One of those sports that have caught my attention in the last two years is golf. I’m as fresh as they get when it comes to playing golf, so I’m pretty bad. But just the idea of the sport, both watching it and playing it, gets me amped up. Thanks to my brother, I’ve been following the majors (at the very least) while also trying to get some swings in at least every two weeks or so if I can manage it.
In fact, I’m going to meet up with my brothers and cousins this weekend to play at least 18 holes. I say at least because we’ve got it in our minds that we’re going to shoot 36 holes that day, though that’s a bit ambitious to say the least.
Anyway, I’m trying to figure out what I should pack for snacks since it’ll likely be a long day.
The first thing that comes to mind, though not a snack, is having some natural drinks. There’s nothing like playing a round of golf and sipping a natural drink in between. So, while that’s the priority, it still doesn’t solve what I’ll want to snack on to tide my stomach over during a long day.
I’ve been considering picking up some beef jerky, as it’ll be great to chew on for awhile while also providing the energy I need to keep going. I also find that jerky is filling enough to keep my hunger pangs at bay for a few hours.
One underrated snack, in my opinion, is candy boxes. The fact that candy comes in little cardboard boxes is convenient as heck, first off. But being able to pick out one or two candy boxes for the day is also great since they’re usually high sugar, which will give me the boost I’ll likely need around noon between rounds.
Ultimately, I’m sure I’d be find with eating anything out on the course between rounds. So long as I’ve got something in me (and a base for the beer I’ll be drinking most of the day), I should be good to go on the hunger side of things and the energy side.
