Early morning golf is only beaten by late evening golf, especially on a Friday.
Could not resist posting this pic. A few of us got the first tee time this morning at a local course...teed off at 6:37 AM....sunrise was at 6:36 so when we got out into the first fairway, this was the scene behind us looking back to the pro shop.
We played efficiently and never saw anyone else until we were finished.....18 holes in 3 hours 15 minutes..... I LOVE morning golf!! /taunt.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':taunt:' />
Thats awesome! I tend to play afternoons most of the time, but the occasional early morning round is a nice change of pace for me.
I play the local course near my house and know the course manager. A few years ago, he told me to just stop in after I’m done and pay. I started playing just as the sun is coming up and I walk, sometimes as early as 5:30. When I play as a single, I’m done in under 3 hours and home for breakfast before the rest of the family is up. It is so relaxing. Like a previous poster said though, the course is usually wet, so after a few wet footed rounds, I got waterproof shoes. The other issue I run into is foggy mornings, so my first couple shots need to be straight. If anyone in Northwest New Jersey wants to play, I’d alway welcome a partner.
I also play near Charleston during the summer for a week or two and it’s best to get out before the heat and humidity rear their ugly heads.
I like it. I also like fishing...so I'm a morning guy. My only issue now is that my body (knees mainly) aren't ready to go early in the mornings...
I'm the odd man out I guess... I like being up early and getting work done before the emails start flowing in--Many days I can get a solid 9 hours of work done by mid-afternoon having started before 6. That allows me to play in the afternoon--when I prefer to play.
I simply cannot do anything active early in the morning. I wake up dehydrated and stiff and no matter what I do... It takes me what feels like forever to get ready to go.
There is something magical about early morning golf. It is like walking out on new fallen snow.
A muggy 41° and breezy. Here I come morning golf
3 hours 15 minutes.. Seems rushed I'm not a morning person either. Give me a leisurely 4.5 hour round mid afternoon, followed by a beer and a burger
