SURPRISED, I was the other night when I found an online app that calculated how many calories that are burned from playing golf. It all came about when I was having a mini brainstorming session one evening with Nicola Huelin, Founder of CEO Mums, and Jude Hill, a fellow member of a networking group EVOGirls.
We've all heard that golf has a lot of health benefits, especially for your heart and I’ll share a little more about them below. BUT...
I cringe when a couple of, very clever, TV adverts are aired that show you how the media see golfers. Quiet males of retirement age, that are overweight and wear dated, brightly coloured clothing and are being bullied by the stereotypical golf widow.
Let me paint you a picture of how I see a new wave of golfers. Open-minded females, concerned with their fitness, healthy eating and fashion. Juggling life with a career they maybe single or married, or stay at home to look after their family. Enjoyment is gained from playing golf and social activities off the course.
