Retirement: Golfing is Good for You!

One of the best ways to avoid boredom and depression in retirement is to participate in several hobbies. If golf is one of your hobbies now, then plan to kick it up a notch in retirement. Research has shown that seniors who participated in at least some group activities are less prone to depression, health problems and live longer lives. So, in addition to playing solo rounds - join a golf league and go to golf clinics or golf tournaments with a friend. 

The International Golf Federation also conducts the amateur team competitions. But, you will not be able to golf in retirement or participate in any of your other hobbies if you have not adequately planned for your retirement. Make sure you have the financial resources to participate in the hobbies you choose. 

Also consider a subscription to the Retirement Intelligence Information Services newsletter, which provides retirement news and investment education for the individual investor. Retirement can be a great time to devote more time to golf and other hobbies as well. Make sure the hobbies you choose are a mixture of solo and group activities. It is also important to include activities with people already in your social network, as well as those who are not. People who plan an active life after retirement tend to be happier, healthier, and live longer than those who have no such plans. So, that is an order, play golf in retirement - it is good for you.
