Is golf a good way to lose weight?
Is It Really Exercise? A golfer walks roughly four miles (or almost seven kilometres) and can burn as many as 1,000 calories during an average 18-hole round, with help from swinging clubs and carrying their own bag. Playing more spaced out or hillier courses will obviously burn more calorie than compact, flat courses.
Does golf work your abs?
Every time you swing your club, you’re engaging your core muscles and improving their strength and mobility. It’s no wonder pro golfers have some of the best abs around.
Why golf is good for your health?
So, golf exercises your heart and keeps your heart rate up. This will naturally lower your risk for heart disease and other cardiovascular issues, as well as potentially lowering your levels of ‘bad’ cholesterol. Regularly playing golf may even lead to an increase in life expectancy.
