Can Golf Give You a Good Workout?

Golf might seem like a leisurely activity that is more of a fun thing rather than a great workout.

Turns out thatโ€™s not entirely true.

While the golf course might be predominantly businessmen or retired guys, it can be a womanโ€™s paradise too.

You probably canโ€™t rely on golf alone as your exercise routine, but it does have its benefits.

Hereโ€™s why you should put golf into your workout rotation now and then.

1. Playing Golf Burns Calories

Sure, thereโ€™s a lot of standing around when you play a game of golf, but if you skip the cart and walk between holes, youโ€™re actually burning a pretty good number of calories.

Experts say that youโ€™ll walk up to five miles if you play all 18 holes.

Your calorie burn is boosted a little when you walk up hills and through the sand traps.
