For years I thought disc golf ended when those white flurries hit the ground. I would have my last round of the season with my friends when we all came home from college and played at Thanksgiving time. But about 4 years ago I realized I didn’t want to give up my favorite activity until March/April. So I started playing in the snow. Sabattus Disc Golf decided to open in the winter because there’s lots of folks who feel the same way. You won’t see a packed parking lot but you’ll find there’s a lot of people who want to play when there’s snow on the ground.
Today I want to share some advice that I’ve learned over the years and some tips and tricks from other people. My hope is that if you haven’t played in the snow before, that you’ll give it a try.
As always, dress in layers, bring a friend with you for safety and to help you search for discs, and drink plenty of water. Winter golf is a blast as long as you play responsibly and manage your scoring expectations. Just know some putts are hard to hit with cold hands and that your disc sliding on ice away from the basket is something everyone understands. I wouldn’t recommend anything to you guys that I wouldn’t do myself. Here’s a video of my dad on Hole 12 of the hawk. By the way we’re shorts people if you see us out there, we’re playing in shorts.
May your discs miss all the trees,
