Winter Golf Opportunities

To the dismay of many locals, golfing in New England is of course not a year-round sport. Harsh winters don’t allow for prime golfing weather.  Even with little snow fall, the cold winter weather makes for horrendous playing greens.

However, members of the Bay Club are still able to get winter golf in by traveling to spectacular tropical locations.

Each February, members along with Bay Club Golf Professionals head to warner temps for the annual Winter Golf School.  Range instruction and on-course coaching aimed at getting ready for the upcoming season are provided.  This year the group will be making their third visit to Turnberry Isle Resort in Adventura, Florida.

In March, members are provided multiple options to take their golf game “on the road.”  Separate Men’s and Women’s trips as well as a Mixed trip are offered. Members can travel with “just the guys” or “just the girls” and enjoy golf as well as great dining.  The Mixed Trip offers the opportunity for couples and friends to get away together.

This year the men will be traveling to the Grand Cypress Resort and the women will venture to Champion’s Gate for the second year in a row, both resorts located in Orlando, FL.   And the Mixed trip will return to the Dominican Republic at Casa de Campo for the second time.

These excursions are a nice opportunity for members to build camaraderie and gear up for the season ahead. It also allows the chance to travel to warmer climates and the platform to play various courses.

Maybe winter in New England isn’t so bad after all! Our members certainly look forward to the golf trips each year.

Paddle at the Bay Club

Tuesday, 3. January 2017 13:17

img_1647When the fall and winter weather moves in, members of the Bay Club make the shift from the tennis courts to the paddle courts.  Also referred to as platform tennis, paddle is similar to traditional tennis with a few key differences.  The court is on an elevated surface and about a third of the size, surrounded by 12-foot tall rugged fencing to allow for play off the walls.  The racquet used is different as well, a paddle with holes, versus a strung racquet for standard tennis.

We are very excited about the season so far, as many new players have been trying out the sport; coming to weekly drop-ins and tournaments.  Bay Club employee Matt Beatty has stepped into the role of Seasonal Racquets Activities Director to help with anything paddle related, including but not limited to helping members learn the rules and basic play.

We’re looking forward to continued success for the paddle program throughout the winter.
