What You Need To Know: Cigars and Golfing

Golf and cigars go hand and hand while playing a round of golf. But, here are some tips to keep in mind:

Be Respectful

If you are not sure if your partner smokes, ask first. There are some non-smokers that do not mind if you smoke – if that’s the case, then no worries. If they don´t smoke, try to remove yourself from the group when you feel like having one. There is nothing like trying to set up for a shot and you have a bunch of cigar smoke flying in your face.

Don’t Ash on the Course

You might think that ashing your cigar wouldn´t be a problem, but it can be. Ashing on the greens is a no-no. The greens are in good shape, so keep it that way. The same goes with disposal. Don´t just throw it into the rough, try to dispose of it properly.

Taking Your Swing

Some of us are able to still concentrate with a cigar in our mouth. One thing that you should never do is put the cigar on the grounds. You need to remember that there are a lot of fertilizers and other chemicals on the ground.

Finding Your Perfect Type of Cigar

You know how long a round of golf can take. Find a cigar that can last as long as you do. Weekends you definitely want to be prepared. The longer waits from more people being on the course, as you know, can easily add an hour to the game.

Bringing some of your best cigars can be a waste, so maybe take the cigars that you just need to get rid of and share them with your friends. Taking your best cigars will not give you a chance to enjoy your cigar (especially if your game is not going as planned).
