Three Things To Keep In Mind Booking Tee Times
As great as it can be for you to get a good tee time set up at any golf course out there, you have to be cautious. There are three crucial things that you have to do in order to get the best out of a tee time.
- When can you actually get to the course?
It is strongly recommended that you get to your course about twenty to thirty minutes before your tee time begins. This added amount of time is needed to ensure that you will confirm that you are there for your tee time.
In some cases you might be able to start your round early. In other cases you might be given access to a driving range or putting surface for a period of time before your tee time begins. Either way, you have to ensure that you are coming out to your course early enough so you can actually get that tee time going.
- How many people are going to be in your group?
The number of people in your group could influence the tee time you can get in. A group with more people will certainly take more time going through a course than a much smaller group, thus requiring you to make sure you book your tee time the right way based on who’s going to be there.
You might have to reserve a tee time early in the day if you have more people. Some golf courses are more receptive to larger crowds of people during the earliest times of the day.
- How long is the course?
You must also think about the length of the course. It takes about three to five hours to go through a full eighteen-hole golf course. That time can also vary based on who shows up with you. Therefore, the length of the course must be factored into your decision as you need to know the approximate time that you will end your golf round as well as when you plan on getting out there.
Be sure to use these pointers when getting a tee time ready. Your plans for getting out to a golf course must be organized based on when you know you are able to get there and who is in your group as well as what the course is like in general. This is all to give you the best possible experience on a course.
