Golf is a game for both the body and the mind, as it is both mentally and physically challenging. There are many health benefits, including the following:

1. Good for the heart. Golfing typically involves walking (if there is no motorized golf cart), carrying a heavy bag, and swinging, all of which increase the heart rate and blood flow, which decreases the risk of stroke and diabetes as well as the levels of blood pressure and cholesterol.

2. Stimulates the brain. Daily walking has been shown to strengthen the brain’s memory circuits, as the physical activity pumps blood to the brain, improving its function.

3. Weight loss. Naturally, exercise leads to weight loss. Doctors recommend a daily step count of 10,000, and a standard 18-hole round can help golfers reach and exceed this. goal.
