Fall Northeast Golf - a little disappointing!! - Page 3

post #37 of 87

Looks like the weather for the next few days will be in the 50's unfortunately, there's a 50% chance of rain. I might be able to get another round or two in. The club I belong to closed down for the season last week but, we got the OK to use the course if the weather permits. just no flag sticks, tee box markers, golf carts, etc. I'm a walker so, carts don't matter to me anyway.

 

Richter Park is still open and will official close down for the season on December 9th.

 

I agree with the late season lost ball epidemic. Me and the guys I play with intentionally watch each others shots in an effort to find the balls easier but, some just seem to enter the "Bermuda Triangle" of golf..... they simply vanish even though we saw where they landed. Could be fairway gnomes taking them. LOL

I don't know if anything is even open in my neck of the woods.

It's almost 70 here right now, and tomorrow is supposed to be the same...I think I feel a bit of a cold coming on..

I live just south of Boston and have been playing on the weekends. Last winter was a gift, and I can only hope this weather continues.  I'll play if it's not raining or too windy and it's 35* or higher.

I'm a member at the Harmon Club in Rockland, MA.  It's a small private 9 hole club, but if you're ever in the area, and want to play, I'd be happy to meet you on a Saturday morning around 9:00 is when I play.

 

The South Shore Country Club in Hingham is open.  It's a nice 18 hole course open to the public.

I played Hillview in North Reading, MA yesterday.  It was nice.  Most course in MA are still open.  I know Scottish Highlands in Salem is closed, but call around.

HA!  I was a a house boy (my actual job title) there when I was 16!  I cleaned bathrooms, set up and broke down weddings, caddied, and one time even tended bar!  Hated that job!  Worked 12 - 14 hours on a Saturday or Sunday.  The only good thing was the wait staff and cooks would sneak me food.

I want to get down to Mass and play. It is a 3 hour drive and Saturday is one of the days I have my daughter. I am hoping it changes soon and maybe we can get together.

I don't know if I would say the out loud to myself...

Trull Brook in Tewksbury is open and Far Corner in Boxford is always open unless there is snow on the ground.  Both are just over the NH/MA line.  Trull is in great shape still.

 

And yes, "house boy" was a really weird job title.

Are you playing it still? I could do a Thurs or Sunday at either...

Played Ridgefield Golf Course in Connecticut on monday. course was wet but in real nice condtion, even the bunkers were the best I had seen on any other course this year. Still hard to see the balls land even with 2 other guys looking hard. Goes with the territory of fall golf I guess. Still good to be out, although I promised myself I would give it up and shoot trap and skeet for the fall/winter.

Played Renault Winery yesterday - absolutely gorgeous, both the weather and the course. Shot 44/40, should have shot a 38 on the back if I didn't double the 18thc1_cursing.gif

huh..."house boy" is what my wife calls me....

post #52 of 87
I have been getting out about twice a week still, in Wareham and Marion Mass. I hope it lasts a while!
post #53 of 87

I might try to play Sunday somewhere. Maybe on the NH/MA border. It is slated to be cloudy and not ot as warm as Monday but often the weather jumps a little forward. Anyone playing that day? I could prob do a 12 pm tee time, depending on how far I am away from the course.

Learned something new playing mid december northeast golf, the golf ball bounces just as far off a frozen green as a cart path...................kinda tuff for approach shots. Well that just about cured me for playing anymore golf even if the course is open. Where are you springtime......................
