Hopefully county courses will open up next weekend, supposed to be warm and dry for the next week. I don't know if I'll ever get used to the wait for the courses to go back in!!

Woke up this morning and winter is over! Now we move into my least favorite season. Mud and slop and wet and nasty season... Summer should be here by next week.

What annoys me most is that everyone defends the way they do things here. I've yet to hear 1 valid reason why Madison can't be like every other city and only pull the courses for the thaw.

"We can't pull the pins in winter because they will be frozen"
Every other place manages to do it.

"The courses will get destroyed"
No they won't, the ground is frozen solid.

"The course is used for sledding and XC skiing"
Yeah, and it's used for jogging/dog walking/exercising all summer, with 10x the DG traffic.

Photo from earlier today at Calumet Lake Disc Golf course. We just went over the 300 inch mark the other day.

I'm assuming you are in the UP. If so, how do you cope? I like winter and snow, skier here, but definitely like to dg in the spring.

Depends. Some of the sleeve/pin combos at my homeish course (Veterans Memorial Park, Florence, AL) draw water up inside and become immovable when it freezes - which, in fairness, is about three times a year. Roll Tide.
