post #181 of 912

Ron please refrain from any more posts in this thread...this is a golf WINTER DEPRESSION thread, not a winter RUB IT IN YOUR FACE thread.

 

I can't take any more gut punches courtesy of Northern California.

Office closed early today due to the storm. Took me an hour and forty-five minutes to get home. It should be a fifteen minute ride. Sometimes I have to wonder why the heck I am still in New England.

So glad I took off Friday to play. Took me 3 hrs to get home. Can't even imagine how the LIE was

Lol, We have a bunch of snow here in Indiana. S0 much in fact, that I am done with this white crap all over the place. I'm moving to San Antonio in April, so I am really looking forward to no more snow in winter.

 

Then I can go out and play a round the day after Christmas :)

But you White Mountain folks love snow!

 

This is the first year in a while that we are not going to the Caribbean for February vacation.  My son is in college now.  This is going to be a long winter. 

I am not a "White mountain folk". I am a transplant.

I can't figure out why I moved here....but I didn't play golf until after I moved here...

I transplanted to No. VA from Maine just for that reason.  And our area got the most snow we've had in a few years, can't remember getting any last year other than a dusting.  I'm glad it doesn't last very long.  :-)

I grew up in CT and probably played only 1 or 2 rounds of golf per year. Since I've started playing seriously and gotten completely addicted 1.5 years ago, I have never hated winter more.

Seems like you had the right idea! Honestly, when my career allows for it, I will probably look to relocate to a warmer locale where golf year-round is an actual possibility. I am getting pretty sick of hitting balls in the freezing cold at a "heated" driving range, working with my swing coach on a simulator, and doing mirror work at home. Those things are great and I enjoy getting working to get better, but sometimes you just need to go out and play golf.

In the DC area it was warm enough on Sunday (mid 40's) to get in 18. I'm glad I did rather than watch NFL, because we aren't going to see the ground again for quite a while. Just 4 inches or so or snow, but it isn't supposed to be above 32 for at least 10 days and it is 6 degrees this morning.

I got the mock putting green set up in the living room, and putt about 15 ft into a container.

If you know what "The Kanc" is, you are White Mountain folk.

Warn enough to hit some balls today, unfortunately there is snow covering everything.

Still some snow from the Wed storm but 55 today and maybe 60 tomorrow. Courses should open Sun. Some may even open tomorrow afternoon. I've only been out once in 2014. It's fun and all but the inconsistent conditions especially the greens are frustrating. June can't get here fast enough. It was a long spring last year, golf was so-so until the mowers started running regularly. My home course is a grass range all year so may just hit balls even if it's just off what's left of the grass.

FYI.

 

Most courses will be open tomorrow.  I called around because I was itching to play.
