late twilight

11 posts in this topic

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. Regards Mailman

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.

    • Here in USA, the KBS Tour S-flex shafts go for about $27 each new. If you get AP2 714 model, a 4-PW (?) reshaft would require $189 + tax to get shafts. Add $15 per club for shaft swap, and $10 per for new grips, and it's about $365 + tax. The KBS Tour stiff would be a few grams lighter and slightly stiffer than the S300 which often come as stock for the AP2. OTH is on target, consider this too.
    • I had a big long post going and lost it. The game of golf has only one set of rules per continent. The equipment used is well defined as far as legal, or illegal. The other sports you mentioned are dealing more with different age groups, physical sizes, and skill levels. Sure, golf has players of all ages, sizes, and skill levels too. Golf also has one set of rules, and one playing field with differences in length. Difference is baseball has tee ball. Football has different leagues based on age groups, and it's the same  for basketball. These sports cater to the needs of their players based on their age groups, and skill levels. This also includes the playing fields, and equipment they use. So in that respect I have no problem with what other sports are doing. 
    • 2/23: Feeling encouraged. I think I've got the (worse than usual) weight-shift/head movement mystery solved, or at least "identified" with a much better understanding of it (and a confirmation that it's always been there ). Getting better at the process I think...(1) noticing a problem but not knowing the why, (2) Slowing down and checking keys 1-3, and (3) "going back to my first lesson" so to speak by reviewing old video and my swing posts, and slowly "backing up" from the problem to try and identify the (chain of) cause(s). Today's practice: 10 minutes of good ol' wall drill, with original focus of getting my right hip away from the wall but with added attention paid to my upper body and (actually getting some) secondary axis tilt. Several slow and medium-speed reps of this pausing for feel and thinking about and practicing how I'd transition into the downswing. Then 6-8 minutes outside... Just two "reps" of 3-4 minutes slow-motion back- and downswings (hip, axis tilt, weight shift (and resulting proper better club path ) and then an easy-swing full shot with my 56o. So I only hit two shots and both were perfect, high draws.
    • Cobra Bio Cell + set at 15 degrees I am very confident with this club.  My 4 iron goes about 190 and my 3h goes 200-210.  Anything more than that (in the 220-230 range) is this club.  I have hit some very accurate shots with it and feel very comfortable with it.  In the first round this season, I have plopped one from 225 out within 15 feet from the pin.  I may change my driver this year but I get the feeling this club along with my hybrid (also a Bio Cell +) will be around for a long time
    • Make sure you bring your current driver with you and make sure u hit it on the launch monitor there.  You will want to be able to compare what it says for your current driver with what they fit u for.  All u want to see is the improvement of the new over the old.  Don't dwell on the distance the monitor says....just the improvment.
