It’s the return of the fall season, and once again the Tour has slowed down, but not me! I love fall golf! A few of my favorite golf courses are up in New England. Check out the post and let me know what you think! This year I am going to give a short little fall buyers guide from the Cave to help you get prepared for the cooler months and allow you to get the most of your autumn golf outings!
It can get chilly out there on the green, you’ll want to dress in layers. Outerwear such as the Ping Colorblocking Pullover for men or the Sun Mountain Ladies Second Layer Pullover for the ladies will be a must have in order to stay warm and dry while out on the course! Keep your hands from freezing with the Ray Cook Stormy Weather Winter Golf Gloves! You can also line your pockets with our reusable Heat Wave Hand Warmers. If it’s really cold, warm up with outerwear from Mobile Warming Gear! These clothes come with their own battery packs to keep you warm wherever you go!
And don’t forget your feet! Crisp fall weather can turn into wet weather quickly. So stock up on warm, moisture-wicking socks and waterproof golf shoes. Nothing makes a round of golf more miserable than wet, wrinkly feet. Plus, the more comfortable you are, the better you will play!
Fall Cart Accessories
For those especially brisk days, Check out some of the golf cart heaters we have stocked up at the cave, such as the Heater Craft Golf Cart Heater, and if you couple that with the Greenline Golf Cart Enclosure – which can even be used in below zero temperatures!
Fall Gear Protection
Don’t forget to also protect your gear while you are out on the course. Rain and wind can pop up suddenly you’re out on the course. DrizzleStik Umbrellas are a great way to shield your clubs from the elements. And remember to keep your clubs protected with golf head covers!
Starting in late fall, it’s a good idea to switch from playing white balls to orange or yellow golf balls. The reason being that in the Northern Hemisphere, the sun gets so low in the sky that it can be difficult to see a white ball in the rough due to the glare. A yellow or orange golf ball is easier to see so you’ll be less likely to lose it!
You also might want to switch to a carry bag or stand bag for the fall. Many golf course go to a 90 degree cart rule or forbid golf carts altogether come autumn. It’s a good idea before you go to check with your local course regarding their cart policy. You may end up needing a new golf bag.
And remember to pack a good camera (or a good cell phone camera). Fall is the most beautiful time of year to golf and you’ll want to take some pictures to remember it – and then use those pictures to make your friends jealous.
