Desert Landscape

Hungry?

The desert isn’t the first place people go when they’re looking for sustenance. But deserts aren’t the barren wastelands depicted in films, the Sonora Desert is a veritable buffet.

Sample savory and sweet dishes, voting for your favorite in the People’s Choice poll. While digesting, take a walk through the gardens of the Museum, where you’ll see native plants and wildlife, as well as learn about fibers, foods and medicines that come from the desert. Live music from Beth Daunis Trio, Reno del Mar, Duo Vibrato, and Gabriel Francisco set the mood.

Get Healthy with Golf

Broken ClubAnyone who’s ever picked up a club can tell you that golf is a sport that can break your heart. But while emotional turmoil is often a part of the game, golf is actually a great way to strengthen your mind and body.

golfing romanceThe CDC recommends that adults get at least 2 hours and 30 minutes of cardio vascular exercise per week. They suggest walking as one of the methods to achieving this cardio goal. If you ditch the golf cart and play one round of golf per week, you’ve more than met your requirements.

Golf ValentineThere is an added bonus to going cart-free to a course: carrying your own clubs is great muscle exercise and has been shown to improve balance and increase your metabolism. Golfing regularly can also help you sleep more soundly.

Golfing oldtimersAside from offering you a great way to get in your cardio, golf is also a way to keep your mind healthy. While that may seem like an impossibility when you’re having a bad day on the course, studies have shown that people who golf regularly actually feel happier than those who are more sedentary. As one of the more social sports, golf is also a great way to keep your mood elevated via social interactions.

Live Longer By Playing Golf

SpockLive long and prosper is more than Mr. Spock’s catchphrase – it’s the goal of most people in the world. So how do you live to a ripe old age? Scientists started asking the elderly what they thought the key to longevity was.

The answer? Golf.

Golfing oldtimersJapanese inventor Momofuku Ando credited eating ramen noodles and golfing every day with his long life. He’s not alone. Alice O’Donovan, a 100-year-old Irish woman, recently told The Irish Times that she credited golfing and drinking lots of beer.

golfing romanceWhy is golfing frequently linked to successful aging? The key may be in the game itself. Golf offers all ages a low impact workout with plenty of walking. It also helps you keep your mind active, as you try to figure out your next shot. Many doctors are now recommending golf as an excellent workout option for all ages.
