It is the fresh air and beautiful countryside, which is part of the wonderful game of golf, that help to release endorphins in our bodies, and so that’s why we feel happy, relaxed and stress-free when we play golf. Add to it the social interactions and packed events calendar, which is enjoyed by Golf Club members, and you’ll wonder why and what you ever used to feel stressed about!
