Your 1st Round of 2018


Recommended Posts

Today was my first round of the new year. I've only played two rounds since just before and right after Christmas. Doesn't take long for me to build up some rust I suppose. Today I struggled on the front. Drove the ball well but my approaches, chipping and putting were off. I went out with a 44 including 2 doubles. On the back I recovered a bit without any doubles - one bird and in with a 36 for an 80. (Par 70 course)

 

I'm playing again in the morning around 10. The forecast calls for 67* and breezy - 10-15+ mph. I expect to play much better.

 

How was your first round of 2018?

Lake Superior is expected to have ice till JUNE. Course opened in April last year. I'm guessing mid May at the earliest.

Feeling your pain on the west end of the Upper Peninsula. I always consider April golf to be a bonus. Hoping to grab a round or two during some travel this spring.

Haven't played yet, but I'm planning to play 2-3 times in N. Florida. I'm hoping to get in at least two more range visits next week so I'm ready!!! Can't wait.

I might be leaving in June-July. But we should try to get a round in before that.

Still  in the teens here, but temps are forecasted to hit 40's and 50's next week, but with some rain.  I'm sure that  will be enough to bring out some in shorts...ha

 

Dont' know if I'll  make it out, maybe 9 holes on the day it  hits in the 50's but this is my busy time of year believe it or not.
