Mini-golf is a really fun activity that you can enjoy with family or friends of all ages – it brings people together in a way that includes everyone. It’s a small journey that you embark on together, at least for the length of the course.
A mini-golf session benefits you because it’s fun – but is mini-golf a meaningful source of exercise? Are you getting a workout while mini-golfing?
Is Mini-Golf Exercise?
Yes! Mini-golf is a form of cardiovascular exercise. Swinging the club works out major muscle groups and requires careful coordination. Squatting works out several muscle groups, and walking from hole to hole keeps your heart rate up.
It’s not an intense workout. You are never going to get the results from mini-golf that you get from CrossFit or ocean kayaking. However, it is a healthy way to get your blood moving and your heart rate up, and it has the benefit of being accessible to children and seniors, too.
The idea that mini-golf is not a form of exercise is wrong. According to smallcountry.com, you can burn 300 calories in a game of mini-golf.
