After such a hot summer in Central Oregon, the cooler temperatures of fall are so welcome. It can be more enjoyable to play in colder weather, and some players even think it keeps them sharp out on the course.
One of the great benefits of fall golf is that with colder temperatures at night, the course is hardening up. With a harder ground, you’re going to get extra roll on your golf ball. Even further, as the grass growth slows down, you won’t have taller grass to take your shots through. Maybe without taller grass, you’ll even find your ball faster.

Enjoy a couple of lazy rounds of golf before winter weather hits. Some of your best days of golf, could still be heading your way this season. Get out there and enjoy it.
