It’s a well-known fact that stress is bad for the health, and can be a distraction that deters one from reaching your goals. Women are most especially susceptible to stress with the multifarious roles they play – wife, mother, and career woman.
A good way to beat stress is to find a sport such as golf that provides opportunities to de-stress while allowing one to enjoy the beauty of nature. While this sport is generally associated with men, women can also benefit from it in more ways than one. For instance, the sport can teach one patience and perseverance as it requires hitting a small ball for some distance until one can finally sink it in a small hole in the ground. Aside from making one feel good at achieving a goal and helping one cope with stress, the game has several beneficial aspects that can make one look at life more positively.
It’s a good form of exercise
Since golf requires long hours of walking around the course and swinging your club (depending on how many holes you plan to play), you burn calories without you noticing it. Golf requires an average round of 18 holes which takes about four hours, which can make you burn up to an amazing 1,500 calories, lower cholesterol, regulate blood pressure, and help cut the risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes.
It improves your social life
Golf is probably one of the most social sports ever invented. Each round of golf allows you to chat with your friends and partners for hours, not to mention that it’s a great opportunity to meet and gain new friends.
It provides great views of nature
One benefit of golf is that it allows you to breathe in fresh air, as playing the sport requires you to be outside, in areas mostly surrounded by trees. This is beneficial to health as fresh air is full of negative ions which refresh your body, providing a natural lift. Playing golf on beautifully manicured greenery set in nature’s breathtaking views can give one a sense of peace and relaxation.
So you want to beat stress? Get away from the noise, noise, traffic and pollution, and look for golf courses located in the country’s most beautiful surroundings like the Clark SunValley Golf & Resorts – a project of the Donggwang Clark Corporation (DCC), the Philippine subsidiary of the SunValley Group of South Korea.
Nestled atop rolling mountains right beside the historic Sacobia River with a majestic view of Mount Pinatubo, the Clark SunValley Golf & Resorts is also located at an altitude of 370m above sea level, giving golfers great views of nature. Its location provides the right amount of hazards and a fair share of windy conditions which make each hole challenging, yet fun and enjoyable.
“There are still too many women who are unaware of how great golf is as a sport. And this is what we want to communicate to Filipino women, that in the Clark SunValley Golf & Resorts, we are providing them a unique leisure experience that will make each game of golf more valuable and entertaining than anywhere else,” said managing director Tug ho Rhewy of the SunValley Group of South Korea.
Once completed, the Clark SunValley Golf & Resorts will also feature residential villas, a commercial mall, international school, waterpark, casino and a luxury five-star international hotel, making it a world-class recreational village.
DCC is currently offering one-time membership fee good for two persons, with no green fees, monthly and annual fees.
