Join A Golf Simulator League This Fall. Washtenaw Golf Club Has Simulator League Spots Open Now.
Every Midwestern golfer knows the cycle. We spend the summer practicing, playing and competing in leagues. Skills peak in August. The weather turns cool, and the days grow shorter. League play comes to an end. Then the snow flies and the winter layoff begins. The clubs go in the garage.
That’s when all the competitive skills that we honed over the summer begin to deteriorate. By the time the snow melts in the spring, we’re rusty, and the cycle begins anew.
It doesn’t need to be this way, though. This winter, you can keep those skills honed by joining a simulator league.
This year, my home course — Washtenaw Golf Club — is running two ten-week golf simulator leagues. The first session begins the week of October 10; the second the week of January 9. League times are available from 5 p.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.
Washtenaw has three very nice simulator bays using GolfZon technology. The golf simulators have hundreds of courses available, including classics such as Pebble Beach, Bethpage and St. Andrews Old Course. More are being added every week.
Washtenaw’s simulator bays can handle up to 18 players in a session; larger leagues could schedule multiple sessions.
The bar and kitchen will be open for league times, adding to the fun. Playing golf in a simulator with a few brews and burgers sounds like just the thing on a wintry winter evening.
Washtenaw Golf Club Head Pro Zach Szawara says that the simulators are also available for casual play, and for special events, such as birthdays and bachelor or bachelorette parties. One of the GolfZon bays is in a large private room that perfect for upscale events.
If you’ve played Washtenaw, you know how well the staff treats its golfers.
For pricing and times, call the Washtenaw Golf Club pro shop at (734) 434-2105.
If you don’t live near Washtenaw, check out your local club. They may also have simulators that can accommodate leagues.
Make this the year you keep up your skills through the long winter months.
