How to Avoid Golfing Dangers

How to protect yourself on the greenGolf and danger. Those two words rarely go together in the minds of players or spectators. Golf is widely seen as one of the safest sports people can play. After all, what can be dangerous about walking thousands of feet chasing after a ball for an afternoon?

Truth be told, you may not be at high risk of a fracture or concussion during a round of golf, but there are risks involved with the game. Read on to find out how to protect yourself on the green, no matter your age.

Stretch

Like any prolonged physical activity, a good stretch should precede a game of golf. You will be using muscles in your neck, arms, core and legs that you may not be used to using frequently. Stretch your limbs, bend at the waist a few times, and take a couple of practice swings.

Sunscreen

Few people want to wear long sleeves and pants on a beautiful day, but if you don’t, you are at risk for a fairly serious sunburn. Be sure to slather on the sunscreen and reapply it every two hours. Wear a hat that covers the top of your head. A visor will shield your face, but it won’t protect your head from the sun’s rays.

Pay Attention

Don’t get so caught up in your game that you lose track of your surroundings. Many injuries have occurred because someone wandered through someone else’s game or didn’t pay attention when someone yelled out “Fore”. When you aren’t aware of what is going on around you, you are at risk of being struck by a ball or, worse yet, an errant nine iron.

Weather

The weather can do more than ruin your afternoon. Lightning is a very real danger to anyone holding a metal rod in the air. Think about this when the storms begin and you want to get in just one more hole. If you are in the middle of the course, look for the nearest bathroom or designated lightning shelter. Do not stand under the trees.

Golf Carts

Golf carts should only be driven by a licensed driver. Before you get behind the wheel, make sure you know how to operate the cart and what safety features are available to you. Take it slow…you aren’t competing in a Nascar tourney.

Staying safe on the golf course is not a complicated task. A bit of common sense is all that you really need. Follow the tips above and your afternoon will turn out as pleasant as you hope.
