It’s no secret that we have a very mild winter here in the south corner of the United States but did you know there is a certain “how to” when it comes to playing winter golf here?
Here’s your no nonsense guide to fitting in like the rest of the country during the harsh mood of Mother Nature.
1 – Head out to the desert area and play a round of golf, warm in the sun, but with snow capped mountains surrounding your every view. It’ll get you in the mood to feel like you have some chill around.
2 – Make the first morning tee time available at your local course. When the possible frost delay hits run inside to the clubhouse or grill and have a hot toddy or Irish coffee. Very winter festive!
3 – Play your round using typical winter ground rules. Don’t like your lie? Pick it up and place it in a more favorable spot. No one said winter rules and preferred lies are only for rainy and snowy locales!
4 – Find the nearest simulator and get a round of 18-holes at Waialae Country Club in Hawaii. (Some golfers spend their winters playing indoors.)
5 – Wear pants while you play golf. Seems simple enough.
Stay warm my friends! 😉
