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.

exit 8 northway center has a heated driving range

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

It's not a bad idea. However I would encourage everyone to think creatively... Can it be like a farmers market - but more? Like a farmers market plus something else? I visited Albany the weekend of the recent market there and really enjoyed seeing so many people in the park on a weekend. What could be done to set it apart from the other markets? ...
