Golf

In the 2016 Rio Olympics, Golf was included as an event for the first time in 100 years. Why not use that as inspiration to take up your clubs and have a swing for yourself!

Golf provides a stimulating mental challenge combined with a healthy walk in pleasant surroundings and can be played by people of all abilities and ages. It may be a casual pastime or a competitive activity and can be good for your health and your heart. Walking an average course for a round of golf can be between five to seven kilometres. If you pull your clubs or carry them, you’ll burn even more calories each round and benefit even more. It is a great way to tie together socialising and exercising, both important parts of the recovery pathway.
