Golf is one of the most popular sports in the world. Although it looks like a simple sport, golf has many benefits.
Quoted from the Better Health Channel, golf can be mentally stimulating combined with a healthy walk in a pleasant environment. This sport can also be played by any age even though the ability is limited.
Golf can be good for heart health because you have to walk on the course area with an average distance of five to seven kilometers. If done in three to five times a week, individuals will get optimal body resistance for the heart.
Golf games are also held in the open area. This allows the body to receive vitamin D from sunlight, which supports the body’s immunity, which is especially needed in the era of the corona virus pandemic.
As the golf course is situated in a scenic location, the individual playing it will also benefit from the experience of being out in nature. Being outdoors and close to nature can help reduce anxiety and is thought to improve concentration.
