While the casual golfer may not realize how important practicing their golf swing is year-round, dedicated golfers know how crucial it is to constantly be looking for ways to improve. However, living in Minnesota poses its challenges. We typically spend upwards of six months in the frozen tundra, battling snow and cold all the while trying to maintain a normal life and keep up with hobbies. As avid golfers know, continuing to improve your golf game during winter is extremely difficult because of snow, ice, cold, and other unfavorable conditions. Here, our golf professionals at Burl Oaks Golf Club will discuss some of the best ways to hone your golf skills during the winter.

Stay Active and Gain Strength

If you are serious about golf and want to make continuous improvements in your game, one of the easiest ways you can do this is by adhering to a strength and conditioning program. Or, if you’re not interested in becoming an elite golfer, simply staying active is an easy way to improve.


You can either create a strict strength and conditioning program to follow, or simply stay active and practice on occasion to stay in golf shape.

Visit our Indoor Golf Simulators, Go to the Driving Range or Setup a Practice Spot at Home

We have recently added two indoor golf simulators for our member’s use in the offseason.

Our members utilize these simulators for play, leagues and everyday practice.

If you live in an urban area, chances are there is at least one, if not several, indoor driving ranges in your area. You should continually visit indoor practice facilities to put in your training during the winter. However, if you don’t have an indoor driving range or other indoor practice facility near you, you can easily create a small practice area in your garage or shed. Simply set up a net or another device to catch your golf balls, then practice your swing as much as you want.

Continually Practice a Consistent Swing

Whether you go to the driving range, set up a space at home, or something else, you can always practice refining your golf swing. It doesn’t matter if you are consulting an expert, taking tips from a friend, or adjusting your swing to something that works best for you, constantly practicing your swing is the easiest way to improve. Additionally, you can improve your swing speed and power by purchasing a weighted club. By taking smart practice swings on a regular basis with a weighted club and not overdoing it, you can drastically improve your swing.
