Top Golf States for On-Course Beer Consumption – Who Takes the Title?
When chatting it up about your golf escapades with your pals, the conversation usually revolves around the number of birdies you had or, for the guys in my group, the bogey count... but hold up because apparently, you also need to keep track on the scorecard the beer tally!
Yep, the curious minds at Pickswise.com threw a bit of a twist (or maybe it's more like a mulligan) and posed the question to around 1500 golfers from various corners of the globe: "How many cold ones did you pop open while out on the course?"
Now, no big shocker here, Utah takes home the trophy for the least beer-guzzling during an 18-hole round, clocking in at a modest 1.1. Massachusetts and Vermont are the almost-as-sober runners-up with 1.6 each per round. Meanwhile, the sippin' scale hits the middle ground in states like Minnesota, Georgia, and California, each boasting a respectable 3.5 beers per round.
But hold on, you might wonder about our region. Well, New York comes in with a decent 1.9 beers (let's call it 2) per round, proving they've got a knack for a relaxed swing and sip. Now, golfers in Pennsylvania sure know how to enjoy their time on the course, racking up a solid 4.2 beers per round, easily snagging a top 5 spot alongside golfers from Nevada and Missouri. As for us Jersey golfers, we're cruising right around the middle with a respectable 3.8 beers per round. It's a pretty solid showing!
So who takes the crown for the booziest golfers? It's none other than the sunshine-soaked land of FLORIDA, where the average golfer boasts an ample 4.8 beers per 18 holes. (I'm placing bets that it's a mix of vacation vibes and, well, just being Florida.)
Texas slides in next at 4.6, followed by North Carolina and New Mexico at 4.3. And rounding out the top 5, we've got Pennsylvania, Nevada, and Missouri tipping the beer scales at 4.2 per round.
Ultimately, it's a victory all around – whether you're chasing birdies, shrugging off bogeys, or savoring your round with friends over a cold brew or two. There's no judgment here; feel free to keep score any way you'd like.
