Golfers are generally hardy souls and there are a number in our ranks that will play whatever the weather, come rain, wind or shine all year round. These dedicated souls are the ones you see out on the course, brollies in hand in the middle of December, still cheerful and still enjoying the game.
Yet there is also a significant number of golfers who do put the clubs away for the winter. Some take a break because they don’t like playing in the poorer weather, or for others in cooler climes weather conditions make it impossible for play.
If this is you, then you’ll know that it is around this time of the year as the days start to get longer, that we first think about dragging the clubs out and heading back out onto the course when the spring weather arrives.
