If we should get a long stretch with no snow we might try to get out. Then there's the problem of trudging through thigh deep snow.
I'm in Minnesota, yet my only thought reading your post is....why the hell do you live there?

The Keweenaw Peninsula IS God's country.

Coincidentally, Innova put out a winter related article recently. Very Innova product-slanted, obviously.

We never got snow quite like that here, but used to get plenty. Now we barely get any at all. Most winters we could play almost every day.

Because often, places that look like that in winter, are utterly perfect in summer. I live in Lower MI and Keweenaw is unbelievable in the warm months. Breezy and warm when lower Michigan is hot and sticky.

You're right, I should do that. I don't think I'd want to walk an 18-hole course on my own to hang glow sticks on the baskets and then circle back to play. I see glow league stuff posted all the time in my area. The only thing for me is my work schedule makes it difficult to plan rounds in advance. I usually just grab a round when I can steal a couple hours here and there on short notice.
