Golf tournaments are a great way to raise money. They are a fun and relatively easy way to get people involved in a cause to raise much-needed funds and awareness.  Pulliam Pools is proud to announce our 10th Annual Promotional Golf Tournament helping to bring awareness to the Careity Foundation and their Men's Initiative. Careity Men's Initiative has the goal of saving men's lives through early cancer detection.

Health benefits are also a great consequence of playing golf. Did you know it is possible to get a great workout while playing golf if you play it on foot and you carry your golf bag as you walk the course?  Walking eighteen holes and carrying your bag can burn as much as 1,500 to 2,000 calories while strengthening core muscles and your heart. Being outdoors in natural sunlight also contributes to your well being. Soaking up the sunlight helps with your Vitamin D levels and it’s great for your mind.

Playing golf offers a low-impact activity in the sense that one walks on soft surfaces and decreases the risk of injury. Golf can improve your sleep, reduce stress and offer a strong blood supply for brain function and stimulation

Golf has the unique ability to bring people of all ages and abilities together. It is perfect for building long lasting relationships with family, friends, work colleagues, and potential business leads. Using golf for business allows you to connect with others because there is plenty of time to talk between holes or in the clubhouse.

After a long day on the golf course, you can head home and soak in your hot tub or cool off in your pool with your family.
