Winter is here and the course is empty. The groups of ten hapless disc golf "enthusiasts" that normally tee off right before you get your bag out of the car are hibernating for the next few months. The air is cold and you know that the six pack of Bells winter ale will be a fine slushy, just like the ones 7-eleven used to sell. You probably look silly with so many layers on, some may think that you are doing your very best impersonation of a Jet-Puffed Marshmellow. You are only wearing one glove and have a pocket full of Hot Hands. The snow crunches as you walk to hole number 17's tee. After cracking the first beer out of the six pack neatly tucked into the spare space in your golf bag, you stand at the tee pad and think about the hole in front of you.
Everything about winter golf is slightly different. You need to beat the elements as well as the course. In the summer some sunscreen, a hate and water is all you need. To survive winter golf you need to be strong willed. It can take a lot to get off the couch in your nice warm house. I promise the if you do, you will not regret it.
