By GBB Staff Introduction The frozen greens and frost delays of winter – no thanks. You can keep the scorching sun and humidity of summer afternoons. Dormant grass and bumpy greens of spring – don’t love it. Fall is our favorite season for golf, and it has nothing to do with pumpkin spice lattes. Why do we love golf in the fall?
