Protect Your Skin on the Golf Course

Feb 13, 2014

South Florida is known for beautiful sunny weather, but we all know the sun has the ability to do harm as well. When you come to Deer Creek Golf Club and play a round of golf with friends or family, be sure you have adequate protection from the strong South Florida UV rays. Here are our must-haves for a safe day of golf out in the sun:

Sunscreen. Use an SPF 30 or higher and remember to reapply throughout the round. Put your first application on about 30 minutes before starting, and reapply sunscreen every 2 hours. This will help protect your skin. Remember that you need SPF even if it is cloudy!

Sunglasses. Gazing down the fairway can be difficult without polarized lenses, and it can also be detrimental to your eyes. Protect your vision and follow your drive by wearing a pair of sunglasses out on the course.

Hat. Male or female, young or old, a hat can provide a great deal of sun protection to your entire face and to the top of your head. Many people do not think about their scalp getting a sunburn, but it happens all the time and it can be quite uncomfortable. Wear a hat on the course and you’ll give your head and your face some extra protection.

Show up to the course and forget one of these items? Do not worry! Stop by our South Florida golf pro shop and pick up the items you need to have a safe and fun day on our golf course.
