Individuals who play golf will find that they burn calories quickly. Those who forgo a golf cart and caddie can find themselves burning up to 2,000 calories over the course of 18 holes, while those riding in a cart can still see significant calorie burning of more than 800 per round. Walking with a golf bag and swinging a club also have the added benefit of strengthening core muscles.
Another benefit of playing golf is giving one’s eyes a workout. This occurs because golf requires players to focus on a target that is off in the distance.

The constant focusing is helpful for anyone who believes their vision could be improved on,
