Golf is a sport that is played with clubs and a small, hard ball on a course that is designed for the game. The objective of golf is to hit the ball into a series of holes on the course with as few strokes as possible. A typical golf course has 18 holes, each of which has a teeing ground, a fairway, and a green with a hole. The player hits the ball from the teeing ground, tries to advance it along the fairway, and eventually tries to hit it into the hole on the green. Golf can be played individually or in teams, and is a popular recreational and competitive sport around the world. It is also a sport that can be enjoyed by people of all ages and skill levels, as there are various courses that offer different levels of difficulty. Golf is often played in beautiful outdoor settings and can provide a relaxing and social experience for players.
Some wellness & Spa resorts have their own 18-hole or 9-hole course. Others have a course nearby. The course could be located right on the coast, in the hills or surrounded by forests. Plus, a round of golf can be just as relaxing as a massage or beauty treatment. And it combines perfectly with detox, Ayurveda or juice fasts for relaxation and exertion. Golf turns a wellbeing Holiday into a good balance of activity and relaxation too.
