Is Golfing a good First Date?

Is golfing a good first date?

I’ve been there, done that, and don’t recommend golfing for the first date.  Here are my experiences and thoughts:

  • You are typically nervous on the first tee, now think about hitting the first ball this man will see.  You can mishit it which he’ll think that it will be an extremely long round or you crank one out there and he’ll be intimidated.  Also, remember that he will tee off first and you will most likely have the same thoughts!
  • His golfing personality will be apparent after a few holes.  This could be a good thing or a bad thing.  If you get lucky and it’s a good thing, congratulations.  But, what if a golf temper comes out, cursing and tossing a club or two.  How do you react?  You don’t want to try to calm him down but laughter doesn’t work either…your only option is the silent treatment.  Are we having fun yet?
  • What if you have a terrible round and you just can’t get it together…so much for a second date.
  • I believe it’s inherent in men to play better than a woman.  How do you win believing this and have a fun date?  Humor can really help but that is assuming he has a sense of humor.
  • What do you wear?  How many terrific golf outfits do you own?  I believe every gal should own at least 2 great golf outfits for either first dates, company outings, and scrambles you are invited to play. 

Golfing can be so much fun but probably not on a first date.  Pick your other options for the first few dates and then suggest golf after you know each other better.  If the man has potential, keep it safe for awhile until you can dazzle him outside the golf course.


Have fun and enjoy!
