Christmas tends to be a time of excess. Lots of food, drink, socialising, celebrating… now we’re in January, we all need a bit of a detox!
Now we know that joining a golf club may not be the first thought you have when you’re trying to recover from the holidays but January is actually the perfect time to take up golf. Why? Well, there are a few reasons…
Get fit without the pain!
For many of us, January means an attempt at losing weight! But who really wants to go from sitting at home eating mince pies to breaking your body at the gym? You may want to shift those excess pounds but wouldn’t you prefer to do it in a way that’s fun and doesn’t leave you aching for days afterwards?
Taking up golf is a great way to get fit. Scientists in Edinburgh have found that people who play golf live longer than those who don’t! Research shows that there are all round health benefits, with these physical and mental gains including improved respiratory, metabolic and cardiovascular health, a reduction in depression, anxiety and dementia. People with chronic diseases such as heart disease, colon and breast cancer, stroke and type 2 diabetes also saw improvements in their health.
The moderate physical activity that golf provides increases life expectancy, wellness and self-esteem. All gain and no pain!
Get ahead of the pack
A lot of people won’t take up golf until the spring. However, by getting a head start in January, you’ll be able to take advantage of the quieter practice facilities and putting greens. By the time your friends start, you’ll practically be a pro!
Enjoy the social benefits
The modern world has become somewhat remote. We can gain ‘access’ to people at the click of a button but there really is no substitute for personal interaction.
Golf provides a range of social benefits, whether you are conducting business on the golf course, friends catching up over a round or an individual looking to find like-minded people in your local area. From joining a a men’s, ladies, seniors or colts team to making new friends over a drink in the 19th hole, you are sure to expand your social circle by joining a golf club.
Take advantage of the deals
When it comes to financial benefits, January is the best time to take up golf. Many golf courses have great offers as an incentive to become a member at the start of the year. And Warley Park Golf Club is no different.
