Hollywood Lakes Golf Club has an incredible offer for young people trying to improve their health, by offering under 35s full sports membership for an unbelievable €350 per year.

This offer includes seven day playing rights, an official GUI handicap and membership of one of the finest 18-hole parkland golf courses in Leinster. This great offer is limited to the first 100 applicants.

Business Development Manager at Hollywood Lakes, Richard Culhane explained, “A regular game of golf can help players meet and exceed minimum government recommendations for moderate to vigourous physical activity. The study found that golfers typically burn a minimum of 500 calories over 18 holes.”

“Golfers walking 18 holes can cover four to eight miles, while those using an electric golf cart typically chalk up four miles. Increased exposure to sunshine and fresh air were found to be additional benefits. The physical aspects of golf could also help reduce the risk of anxiety, depression and dementia, the researchers say.”

It is well known that the moderate physical activity that golf provides increased life expectancy, has mental health benefits, and can help prevent and treat more than 40 major chronic diseases such as heart attacks, stroke, diabetes, breast and colon cancer. Evidence suggests that golfers live longer than non-golfers, enjoying improvements in cholesterol levels, body composition, wellness, self-esteem and self-worth. Given that the sport can be played by the very young to the very old, this demonstrates a wide variety of health benefits for people of all ages.
