Traveling opens up new worlds. It’s more than just a luxury; it can spark new passions, hobbies, and even new love. In addition, a growing body of research suggests that travel can have significant health benefits for seniors. For example, one study found that older adults who took annual vacations were 32 percent less likely to die over nine years than those who didn’t travel. And another study found that women who vacationed just once every six years were almost eight times more likely to develop depression than those who vacationed twice a year.
One of the most amazingly scenic golf courses that I’ve had the fortune of playing was Ko’Olau Golf Club. The course is located in Kaneohe on the island of Oahu and is set at the base of the Ko’olau Mountain range.
