Winter Weather is here! Stay on top of your golf game.

When the snow starts to fall and the temperatures start to drop, golf courses around Minnesota close their doors for the winter. Even though your favorite golf course, like Edinburgh USA, may be closed for the season that doesn't mean you should ignore your golf game. There are exercises and activities you can do that will help you stay on top of your golf game during the long and cold winter months. If you are looking for ways to keep up on your golf game, the following are some activities and exercises you can do. Take Up Yoga It might seem odd that yoga and golf are connected, but they are. Yoga will help improve your balance and even teach you how to relax and unwind. These are two things that can dramatically improve your golf game. In addition to helping to improve your balance, yoga can also increase your flexibility. Practicing yoga can help you increase your flexibility in your back, legs, arms, and shoulders. Increased flexibility in these areas can dramatically help improve your golf swing. Practice Golf Swings in Front of a Mirror When you are out on the golf course, you don't really get a chance to look at how you are swinging your golf club. This can cause you to keep playing with bad technique. During the winter months you can practice your golf swing in front of mirror. The mirror will help you spot any problems you might have with your golf swing. Once problems are spotted, you can spend the winter working to correct them. Visit an Indoor Driving Range The outdoor golf courses may be covered in snow and ice, but the indoor ones aren't affected by the weather. Find an indoor driving range where you can go and practice your golf swing. After all, nothing is better than actually getting out there, moving around, and hitting the ball. Increase Your Strength by Lifting Weights You don't need to look like a bodybuilder to play golf. You do, however, have to have a lot of upper body strength and core strength. You can get that by visiting the gym and lifting some weights. When visiting the gym, you can focus on upper body strength and increasing your abdominals. You can also work on strengthening your glutes. Strong glutes can help a golf player with their game by increasing their balance and giving them more power behind their swing. After the snow has melted and you are ready to hit the golf course, stop on by Edinburgh USA located in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, and get in a game of golf at our beautiful 18 hole course. Edinburgh USA is a championship golf course located just outside of Minneapolis. For tee times and more information visit us online at
