Any golfer can tell you golf is a strategic sport – the chess of physical activity. It is a game of skill, critical thinking and mental focus. Parks and Recreation has affordable golf opportunities geared for all levels, whether you want to learn about the sport or are already an accomplished golfer. Golf is a great way to incorporate physical activity into your life while having time to socialize and relax.
Did you know some of the benefits of a game of golf include:
- Walking an average of 4 – 6 miles.
- Burning about 370 calories for each hour spent playing.
- Providing the same benefits of a 45 minute fitness class.
- Improving flexibility and upper body strength.
The Park and Recreation golf program includes group and private lessons – all accessible and affordable. Lessons take place at our beautiful Poplar Creek Golf Course which has a pro shop, club house and restaurant – so your game of golf can be capped off with a relaxing meal!
