Looks like (or very similar to) the Merkur HD.
I rinse the head off when its too covered in shave cream.  It takes a lot to clog up the head with hair (assuming you shave regularly anyway), I rarely find a need to rinse the for that. And as long as you follow the no extra pressure rule there are no issues with the jaw line and chin.  The blade isn't as exposed as you might be thinking.  Take a look at some pictures of safety razors on google and you'll see what I mean.
It's not difficult at all. The number one rule, well number two actually.  Number one would be: the blade NEVER travels sideways!  The number two rule is: no pressure!  The weight of the safety razor itself provides all the pressure necessary, don't press the blade against your skin.  If you do this you will never suffer razor burn unless you are using a dull blade.  Just get your face nice and hot and hydrated (right out of the shower is my personal preference), apply...
I'm a member at simulator place up the street.  I joined for the same reason as you, winters up here are long!  I tried using a golf dome for a while but it was way too cold and way too expensive.   My simulator place uses HDGolf.  Absolutely amazing visuals since they take actual photos at the course.  The trade off is they only have 20+ courses.  I love playing in the leagues (I play in 2 leagues during the week).  Met some great guys and a few new golf buddies that way.
I've got a Merkur HD safety razor that I've had for I don't know how long.  I use it for shaving my head as well so it gets a lot of use over the course of a week.  I like Feather blades as they're wicked sharp.  I use a badger brush and whatever shaving cream the body shop has for men (changes yearly and it lasts for ages so I don't really pay attention).   I also did a brief trial with a straight razor.  Gave an amazing shave but I didn't have the guts to use it on the...
@Riz757 thanks for the advice!  We did indeed end up going with Ocean Ridge and the Big Cats courses.  The price just couldn't be beat.  I liked the look of Pine Needles but it was just way out of our price range.  My brother and I are both the play all day kind of golfer and travelling that far to play only 3 rounds just isn't appealing to us.  I think the next time we're going to Florida I'm going to suggest detouring to play Pine Needles on the way down (or back up). It...
I'm a member at a simulator facility that has HDgolf simulators. I'm there 4 or 5 times a week including a couple of leagues.  Not quite the same but it's good to keep swinging and the social aspect is great too.  Met many a golfing buddy there.   We usually head to Florida before Christmas as well but no time this year, arranging a weekend trip to Myrtle Beach area instead just before Christmas.
I'm waiting for a few more quotes to come in (I gather it's a holiday today for you guys) but I think we're probably going to go with the big cats courses at Ocean Ridge.  The courses look great and they gave an excellent price (assuming the accommodations are decent) of a little under $300USD per person.  3 nights and 6 rounds (2 on each of the 'cheaper courses' and 1 each on the other 2) all taxes and fees included.  No food or anything but that's fine and should put us...
@Harmonious, wow that's embarassing!  My US geographical knowledge is worse than I thought! :-D And if that was what you consider chilly I think I can deal!  My last round this year was -4C with snow flying and a wind chill of -12C.  Anything above 0C now will feel like shorts weather to me.   @iacas I think I came across a thread you posted a couple/few years ago mentioning those courses?  We will definitely check them out,
We were originally thinking the area around Charlotte (sp?) but mostly because it was the first name that came to mind (we usually stop for lunch there on our drive to Florida). Hilton Head and Myrtle Beach of course were near the top of the list but there are so many options it's hard to know where to start. Really we have no preference and recommendations from locals are usually the best.  You guys (and gals) tend to know the local hidden gems!
