Pros of playing golf alone
1 It’s a great way to relax
2 More time to work on skills
3 Improve your course management
4 Less pressure to score well
5 Round takes less time to finish
6 You can play more holes
7 No need for small talk
Playing solo takes the focus off how everyone else is playing and puts the onus firmly on your own game. Having 100% concentration on how you play the course lets you focus on the precise task in front of you.
While life is busy, it’s also consumed with social media, text messages, voicemails, and a plethora of tech. This stuff gets addictive and can often be extremely detrimental to our mental health.
Cons of playing golf alone
1 Being paired with annoying partners
2 Getting stuck behind other groups
3 Having to ‘play through’ slow groups
4 Being unable to enter your scorecard
5 No witnesses for great shots
Many courses won’t book a single until the day of, if at all. This is especially true of online tee-time services. In short, if you’re solo, you are S.O.L. on reservations.
