It can also increase brain sensitivity for the hormones serotonin and norepinephrine, which relieve feelings of depression. Additionally, exercise can increase the production of endorphins, which are known to help produce positive feelings and reduce the perception of pain. Furthermore, exercise has been shown to reduce symptoms in people suffering from anxiety. It can also help them be more aware of their mental state and practice distraction from their fears.

You are able to cross the bridge as soon as the group ahead of your tee time is off the #1 tee box. Once the group ahead of your tee time is on the 2nd tee box your group is now welcome to tee off. We recommend for your safety that everyone stands to the left of the #2 tee box. This is helping us maintain a pace of play of 2 hours and 30 minutes or less per group throughout the day. As we go into peak season we have a large number of golfers on the tee sheet. The 2 hour and 30 minute pace allows each group approximately 8 minutes per hole with 8 minute intervals per tee time. Our marshal program will assist the golf operation in maintaining this pace throughout the season. Groups that are behind pace will be given a friendly reminder from the marshal to catch up to pace within two to three holes. Groups that are unable to catch up to pace will be kindly asked to skip to the point where they should 11 also be visible on the tee sheet at that time. Pace of Play 2 hours and 30 minutes or less
