Here are some reasons why women should give golf a go. The women’s section at Exeter Golf and Country Club spans across decades of ages, from teenagers through to seniors. You’re never too old or too young to start, we have female golfers who started as toddlers and female golfers who are in their late 80s! Sometimes, ladies learn to play a little later in life, but one thing’s sure…once the golfing bug has bitten, you’re at it for life.
Golf is one of the most social sports. Appealing to the multi-tasking ladies out there, golf enables you to exercise and catch up with friends at the same time! Whether you play 7 holes for an hour or so, or play the full 18 holes over four hours, you can chat between holes, work off up to 900 calories and then relax with a swim or a glass of wine in the bar afterwards.
Golf’s unique handicap scoring system means that players of all levels can play together either socially or competitively – it’s a even playing field.
According to ‘Get Into Golf’, “Golf can help keep you active, burn calories, stay in shape, lower cholesterol, reduce the risk of heart disease and research shows it may even help you live longer. You can walk around 4-5 miles in the average game of golf, burn at least 900 calories and will take more than 10,000 steps, you will easily achieve the recommended 150 minutes of moderate exercise a week recommended by the NHS to keep healthy.”
Top up your vitamin D with an hour or two in the sunlight. Exercising outdoors is a scientifically-proven way to help improve your mood, stress levels and self-esteem.
Help prevent osteoporosis and strengthen bones through the brisk walking and swinging action.
Golf offers a great lifestyle. The parkland course at Exeter Golf and Country Club has mature trees and views stretching across to Haldon Hill. With bars, award-winning Wear Park Spa and the use of heated indoor and outdoor swimming pools, with steam room, jacuzzi and sauna, your golf membership can really improve your lifestyle from a health, well-being and social point of view.
