5 Reasons Why Fall Golf is the Best
Summer is winding down, but don’t pack your golf clubs away just yet! While we love summer for so many outdoor activities, there’s something extra special about fall. And golf is no exception. From perfect weather, lower green fees to optimal course conditions, fall is the perfect time to book your next golf weekend.
#1) Course Conditions
All spring and summer golf maintenance teams have been working hard to get golf courses in optimal playing condition. The fruits of their labor really pay off come fall when greens are fast, and the fairways are manicured and deep green.
#2) Perfect Weather
Summer weather can be hot and humid, especially midday. Fall weather brings a reprieve from the heat. Crisp mornings give way to moderate temps—often in the high 50s to low 70s with no humidity, depending on the month. Of course it’s hard to predict Minnesota weather, but generally speaking, fall weather is predictably mild and perfect for a weekend on the course.
#3) Fall Colors
The Brainerd Lakes is home to some of the most beautiful golf courses in Minnesota. Courses here are cut right out of the Northwoods with rolling fairways, woods, wetlands, and lake views. On the golf course is one of the best places to immerse yourself in autumn’s red, orange, and yellow hues.
#4) Less Crowds
On a busy weekend in the summer, you may find yourself waiting on a slow golf group ahead of you. Or maybe you’re not an avid golfer, and you’re nervous you’re holding up faster groups behind you. You’ll find that during the fall, courses are less crowded with optimal tee times available.
#5) Affordable Pricing
Hand-in-hand with less crowds is lower green fees. As the peak golf season wanes, you’re likely to find savings with lower rates at all area courses as well as stay and play fall package deals at the larger resorts with lodging and golf on-property. Take advantage of the price breaks and get in those last few rounds of golf—you’ll be happy that you did!
