What Is Your Favorite Time To Tee-it-up?

45 posts in this topic

Early in the morning, 7:30 or 8:00. Then, I have the rest of the day to do my "Honey-do" list.

Also, in the fall and early spring, for us Northern golfers, I like to tee-it-up right after the frost warning is lifted.

Between 10.00 & 11.00, Mon. through Thursday. If the Mrs. has to work on a Saturday, she gets a Comp. day off during the week. She gets to sleep a little late, we go out for Breakfast, and usually have a crock pot going for dinner. That's our golf day's  together, usually ruined by little white balls.

If it's just with the guy's though, I let them decide, it's usually earlier. When She's in the cart with me, games usually are "a date day" even when we play with the boy's. When I'm out the the guy's only, I am a little more serious and focused.

We all avoid Friday and weekends at all costs.

The gang and I are lucky, that we have flexibility at our jobs to make this happen.

I like afternoons: no dew, lower rates, fewer golfers.

If price were no object - first light; however, price is an object, and I try to play between noon and 1:30 - always looking for the Hot Deal on golfnow.    Playing a $40 course today at 1:30 PM for $9 !!

On Saturdays, 8AM is my time and has been for years - like it better when we start on the back 9 so we see a cart girl within the first few holes.

If I get out on a Friday, I prefer before noon - the big money noon game tends to move a little slow and playing through 4 or 5 groups means rushing on those holes.

Beer:30.  I like afternoons as well.  On weekends, I get all my chores done first.

On weekends at the local course, if I'm going out alone, first out of the box. The guys at the course let me take off before they open and let me pay at the turn.

If my buddies and I are traveling to farther course, we leave early enough to get as early a tee time as we can, since we always play 36 when we travel to a course. We all play fast and hate to get held up.

Weekdays at the local course, not much choice. After work and hope its not too crowded. I like these the least, especially spring and fall when you can barely get 9 in before dark if you get held up by slow play. Summer is OK when I can get 18 in.

My Sunday foursome usually plays a 11:30am tee time.  I like it because I can have breakfast with the wife, play 18, then have plenty of time to make dinner and relax before I have to go to bed (I work early mornings).  If I get a chance to play during the week I like between 3:30pm and 4:00pm.  I can get in 9 and still have time for dinner and relaxing before bed.

Sunrise! First out! I Like having an empty course to bomb round! We can walk round in 2.1/2 hrs! Tee off after 9am it takes 4 hrs min! I'm a busy family man, I can't spend all saturday on the course, but if I do it's because I go round twice! During the week it's 4pm, just before people finish work, again so we can bomb round without hold ups! We've played through people on carts before now, we don't **** about, I'm there for a good time... Not a long time!

Evenings. I like to finish as the light is fading. Course is quiet - and I'm not a morning person.

I would say around 10AM. Ofcourse it would be great to get up and be the first group out but my back just wont cooperate that early in the AM. By 10-ish I've been out of bed long enough for it not to be a problem.

My favorite is daylight to dark. At my old club I used to have a regular group in the morning where we usually got in two rounds, another group at noon for 18 holes, and another group until dark for another couple of rounds.

Now it's usually just 36 holes starting at 8:00.

I like to start between noon and 2 PM to catch the nicest part of the day.

I like to play early. Love it when I'm among the first out and finish in 2 1/2 or less.  ...but I hate waking up for it.

Checking tee times the night before, I like to tee off about 45 minutes after the early morning rush. Usually several holes ahead are open, and the group can get around in less than 4 hours.

I like to play in the afternoon, if I can, during the week. I try to play every Thursday in season, teeing off  around 3:00-3:30 PM. There is nothing like being on a golf course on a summer evening with a few good friends in a friendly match.

    • He's not denying anyone if he takes it or not. The list of invitations is pretty well established, and as a former champ, he essentially has a lifetime invitation. The field expands or shrinks based on who accepts the invitations. There are no "spots" and they won't invite someone else if Tiger doesn't take his invitation.
    • Some questions to kick off the run-up to and playing of the 2017 Masters Toonamint at Augusta National: Is Jordan Spieth the favorite to win after his collapse last year? Is it the best story in golf? If not Jordan, how about Dustin Johnson? Will Tiger Woods make the cut? Will he play? Will he surprise everyone (likely including himself at this point) and finish in the top ten? If he skips this tournament, will this be the last time anyone really cares? Last year's winner Danny Willett… does he contend again, or will his drop in play (evident at the Ryder Cup) continue? Ask any other questions you may have, and answer them, too.
    • One philosophy has pervaded my life. It's simple really, but doesn't seem to be easy to live with: "There has to be a better way." When I came to golf eight months ago, I applied this principle, as I had to everything I've ever done. Can this be better? Not just for me, but for others. I want to enjoy golf, and I want everyone to enjoy the game, even if they disagree with me or don't need any better. Recently I have been playing rounds of what some of us are calling Play 200. Each hole, I begin at the 200 yard mark (shorter par 3's excepted, of course). I start every hole from 200 yards from the green according to my Garmin GPS watch. Because I can't reach the green in one shot, I have to plan what club I'm going to hit, where I want to land it, from how far out I want to be to hit my second shot into the green. Yesterday, I shot 6 over for nine holes. It was fun. By eliminating the tee shot, I also cut my nine holes down to less than an hour and a half. I played a few holes with two other guys, so that slows it down. They didn't mind, after they understood what I'm doing. I'm practicing. I spent a hour on the range practicing my full swing. I spent a half hour chipping and putting. Then I played nine holes, (after 3 o'clock it's only $10), and was home in time to fix my wife dinner when she got home from work. That's what I call a great golf day. I left the course happy about how I spent my day. My driver is not reliable. My three wood isn't either. Even if it was, I would still keep playing from 200. Some say, "That's not golf!", but if you take the driver out of the bag, is it still golf? If you tee off with an iron every hole, the game has changed. If you "move up," to what? is it still golf? Yes. All of that is golf. So why not do something that works, that takes over half of the frustration out of the game? Why not try something that makes the game more fun, esp if you are over 100 avg.?   Thank you for the folks who have written in support. I know this is a place where people who push the envelope are not popular. I have run into this in many places where the status quo is well-protected. I push the boundaries. I think to myself, "How can this be better," and I work on it. This might be a way to get people to stay playing golf, when they might otherwise give it up. Golf is hard. For more than half of those who try it, it's too hard. They give up. This is way outside the box, but if you think that a without a driver, the game isn't the same, either. It's all golf. Once I can hit my driver, I'll be back on the tee box. Where the fun is one stroke more. Best wishes. Enjoy the process. Think outside the box.
    • I work at a Stations casino. Ours is a second tier house, not a break-in joint. And everything you said is true about 1999. After 2008, it is decidedly NOT true. Only the Wynn dealers have any chance of getting close to a hundred K a year. The vast majority are still making 30% less than 2006, or even less. We make $18 an hour in our casino. All of us. Even the lousy dealers. I've been doing this five years. I have been in Vegas for eleven. You have great insight, for someone who doesn't know. Today I begin forty hours a week, after working 24 hours a week for the last three years. It took THREE YEARS to gain full-time employment in my industry. I took home $25,852.65 last year. My wife does not have health insurance where she works. For the first time in several years, she'll see a doctor. Golf is expensive. Lessons are expensive. Disrespect is cheap. Esp here.
    • Good post. One slight correction is the split in his MP 29 & 14 was between the 4 and 5 iron rather than between the 3 and 4. An interesting side note...his Cobra driver was 43.625" and his 5 iron was 37.75" which used to be pretty standard at the time, but is short compared to most modern specs.
