PGA Professional and owner of Dunes Golf Centre - Peter Myers had this to say...
"We set up the Tuesday Club to provide an opportunity for locals to meet up socially and to get outdoors doing something healthy. Golf is a game that can be played well in to our later years and there are so many health benefits both physically and mentally in doing so.
"The Tuesday club has grown in popularity since we launched it in 2017 and it's proving a big hit with new and existing golfers alike."
One of the members at my old club, Hainsworth Park in East Yorkshire, didn’t take up the game until the age of 67. He was walking round the course three times a week pretty much right up to the day he died, aged 95!
In his own words; golf gave him a new lease of life and something to really get into following retirement.
People who play golf live longer, a major study has found, as it shows the game helps prevent 40 major chronic diseases!
Researchers reviewed 5,000 studies into golf and wellbeing and found the sport has physical and mental health benefits for people of all ages and can even increase life expectancy by five years.
Balance and muscle endurance in older people are improved by playing golf and it is also likely to improve cardiovascular, respiratory and metabolic health.
Researchers said golf demonstrates a wide variety of health benefits for people of all ages. Golfing could also help those who suffer chronic diseases including heart disease, type 2 diabetes, colon and breast cancer and stroke, as well as helping reduce the risk of anxiety, depression and dementia, researchers found.
Lead researcher Dr Andrew Murray, from the physical activity for health research centre at the University of Edinburgh, said: “Evidence suggests 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.”
One study in Sweden found regular golfers lived an average of five years longer than non-golfers!
