Fall is an amazing time of the year.

The air gets a bit crisp, the colors become a true vision of wonder and joy. The golf courses are in pristine shape—and they are not crowded! It's time just to get out and play the game, full force, as often as you can before winter sets in. Sure, there are an unlimited number of distractions that can get in the way including work, soccer, kids’ sports, college football, the NFL, high school football, and family responsibilities. Just a few distractions.

But making the time for golf is worth it. Fall is a beautiful time of year. Find the time. Make dates to play 18 or even 9 holes with the family, friends, people from work, or the club. Grab the joy while you can. Go find (or acquire) a few fall outfits, sweaters, and maybe even a hand warmer. Find a bit of time each week to take that joyous walk around the green grass and swing away. You will hit a few good ones, maybe a few poor ones too. The important thing is how playing golf makes you feel. You will be glad you invested the time.

If you have the chance to take the kids, grandkids or friends for 9, do that as often as you can. Talk about having fun with no regrets. Discover the joy on their faces and the laughter that abounds. Now that is a round of golf. Allow yourself time during the fall season to swing away at least 3 times a month. There are dozens of reasons not to. Do it anyway.

Go out and play the game!
