Drink Enough Fluids 

Staying properly hydrated can be a challenge, but it is crucial for your golf game. Make sure to drink plenty of fluids before hitting the course, ideally a few hours prior to tee-off. Keeping a water bottle handy during your round will help you stay refreshed and focused. And remember, alcohol can actually dehydrate you, so it's best to stick to water to keep your body functioning at its best.

Wear Light, Breathable Clothing 

Loose and light clothing will help you stay comfortable and cool when golfing. Wear lightweight, long-sleeve shirts and pants to provide protection from the sun. Keep in mind that the materials of your clothing, such as cotton, are known to be breathable and many brands are starting to provide items out of fabrics that contain SPF.

Wear Sunscreen 

During the sunny summer days, your skin is exposed to the powerful rays of the sun, which can be harmful and lead to sunburn. It is essential to protect your skin by applying sunscreen with an SPF of 50 or higher generously to all exposed areas, including your face, arms, and legs. Reapply every two hours, especially if you are sweating heavily. Don't forget to shield your eyes with sunglasses to prevent sun damage. Surprisingly, sunburns can occur even on cloudy summer days, so it's wise to stay prepared and check the UV forecast before hitting the golf course.

Eat Lighter, Healthy Meals 

Eating light and healthy meals will help you retain adequate energy for golfing. However, be sure to avoid overeating because you will feel heavy and sluggish. It is also best to eat earlier, probably a few hours before golfing. Opt for foods that are high in water content, such as fruits and vegetables, and avoid sugary or caffeinated beverages, which can dehydrate you. You can also pack some snacks, such as granola bars or trail mix, to keep your energy levels up throughout the game.
