    Official OGBoards Golf Thread

    Figured it was time we had a silo for golf related discussion. Hopefully folks can use this thread for advice on courses, instruction, equipment, and all things golf-related. Feel free to share your great rounds/shots, epic failures, meltdowns, and any great stories.

    Bought a Living Social deal for Corbin Hills in Salisbury. Using one of them tomorrow. Anyone ever played there?

    Tip from a pro- always carry an extra pair of pants in case you get a hole in one. Har har.

    Anyone play here? I've always wanted to. I would bring great shame and dishonor to this golf course with my skills.

    I'm gonna be playing in Grand Cayman in 2 weeks with my dad on Christmas vacation, wooo. I'm not great, but I've improved immensely over the last year, so hopefully I can keep that up over the winter and hit the range a good bit. Hell yeah for heated range bays at a lot of ranges around DC.

    I'm jelly. Although, I think I'm starting to love actually playing during the winter in NC. For a max handicapper like me, it's nice to have the course to yourself.

    I've never been, so this is pure speculation, but Top Golf in Alexandria has to have them.

    I do know for a fact that there is one Olney, MD.

    Top Golf is fun. Top Golf is NOT a driving range.

    My rules for enjoying cold weather golf:

    1) Under armour is your friend. One cold weather long sleeve under armour shirt and a sweater are enough to keep you warm in 40 degree weather.

    2) Carry your own bag. At the very least walk. You'll be warmer.

    3) Play with friends.

    4) Carry a flask of some liquid fire.

    5) Accept that the ball will not fly as far as summertime, the greens will be frozen solid, and you won't make a single putt and just enjoy it for the fun that it is.

    Damn, you people are lame. I used to play winter golf in New Jersey before I moved down here... it was a max two putt if there was snow in your line on the green.

    Worth driving an hour? Probably not. However, it is definitely a fun thing to do if you get the chance.

    You've got to treat it as a night out, and not like actually trying to go a range to get better.

    I've been trying to golf twice a month here in Wilmington. Just have to pick the nicer days of the month. So far Nov. and Dec have been fine. We will see about Jan-Mar
