There are so many reasons why you should start playing golf so here are just a few to get you started.
From playing golf, there is the opportunity to meet new people or develop closer relationships with those you may already know. It really is a wonderful social sport. It doesn’t matter if everyone in the party are at different levels as people of all abilities can play together.
Whether it's a social game where you can chat while walking from hole-to-hole, or a competitive game, it still has a great social aspect. After the game has finished, head to the clubhouse to discuss the great shots and missed putts.
Keep Healthy and Active:
Golf keeps you fit! Did you know that an 18-hole game means you could walk up to five miles, take more than 10,000 steps and can burn at least 900 calories! Research shows that it helps mental well-being and help you live longer!
The Great Outdoors:
There is nothing better than being able to enjoy the Great British outdoors, and golf can definitely do this! Walking round the beautiful scenery that The Park Course and Downs Course provide enjoying the views of the local area. There really is nothing better to enjoy whatever time of year!
With golf keeping you fit, healthy and gets people out into the great outdoors, it really is a great way to reduce stress, improve mood and self-esteem.
Golf can be fitted into all lifestyles and it doesn't take hours to play. It is affordable and ladies coaching at Goodwood starts from £12.
