Summer Heat Cramping Your Golf Game?


7/12/17

Stay COOL while you swing! With the official start of Summer underway, we are experiencing record breaking temperatures. Summer heat can be wonderful when you’re laying out on the beach or taking a dip in the pool, but while you are on the golf course it can hinder your swing. Instead of fantasizing about a swim in a cool ice bath or worse, skipping out on your tee-time,
follow our simple steps on how to stay cool on the golf course during this summer season!



Here’s 8 effortless ways to stay COOL while you swing!


1.       Bring extra towels or a specially designed cooling towel Soak your towel in water before booking your tee time for an extra cool off during your round of golf. Placing a cool towel on your neck automatically lowers your body temperature, allowing you to focus on that awesome putt you are about to make.

2.       Stay Hydrated Drinking water is one of the easiest ways to cool down. However, once you feel thirsty your body is automatically telling you it is dehydrated. Having a frozen water bottle to keep you cool during a hot summer day is perfect! Whether you let it melt for a refreshing sip later on or use it an icepack for your cooler, it is an immediate refreshment to cool off with. Gatorade and Powerade are essential during the summer season to refresh and refuel. Make sure to pick up a couple before starting your 18 holes for the perfect pick-me-up on a hot day.  
3.       Bring extra gloves During your sweltering summer days, it is easy for your hands to get a little extra moisture. Missing a shot because of a lose grip is easily prevented with an extra set of gloves. Keep an extra set in your bag and when you finish your first 9 holes, grab the next pair and slide on for a new grip!

4.       Wear light colored clothes We know you’ve been working out in the gym, but leave the tight-fitting clothes at home. Be sure to wear something light and fit or lose during your summer swing practice. Light colors tend to stay cooler in the sun as well. Stay clear of black and you’d be surprised how much your body temperature automatically cools off!

5.       Bring Sunscreen   Sunscreen is filled with Aloe Vera which cools and hydrates your skin! Make sure you load up on the protectant to not only prevent a burn, but to keep cool as well!

6.       Play an early tee time   Starting early keeps you cool in the hot summer sun.  Make your tee time online at www.eastpointe-cc.com!  

7.       Use an umbrella for shade   Whether you want to use the umbrella to protect you against the sun or keep it up for some shade, it helps block out some of the direct heat you can find on the greens.  

8.       There’s nothing cooler than a low score What better way of getting out of the heat faster than keeping a low score during your game? Didn’t get the score you were looking for? Don’t worry we can try again next time. After all, practice makes perfect.
