It’s strange to think how much time and money go into golf each year when you consider that a short hundred or so years ago in 1900, there were only an estimated 1,000 golf clubs in the country. If you think golf seems to be a quality associated with money or high class now, you should have seen the national perception of the sport in the early 1900’s.
It’s easy to see why and how golf got popular. While some joke about the presence of a golf cart, it is actually quite a physically intense and gratifying sport, and an effective exercise if engaged in fully.
A man weighing about 175 lbs. can be expected to burn almost 500 calories per golf outing if he’s carrying his own clubs. On a typical nine-hole course, a golfer might walk almost 2.5 miles. That’s quite a bit of exercise for any individual, especially someone who might be thought of as a taker of shortcuts, thanks to the stigma surrounding the use of motorized carts in the sport. A player may only have 14 clubs in their bag at one time, however, making the 500 calories per outing something of an “at most” estimate.
