How playing golf benefits your mind and body

Golf is a sport that has evolved over centuries. Over the years, advancements in technology and research have helped shape the game into what it is today. Like the game itself, there’s been a significant change of view when it comes to the health benefits of golf. Thanks to today's research, we know that golf is both mentally and physically stimulating, and, if played correctly, can benefit your overall health. We're exploring how golf can benefit your mind and body. Weight loss Consider ditching the golf cart the next time you play golf. Walking an 18-round course is easily more than 10,000 steps, which is considered the target number of daily steps for weight loss. Carrying your bag, swinging clubs and walking the course all stimulates your body and can help you shed a few pound in a way that doesn't necessarily feel like exercise. When you're playing at the Harmony Golf Preserve, walking around the course is a treat. Our master-planned community is home to a conservation area, which backs right up to our golf course. The views are incredible! It’s a brain workout, too As much of a workout as golf can be for your body, it is equally as good for you brain.

Golf refresh: What’s new at the Harmony Golf Preserve

Since Harmony’s inception, the Harmony Golf Preserve has been an integral part of the community. From hosting parties to a friendly game with neighbors, the Golf Preserve provides a wonderful backdrop for the residents of Harmony. This summer, the Golf Preserve closed its doors to make improvements on the course that will lead to better play for residents and visitors alike. Among these improvements – led by golf architect Mike Dasher – are major bunker renovations and the installation of new, state-of-the-art TifEagle greens. Starwood Land Ventures invested almost $1 million in the course. Many of the bunkers have been reconfigured, and some of the greens redesigned and renovated. The goals was to keep the course in excellent condition for new residents and visitors who enjoy playing golf at Harmony. According to Dasher, pre-renovation, there were probably 60 bunkers in play and the renovation eliminated 20-25 and improved others to allow for more effective maintenance and greater aesthetics. These improvements only added to the charm of Harmony’s golf course. The Harmony Golf Preserve is a par-72, 7,417-yard championship course that was designed by former PGA Tour stars Johnny Miller and Fredrick Bliss. The Golf Preserve is the only Johnny Miller Signature course in the Central Florida area. That’s not all there is to boast about, though – the course also encompasses world-class practice facilities, an 18,000-square-foot clubhouse and a restaurant, Champions Grill.
