What snacks do you pack for a walking round of 18 holes ?


Recommended Posts

I've started to get into a habit or always bunching on little snacks so it doesn't feel like I'm eating  a meal at the turn and be "full". Trying to keep the same level of energy throughout the run. 

 

I've liked grabbing a bag or some protein oat bits and mixed nuts bag that i'll just casually eat when we're waiting for group in front (our tournament golf lasts 5+ hours so a lot of waiting).

Water during the round (electrolytes if it's hot out), protein / granola bar, and maybe some mixed nuts or trail mix.

 

Best thing to do it keep it light. I definitely avoid getting anything too filling at any point before or during the round. My rounds are rarely over 4 hours so I don't ever feel the need to have a "meal" (hot dog, sandwich, or etc.) during play.

For me, I eat a high carb meal before the round and drink water during.  I don't really snack mid round.

Chilli dog and beers at the turn.  Not the best for my game, but sure make the back nine fun!

I'm in the "eat before the round" crowd, for the most part. 

 

On course, I always have some nuts, granola, and/or dried fruit in the bag, if I need it.

 

Every now and again, I do like to pick up a chicken salad sandwich at the turn.

Sandwich right before I tee off

2 - 3  gatorades

1 - 2 sodas

1 water

2 to 3 Gu (energy packets)

 

Our course is 8.5 miles walking.  In 90 to 92 degrees and 70% humidity, you have to eat and drink.

 

Once in a while we'll have a shot of whiskey on the 10th tee and one again on the 12th.

Generally just water and some electrolytes. I very rarely feel the need to eat during a round and I don't find it impacts performance at all.

In the current Texas heat, I have started taking a ziplock bag full of cut up watermelon.  Other snacks are some Kind mini nut bars.  My old standby was cheese peanut butter crackers. And lots of water on top of all of that.

I have a violent weakness for a hot dog at the turn.  I won't really eat them much otherwise, but in the context of a golfing environment it just feels like a part of the game to me, like getting a hot dog at a baseball game.  While I wouldn't claim they're healthy, they do have the basics you need to power through a long/slow round: protein, carbs, and salt.  

 

I'll never be ashamed of a hot dog at the turn.  Life's too short.

 

Other than that, I'm a big fan of Clif bars.  They're fairly cheap, extremely packable, calorie dense, and have just about everything you need if you really need something to get you through a round without filling you up.  They're also easy to eat while on the go/walking.

Peanut Butter pretzels from Costco are a go-to for me if I'm packing snacks

Huge thermos of electrolyte water.  Beef jerky.

I buy cookies and sandwich at the turn. 

 

I need to improve this, somehow ?

Try this instead.

 

One to two scoops of protein powder, a cup of oats, one tbsp of peanut butter or EVOO, a little bit of milk or milk substitute(almond, rice, flax, etc.)and a banana or berries.  Blend away then throw in a shaker cup.  Also have a separate electrolyte drink with a cup of coffee or caffeine powder.  This is what I do and it helps sustain energy throughout the round.  The nice thing is that it also keeps the nasty critters from trying to tear open your golf bag.

A banana and either a Clif bar or a protein bar; occasionally I’ll substitute a peanut butter and honey sandwich for the Clif bar. LOTS of water, and a Nuum electrolyte tab in every other fill up of my Yeti.  No caffeine, no Gatorade; nothing with a lot of sugar or salt, and nothing heavy like a hot dog at the turn.  
 

A big, high protein breakfast gets rid of a lot of need for more than snacking during a round.

I've gotten into the habit of taking a couple of pieces of fruit. Usually one or two apples or a couple of peaches when they're in season. Always start off with a couple of Powerade Zero's in the bag and grab a couple waters throughout the round. I rarely use a cart anymore (Love my Alpahard V2). My Caddytek has a nice little cooler pouch that fits three drinks comfortably.

Your protein bar is loaded with sugar.
