I'm a weekend golfer, work a normal 8 to 5 so justifying a membership to a local course doesn't make sense. One thing I have realized at the course I frequent is early in the morning from like 630 am to 8 am the course I play at has a few trash cans loaded with balls. I guess the thought process is most people playing at that hour in the morning are members who have free range access so why deal with bags laying all over the place. Well...this leads to a SURPLUS of balls scattered all over the range tees. I've been showing up and using the range for free because on any other normal day balls that are left all over the tees, chipping green or putting green are up for grabs? But what's the thought here?
