Tips for Beating the Heat
The dog days of summer have officially arrived! While summer brings longer days, which means more time to spend on the course, the scorching temperatures can really put a damper on your tee time. The good news is that there are all sorts of ways to beat the heat so that you can get the most out of your time on the course.
If your schedule allows it, tee off early so that you can avoid having to golf during the highest temperatures of the day. The earlier you can start, the cooler the temperatures will be. Besides, who could say no to a little early-morning dew?
Sapona’s hours are: Monday: 11:00 AM – 6:30 PM (1st Tee Time 12pm) & Tuesday-Sunday: 7:00 AM – 6:30 PM (1st Tee Time 8am)
Wearing the right clothing is a must when golfing in the summer. Ideally, you want to wear loose, light-colored clothes that are made with moisture-wicking material. You can find moisture-wicking material from top brands such as FJ, Bermuda, Sands and Norman apparel, which we have in our golf shop. Breathable clothes are a must, otherwise when you start to sweat, your clothes will stick to you, which will impact your comfort and your ability to play your best. When hitting the course, make sure you’re wearing long sleeves, loose shorts or pants and a hat. For any skin that is exposed while on the course, be sure to use sunscreen. SPF 50 should be just what you need to protect your skin against sunburn.
Use Cooling Towels & Gels
Just as there is moisture-wicking clothing on the market, you’ll also find cooling products as well. During the summer days on the course, a cooling towel or two is a must. These towels are a great way to wick away sweat, or for placing on the back of your neck, on your upper back, or across your belly to lower your body temperature.
When you aren’t using your cooling towel, make sure it’s stored in a cold area.
Spending hours in the hot, glaring sun almost guarantees that you’re going to lose water, which increases the risk of dehydration. When golfing during the summer months, be sure to drink plenty of fluids during your round. Visit the turn house and pack your cooler with drinks. The turn house has a lot of food and drinks to choose from. Maintaining your electrolyte levels is also important. We also sell Biolyte… it’s called an IV in a bottle. This way you can play your best and make the most of your time on the course.
Then after playing golf go take a dip in the pool and relax. You deserve it. Play hard and then relax.
Pool Hours are … 11:00am – 8:00pm
