September Poll Question: What’s your favorite golf trip sideshow?

I've not gone as far as to start a countdown clock until the next golf trip, but it's real possibility.

As Labor Day has come and gone, taking the best parts of summer with it into the rear-view mirror, I already find myself periodically daydreaming about, scheming, and planning next year’s Guys’ Golf Trip.

Yes, next year is still a long way off.  I mean, sure, there’s an entire college football season, college basketball season, and half a hockey season between now then.

Nonetheless, I can’t help but look forward to spending a couple of days with my closest friends, on the golf course, far from the worries and responsibilities of home.

The Wife and I are expecting our first child this December, so I realize everything is going to change between now and next spring.

But with so much change on the horizon, there’s a comfort in knowing that on a certain date, at a certain golf course, I will be in the company of friends, and we’ll all be 25 again.

Unfortunately, our legs and backs won’t be 25 years old again.  So, as much as I think we’d all enjoy playing 54 holes a day, reality dictates that we should probably come up with something else to do.

The eternal debate: what to do with those hours each day that aren't spent on the golf course?

Which brings me to the subject of this week’s poll question.  When you’re on a Golf Trip, what is your favorite non-golf activity to schedule into the down time?

I have some friends that swear by partnering a golf trip with the opportunity to do some hunting or fishing, be it in the mountains and lakes, or chartering a half-day fishing boat for the open water.

Some guys are foodies and have to include a fancy restaurant or two on a golf trip, while yet others are perfectly content to crawl the local pub scene after the Sun goes down.

So, Dear Readers, please take a second and let me know your favorite non-golf activity that you’ve made part of your buddies’ golf trip.

    Congrats on having a baby!!! Everything is going to change, but for the better. My baby has left the nest and that changed our lives as well. Life is all about changes and you have a great attitude to embrace them. Great question by the way, I picked golf tournament, but any sporting event would be awesome.

    Cheers
