    I am a guy in his 30s and I have a government job with lots of flex time and vacation.

    I also have no kids and my wife is an avid golfer.

    I usually get out 5-6 days per week. I'm teeing off by 3-4 during the week with no trouble.

    IUOE journeyman here. When I worked swing/2nd shift I could golf every day in the morning and still have a few hrs before work for other things.

    On day shift, if working 5-8’s can golf in afternoons. Off at 1430. If working 4-10’s it’s a little tougher in the winter with a 1630 off time but can still do 3x/week.

    It’s getting dark up here in the winter between 1630-1730 but 9 holes with a cart is doable.

    OT screws it up a bit but pays for Pebble Beach and Bandon at other times so it’s a wash.

    Daily, or near daily golf, is pretty easy actually. Especially when single with no kids.

    Im working on being self employed and you can golf everyday if you planned it. After a while though, I would trade in couple of single rounds during the week for a couple of rounds with my buddies. Golf is also about sharing the time with your friends and watching them and your self play some great shots.

    I could easily get out a few times a week with my work schedule. My wife would probably not approve though.

    I “retired” at 31. More of a glorified break from work thats lasted almost 4 years now. Though now im working on getting another business fired up and once its got the right people in the right places with the right systems ill start another one and keep repeating till the day they put me in the dirt. I knew that if i didnt take a break sometime i never would. I didnt have 2 nickles to rub together when i started, i worked 100+hours/week for a few years and when i quit i had aqquired quite a nice collection of heavy equipment. Sold my machines and took my retirement early. Figured why not do it when the kids are babies/young and i can still physically move around at a decent speed. Played golf almost every day and while i got pretty good (down around scratch for a bit) it honestly started getting a bit old. Some of the looks people give you too when they ask the stupid old question “what do you do?” And you answer with “well i wake up when ever i feel like it, fool around for a bit then go golfing”. People tend NOT to like that answer for some reason when you are in your early 30s.

    Though bittersweet my “retirement”/WRX days are nearing an end (least a good slow down) now that im starting to ramp stuff back up. Ill still play 2-3x/week but mostly for business related reasons.

    I typicaly sneak in 9 after work a few days a week and then 18 on Saturday and sometimes Sunday. I can't wait for retirement so I can play everyday.

    After back to back 18 hole rounds I find my swing gets lazier. Could definitely alternate full rounds with short game practice and be a happy camper though.

    When I lived in Atlanta I started playing with a group of guys that were retired FDNY or NYPD. They get to retire early and they all had wives that made a lot of money. I also played with a bunch of Georgia Power guys that basically retired, but had wives that made a fortune.

    When I lived in Myrtle Beach, there were a lot of cases of Mr. Mom's or guys that didn't work. Essentially, they and their wife had dreamed about living in a place like Myrtle Beach and the wife would find a good job at a bank and the husband couldn't find a job because the job market is not that good. So they decided to move to the area anyway and have the wife as the bread winner while the husband stayed home, cleaned the house, made dinner, etc. That wasn't uncommon.

    Then you have the route of being wealthy or downright suspicious means of living. One friend of mine grew up in money and never worked a day in his life and plays golf every day in season. During the winter time, he skis every day.

    Another friend of mine's parents own a chain of liquor stores and gave him a few stores to run. He plays golf in the morning and then hooks up his XBox behind the counter and plays most of the day during 'work.' I also knew a guy in Atlanta that made a fortune off some type of software and retired at 38 years old and played golf almost every day. And one of my best friends growing up playing junior golf used to have his parents pay for virtually anything he wanted and payed for him to play AJGA events cross the country. Nobody ever knew what his parents did for a living and he has never worked a day in his life and we have no idea where he's getting the money. He plays golf every day in the summer in NY and then moves to Florida during the winter and plays golf every day. I'll just say that he's Italian and leave it at that. But seriously, I've known him since I was 12 years old and nobody knows what his parents or himself do for money.

    I have two buddies who play almost every day for most of the year and still have jobs. One owns an insurance company. He doesn't play during the open enrollment time of year, but can play almost every day from mid-January until mid-November. The other is a self employed accountant who only has a few relatively routine and longstanding clients. There are about 3-4 days that he can't play around the end of each quarter or fiscal year. Then he doesn't play very much in March, April, or October (tax day for extension filers). Other than that, he's always playing.
