing with friends can reduce stress and increase a healthy lifestyle.
Choose from over 25 million Americans who play golf to set up a date for eighteen holes. You and your friends will prevent bone loss, improve coordination and balance, and mitigate the risk of age-related disease.
