Golf is an outdoor sport than can have a myriad of health benefits by simply teeing it up. However, if you’re looking for a few good reasons why you should be walking more and riding less, here are four great ones.

First and foremost, walking helps your body to stay loose and warm between shots. Second, you’re saving some money on cart fees. Third, you can enjoy more interaction with more of your playing partners.

And fourth, walking only boosts the health benefits that playing golf provides, including burning about 1,400 calories per 18 holes versus around 800 when riding, according to The New York Times.
