….and I'm curious as to how many Sand Trap guys/gals do this. I do it at least a few time a year. Hopefully have a beer when I'm done. These are usually some of my favorite rounds of the year.😁

Cleveland Wedges (gap and 60)

If you mean either no-show to work or lie about where you are, the answer is no. I work in a small business with family, so there isn't any getting away with that kind of thing. On the other hand, it makes things very flexible once we get into our slower parts of the year.

I'll often take a day or afternoon off in the summer and head to the course. Back in the old days, when I could hop on Kittyhawk anytime I wanted, I'd head out early on a slow day and play nine holes. Used to get a lot of weekends started early that way.

Despite how easy it would be this time of year to break away and play a quick nine because I work at a golf course, I wouldn’t play hooky. That’s just not me. Even if I wanted to, members live all over the course, so all it takes is one phone call to the golf shop and I’m in trouble.

If I wanted to play golf on a day I work during the summer, I could either get one of the first tee times of the day and close, or I could ask to open (usually a 7-2 shift) and play after I get off. Usually I’ll do the latter because it gives me something to look forward to after work.

But I wouldn’t play hooky to play golf under any circumstances. It’s just way too easy to get caught.

Have I used a "sick day" to play a round sure. My employer gives me 3 weeks of sick pay and 1 week of vacation so its common to use sick days for anything but the major thing is, have my work covered. If I take a day off and other people have to cover for me then its frowned upon, have it covered, no problem. Come on, I'm a 45 min boat ride from Kapalua, of course I do.

@Bucki1968  Hey, it’s me your boss!  I wasn’t aware you were on TheSandTrap as well.  Let’s meet tomorrow.

Haha.  To answer your question though, no.  I just take time off, or knock off early here and there.  There is an event I skipped one time to golf though, so I have played hooky in a sense to golf before.

Technically, I am like you and just took the afternoon off so I'm good. Actually I might do it again tomorrow!👍

I probably take off 6-7 days a year to play golf, especially when the weather starts to heat up in the spring. I actually just took this past Tuesday off and played. Doing the same thing next Thursday. I am getting ready to change jobs, and I am trying to burn a few sick days before I lose them.

My new job pays you each year for your unused leave, so going forward I will have to make a tough decision, golf or money.
