January 31 2022 | Golf

The benefits of golf are well known; from the amount of walking on the course to being out in the fresh air and playing a round at Hever Castle Golf & Wellbeing is no exception.

According to England Golf the benefits of golf are as follows:
• Exercises body and mind
• Reduces anxiety of isolation
• 18 holes burns 1200 calories
• A community of 2 million golfers
• A game for all ages

Taking part in a round of golf on the 18 hole championship course will mean you walk 3 – 6 miles with walking one of the best forms of exercise.

Playing a round of golf also offers a social activity and a chance to share time with friends and family.

The Waterside provides the perfect place to enjoy drinks, lunch or afternoon tea before or after your round.

The PGA professionals at Hever Castle Golf & Wellbeing are available 7 days a week to help you improve any aspect of the game.

Director of Golf Peter Parks said: “Now more than ever the benefits that golf has to offer are being understood by those already playing the game or those thinking of starting. Being in the fresh air away from screens is an important part of looking after ourselves. Golf provides us with a pursuit than can last a lifetime. It can be enjoyed by people of all ages and abilities and provides fantastic social opportunities for all those that take part.

“Helping golfers of all levels enjoy the game and play it better is a privilege and doing so in the setting of Hever Castle is a tremendous honour.”
