When I was a kid, the best part about golfing with my dad was the turn, where he’d buy me a king-sized bag of peanut M&M’s. And on hot, sunny days, I had to eat them fast before they melted all over my fingers and stained the grips on my clubs. Delicious, yes! Healthy, not so much. Nowadays, there’s a push for healthier snacks with simple ingredients. Sunbird Snacks are a great option to offer your clubhouse guests.
Golfers are athletes! They need to nourish their bodies with healthy, energizing fuel before, during, and after their round of golf. Think nuts and dried fruits. Loaded with fiber and protein, with salty and sweet ingredients, trail mixes are perfect for golfers to munch on while sitting in their golf carts waiting to tee off or for when you take a quick break on a hike.
Cajun Snack Mix, Corn Country Snack Mix, Game Day Mix, and 19th Hole Snack Mix are great options to fuel hungry golfers. They can grab a few handfuls while they wait for a drink or toss a bag into their golf bags to munch on later. Keep things simple, without a lot of grease or oil that could get all over fingers, golf grips, and gloves.
And speaking of simple, almonds, pistachios, cashews, and peanuts are great sources of protein and fiber—important for building muscles, increasing energy, and maintaining blood sugar levels.
Keep it interesting for your golfers. Provide a variety of textures, flavors, and spices, so you can appeal to everyone and your repeat customers can switch it up when they get bored with plain old almonds. Buffalo Wing Nuts might make one golfer’s mouth water one week, but the next week, he or she will be craving Butter Toffee Peanuts. Some might like the crunch of honey mustard pretzels while others might want the chewy sweetness of dried apricots and pineapples.
And to wash it all down, think about sports drinks, bottled water, and bottles of iced teas in addition to your sodas and alcohols. Golf is a game of physical fitness and mental acuity, so golfers need to stay hydrated to maximize their game!
