Golf is a great sport for all ages and fitness levels. There is a host of great reasons to play the ancient sport, not only is it great exercise, it’s known to reduce stress, improve your creativity and problem-solving skills and increase your mental capacity. Playing a round or two of golf immerses you into nature, fresh air, and with many animals, birds, and in Ras Al Khaimah, bubble-gum-pink flamingoes. Once hooked, there are many courses for you to choose from globally. Troon has almost 700 courses on the map! You’ll meet many people worldwide as you play and socialise in a like-minded community.
