Golf for life

Avid golfers will agree that a day on the green is more than just a sport or a hobby – it’s the key to living a happy, healthy life. You may think that sounds extreme, but it turns out they’re not wrong.

When it comes to getting your heart rate up, you don’t always have to sweat it out in a cardio session. Finding a low-impact activity that you enjoy, and are happy to do regularly, is a sure-fire way to ensure that you are getting in enough exercise. A few rounds of golf every week could be all you need to keep fit and healthy.

Did you know that you can walk up to seven kilometres playing an 18-hole golf course? Reports state walking can benefit your health in more ways than one – it can reduce your risk of heart disease, improve the fitness of your heart and lungs, help to manage conditions like muscle and joint stiffness, high cholesterol and diabetes, strengthen your bones and even improve your balance. Regular exercise – as we all know – can also help you to keep fit and trim, particularly if you’re ditching the golf cart and rolling your clubs from hole to hole yourself (rather than carrying them, which can cause stress to your back and shoulders). Plus, being outside and breathing in the fresh air benefits your digestive system, strengthens your immune system and gives you more energy and a sharper mind. And we can’t forget the power of good old vitamin D from the sun for promoting bone growth and strength by helping our bodies to absorb calcium – just ensure you stay protected by wearing sunscreen and a hat when you’re out on the course.

Above all this, golf is a great way to keep in touch with friends – and also to make new ones. Did you know, there’s a nine-hole golf course at Palm Lake Resort Beachmere Bay and the Palm Lake Group also owns and operates Pelican Waters Golf Club (the top public access golf course on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast)?

So, grab your clubs, hit your local course and enjoy a day spent doing your body some good. It turns out, a golf session is just what the doctor ordered!
