Falling Into Golf

Cameron Burechails

There are many advantages to playing golf in the fall. The colours are beginning to change and the leaves are starting to fall. So too are the green fees at most of our local clubs. Tee times are also easier to make as traffic is down on most courses.

Fall rates are in effect until the end of the season, which means that you can play a round of golf at a fraction of the cost that you paid in the summer months. Many clubs that offer memberships are extending complimentary rounds for everyone that purchases a membership for 2021.

If you like to play early in the morning, make sure to check weather conditions as there may be frost delays that can push back tee times. Conversely, if you are going to play a round after work, be aware of when the sun will set so that you can finish your round.

Most golf stores and pro shops are having sales on equipment, clothing, and accessories at this time of year. There are some great deals on 2020 equipment and clothing lines.

The fall is also a great time to brush up on your golf game. A lesson by a qualified instructor can help you to finally break 80, 90, or 100. A late season tune up can also help you improve both your ball striking and confidence before the 2021 season begins.

If there is a course that you have been meaning to play all season but have not had the time, then perhaps September or October will be your months to play them. A tee off time is just a phone call away. To get information on local courses call the Georgian Triangle Tourist Association at 705-445-7722 or visit their website at www.visitsouthgeorgianbay.ca
