The second hole at the Lake of Isles North Course in North Stonington, Conn., is one example of the second-to-known foliage you can see while playing fall golf in New England.

The fall golf season is right around the corner. Born and raised in New England, I can't think of a better time of year to play golf than in the fall.
For starters the summer heat fades steadily once we hit the month of September. It's still warm enough that you don't need to bundle up. September and October are typically the two most comfortable months of the year to play and they stay mostly dry. 
After a comfortable round over the weekend that required a light jacket for the first few holes before the sun broke through the clouds, it made me realize just how much I love golf in the fall here in New England.
This morning when I woke up, the temperatures were in the 50s and we're going to max out at a high around 70 today. Does it get better than that?
And then, there's the New England foliage. No matter the course, each hole looks like a painting when the leaves on the trees are changing color.
Finally, there are some great deals. For instance, there's a place not far from my home in Rhode Island called Crystal Lake Golf Club. They're running specials throughout the fall, including just $100 for all-you-can-play golf throughout the month of October. September is just $200 for all you can play.
If my boss can't get a hold of me for assignments once we get through our Ryder Cup coverage at the end of the month, direct him to the above paragraph and he'll know where to find me!
