We got out Sunday as well. Tripled the last with a ball ob for an 87. Was a beautiful day high 50's and we were the only ones on the course !
Course was actually pretty heavily booked. We got out at 10:10 - next open tee time as of the previous thursday was 1:40pm

Been getting to play once every few weeks in this mild winter. Went out Monday while it was 60*, but with a 20 MPH wind. Hit the long woods/irons pretty well the first 9, but struggled the last 9. Hope the driver/ wood swing holds on until the spring.

Mild ??? It's 12 degrees out with 2 foot of snow on the ground ! If I tried to get out on my home course right now I'd be run down by the snowmobiles out there

When the weather Channel says its gonna be 40° sunny and no wind and it turns into -12 with blizzard conditions. I stopped watching the news long time ago, but after that day I turned into a meteorologist. Forecast out my window is Nice, shitty, or shittyer shit, then it's cold, cold as fuck, and I'm not going outside today fuck that kinda weather. All these apps and weather channels are just a suggestion of what you hope it'll be. 🙂

Spent a large portion of last season out at a local hole in the wall. Joined it this year (400 bucks/2 years). Low quality/low budget - but somewhere to play regularly (and odds are good that I'd have been there anyways with the two BILs).

He plans on being open by the 21st for some walking - I'm not sure yet. We did see nearly 70 yesterday - its snowing again today. He really could use like two more staff members and a bit better course maintenance and the place would be awesome. If I lived closer I'd work for free golf :)

Anyone else getting ready for the upcoming season? (at least for those of us who have to stop playing).

I'm about >< this close to ordering a set of sub70 irons soon - time for new stuff :D

I buy my Snells 5 dozen at a time - usually for a small discount. I always find myself having to buy twice a year. No shame here :D

I figure i need 5 dozen for the year (55 round avg). Just incase of a massive ball shortage i went overboard. May end up supplying friends too. There are lots of snells in my garage . Bridgestone tour BX and Maxfli Tour X. I tested those this year for GolfSpy and really enjoyed them. Gonna pick one to stick with this year i hope.

Funny story. Thought i ordered 300 golf tees for 28$ this winter.
