It is something that everyone tries to maintain throughout their life by indulging in heavy exercises. If you are not the gym or swimming type of person, every other sport that you are familiar with can help you achieve the necessary physical fitness.

You will only need to walk, swing, and carry the club and bag while playing, which are, indeed, functional exercises. A healthy heart is guaranteed here with the walking and swinging, increasing your blood flow and heart rate. Playing golf also improves your balance and enhances brain stimulation. Even the spectators walk about 8500 steps while watching a game, which is the recommended limit.
2. Weight Loss
Your calories surely get burnt when playing golf by walking through the vast course to play the 18 holes. When your fitness is guaranteed by playing, weight loss also comes under that since you walk much more than the recommended number of steps.

Would there be a better health benefit than some good sleep? Taking in a lot of fresh air as you play will activate many cells in your respiratory system and make your breathing pattern better. As you take considerable effort to do the physical exercises, your body gets weak, and when that combines with the fresh air in your lungs, you are sure to receive some good sleep.

If you have a tournament on the mind after the set of games that you played, you will have to know how to host a tournament. It will need a specific number of players to set up the different rounds and will also entail certain rules that need to be followed. There are different types of golf tournaments that are held all around the world to offer all golfers a great time at the course. Let us have a look at a few types of golf tournaments that are being held nowadays so that you know how to host one when it’s your turn.
1. Match Play
It is a hole-by-hole competition where the player who fares the best on an individual hole emerges winning that hole. You are going head-on with your opponent in match play without having to play an entire round to determine the winner.
2. Stroke Play
The opposite of a match play, stroke play is the type of competition with your opponent against the 18-hole course. The objective of this tournament is to score the highest against your opponents in an entire round.
3. Best Ball
Best ball is the type of tournament where you can gather a team for your game rather than playing individually. You can play either stroke or match play when you have assembled the teams for the tournament. The score of every player in a team is calculated against a particular hole to find the overall score of a team.
Scramble, also known as Florida Scramble or Texas Scramble, is the most popular form of playing golf as a team. Your team should consist of 2,3, or 4 players to sign up for the tournament. By choosing any single shot that looks to be the best, and each player taking that shot from that spot will determine the winning team.
5. Bingo Bango Bongo
This is considered to be the second-most popular format of golf where the winner is decided based on 3 premises of every hole, which include:
- 1 point rewarded to the first player in every team to reach the green.
- Once everyone is on the green, each player will have to take a shot, and the one who hits the ball closest to the hole is rewarded 1 point.
- The first person to hole out will receive the last point.
Chapman is a type of golf tournament where teams with 2 players will compete. Every member has to take a tee shot, after which, the teammates have to switch balls and play the drive of the other person. The team will get to choose the second-best shot to play the next one from that spot.
In this type of tournament, teams of 2 will be competing against each other. Foursome does not allow the same player to hit every drive since team members are alternated on who hits the ball next and tees off each hole.
Many parents often come across the problem of not being able to go to their favorite movie or gathering of friends once they have kids. They skip their weekend recreational activities also when they have to look after their children. Many of them are fans of golf and have been playing it for a long time, but is now not able to indulge in a game regularly. The parents tend to skip the game for their kids either to stay home with them or to visit some other place. Doing this for a long time by forcefully avoiding the weekend game could eventually result in a loss of interest for the game and maybe even more stress.
So, what can you do about it? Take your children with you for the game and teach them how to play it. You are sure to enjoy it more with your kids than playing it alone or with your companions. But playing your kids will not be as easy as the other one. Try it out and wait till you see the better results. So, let us look at the tips on how to play golf with your kids.
1. Check for the Right Hours
You might be knowing the peak hours at a golf course, which you should try and avoid while going to play with your kids. Sunday morning is definitely not the time for you to head to the course with your kid. Look for a good time for you to play golf with your kids since, in the normal hours, there would be plenty of patrons and your fellow golfers who could easily be annoyed at the slow pace of your kid’s game. You cannot stop your kid from taking the time to learn the game, and it isn’t a good practice to keep others waiting either. So, pick the right time for you and let your kid have fun on the course by hitting as many shots as they want to learn the game properly.
2. Do Not Curb Their Excitement
Kids are surely going to be excited about the game and the drive to the location. Everything about an evening of golf would be much more exciting for them than for us. So, once you push them out of their chairs and take them to a game, you are bound to buy all the new accessories for them. The golf club, tees, ball markers, and sleeve of balls, anything and everything, could get them thrilled. That doesn’t mean you have to buy them all that they point out to, but occasional gifting of golf accessories will help in keeping their spirits high.
3. Take the Golf Cart
You might be that golfer who loves to walk through the golf course since that is an exercise and also it makes you feel fresh. But when going to the course to play with your kids, make sure to take the cart since they wouldn’t enjoy the walk as much as you do, and also it would virtually be an amusement ride for them. You don’t need to drive the cart each time you come to play with your kids, but it is best to let them have a good time the first few times until you make them walk with all the weights, which is inevitable after a point.
