Winter Golf in Lancaster County

Real Estate Agent with Prudential Lancaster Real Estate

I played golf today and though it hadn't started snowing yet, it was around 33 degrees or so.

It really wasn't too bad except for the last 4 holes when the wind picked up. Wearing lots of layers and a brisk pace kept me warm. 10 of us played today and it was fun to watch lousy tee shots turn into amazing pars ... and visa versa - nice tee shots but approach shots took an awkward bounce into the rough, trees or bunker.

On one par 190 yard par 3 my tee shot was aimed at the hole ... however it landed short of the green and took a big hop over the green onto the frozen pond. I wasn't sure if I could hit from the pond but since bigger men hit from another pond earlier and my friends were watching and coaching me to go ahead and hit from the pond, I did. I trepidly stepped across the ice and took a swing and my ball landed about 15 feet above the hole which wasn't too bad for an ice shot.  Made a bogey but it was fun and I may go back later this week to skate on the pond as it seemed to be fairly smooth.

It did feel good to get out and enjoy the fresh air.

Roy - it is usually warmer in MD than here. I lived in Silver Spring & Fairfax/Vienna for 8 years many years ago. Love the area and I learned to play golf there. I just love the sport.
