The best season to golf in Minnesota
There is nothing that beats playing golf during the fall in Minnesota. The course conditions are the best you’ll see all season. The trees are putting on an autumnal show that keeps spirits light, no matter how bad the shot. It is arguably the best time of the season to play. Colder temps are coming, but fall golf is too great to resist.
These are playing tips for golfers in fall weather, as recommended by Hazeltine National Golf Club in Chaska Minnesota:
Start with clothing that breathes (the sun can get warm) and doesn’t restrict your swing. Double up with socks – two layers if it is really cold or an extra pair if the course is wet.
• Use a softer ball
Temperatures can certainly affect your golf ball. The colder it gets, the less feel you have. By playing with a softer ball, you can retain some of the feel that you are used to around the greens. You might not hit the ball as far as normal, but you might score by retaining your touch and feel.
Cooler temperatures don’t allow for the ball to travel as far, so if you are in-between clubs on an approach shot, always club up so you can get it there. Also be aware that colder weather will firm up the course, and you will get plenty of roll off of your drive. Just remember this when you are approaching the green – your ball can roll through and off the green.
And finally, look around. The fall colors at Kimball Golf Club are incredible. Take a deep breath of the crisp fall air and remind yourself why you love living here in Minnesota and enjoy your round. It could be your last one for a while.
Golf … The Game for life!
