    I'm off all this week and absolutely itching to go for a round today but every course in Galway city and county is closed due to the frost. Doesn't look like the temps will get up much today so I won't be going anywhere:(

    Try Connemara Isles (small 9 hole course), it was open yesterday despite the frost.
    I was booked and paid to play Oughterard on Stephen's Day but the day was so horrendous with wind and constant rain I decided to cancel and forfeit my green fee. Pity as both the preceding and following day were both very nice.
    It's an awful time of year for golf, you get a nice sunny and calm day but the courses are closed with frost or alternatively you have to play in gale force winds and driving rain.

    Forget about today, hoping to get out tomorrow...

    Such frustrating weather I reckon tomorrow will be a right off too for the midlands. That's three rounds I haven't been able to play.


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 16,087 Mod ✭✭✭✭ slave1


    Seriously windy out there at the minute, anyone brave it today?
    Getting out in the morning so hope it will die down a good bit, unfortunately there will be a big temp drop too, me no likes cold+wind :(

    Was planning on a round in the morning but 15 m/s windspeed is just too much to have fun I think.

    Leaving it until Monday or Tuesday

    I'm due to play in the morning...I shall not be bringing the trolley!


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,088 ✭✭✭ ryaner777


    I'm due out in corballis int he morning as well. What clothing would people recommend for tomorrow ( very strong winds and no rain )

    My thinking is the tighter the clothes the better otherwise you'll be blown away.


  • Registered Users Posts: 30 ✭✭✭ Me boombastic


    Head south no frost here in limerick. All courses here are open

    Lots of thin tight layers I reckon, under armour all the way. Throw a pair of long johns on under the trousers too

    attempted to play today in the wind and rain but it was so disheartning..every second shot would be heavy and when a good contact was made the wind would just carry it away. It made me feel like my game was in a miserable state. Roll on the summer.


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,380 ✭✭✭✭ FixdePitchmark


    Due to play in am.

    But that looks unplayable ?

    Anyone else.

    where you playing ? I'm heading out to corballis. Either a PW or a 4i to the first depending on the direction of the weather.

    3 to 7 degrees in gusty to strong westerly winds. Take more than that to stop me, plan to play in the morning


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 5,361 ✭✭✭ Boskowski


    As much as I'd love to play but this is no fun. Here to stay for a few days too by the looks of it.

    I'm soft but.

    No will play. But a bit impractical .

    Played this morning in Seapoint with the foolhardy notion I would get in before the worst of it.

    It was lovely until the seventh, was tempted to walk in after nine, I knew it was only going to get worse but I had just hit a 6 iron to 12 feet so the lure of better golf ahead proved too strong.

    My umbrella snapped in two on the back nine (I'm never buying another brolly in Heatons; you get what you pay for) and then one of my trolley wheels buckled and the bag wouldn't stay upright.

    It was enjoyable in a twisted masochistic sense. I love golf :pac:

    Waited all week for a round and now it's giving gale force winds and out breaks of rain. Wouldn't mind but there one or two nice days in the week. Could have to bloody cancel, hate this weather.


  • Registered Users Posts: 934 ✭✭✭ pinkdoubleeagle


    Due to head to Mount Juliet tomorrow for a hour long lesson. Alarm set for 6. Not sure about it to be honest

    Not 100% sure but I would presume so as one of the lads was checking with thr course this morning and he sent me a text to say no golf.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,553 ✭✭✭ dan_ep82


    Cancelled mine last night, wake up this morning to a strong breeze and little else !

    Nice morning out there now if a bit windy.


  • Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 12,774 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Keano


    Yip, but at 8 this morning with the wind and a wet looking course they had to make a decision :(
