A friend of mine retired a year ago and moved from occasional golf to full-time golf.He plays six mornings a week at a golf club with other guys (the course is closed on Mondays), and then also plays Saturday and Sunday afternoons with his wife and another couple, for a total of 36 holes each day on weekends.In 2000, he played over 400 rounds of golf.He does this by walking and carrying, so that's 4+ miles per round, which means he walked at least 1600 miles last year playing golf.As you might imagine, his blood pressure, leg strength, and aerobic conditioning (it's a hilly course) have all improved quite a bit, and he lost about 5 inches off his waist (he was already in reasonable condition when he started or it probably would have been more). If he rode in an electric cart, though, there'd have been no real benefit at all, physically.I'm also planning on playing more golf once I RE next year, but 8 rounds a week seems a bit much - almost like having a full-time job. I believe in "moderation in everything - including moderation".bill2975, like arrete, enjoying RE for -12 months now <g>
