A landmark Scandinavian study (B. Farahmand, G. Broman, U. de Faire, D. Vågerö, A. Ahlbom May 28, 2008) of over 300,000 golfers estimated they lived a remarkable 5 years longer than those who do not play golf,
regardless of age, gender, or socioeconomic status.

A study published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine
(A D Murray, L.Daines, D Archibald, R A Hawkes, C Schiphorst, P Kelly,
L Grant, N Mutrie. October 2, 2016) concludes that “Practitioners and policymakers can be
encouraged to support more people to play golf, due to
associated improved physical health and mental health
and mental well being, and a potential contribution to
increased life expectancy”.

Golf can be played by the young and the old.
Kids can start golf at 3 or 4 years of age and
people are still playing at 104 years old.
