Golf during the winter?

golf club head in grassLucas emails:

This is my first winter as a golfer in the northeast. I know all of the golf courses are shut down for the season, but are there any driving ranges anyone can recommend that are amicable to the elements and allow me to work on refining my game?

Got a suggestion for Lucas? Maybe one those indoor virtual golf places? Please share.

The dome in Latham has a driving range and simulator.

Also lessons from an awesome Irish man.

Lucas,

Played Van Patten (Clifton Park) yesterday and it was in great shape for Dec.13th. They'll stay open as long as they can just expect frost delays in the early morning. Eagle Crest (Clifton Park) and Mill Run (Latham) are open as well.

Happy Golfing

Evergreen, Mohawk River, Stadium. Still open

[A]nother factor that allows some politicians to slide into corrupt practices is the overriding notion that if they hadn't chosen to become "public servants" that they'd be making mega bucks on the corporate world. Which maybe they would. But it seems to give them license (in their own minds) to exploit any ethical grey area to make up for that loss of income.
