Probably a better question is why shouldn’t you start now? Watching guys play golf in Hawaii and Arizona while we are dealing with Midwest weather can be difficult to take. As a bunch of golfers, Miles of Golf shares your pain, but there are some really good options for getting your game going early. We spend a lot of time and effort making our practice areas, teaching academies, and club fitting facilities weather-proofed, and frankly we can make golf comfortable at our facilities on all but the coldest days. Give it a shot and I assure you it will be fun while providing a jump start for your golf game once the playing season starts.
Weather Proofing the Miles of Golf Facilities:
- The teaching and club fitting studios protect you from the elements and keep you warm with large radiant heaters. There are walls on three sides and a roof. The only opening is a garage door that opens to our range. We are a big believer in seeing the full flight of the ball in club fitting and instruction.
- The range balls for practice, instruction, club fitting are all heated so you never feel like you are hitting a cold stone.
- The shelter/range area is also protected with walls on three sides and a roof with one side open to the range. Keeping you warm are radiant heaters.
What You Can Do to Get Your Golf Game Off to a Fast Start?
- Take some lessons. Now is a surprisingly good time to take lessons. By the time the playing season rolls around you can feel comfortable with your swing changes. A big problem with lessons during the season is reverting back to what is comfortable when you play. It takes time to implement most swing changes.
- Practice. Get the rust off your golfing muscles and if you are taking lessons, work on your swing changes.
- Test out the new equipment. All the new gear is pretty much out for the 2015 season. You probably have some thoughts on equipment changes you need to get your bag in shape for the new season. Remember MILESAPALOOZA is a great event for trying all the great, new 2015 gear with three consecutive Saturday’s of demo days featuring all the club manufacturers .
