The significant health benefits of golf are nothing new to Ross Bridge residents. Many studies show us that playing golf helps to improve your health and keep you fit. When living in Ross Bridge, residents have daily access to one of the greatest exercises for your body and mind.

Here are just a few of the many health benefits experienced by regular golfers:

Keeps You Active

Golf, like any sport, improves your health by keeping you active and moving.  You’ll improve circulation and reduce body weight, cholesterol, and blood pressure by playing weekly. The Ross Bridge golf course, which is part of the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail, is an incredible 8,191 yards – that’s more than four and half miles! If you walk 18 holes twice week, you’ll have walked over nine miles.

Improves Sleep Patterns

After walking for miles, you can bet you’ll be exhausted. Our amenities at Ross Bridge will certainly help you recover and get ready for a long night’s rest. Golfing will guarantee a solid slumber, helping you to fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer.

Improves Bone Health

Golf is unique because you get all the benefits of exercise without the aches, pains, and injuries.  It is a low-impact sport that will help to define and strengthen muscles while protecting your bones. Catching a few rays also gives you a surge of Vitamin D, a vitamin that’s good for bone health.

Boosts Your Mood

Something about hitting a perfect shot to the center of the fairway, or spending your day in the beautiful outdoors, is bound to put you in a good mood.  Your happy mood will carry over into your daily life, making the rest of your day just as pleasant.

Develops Discipline

Golf is an excellent practice to discipline your brain and sharpen your focus. This skill can benefit you in all other parts of your life, making you more efficient and clear-minded on a daily basis.
