There is a misconception that golf is for the elite, This is not true !. Golf is the most relaxing sport you could play and the biggest advantage is that you don't have to be a good player to enter into competitive golf.

Golf is a social game that gives players the chance to meet new friends and enjoy a enjoyable walk. 

Reasons For Women To Play Golf

More and more women are choosing to take up golf because it has so many great aspects to it.

However, there are still too many women out there unaware of this great sport and what it could offer them.

1. Exercise

Golf is a great way to burn calories without noticing. As it is more about endurance rather than extreme physical exertion, anyone can learn golf. Golf requires anywhere from 1.5 - 5 hours of walking and swinging a club, depending on how many holes you decide to play. The average golfer will burn around 1500 calories per 18 holes of golf!

2. Socialising

Golf is one of the most social sports ever invented. You have time to talk about pretty much anything with your friends and partners during a round of golf! Golfers tend to be a member of one particular club even though they may play other courses, and most golf clubs have ladies’ mornings and competitions, encouraging members to meet and socialise. Learning golf is a really fun thing to do with one or more friends. A golf club is a great community to be a part of at any age.

3. Relationships

Golf’s unique ‘Handicap’ scoring system means that players of all levels can play together. Traditionally golf has been a sport that helped bond father and son, but with an increasing amount of learning golf programmes focused towards women and families we are seeing an increase in female golfers playing golf with partners, friends and children.

4. Fresh Air

Each time you breathe out, you let out toxins. If you stay in a closed in area for a long period of time, you will end up breathing in the same air over and over again. The oxygen content of the air will go down continually as you (and whoever else happens to be in the room with you) breathe out carbon dioxide and other wastes. Fresh air however is full of negative ions, plenty of Oxygen and only microscopic amounts of pollutants, meaning that it will refresh your body and give you a natural lift. Golf requires you to be outside, usually in areas surrounded by trees, breathing fresh air for long periods of time. Another great reason women should learn golf!

5. Sunshine

Whilst the sun isn’t always shining in the UK, at least when it is, or when you are playing golf abroad, you’re getting all the benefits of being out in the sunshine. We all have to take care around direct sunshine, but sunshine is vital for us, being our main source of
Vitamin D. Research shows that the sun improves sleep, increases natural protection against diseases and enhances people’s moods.

6. Clothing

Naturally, this is a subjective topic but we believe that women’s golf clothes are some of the classiest available, without being too expensive. Polo shirts, cut off trousers or shorts can suit any age and be dressed up or down. Lady golfers are not required to wear short skirts or tight clothing, like many other sports require.

7. Learning and Competing

Golf requires both physical and mental ability and is a high skill game. Golf provides a rare opportunity to learn and compete in a sport from a very young age to well into senior citizen status! Golf can not only keep you fit and active during your retirement, but it is also a great way to keep an ageing mind agile and focused.

That's the whole point of obtaining a handicap so you can improve and reduce your handicap at your pace.
