The Health Benefits of Golf

The Health Benefits of Golf

Its official, golf is good for you! There are so many benefits of playing golf:

  • Exposure to outdoor environment
  • Heart health, keeping heart rate up
  • Brain stimulation, increased blood flow
  • Weight loss from burning calories
  • Reduced stress
  • Improved sleep
  • Low risk of injury
  • Live longer
  • Social sport

Simply put, golfers live longer, have better overall physical health, and gain wellness/ mental health benefits. These associations are likely due to the golden combination of walking, muscular activity, and social interaction (amongst other factors). So whether you’re young or old; a scratch golfer or have never picked up a club before, there are now even more reasons to head to your nearest course!

  • Physical benefits include: improved cardiovascular risk-factor profiles; improved blood-glucose levels; and increased life expectancy
  • Psychological benefits include: improved self-esteem, improved confidence, and reduced anxiety
  • Golf also provides a great opportunity for developing interpersonal skills, emotional control, and enhancing social connections


Check out this website for more information on the Health Benefits of Golf

“The Golf & Health Project will help drive an increased participation in golf, improve the public image of our sport, and increase support for golf in the political arena.

It will achieve this by analysing the benefits of golf for health to include improvements in life expectancy, physical and mental health. It will also assess and advise on ilness and injury associated with golf.  Once this information has been gathered, it becomes centrally available through this website, whilst also being communicated and disseminated to golfers, potential golfers, and decision makers to increase awareness of golf’s positive influence on health and well-being.

Part of the project aim is to provide information about the benefits of golf, and how this can be achieved for people of both genders, all ages, and all backgrounds.

By aggregating and reviewing existing research into the health benefits of golf, a clear picture is being established of what benefits there are and what others there might be.  Identifying the gaps in research then provides an opportunity to conduct new, innovative, and peer-reviewed research to academically assess benefits.

We aim to share findings widely, but also publish key articles in leading scientific journals, for example the British Journal of Sports Medicine- the number 1 ranked Sports Science and Sports Medicine publication worldwide.”

The Project is sponsored by the World Golf Foundation – For More Information visit

FootSports at Newcastle Golf Centre

FootSports at Newcastle Golf Centre Dublin offer unique sports activities for all ages.

No matter what the occasion is,  Newcastle Golf Centre has activities to suit you. We now offer you a range of FootSports. FootSports are hybrids of two or more sports. A football, rugby ball or American football is used depending which game you are playing. They are fun, competitive and can be enjoyed by players of all ages and abilities.

FootGolf combines football and golf and is played over 18 holes on a golf course. The aim of the game is to kick the football from the teeing area and into the hole in the fewest number of kicks. Its time to Kick and Putt!


RugbyGolf is similar to FootGolf except a rugby ball is used. RugbyGolf is also played on the golf course over 18 holes. You can throw or kick the ball. This provides the added challenge of not knowing where the ball will bounce when it lands!

FootDarts is our newest activity. Players score points by kicking or throwing a football at the giant inflatable dartboard. Definitely not as easy as it looks!


FootBowl brings together soccer, american football and bowling. Knock down your opponents pins before they knock down yours. You can kick or throw the ball. Can be played by players of all ages and all abilities. Strike!

We cater for families, groups, stags, hens, sports teams, corporate days and more. You can play one or more activities. We can also provide a room if required for a birthday party, group outing or some other event.

There is no booking required for FootGolf and RugbyGolf, however we do recommend pre-booking for FootDarts and FootBowl.

RugbyGolf at Newcastle Golf Centre

RugbyGolf at Newcastle Golf Centre

Have you ever imagined kicking a rugby ball on a golf course?

In 2015 we introduced RugbyGolf (or rugby FootGolf  as it is also known)at Ballybane to celebrate Ireland’s World Cup exploits. Since then it has been available at Ballybane FootGolf.

Rugby FootGolf
Played with the same rules as FootGolf the only difference is the shape of the ball. And herein lies the challenge! With FootGolf the ball generally rolls in one direction. In RugbyGolf, once kicked, the destination of the ball is not so certain!

If kicking the ball is not your strong point, no problem, you can throw the ball also, similar to a pass in rugby. It’s all about getting the ball from the teeing area and into the hole in the fewest kicks or throws.

A brilliant, fun activity for families, groups, stags, hens, team building, sports clubs and more RugbyGolf puts a new twist on the worlds fastest growing sport.
