Your heart

Golf helps reduce stress and promote relaxation, leading to reduced blood pressure and cholesterol. Physical exercise produces adrenaline which gets your heart pumping, strengthening it naturally and lowering your risk of heart disease.

Your Brain

A round of golf boosts creativity, mental focus, encourages strategic-thinking, breathing and stress management. Golf stimulates blood circulation to the brain, as well as the release of endorphin. Moreover, adequate exposure to sunlight also boosts serotonin release, elevating your mood, improving sleep, and reducing cancer risks associated with vitamin D deficiency, and effectively combat pain and stress.
