    Playing on frozen GREENS

    Now this is the real harsh one!

    All day they were frozen solid. Never hit so many in my life.

    Hit them and saw them bounce or roll off nearly every time.

    So many shots lost!

    Played the Warwickshire kings course for anyone local. I can't recommend enough!

    After doing that a couple of times I started putting from anything up to 50 yards away and running in everything from 150 yards with bumped 7 irons.

    I personally relish the challenge, golf is golf if I have a ball, a hole and a stick.

    Re: Playing on frozen GREENS

    just another adjustment, with a touch of mental acceptance needed!

    partially thawed course is definitely the hardest, one minute it bounces the next it embeds!
    some white sticks,
    any old irons,
    Pick up balls....

    Re: Playing on frozen GREENS

    It's the one thing that does shut our course. Down here we don't often get frosts that freeze the greens deep enough to allow us on to them. Normally a frost means only about 1 inch of the ground freezes and it snaps the grass off at the roots if we walk on them killing the grass. If it does freeze deeply into the soil I play them the same as in the summer and pitch short letting the ball run up onto the green.

    So you don't like fairways that are baked hard either then?

    Its not enjoyable when you know you would have played an amazing shot but golf is golf. An beats doing anything else on a weekend. I enjoyed every other part of the round. If anything you know in your head there were a few shots left out there too :-)

    Re: Playing on frozen GREENS

    Just dont like playing to temporary greens which we were on today. As they are on the fairway, some plug short, some go off at absurd angles and some land properly. An absolute lottery, and I'd rather work on the quality of the swing and play when the course was fully open. You can't putt properly on temps and even chipping is hit or miss. Apart from the exercise and the company I don't see much point
    Happy Golfing

    different issue - but I agree completely!
