We have all fallen victim to the winter blues. Wet, cold, foggy conditions in Tulare County stop most of us from coming out and playing, nevermind taking time to practice on the range. As the days get shorter it may be more difficult to come hit a bucket after work, or spend just a little bit of time on the putting green figuring out why you keep missing those three footers.
The internet is filled with all manner of gadgets to help you keep up with you swing at home. Nets, simulators, foam balls, things with strings and VR coarses all to help you keep things dialed in. All the gadgets in the world will never duplicate the beauty of mother nature and hitting a ball of grass; then watching it climb through the air, turning ever so slightly as it begins to descend.
We have added lights to our range in an effort to help extend our range season, and hopefully keep the rust off through this winter. We can’t stop the rain, and the Tule fog will always roll in, but maybe we can stop your handicaps’ annual climb back up. The lights will be on starting at dusk and stay on at least until 9 during the fall. We haven’t experienced a cold winter with the lights yet, so we will have to work that out as time goes by.
Have you ever hit at night on a lit driving range, or do you plan on visiting us and trying it out?
