5 ways to survive a golf-less winter

Posted by A.J. Petrulak on Oct 27, 2016 4:30:00 PM

You feel that? It's FREEZING outside. 

Unfortunately that means winter is right around the corner. So how is an avid golfer like yourself expected to survive 3 or 4 months without golf? Well you don't have to.

Here are our 5 ways to survive a golf-less winter.

1. Putt indoors

You probably won't be spending a ton of time at the course this winter so you might as well pull that putter our of your bag and bring in inside. 

Find a piece of the carpet or a rug that rolls a similar speed to an actual putting green. Set up a cup or even just a small target and hone in on your 10 foot putts. By the time the new season rolls around, you'll be draining birdies left and right!

2. the hotel room drill

Who knew a two-bed setup in a hotel room would make for the perfect swing drill? If you're on the road traveling this winter, give this simple drill a try.

3. Find a simulator

Not the real thing and not always the most accurate representation of an actual round of golf. But desperate times call for desperate measures for a golfer in the winter.


Find a nearby golf simulator and tee it up indoors with your buddies. Even though you might hit your 60 degree wedge 180 yards and your driver only 130, it's still a lot of fun and a chance to make a few swings.

Oh and there's usually a bar at these places.

4. Book a Golf trip

The easiest way to escape the cold, golf-less winter is to just get away. Take a trip with your golf pals to somewhere with warm weather and awesome courses.


Here are a few suggestions!

5. brave the cold


If you're feeling bold, brave the cold. Every once in a while we have a day in the high 40's here in New England during the winter. Make the most of this opportunity and head on down to a public course that's open year round. 

Less than ideal conditions give you low expectations for your game which often makes for a surprisingly fun round of golf.

The best part of the winter, though, might be the holiday season. If you're still looking for a place to hold your company or family party, you might as well check out our Holiday Menu Package. Plymouth Country Club might be the best spot for you and your crew!
