The number of calories you burn playing golf depends on a number of factors, including your weight, the intensity of your play, and whether you walk or ride in a cart.
A 180-pound person walking and carrying their clubs can burn about 600 calories per hour.
A 180-pound person riding in a cart can burn about 300 calories per hour.
The more holes you play, the more calories you will burn.
A 180-pound person playing 18 holes of golf can burn about 1,200 calories if they walk and carry their clubs.
If you play golf in a hilly area, you will burn more calories than if you play on a flat course.
If you swing your clubs hard, you will burn more calories than if you swing them slowly.
If you walk briskly between shots, you will burn more calories than if you walk slowly.
If you drink alcoholic beverages during your round, you will burn fewer calories.
The weather can also affect the number of calories you burn. Playing in hot weather will make you sweat more and burn more calories.
