The Ideal Golf Outing

    Golf Outing

    What is the ideal golfing trip?

    Clearly, it will be different for everybody.

    For some golfers the ideal outing would be going to a major course and getting to play on it, knowing professional golfers had walked and played over these same greens. What golfer would not want to play the course where the Masters or U.S. Open is held?

    Most would kill (figuratively speaking) for the chance. These are courses where legends have played – players
    such as Arnold Palmer and Tiger Woods.

    For others, though, ideal golfing is not so much where they play as what it is like when they play i.e. the weather conditions.

    Some golfers prefer a day with mild temperatures and a light breeze to help keep them cool, while others want a challenge and  will go to the extremes weather-wise. There are those who will play when the temperature hits triple digits or drops well below freezing, just to see how well they play under these extreme circumstances.
    And, there are golfers who will play in the snow and at night. There are some specially designed golf balls created for these golfers. The night players can chase their glow-in-the-dark golf balls all over the course, but need to take a flashlight to prevent running into a tree or some other hazard on the course. For those who play in the snow, fluorescent golf balls were created.

    These brightly colored balls are easy to see against the snow-covered course.

    Either way, golfing in the extreme is a challenge, and not one for the faint of heart, or the poor of play. For golfers who play in extreme heat, they need to remember to bring plenty of water to drink and leave all alcoholic beverages alone.

    Those who play in the cold should have something warm to drink in a thermos to help keep their body temperature up, even if they are walking the course. But, whatever the discomfort and the accommodations they have to make, these people consider these a small price to pay for these  ideal golf outings.
    For most golfers, though, the ideal golf outing is simply the chance to go to their favorite course with a few friends and chase golf balls all over the pasture, just having a good time and not taking the game too seriously. This is the most prevalent type of golfer, and these players can usually be found playing in couples and foursomes.

    They will chide one another  on a bad shot, while complimenting one another on good shots and putts. The final score rarely matters (unless they tend to be serious golfers), as they are on the links to have a good time and get away from the stresses of every day life.

    Oddly enough, there are golfers who prefer to play the game by themselves. The solo golfer will most likely walk the course, getting to know the feel of every tee box, fairway and green with his or her feet. But these golfers are in the minority.
    By and large, golf is a social game. And, though it is a competitive sport, most golfers will tell you that their favorite
    part of the day, is the pints or drafts they share with their buddies on the 19th hole in the Club house at the end of a
    fulfilling round.
