Went full Dew Sweeper yesterday - just your casual 5:30am tee time on a Sunday morning.

Tee shots off #1 were tough to see but by the time we got to 2 tee it was all good.

Two foursomes; we were finished by 9:00am.

I like to go out early and finish before it gets hot. At one course I play on a lot (men's club member) I can go out really early when no one is there, play nine, and pay my fees at the turn.

This course is my happy place 😍

Frost delay put a damper on my latest dew sweeping agenda... love the sun glare and fairway path left behind on a good dew sweeping morning.

Started a round at 7:30 yesterday. It was fantastic. We finished in 3:15 and never saw another soul until we came to 18 which runs beside 9.

We did follow the grounds crew for about 2 holes and they had a kid with an actual dew sweeper. He was knocking dew off the edges of the green after mowing LOL

Yup….Every Saturday and Sunday we have either two or three groups going out at 7 AM first tee times of the day, greens are usually not an issue as they’ve either been cut or rolled or both. The only real hassle is that the fairways are pretty dewey and the rough is very wet because it’s typically pretty thick. Have to have good waterproof shoes.

I've played in the first or second tee time every weekday, weather permitting, for about the last twelve years. It isn't always just dew we have to contend with as each of the four courses I've belonged to in that time tend/tended to water first thing in the morning and three of the four seemed to do it every day!

The first time I got into golf was 30 years ago. Me and my friends would show up without a tee time when its still dark. Just as a little daylight was peeking over the horizon to the east we would ask the group in front if they mind us starting first. They always said no problem because it was not light enough for them.

We'd crouch behind the guy teeing off to track the ball. By the time we got to the second hole it was full light. At the turn we'd go to the club house and pay our fees. Then finish the back nine. By 10:00 we'd be at our favorite little Mexican restaurant eating breakfast. Chile Verde and eggs was my favorite.

First off this morning. We played 18 in 2.5 hours. I may hate getting up at 5:30 in the morning, but I sure do like being doing playing so quickly.

We joined a new course this year and are getting the first tee time. Even with cart path only, four of us are playing in about 2:45.

That is pretty quick! There was just two of us today, but our course is really spread out so it takes a while sometimes to get between holes. Three of us can usually play in about 2 hours and 45 minutes to 3 hours.

Perfect pace for three in my opinion

We went off at 5:00am (our usual for Sunday) today. I used a glow ball for the tee shot.
