Yep.  If you could have 12 months like July, no one would ever leave!   That's why I don't go back to Wisconsin in the summer.  It lures you in, then buries your ass in snow and sleet for 7 months

It starts getting depressing in July and August when you can feel the days getting shorter. 

I don't have to mention, she does enough on her own.  And yes, she's working on getting a birthday MONTH!

In Spokane, summer starts July 4th and ends August 30th.  I went to an outdoor concert last night and regretted not bringing a sweater.  

It looks like Spokane has chilly nights even in summer.

It's typical 95+ degree weather for the last two weeks.

I still see some players out on the course. My club has some true die hard gamers. :) But, it looks like I'm going to have to sacrifice 3 weeks of the summer.

This time off, just makes me more eager to come back and make up for the lost time. I always come back refreshed.

When the temp is is too high to play, I still drive by my golf course and driving range - and wish I was out there. It's beautiful.

Gloating?  I can't wait for October.  God it's hot this summer!  :~(

October is nice in New England too. I would say it's my favorite month because the courses aren't crowded, the temperature is perfect for me and the foliage stunning.

I do miss the fall foliage on the golf courses in New England.  The Maine State Golf Assoc. has a great weekly tournament schedule and the Country Clubs that you got to play were always during the fall and had great weather and foliage.

But I certainly don't miss the winters.

We are not allowed to utter the W word in July!

Yeah.  When I was in Wisconsin I always said that I didn't mind 12 months in the year, but I wished that 6 were July and 6 were October!

Last year in Michigan, we golfed from late March until early November.   That's unusual but we rarely have a day during the summer that is too hot to golf.   I think being a snowbird would be the best of both worlds.

Well… to the OP:

  • How much do you practice versus play? And by "practice" I mean properly.
  • Yes, get the GG.
  • You're not far from @mchepp and he plays year-round, I think…?

Spokane is a pretty different weather pattern from Portland. They have a legitimate winter with snow and all that kinda stuff, they are much drier though. We can play all year but for much of the winter it ain't much fun, sloppy wet golf.

Y'all need a Golf Evolution indoor facility. ;-)

You build one here, and I will run it for you! :)

Even when I lived in New Jersey, I couldn't stand summer.  I just don't play well when I'm uncomfortable.  Living in South Carolina now... playing during the summer is a chore.  Forget practice.  I've literally been to the course for some practice sessions that lasted 20 minutes before I would slink off into the 19th hole for some air conditioning.  

Every time I check the weather apps for the last 2+ months, it's been a high 90's temperature with a heat index of 110+.  It SUCKS.

I do a majority of my most effective practice in late September, October, February and March.  It's comfortable... I enjoy being outside during those times... and I don't have any excuses.  

I'm very much looking forward to football season and some slightly more comfortable temperatures.  I don't really leave my couch on Sunday's (unless I have something scheduled)... and Saturday's in the south mean the courses are primarily empty because everybody is watching the Clemson, USC or UNC games.

Count me among those who are eagerly counting down the weeks remaining until there's a break in the oppressive heat.

In the original post I kindly asked people in year round golf locations not to gloat.  :-P

I grew up in Las Vegas and we would even play in the 110 degree heat... but it was a dry heat.  I would not be able to tolerate the humidity you live in and would be right next to you in the clubhouse.

Haha!  Sorry 'bout that.  I definitely wasn't gloating... more complaining, actually.  

;-)

One of my buddies lives in Arizona.  He's originally from Minnesota.  He won't go outside in the summer for anything.  I don't want to feel 110 degrees... dry, humid or otherwise.  

If you find yourself down this way in the summer... pull up a seat and I'll buy ya a drink to help cool you off!

    • Another not hopeless round of 93 with a lot to work on yesterday.  Fairways 5/14, Greens 5/18 and, 37!! (only one 3-putt) putts, with 6 doubles and a tripple. 5 balls in the water and not making a single putt outside 5 feet is not the recipe for success...  I definitely make a lot of good shots, but with 50% of my shots missing left (18% right) I know what I need to work on.   
    • Nice. I’ve got the second generation sensors as well, so I’d like to use them as long as I can. I’ve got a few putter sensors that have gone dead (I assume from the battery) that I can try this out on. 
    • Voted no. I think armlock putting looks kind of weird, especially the Zalatoris armlock claw stroke and Bryson's robotic motion, but I don't really care (I have a LAB DF 2.1, so it's not like my putter looks cool or anything). I don't see a reason to ban armlock as compared to the broomstick or belly putters which actually seem to have an anchor point.
    • Anyone gaming a set of these, I've bought a set of these irons off ebay. I'm feeling the difference between swinging my 6 iron and my wedge, want to try Brysons method of one swing. If you've tried AGX I'd appreciate your feedback, thanks..
