Indoor Golf During This COVID-19 Thing


Recommended Posts

There is a very nice Indoor Golf Facility not too far from where I live. My game NEEDS a lot of work right now. That's especially true for my full swing. I have the funds to get a limited membership allowing me Trackman or GCQuad time. One would think that's a no brainer. Work on your game all winter at the indoor golf place, right?

What do you all think? 
Is that a safe choice during this COVID thing? 
The county in which my wife works just went to purple. That's the highest rating our state has. It's the first county in the state to do so. My wife works remote and has been doing so since March. But it's got me thinking; Am I being responsible by going and working on my golf game INDOORS an hour or two per week just to get time on the Trackman?

Or is that not a smart choice?

I'm curious to hear others opinions.

I think it depends on how many people are there, the precautions the indoor sim is taking, etc. If it's just one or two simulators, and only one person per simulator, that seems okay to me. If there are 10 simulators and 4 people per simulator, that's different.

I'm not sure what purple represents on the scale but my "opinion" is that I personally wouldn't do it, at this time. I've been doing monitored cardio rehab at the local hospital for the last couple of months but have just put my sessions on hold for now due to the very high number of cases recently in the county we live in. All indoor activities away from home are a no go for us until things get better. Of course, we're old and at definite risk - your case may be and probably is different.

A local golf course put in 3 simulators recently.   I bought a winter membership to use them.   Since the latest "shelter in place" order in Michigan they are limiting use to 10 people total for the 3 simulators.   There is no food or beverages.    Yesterday I reserved one for two hours (thought about @Vinsk for about 20 minutes) and wore a mask the entire time.   It's not ideal but it beats sitting at home watching TV.

    • Thanks. Been practicing chipping more than putting. Played a course today with a ton of water. Didn't eliminate penalties or reduce 3 putting today! Back to the range this week. 
    • Here ya go fellas. No problem @Natty LA you'll learn the ropes.
    • I would rather use the other "Would You Rather?" topic.  😀  Bet you didn't know that topic was already out there.  It's a good and recurring one... you might get a kick out of perusing it. Otherwise, a belated welcome to the forum.
    • I want to test out the new Ping G425 series clubs.  Will I buy them?  Probably not.
    • So my kid like to play this game “would you rather”.  They ask silly questions like would you rather eat hair or dirt.  Things like that.  It made me think of the status of my current golf game.  I played horrible overall but my putter was on fire and managed to get a respectable score.  My question is would rather spray the ball all over the course but still manage a low round.  Or have a great ball striking round and have horrible score because of poor putting.  Of course this is all relative obviously but I personally would love to strike the ball well and still not score well because of poor course management, three putts, bad chips, or just bad luck.
