Since I joined the golf club, not only have I been playing more golf but I've been getting some great exercise. Namely, walking the golf course.
Great Oaks Country Club is a particularly hilly layout in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Southwest Virginia. Although most people opt to ride, I walk every sweaty step toting my clubs. I love it!
Of course, I want to play well. But I also view my time on the course as a hike and therapy. My legs are stronger and I've shed several pounds, even though I was reasonably trim before.
Call me old-fashioned, but I think it's a shame more people don't walk. It's good exercise and provides a more natural rhythm to the game.
