We have a couple golf simulator places locally.  If you are feeling the urge it is a great place to ge with some buddies.  All then ones by be serve beverages, it's a great time.

 

I play year round in a golf league.  The indoor league is less about golf and more about hanging with your buddies but I always walk away with a big smile and it keeps my game in tune.

We are almost there!

One of the best indoor simulators clubhouse just burned down here... Plus I found that I had to spend almost a month or more in the spring fixing my golf swing after playing them over winters. I would rather do that than play pool though.

I have not found that a simulator hurt my game quite the opposite.  The one I play is very accurate so you get good feedback.  If hitting off a mat messes you up there is nothing that can be done.

Fortunately we only got 9" in my area but I know areas around me got more than that.

We got around 2 feet. We cleared 15" yesterday and have the rest to do today. Good news is I fly to Orlando this afternoon!

Is "False Spring" a recent term, or just another one of the many that I am ignorant of? Whatever, this false spring sucks.

No. If you're into gardening you would know it.

I hate when my allergies start flaring up late February.

I hate March for this reason. It taunts us with some nice weather then slaps us in the face.

There's a reason that March is called "the cruelest month"! March can be a tease. Local lore says that if March comes in like a lion, it will go out like a lamb. Well, it came in like a lion, and has been a lion ever since! We can't get out of this cold cycle. Usually you can expect a nicer day here and there, but not this year. Thankfully for the most part, the snow they predict every day has missed us. Still waiting on our "St. Patty's Day blizzard"! To make things worse the local "golf dome" collapsed under the weight of ice and snow deposited by an earlier storm, so there is no place to hit balls! Won't be able to do so until the outdoor ranges open.

Here in Western MA it's been snowing for days. Luckily, I have a snow plow and a mat in the drive with a 90yd wedge shot out to a cup and flag in the front yard. I plow and hit wedges, plow and hit wedges. Lately though, there's been no thaw so I can't retrieve the balls. I have a buddy though who gets buckets of balls dropped off by his friend who works at a golf course so I just keep stopping by to get more balls from him. Come the thaw, I'm going to collect about 4 spackle pails full of balls!

I'l always psycho this time of year but this season I joined a beautiful private course so my looniness is tenfold.
