late twilight

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

I like to play golf during late twilight for $22. Starts at 5pm. Question is, it doesn't get dark after 9pm around 9:20pm is when you can't see but It seems like everyone leaves before 8:20pm. I don't want to  be the only guy staying up till 9pm. Do you think I shouldn't care even if I'm the only car in the parking lot? Last two times I finished around 8:30pm I was the last car and it was still bright! I asked what time they closed and he said "whenever it gets dark..... well it gets dark AFTER 9pm. I enjoy playing sunset so I want to play till 9pm :D

I love playing in the evenings because the course feels like it's my own private property :)

I say play until you are done and enjoy your time on the course.

That is when the course is the most peaceful to me.  It beats the early morning time because you don't have to worry about dew and frost.

I also prefer to play late. I am routinely the last car in the lot.

Ask the guys in th cart barn if they are waiting on you. Many times they are still cleaning the carts or sometimes sharpening the mower blades and they don't care, particularly if you're a walker.

I'm often there late too. It beats the Florida heat.

Good point.  My regular course does not store the carts in a barn.  They have them all parked in front of the shop and they run a cable through all of them.  I could see them getting upset if I am the only reason they have to hang around.  If I was walking though, I think they would just leave anyway.

we play Thursday evenings, the one thing that pisses me off is they pick up the flags at 8 and the sun has not set still bright and there are several groups on the course.

Unless you are worried about getting mugged in the empty parking lot, so long as the course says they are open I don't see the problem.

I used to play in the evening a lot, but haven't for a few years. That one hole where'd I'd inevitably be looking straight into the setting sun always annoyed me.

You are fortunate.  @Gilberg plays at a course that is pretty much dark or dusklike all the time.

 


 

Yes, this is basically a great idea.  I used to play alone all the time.  But I never would now, especialy if it was like a bacelor party or my birthday.  The course I play at is pretty much dark or dusklike all the time, and it is very uncomortable because right behind the parking lot is a huge graveyard.  I don't believe in that stuff, but one night when I was playing with myself I swear to you that I saw some type of phantasm or disembodied spirit.


 

 

 

Sorry for the poor quote.  I do not know how to pull a quote from a different thread.

They can't leave cause it's gated parking lot.  Someone has to lock the gate after I leave.
