With more exercise comes more blood circulation, and this means a healthier brain. The golf game helps stimulate our minds, keeps our brain functioning optimally, and even helps improve nerve connections and neural networks. This is good news when it comes to preventing dementia. Golf keeps the mind active. Simple tasks like lining up a shot, deciding which club to use, and even keeping score all help stimulate the brain. It’s necessary to keep your mind (and body) active as you get older, so play golf regularly to promote mental AND physical well-being.
