A study from the World Cancer Research Fund found that many women in the UK could eliminate their chance of the disease if they lead a moderately active lifestyle.

Walking regularly, such as the walking involved in an average round of golf, can substantially cut your risk.  The Government recommends a total of 150 minutes of moderate exercise each week – and you can easily achieve this if you play a round of golf.

As well as the obvious health benefits associated with playing golf regularly it is a great social activity. Playing parters can become unqualified friends and with plenty of time for conversation and fun – it is the perfect way to make new friends and grow closer bonds with people you already know.

Friendship, fresh air and exercise, golf has it all…

More info: You’ll receive a basic introduction to golf from PGA professionals, together with information about club membership and follow-on coaching opportunities. Equipment will be provided so all you have to do is turn up on the day in comfortable clothing.

If you are interested in taking up golf and seeing what benefits it can bring to your life visit www. getintogolf.org/map or call 08001182766 for more details and to find a centre near you.
