Sure: Golf is only one of many sports that would improve coordination. Other more active sports are much better suited for that. Those include baseball, football, basketball, soccer, raquetball, tennis, handball, dance, gymnastics, and many moore. It is important to keep your eye on the ball in golf when swinging the golf club and facing where you are aiming. Practice really makes a difference.

Stretch: Before beginning any physical activity stretching and conditioning exercises are recommended. You'll want to do some easy stretching movements - particularly of the arms and legs for these two sports. Also, start slow and work your way up to an increased level of activity. It would probably be beneficial to ask advice on warm-ups and conditioning from whoever is teaching you the new sport as well.

A reason 2 see a Dr: I don't mean to be trite, but your symptoms sound significant enough that you should see a doctor. Loss of coordination could be due to some type of neurologic problem. You could be anemic, your thyroid could be abnormal. Too many items to list. Do yourself a favor and see a physician.
