Bread Golfers

Having fun and staying healthy

Tired of visiting the doctor and hearing how you need to be more active, be more social, and get more sun? Why not take up golfing? Golfing is known as the leisure sport, but it still promotes tons of health benefits. A recent article written on gives the top ten benefits of golfing.

The potential benefits range from burning calories to strengthening the bladder. If you want the benefit of burning calories, they say walking instead of riding in a cart and carrying your golf clubs can potentially result in about 1,000 calories burned per game. Also, it may sound surprising, but golf has been said to help strengthen the bladder because learning to “hold it” can strengthen its capacity. You can find all the other potential benefits of golfing here. Now get out and have fun! 

“Golf is the closest game to the game we call life. You get bad breaks from good shots, you get good breaks from bad shots, but you have to play the ball where it lands.” - Bob Jones
