Can't wait for winter to be over.

It has been pretty cold and snowy in New England for the past two months. Can't wait for the weather to break. I am looking forward to actually playing instead of hitting off of mats in modified horse stables, or smacking balls into a projection screen.

eboos..... Feel your pain man.  This is our local, and believe it or not, this is a straight 24 inches plus.  And, we have more snow scheduled for the weekend.  Stay thirsty my friend.....


I have the itch as well. I just got fitted for a new 913 driver and the suspense is killing me!  The simulator and range isn't the same.

I agree!  We've had an up and down season so far here in Iowa.  One day its almost 50, the next day its in the teens and snowing!  Luckily though this week will be up in the high 40's so hopefully we can get out there Friday.  While I love practicing in my room, it would be great to go outside.  Until then, best of luck!

Amen to that ebooz! Cold here In Iowa too. I have cabin fever bad!! I need a golf fix! Can't wait to tee up some new ProV1x's this season!

Ill even settle for a sign right now.  I need a week where the snow pack isn't higher than the week before.  Hasn't happened since the beginning of January in Wisconsin.

I can't agree with you more. I live in south central Pennsylvania and I have been fortunate to get 3 or 4 rounds in since December but I'm getting the spring itch to be out on the course a lot more. I have a tournament scheduled this weekend but the weather is hit or miss for decent course conditions.

I hear your agony.. I drive by my course everyday on the way to work and it burns me to drive bye....I have been swinging every night in my living room and hitting the heated range twice a week....I hope Phil is right a spring is early this year...


Oh, the joys of living in the north.  Luckily, I'm far enough south that I can play most of the year.  Usually high 30s is the coldest for our area, so we just put on a few extra layers and play.

I live in Wisconsin... need I say more!!!  And I don't like snow!!!

I joined a winter league. Hitting into a simulator to keep the swing in check.  And later this month get in touch with my instructor at GolfTec to prepare for an EARLY SPRING...(we all hope).

Keep the swing in tune everyone!



Yeah...I mean I like the snow but I wish it would come at all one time not in pockets.  And, we're expecting a NOR'EASTER this weekend, damn no golf again!!! I guess I'll be cleaning my clubs again this weekend  :(


After the crazy amount of snow we had just got, I am looking forward to a session in the horse stables (heated outdoor range bays) today.

The simulator is there for something to do while you drink!!

I have escaped the cold and snow of South Central NY to the sunny warm climate of Southern California for a week to visit my son who's stationed @ Camp Pendleton. They live in Oceanside not far from the Titleist Performance Institute over on Avenida de La Plata. I have very fond memories of my fitting there back in January of 2011. I brought my clubs out with me so I can get in a little early practice and maybe a few rounds before heading back home on the 19th. This should give me a little head start on the gang back home. I'll be like a caged animal when I get back to the snow and cold till it breaks and we can get back out on the courses back in the Northeast. Keep swinging!

I don't want you guys to hate me, but I just played 18 holes in 75 degrees here in sunny south florida. 

Kyle P

You and me both.  I'm stuck here in South Dakota and counting down the days until the courses open back up.  Hopefully the groundhog was right this year and spring is right around the corner.  Sounds like we all are ready to get back out there and chase a white ball around.


Well the horse stables were closed yesterday, so I went to a shop and smacked some balls at the TV. Just to try things out, I grabbed some new white thing, and started off fairly well. Then my swing got lost. I then grabed a new red thing, and again started off well, but again lost my swing. Finally, I grabbed my own white thing, and once again started off fine, but then lost my swing. I wanted to tear my own head off at that point. The only thing that was positive about the day was that I didn't pay for range time.


I hear ya eboos, I live in N.E. South Dakota and got totally spoiled last winter, I was able to play at least 5 rounds every month.  We got just over 13 inches of snow last weekend, so I'm not quite polishing the clubs yet :)
April is getting closer, that is usually when we get to get out somewhat regularly.

Bret P

Neither can I. The weather did let up in January and I played twice. The greens were soaking wet on the first time I went out. They were frozen solid the second time. I did manage to post a good score. Too bad the only course where I live is open all winter is a crappy muni course. 

Bill L

Meeee too, I only got to play six days this week.



Tell me about it...I'm in NY, about 90 miles northwest of NYC, and I'm dying to get out. We had two days of 50 degree weather last week which melted almost all the snow. I drove out to a field that's sort of a mini kids sports complex and hit the past two days. While the snow has melted, the ground was completely saturated. My feet were totally soaked. Yesterday it was around 25 degrees, but I dressed warm and had a blast. Can't wait to put my new AP1s on the course!!

Greg P

I'm with ya.  The weather in Chicago has been relatively good this winter.  So far, I've been satisfied with a round about every other week when the temps get close to 40.  But, I just got back from a week in Hawaii and now I'm spoiled and longing for the warmth.

It won't be long.

greg p

OK, OK.  Don't rub it in.  But I don't want to hear any complaints when it's 110* in June, July, and August.

Mike B

I havent been able to play since the end of November. I live just outside of Boston, and can't wait for all this snow to melt. 

Cody D

It's not any better here in Chicago boys


I used to feel the same way that you fellows up in the nothern part of the US feel, but being retired and going South in the Winter is my escape from the cold and my enjoyment of playing golf all year round. Life is good.

God bless ya, Eagle.  Got a spare room you want to rent out?

James B

Thats what I like about Texas , YEAR ROUND GOLF :-)

Cole R

I feel you 100%!!! Living in Ohio you cant get out much in the winter to play golf......

Cant wait for spring!

Mike P.

Can't agree any more. Every day i go to my mom and Im like "You know what I REALLY want right now right?" and she just says "I know you want winter to end so you can go golfing."

Michael B

I know what you mean, I live in NY and can't wait. I would play if it would just get into the 40's, but mother nature is not cooperating.  

Tom S.

Well, here in MT at least I can get out and play winter golf on the public courses...They open it to walking only and what they do is reverse the holes...Tee off beside the greens and make the tee boxs the greens!! hey its something to keep the swing going!


More snow here in southeastern Massachusetts - I thought the groundhog said it was going an early spring!

Josh G

I hear ya. I was lucky enough to squeeze in a round in Florida and California when I was there for work, but now I'm back in Boston dreaming about sun soaked fairways. Here's to spring!


I even bought some new 913's and put tape on the face to hit into a net. I want good balls and springtime to come fast. New England weather is not letting go.


I played the front nine at Blissful Meadows in Uxbridge, MA on Sunday, and 18 holes in Cranston, RI on Monday. It was a bit chilly, but not too bad over all. Wow, my game is a bit rough though. My irons were solid, my woods were inconsistant but playable, and my pitches were off on distance either short or, most often, too long. My putting I couldn't say was bad. The greens were choppy, and I had the lines, but I was either leaving them short or lipping them out.
