Sometimes, the grass really is greener on the other side ... when the other side is a golf course, at least. While a golf course might not be boundless, the benefits of the game certainly are!


1. Golf exposes you to the Great Outdoors.

On a nicely manicured lawn, too. But really: Nature provides many health benefits for both mind and body, including plenty of opportunities to soak up Vitamin D.


 2. Golf helps build relationships.


You can talk, because you won't be gasping for breath.


3. Golf helps you burn calories.


What are you up to? Oh, you know ... Just getting in seven to eight miles. Walking nine holes—especially when carrying your bag—can help you burn as many as 700 calories.


4. Golf helps reduce stress.No4

 5. Golf clothes are fantastic.
