About time to put the clubs in the corner

For those of us who live in the north it is a sad time of the year. Late October, early November is the end of golf season. This means the clubs go into the corner for 5 months or so. Just wanted to express my feelings on what it's like for those whose game goes into hibernation. I hope those who are lucky enough to live in areas that don't lose anytime to cold weather take advantage of it and cheers to low scores!

why? bundle up and play on until the snow falls. hoping for no snow this year! I'll play all winter long as long as the white stuff stays away.

with the cold winds and hard greens, it lets me work on different parts on my game.

Living here in Texas, this is the time of year that I get the most golf in.  I don't play much in the summer heat, but I sure love the fall, winter and spring.

just don't put baby in the corner :)

I know exactly what your talking about! I lived in Massachusetts all of my life and moved to Florida this past summer. I'm excited that my golf clubs don't have to go into the basement anymore! Plus I don't need to shovel the driveway!

I'm with you.  As long as there is no snow, ground not frozen and the course is open, I'll play.

Yeah Kevin, where I'm at in Ohio there is at most another week but there's rain in the forecast for the next few days and the leaves are bad.  So I gave my equipment a bath and put them to bed this afternoon.  Hopefully about February or March I'll head down to Alabama or Mississippi for a week.  Guess my first priority is politicking the wife with my Christmas list of new toys for next year.

Nicely done, Fred. 

"Nobody puts baby in the corner."

Okay, this is really sad when avid golfers start making reference to a chick flick from the 80's.

Hopefully, the season is not over yet. I don't mind temperatures around freezing depending on how much wind there is.  

That's hurts a lot........ Not that problem in San Diego!

Yep - Texas Summers can be brutal, but Fall, Winter and Spring make up for it. 

Not just yet!!! Here on Long Island I'd say we have just about one more month then it's time.

Very depressing!!

I don't know where home is for you Kevin, but here on the Connecticut shore, I've been lucky enough to play every month since March 2012.  Even when much of our state was covered in snow, 45 minutes to the east, in Rhode Island, a few courses were open.  Sure, there were some cold rounds, but an extra layer, some FJ winter gloves and the love of the game kept me pretty warm.

For those winters where snow wins out, it is a drag.  I hope you have an early spring!

When the snow falls, it's time to find simulator close by and wait for the melt. Practice putting and chipping in the basement.

I played one day last year in 9 degrees and heavy winds. One of the more memorable rounds I got in last year. There’s nothing like getting one in when the itch is bad. Big props for the FJ winter gloves. Those baby’s keep the hands from cracking. Great for the wet stuff too.

Mike, you guys need to come up for something for the shoes! Hands and feet are the only winter issues.

I'm here in North Jersey / NYC area and every time I think about having to wear thermals to play during the months to come I cringe.
