8 Benefits of Playing Golf

The numbers are in—golf has surged in popularity since 2020. Despite shutdowns and

uncertainties, many individuals flocked to the greens, almost 25 million to be exact! With that

many people now hitting the links, it should be no surprise that there are several benefits to

playing golf. If you are still on the fence, the pros at Bluestone Country Club share the mental

and physical benefits of playing golf.





Great Exercise

Golf is an enjoyable game played with friends and family, and it is a great way to get in some

healthy exercise. Whether you are walking the course, riding in a cart, or practicing your drive at

the range, golfing is a great way to relax and burn calories. Even if you are just doing a 9-hole

outing, walking, swinging your club, and carrying your bag can burn over 1,000 calories.


Spend Time Outdoors

One of the best reasons why individuals play golf is the outdoors. It is also a great way to boost

vitamin D levels. Experts agree that the outdoors has a host of health benefits, including:

● Better sleep

● Lower blood pressure

● Increased relaxation

● Reduced anxiety

Make New Friends

Hitting the links is a great way to make new friends. If you head to the course alone, let the

clubhouse know you are willing to join another group. Golfing is also the best place to make a

new business deal or improve relationships with colleagues or your boss.





Challenge Yourself

Unlike most sports, golf is not usually a team effort. Most of the time, you play against yourself.

It is a great way to challenge yourself, and your hard work will pay off as you get better each

time you play.


Invite the Whole Family

Many clubs allow you to bring guests, so why not invite the whole family for a day of fun? If your

kids are old enough, it is a great way to exercise while walking the course.





Spirit of Competition

If you are golfing with friends, it allows you to indulge in the spirit of competition. Unlike other

sports, the best score in golf is the lowest. Challenge your friends and see who has the least

number of strokes after a round.


Reduced Stress

Being outdoors is a great stress reliever, but the game of golf itself can also help you relax. If

you are playing alone, take some time away from your problems and focus on yourself.
