    Re: Winter golf....absolutely pointless...tell me otherwise.

    Winter golf leads to more chipping related anxiety 🤔 not even bothering playing my home course till April 2018. Mainly waiting for full opening of the 2 new holes.
    Handicap 2015: Restarted August :-) 3 cards 12.0
    2016: 12.0 > 8.1
    2017: 8.1 > 5.9 (winter series still to play #qualifyers)

    Weather is just weather, golf is golf, they are not necessarily interdependent.

    I play all year.

    Re: Winter golf....absolutely pointless...tell me otherwise.

    I play all year around. With the weather being generally milder our course is rarely closed. We have some course protection rules but we are on full greens unless the ground is frozen, mostly on full tees but where they are shorter we're only talking a few yards on purpose designed winter tees. We played yesterday on a beautiful clear, crisp day. The Loch was like a mill pond, hardly any breeze, full greens running well and to a man, everybody who came in said it was a great day for a game of golf.
    The problem is more with the OP's course than with playing in the winter.

    Stating the obvious somewhat, winter golf is worth it if you enjoy it and is not worth it if you do not. The same rule applies at every other time of year too.

    If winter conditions aren't for you then the simple answer is; 'don't play'. I sit in the play all year round camp, but then I enjoy getting out with the boys whacking the ball, having a beer and some food.

    Played today and had full greens. Most were actually pretty dry sort from a couple in shady areas. Mostly grass tees, further forward and a handful of mats. On a day like today it’s not a great deal different to normal, just a bit shorter

    It isn’t proper golf per se but it can be a bit of fun. Our winter league is quite good, we’ll be playing am-ams, 4BBB, greensomes etc. It’s basically an opportunity to get out, swing the clubs and socialise.

    Course plays the same all year round


    Busier in the winter because loads of green fees come to us as their courses are all too boggy!!
    2016: Started Playing->23.0
    2017: 22.7->14.4
