This is the seventeenth in a series on things to do to feed your golf addiction in the offseason:
Take A Winter Golf Lesson
A winter lesson or two just might be the thing to feed your golf addiction. You’ll get back in touch with your swing, and maybe even get a leg up on the coming season.
There are lots of reasons to like winter lessons. I’m partial to the fact that off-season sessions tend to be cheaper than those in warmer weather. One local facility with heated tees offers four lessons for the price of three—a deal unheard of in spring or summer.
Not surprisingly, the pros also are easier to schedule. In high season, many of our local teaching pros—and especially the better ones—are totally booked. In the winter, they’re much more available. I can get a lesson after work almost any day of the week.
I also find—perhaps counter-intuitively—that I practice more following a winter lesson than one in the summer. When all of my favorite courses are open, it’s hard to convince myself that I should spend my allotted golfing time pounding balls at the range. This time of year … well … I really don’t have a choice.
