PROS

Pro­vides a more re­laxed en­vi­ron­ment in gen­eral. Makes the golf round much less tense, less se­ri­ous. It’s just a fun day on the course. The re­laxed en­vi­ron­ment calms your nerves, im­proves your play. When groups fin­ish their rounds, every­one’s happy, every­one had a good time. I’ve never seen some­one sulk­ing in his cart, an­gry over a lost bet, a bad round, etc.

CONS

Re-ap­pli­ca­tion of sun­screen through­out the day leads to greasy hands, which isn’t great for your grip. Also, we’ve no­ticed that spray sun­screen is re­ally bad for the grass. Play­ers who first try it aren’t quite used to it. It’s odd see­ing their stom­achs as they ad­dress the ball. With plenty of spots to grab a cock­tail on the course, the more peo­ple drink, the more clothes come off.
