Golf has long been considered the perfect game for retirement. It
combines the benefits of fresh air with just the amount of exercise
that is necessary.
While for avid golfers, retiring on a golf course is the very
definition of the good life, non-golfing enthusiasts are also
increasingly warming up to the idea. What attracts the latter? The
peace and beauty of the golf courses.
Retirement communities built around golf courses, are proliferating in
areas where you can golf most of the year, particularly in Central and
Southern California, Florida, Hawaii, and Arizona. Besides, retirement
golf communities can be found at locations throughout the world.
Apart from the pleasure derived from golfing during retirement,the
health benefits of golf are numerous. Studies have shown that playing
golf increases one's flexibility and strength, lowers blood pressure
and improves cardiovascular fitness. Hence, seniors have another reason
to indulge in golf post retirement.
