Golf-light Savings Time

In the Gaylord Golf Mecca, we call it Golf-light Savings Time instead of Daylight Savings Time.

By Greg Johnson

The Gaylord Golf Mecca is on the golf side of the Eastern Time Zone, which means you can play golf until almost 10:00 p.m. on many summer nights.

One of the great concerns with golf is that it takes too much precious time to play, but with our 17 extraordinary member courses at nine properties, including resorts, 21 lodging partners and a vibrant Gaylord summer fun area, we make your play time precious.

Play as much as you like.

Did we talk about the sunsets yet? Those sunsets are worth the wait, especially if you are on the way in across one of our green back nines or sitting on one of the decks that overlook the world-class collection of No. 18 holes at the member courses of the Mecca.

The decks at Indian River Golf Club or The Natural at Beaver Creek Resort, along with the view from the lodge at Otsego Resort, are unforgettable settings late into the day, but just three of many.

Golf-light Savings Time is perfect for any golfer who just can’t get enough. That extra nine? There’s time. Settle a bet on the putting course? No problem. Plenty of light to see.

Golf packages are available in the Mecca that beat all rivals.
