As golf courses around the country start to reopen, golfers must once again decide what to eat while playing golf. An 18 hole round can take up to four hours, so it’s important to stay hydrated and fed when you’re out on the course.
Although the way you pack your golf bag is a matter of preference, there are some important qualities to look for when choosing the best snacks for the golf course. You want a snack that’s not messy, easy to eat, and gives you energy for all 18 holes. Here are our recommendations to help you improve your snack game as much as your golf game.
Pick your favorites
1. Beef Jerky
Beef jerky is hands down one of the best golf snacks you can find. It is a good source of protein that’s great for eating on the go. It’s also a crowd pleaser, assuming your golf partners eat meat.
2. Trail Mix
For people seeking a vegetarian snack that’s high protein and high convenience, trail mix is the way to go. Not only are there a variety of organic trail mix brands to choose from, but you can easily make your own trail mix at home. Get your favorite type of nuts, some chocolate, and some dried fruit, and you’ve got the perfect golf snack.
3. Fresh Fruit
Fresh fruit is a great way to supplement any golfer’s snack pack. Fruits are high in carbs and nutrients that give you a natural energy boost. However, fruits are also high in sugar which could wear on you as the day goes on.
Not into dried fruit and chocolate? Skip the trail mix and go with some simple mixed nuts. Not only are they easy to tuck into your golf bag for later, but they’ll keep you full and energized throughout the game.
5. Granola Bars
Granola bars are another reliable, non-perishable snack to stash in your golf bag. You can get them at the store or make your own at home for an even healthier option.
While we aren’t recommending you snack on greasy potato chips all day, baked tortilla chips are a healthy alternative to a junk food classic. Like many of these snacks, you can make your own at home if you’re feeling crafty.
7. Whatever your friends brought
One of the benefits of golfing with friends is getting to partake in their snack selection. Sharing snacks among your group makes sure everyone is fed and able to play their best game.
Enjoy your post game meal
After a long day in the sun enjoying 18 holes with your friends, it’s time to sit down to a proper meal.
