Going out and seeing maintenance a few holes ahead of you and no footprints in the dew is an awesome sight

We’re early every day, too.  With most of Northern California burning down this summer, the smoke made for the most amazing sunrises I’ve ever seen.  

Had lots of mornings where we were home by 9:00 a.m. before it got crowded and hot. There’s nothing better.

Wow so you tee off at 6 and then play in 2:30 hours i assume?  Anything faster than 2:30 hours I have only done as a single or twosome in 2 separate carts.

I much prefer playing early golf. Only downside is the course is usually wet and some of the staff on some courses just don't seem to know how to stay out of the way.

A super told me that they need their pro shop to adhere to the scheduled tee times and not only that but ensure that a foursome also went out first to make sure the crews had ample time to do their work.  Although a PITA to golfers, grounds crews have to respect their schedule.

we meet about forty five minutes before the round to warm up. practice bucket in the dark.
at T minus fifteen we are heading to the clubhouse to check in and await the sunrise.
glorious.

Where in Chicago is this?  Also the range is open in the complete dark?

Early morning walking are the best rounds. Fresh greens, get home early.

If you asked me what I love most in life I would obviously say family, friends, sports teams, and beer!! But not far down that list is "fresh greens". Nothing like blazing the first trail of the day on the course.

I use to belong at a local club that opened play at 7am in the summer.  They would have my clubs setting on a cart near the number one tee by 6:55.  I could play 18 and be at work by 9:15.  Something special about making those first cart prints across a dew covered course going to your ball.

Nothing better for sure than getting in 18 and the wife and kid are just getting up.  I get to play golf and the wife is happy bc i am home in time to help out with the kid.

Early AM golfer here (Los Angeles).  Right before sunlight is good, gives me a chance to use glow in the dark balls.  Guys behind me love it, as we're the first to break the morning dew on those greens.
