Most golfers will tell you anytime is a good time to golf. And here on Cape Cod that is true for most of the year. Yesterday tipped us into autumn and the blue skies, brisk temps and gentle breezes make for perfect golfing weather. Autumn is also when many Cape Codders can take a breath and second homeowners can come down and enjoy their Cape getaways. 

If you don't have a membership to a Cape course, or you do and would like to try your luck at another, greens fee specials are a great way to get out there and have a few extra sheckles left over for a cold one at the 19th hole.

Public courses across the Cape are offering some sweet deals for golfers in September and beyond:
