As the summer season of golf winds down, and the crisp, cool air of autumn begins to arrive in Minnesota, some local golfers mistakenly start thinking about other things (school, football, winter?) rather than the game. Yet fall is actually the perfect time to play golf in Minnesota, and there are plenty of reasons why. Here are five things we love about fall golf in Minnesota.
1. Course Conditions
Every fall, the golf courses of Minnesota reach their peak in terms of conditioning, and it must be experienced. The weather provides great growing conditions and the sun won’t bake out any areas, so the fairways and greens will be as good you will find anywhere. The only concern will be your ability to hit them in regulation.
2. Comfortable Temperatures
Minnesota is home to hot, humid summers, but those temps are gone with the turning of the season. Fall temperatures are cool, but not cold, and it’s the perfect time for a round that won’t overheat you. You want to be outdoors in the fall, just to experience the temperate climate and the wonderful autumnal smells.
