I used to play winter golf on the weekends all winter if there wasn't snow on the ground. I have my own cart cover which makes a big difference. I preach the benefits of playing early during warm summer months, but it's not possible in the winter. I normally play winter-golf late morning to give frost a chance to thaw, and the frigid early morning temps a chance to moderate.
My son started bowling about 18 months ago, and this put an end to winter golf. The little dude and I will bowl from noon-4/5pm! We usually bowl at least 15 game each...LOL 22 games each is our record.... I put bowling first because it's quality father/son time. Sooner or later, he'll ditch his old man and I'll have the rest of my life to play golf in the winter. For now.....I bowl. LOL
With today being Black Friday, we're going bowling today
