Winter Depression Thread - Page 39

post #685 of 948

Just received an email from my home course that they are opening THIS Friday.  "Book your Friday or Saturday tee time now" it read.

 

Weather forecast?  Rain and low-40s both days. Yeah, right.

 

My league starts there Thursday, April 3rd.  I'm sure it'll be cold enough to SNOW by the time we tee off two weeks from tomorrow!

 

Like everywhere else in the east and midwest, winter continues. 10-day forecast for NE Ohio looks like more of the same.  Nothing remotely CLOSE to golf weather!  Ugh.

I played today.  It was 43 degrees with a 20mph wind.   I have no idea what the wind chill was but nevertheless, I was golfing.........

First 18 holes of the year. Last time I played was early December. Shot around 85. Hallelujah!

Winter in New England continues with cold temperatures and now rain to add some fun.  Thought we'd have a nice(r) weekend coming up but then saw that it's going to rain again.  Beginning to wonder if we'll ever get out to the course again.  Hopefully I can at least get to the range and maybe even play some golf assuming any of the courses are open (they're not yet though, but I'm hopeful).

I think we got 12 inches...


Edit: make that 14 inches. Add that to the 36 we already have... I can't see my grill anymore.

Oh come on, Dave! I'm playing tomorrow over at Ridge! The conditions will undoubtedly be horrible, but I'm bored with the range. Our current weather has nothing on some UA Cold Gear! Throw on a skull cap, grab a thermos of Folgers and swing away!

I'm looking outside right now.  I see snow on roof of house across the street.  All the bushes are blowing sideways.

 

The good news is that you'll be the only one there and most likely WON'T have to pay!!!  Keep in touch.  Want to see how the new sticks are working out for you.

Haha, it will probably be a mud pit. Ridgetop is traditionally a pretty nice public course as you know and I"m really surprised they're open already, let alone letting carts out... It's supposed to be 50+ and somewhat sunny so it may not be that bad. They did say it was $20, but that's only a few more bucks than the range that I go to (typically don't care about the cost, but considering the conditions, I would not pay more than $20 on a course where the snow literally melted last week with no maintenance afterwards).

So far everything is great with the new sticks. There's a huge ball flight change with the AP1s than I had with my forged Cobra set. I'm really happy so far and worked out the kinks hitting the range all winter. I'll be due for a case of the yanks by May though. Happens every year!

Right there with you, neighbor! Can't wait (may even try to sneak out this afternoon if I can). Saw that weather forecast for next week - not much would suck more than getting snow AGAIN. Thinking positive...a3_biggrin.gif

Have fun out there.

Even though it's snowing now, and there appears to be 2" on the ground, things are looking good for golf tomorrow if it doesn't rain. We played two weekends ago and it wasn't too bad. I wouldn't let myself watch golf on TV until I got one round in. lol.

post #696 of 948

The 8 inches we got monday melted very fast.  65* tomorrow and 48* on Sunday (my 30th birthday!).  Will play at least 2 rounds this weekend.  Its really very hard to contain my excitement.  

 

But I can still commiserate--they're calling for more snow on Tuesday.

Great weather all week (excluding some 20-30 mph afternoon winds). But I had high priority ($$) project going and could not break free. :blink:

 

Snow expected through the weekend, warmer and drier next week. :dance:

 

Hope to get a few rounds in midweek next.

 

Springtime in the Rockies! :8)

post #698 of 948

With winter projected to make a comeback next week ... couldn't take it any more - even though I'm sick & fighting off a cold with a fever (my wife pretty much resigned to the fact that I'm nuts) - took Friday off work, drove an hour and a half south & played Heron Glen.      MId 40's, windy as hell, but sunny.    Pretty brutal conditions - played well.     Pitched in from 50 ft & chipped in from 25 on the next hole (all my work over the winter in the living room paid off !!).      Driving pretty well, unfortunately a few really loose approach shots & shot 85, which is about where I left off last year ... so overall, was happy I toughed it out & played ... now I have all weekend to recover.

I hate this guy.

Still in Naples, so wish I could bring this weather back to No. VA. Hopefully the storm on Tuesday doesn't last very long. Have the golf bug after playing every day here in Naples. Teeing off at 12 at Grey Oaks CC the Estuary Coure.

How is this for a late March forecast? -3 right now, and it doesn't appear to be getting warmer anytime soon.
post #702 of 948

Man, that sucks, Detroit a bit better, but not golfable:
