About Golf & Health

Whether you’re looking to get outdoors, increase your mental wellness, or spend more time with friends, golf can provide the physical, social and mental benefits to significantly improve your quality of life.

In fact, all of the World Health Organization’s key criteria for health enhancing physical activity can be achieved through golf. It is an activity that incorporates strength, balance, endurance and cognitive challenges, and has also been shown to improve cardiovascular fitness, enhance mental agility and foster social connections.

In recent studies, it’s even been found to combat over 40+ chronic diseases. As a result, this centuries-old pastime has emerged as a safe and holistic wellness activity that anyone can enjoy.
