Golf Health Benefits

Golf is a popular recreational activity for people of all ages, but it can be especially beneficial for those in retirement. Here are some of the health benefits of playing golf in retirement:

  1. Low-impact exercise: Golf is a low-impact activity, which means it places less stress on the joints and muscles compared to high-impact activities like running or jumping. This makes it a good option for those who may have health conditions or injuries that prevent them from participating in more strenuous exercise.
  2. Cardiovascular health: Golf can also provide a moderate level of cardiovascular exercise, as it involves walking long distances and carrying or pushing a golf cart. This can help to improve heart health and reduce the risk of heart disease.
  3. Mental health benefits: Playing golf can also have mental health benefits, as it allows for socialization and can provide a sense of accomplishment and purpose. It can also reduce stress and improve cognitive function.
  4. Flexibility and balance: Golf requires flexibility and balance, as players need to bend and twist to make shots. This can help to improve these physical abilities and reduce the risk of falls.
  5. Vitamin D: Golf is often played outdoors, which means players can get some exposure to vitamin D from the sun. Vitamin D is important for bone health and can help to improve mood and cognitive function.

Overall, playing golf in retirement can provide a variety of physical and mental health benefits. It is a low-impact activity that can provide moderate exercise, improve flexibility and balance, and provide an opportunity for socialization and stress reduction.

Home Staging

Staging a home is the process of preparing a house for sale by making it look attractive, appealing, and welcoming to potential buyers. It is an important step in the process of selling a home, as it can significantly impact the sale price and the length of time it takes to sell the property. Here are some reasons why staging a home is important:
1 Increased appeal: Staging a home can make it more appealing to potential buyers by highlighting the home’s best features and creating a cohesive, stylish look. This can help to generate more interest in the property and potentially lead to a higher sale price.
2 Faster sale: A well-staged home is more likely to sell faster than a poorly staged one. This is because a staged home presents well and gives buyers a clear idea of how the space can be used and furnished.
3 Competitive edge: In a competitive real estate market, staging a home can give it a competitive edge over other properties for sale. It can help a home stand out and attract more attention from buyers.
4 Better photos: Staging a home can also improve the quality of the listing photos, as it can make the space look more attractive and inviting. This can help to generate more interest in the property and potentially lead to more showings.
5 Improved online listing: A well-staged home can also make a more positive impression when viewed online, as it can help the property stand out and look more attractive to potential buyers.
Overall, staging a home is an important step in the process of preparing it for sale. By highlighting the home’s best features and creating a cohesive, stylish look, a well-staged home is more likely to sell faster and for a higher price.

Bassmasters Comes to Lake Griffin and the Harris Chain of Lakes

Lake County to host college bass fishing championship on Harris Chain of Lakes

Leesburg and Lake County are preparing to welcome the Carhartt Bassmaster College Series Championship and participating anglers to the Harris Chain of Lakes.

The championship, which will be held Thursday, Oct. 29 through Saturday, Oct. 31, is expected to draw more than 130 teams of anglers from around the nation.

Lake County is preparing to play host to the Carhartt Bassmaster College Series Championship on the Harris Chain of Lakes.

“On behalf of our great partners at Visit Lake and the City of Leesburg, we are so pleased to welcome the 2020 Carhartt Bassmaster College Team Championship to Lake County,” said Jason Siegel, CEO and president of the Greater Orlando Sports Commission. “Our community is appreciative of the opportunity to host the College Championship for the first time. We look forward to providing a safe and enjoyable atmosphere and are confident that the anglers and their families will have a wonderful experience in Lake County this fall.”

The championship will launch each day at 7:30 a.m., with weigh-in at 3:30 p.m. daily. Launch and weigh-in will take place at Ski Beach at Venetian Gardens in Leesburg. Anglers will be able to fish the entire Harris Chain of Lakes, which includes Lakes Harris, Little Harris, Apopka, Beauclair, Carlton, Dora, Eustis, Griffin and Yale.

Qualifications for the championship are based on team finishes in four college tournaments held around the country. Only one tournament was completed before events were postponed due to COVID-19, with the others being completed earlier this fall. The College Championship tournament will crown the national championship team, as well as the 2020 Bassmaster College Series Team of the Year.

Additionally, anglers on the top four teams will earn a chance to compete for a berth in the 2021 Academy Sports + Outdoors Bassmaster Classic at November’s Carhartt Bassmaster College Series Classic Bracket Challenge on Alabama’s Lay Lake.

“We are thrilled to host the 2020 Bassmaster College Championship,” said Lake County Commissioner Tim Sullivan. “Lake County is the premier destination for visitors to experience ‘Real Florida. Real Close.’ and is home to the best bass fishing lakes in the Southeastern United States.”
