Golf is more than just a game
Physical benefits of Golf
Swinging the golf club requires rhythm and movement through low impact full body exercise, the walking involved in playing golf creates the perfect environment for all to get the physical exercise we all require. It is recommended that adults have 2.5 hours of moderate exercise per week.
Endorphins are triggered by stress and stress protected us from harm and when triggered we need to release our endorphins, this was traditionally done by us flighting, fighting or freezing as endorphins trigger this reaction. If we get stressed and have no way of releasing our endorphins we become reactive and unbalanced emotionally. Changes to our lifestyle have led to more and more people loosing the way of releasing this chemical. stretching and light exercise like golf are perfect for releasing endorphins and helps to keep us in balance.
Social and Emotional benefits of Golf
Human connection and a sense of belonging where friendships are fostered and grow meaning full relationships, the aim is to create a community feel where people enjoy their leisure time (this is your happy place). My goal is to create an emotionally safe fulfilling place for people to connect, enjoy each others company and golf. Oxytocin is triggered by social and emotional bonding which we require now more than ever to help us move forward after all the stress we are seeing in the world today.
Mindfulness and spiritual benefits of golf
Connection with the outdoors and nature, golf courses are the perfect environment for a connection with the outdoors and the game has so many opportunities to feel a sense of achievement through play.
Serotonin is a natural chemical released by your body and helps you feel clam, confident and patient – being outside and exposed to natural sunlight is one of the best ways to trigger the release of serotonin, playing golf exposes us to beautiful green spaces and nature.
