Someone started a thread on this last year, and I really enjoyed it, but I can’t seem to find it. We are officially inside of 49 days to Daylight Savings.

We have endured nearly 2/3rds of the shortest days of the year and I think it’s time to start looking forward to March 7th.

How does your golf life change when the sun doesn’t set until 7pm and later?

    I love twilight golf. Play the course at half price and don’t need to rush to finish

    I really like it when the sun starts coming up earlier. I am an early riser, and like to start as soon as I can see.

    I love spring and summer.

    Prices go down here in Florida because the "snowbirds" head home. The courses are far less crowded. Doesn't take as long to warm up or to play a full round. I can head out after work and easily get 18 in. The ball seems to go further. The roads to get to distant courses are less crowded. The resorts have great stay and play deals.

    I am a member at a local range that is lit and is an amazing practice facility. It fills in for me when the course are too crowded and they cost twice as much. But, like I said, I love spring and summer. Favorite day of the year is June 21 - obvious reasons...

    41 days. For me, there aren’t many things better than cutting out of work an hour early on a Thursday, getting in 9 holes with some friends and then getting home with enough daylight to fire up the grill and play in the yard with the kids. Life is just better with more daylight.
