Take the next step. Health experts say that taking 10,000 steps per day – the equivalent of 18 holes of golf or five miles – will improve overall fitness.
Feel the burn. The total caloric expenditure for an 18-hole round is approximately 2,000 calories for walking while carrying clubs, versus only 1,300 calories when riding in a cart.
Soak up the sun. When you are out playing a game of golf on a beautiful day, you get an adequate dose of vitamin D, which is essential for building strong bones and good overall health.
