We tee off at 7:30 tomorrow morning. We normally tee off between 10:00 and 11:00. Hopefully they like it and we can continue it. Nothing beats finishing at 11:30 and having the rest of the day left!

I've been going at 9. I like it. It's not too hot (upper 70's), and by the time we finish it's only upper 80's. I would hate 7:30 though. I don't even schedule classes before 9... lol

Here earlier is always better. I've had the 8:15 tee time for a few months and its nice to get out before the big money groups. We are already sweating to death by the 2nd tee box. I could not imagine playing any later.

I always like to play very early in the morning.  I walk on as a single about 90% of the time and usually I am part of the first five groups.  I like playing early because that means most of the people who play that early are usually a serious golfer and tend to play at a faster pace then your usual 9 o'clock or later groups.  Plus I get done by 10:30 AM and have the rest of the day to enjoy doing other things.

The earlier the tee time, the better. Less chance of hackers on the course and the more likely you will finish your round in 3 hours.

My buddy and I usually play at 7:30, he likes to finish early some he can work on his house. I also prefer the early times when playing by myself. A couple of weeks ago I walked 36, getting too old for that.

Nothing better than an early morning tee time! Tee off around 7am and you're out by 10 or 10:30. Basically it's like waking up at 10:30 and already having 18 holes in.

I caddied today and got the first loop/tee-time of the day at 730am. I have to say, even just caddying I could see how awesome this is. No groups in front, greens roll flawlessly, get done in 3ish hours. I have to try this soon.

Teed off at 8:00 this morning and was home a shortly after 11.  An afternoon tee time would have easily added an hour on the round.  I like being on the course, but can't stand slow play and waiting.  That's why early morning tee time is by far my preference.

Guess it's all relative.  On my home course 8:15 isn't that early - it's already almost 3 hours into the day.  This time of year our first tee time is 5:32, and we are usually well booked from 6:30 on.  I have 8:15 on Tuesday, which gives me time to wake up before I have to think about golf.

I play 9 once or twice a week before work...... Tee it up at 6 AM and get to the office by 8:30. There's nothing better, but I have to prepare the day before, because If I don't get to bed early I play like Crap

Our tee times dont start until 7:30 due to HOA regulations on when the course can start mowing. I've done the 7:30 thing and all that ever happens is us having to fight with the groups behind us.

All weekend tee times are front and back, you are instructed to take 2 hours on your first 9 so there is not a line of 5-6 groups at the turn. Every time someone in a rush starts screaming that you are slowing down the course, you let them play through and get a good laugh as they sit waiting to start their back 9 for a good 45 minutes. When I played public courses I generally tee'd off by 7AM, but there was definitely something wrong with with being a bit wrecked by noon.

Played my 1st 7am Saturday tee time. It was a bit rough the 1st 6 holes since my back was in utter pain. After I got loose it was tolerable and the day went by quickly done by 10:15 or so. Not too bad considering the normal 11 am tee time can take up to 5 hrs on a Saturday. I think I have been adopted into a 4 some now that tees off at 6:45 am on Saturdays. Early Friday sleep time and some advil and stretching before teeing off

I prefer early golf on weekends......teeing off at 10-11am would kill me because it kills the entire day.  I played 36 holes today and was finished by 12:15
