Golf, the deadly game

Every year, there are over 30,000 Emergency Department visits caused by golfing!

Golf cart accidents alone cause over 15,000 injuries per year.  Most golf carts can travel up to 15 mph, but some are modified to travel up to 25 mph.  Rollovers account for 10% of all golf cart accidents.

On average, one golfer a year dies from a lightning strike while on the golf course.

Golf courses are the fifth most common place for people to suffer from sudden cardiac arrest!

There are over 6 documented deaths from being struck in the head by a golf ball.
