To most people, Black Friday just means deals on shopping. However, with online shopping, the traditional Black Friday is not the same. Many companies already have Black Friday sales going on and eliminate the need to physically go shopping the day after Thanksgiving.
Black Friday for golfers really is not much different. The biggest difference is that we golfers will want to take advantage of the Black Friday deals for ourselves while others use Black Friday as a day to do some Christmas shopping for others. Although golfers could do both we really just want to get the things we would normally buy, that cost us so much all year, at a sale price. For example, this could be a good time to stock up on golf gloves or tees for next year. It may also be an opportunity to get some golf apparel you've had your eye on. Like the more expensive "rain gear". Personally I have had my eye on the Turtelson Riggs Water Resistant Quarter Zip Pullover (shown below) from the Golf Nola Shop.
For the golf industry, Black Friday typically means the busiest golf day of the year. With more people having off work on Black Friday there are more golfers looking to play golf somewhere. Usually, if you do not make a tee time 3-5 days ahead of time you will not be able to get on any golf course. This is also the case at private clubs as well. Looking at a few online golf course tee sheets for today or even on Golf Now there are already a good number of tee time slots missing.
The only golfers who have any issues on Black Friday are those that many golf as a single. Even as a single golfer it is recommended to call ahead a few days. Some golf courses may be able to book you with a group of 3 or they will put you on a singles list and ask that you be on property by a certain time. Either way, you may have to wait for a spot to open from a no-show or cancelation. The reasoning for the list is that even when groups book for 3 golfers they sometimes bring a 4th and as a single, you may be asked to wait. Some golf courses will be strict and not let the extra golfer play and give you the spot but that is rare. The main reason however golf courses use a list is so they can book as many groups of 4 as possible and then put the single golfers in as they can in the order they called or checked in at the property.
Be sure and book those tee times early and be sure and check every website of your favorite golf products for deals.
