There are so many benefits of living in a golf community that they are impossible to measure. Here are just a few ways the golf resort lifestyle can enhance your life:
- Great playing experience
There’s something about standing on the first tee of a championship-level golf course. Private golf clubs take pride in the design of their course, as well as its condition. And you’ll regularly have the opportunity to play with skilled golfers. Don’t settle for less than the best golfing experience, you deserve it !
- Develop personal relationships
Friendship, community and peace of mind are pillars of the golf resort experience. The result of the time you spend with other members will lead to lifelong friendships both on and off the course, and not just for you, but for your whole family.
- Develop business relationships
According to an article on Forbes’ website, we “now know that the combination of golf’s semi-egalitarian ways (i.e., old and young can play together and the handicapping system keeps play fair among uneven participants) and that the game’s four hour time window is the perfect platform for building business relationships.”
- Family interactions
As parents, it’s easy to be concerned about the people your kids hang out with. You will have peace of mind knowing that your children are spending time with families with similar values to your own. And having fun playing the terrific game of golf is much healthier than playing video games or staring at their phone.
- Surrounding yourself with quality individuals
Research has shown that we are more affected by our environment than we think, and therefore, we should pay closer attention to the environments where we spend our free time. When you become a member of a golf club, you will be spending your time with other successful individuals.
- Golf teaches life skills
Success at golf requires many of the same skills needed to be successful at life, including patience, focus, perseverance, optimism, hard work, determination, strategy, humility, and so on.
- Personal fitness
Golf is great for your flexibility, core stability, power, balance, coordination and cardiovascular health. Even if you are using a cart, you can expect to burn more than 800 calories during a round of golf. A new study from the Swedish medical university Karolinska Institute claims that the death rate for golfers is 40% lower than for other people of the same sex, age and socioeconomic status, which correspond to a 5-year increase in life expectancy.
