There can be passionate travel like in summer even in the wintertime, though people usually think of the season as cold, snowy and lonesome. The sports activities in summer can bring a totally different and exciting experience in winter.
Snowland Golfing in Switzerland
Sunhats and short-sleeved polo shirts are a must-have for golfing in summer, but they may not be necessary for snowland golfing in Switzerland. The heavy down coats, leather gloves and the hats that keep you warm would be the apparatus that help you stand against the roaring wind. When you swing the golf club, you would see snow splash instead of mud. What a beautiful picture! The splendid winter scenery of Switzerland covered by snow and mountain-filled horizons make it the perfect place for a snow golf tournament. Every January, the Snow Golf Cup is held at St. Moritz. The colored flags on the golf course give color to the snowy landscape.
When you swing the club, the orange golf ball would fly up to make a stark contrast with the blue sky, then fall on the white snow. You may try to look and find the ball through sunglasses and see if it lands on the right place. Different from the golf course in summer that is played on the greens, the winter course uses bright-colored golf balls and flags such as yellow, orange and pink to mark the holes and boundaries of different sections on the whites.
Another difference of snow golf is that the participant is allowed to start again for each hole. The distance between the holes for the 9-hole game ranges from 120 to 200 m, though it is 33% shorter than that on the grass, it is yet harder than the grassland counterpart as the freezing temperature makes it much harder to control each swing. The speed of the swing and golf ball may also be affected by the snow texture. It is no wonder that Russian President Vladimir Putin and American professional basketball player Kevin Wesley Love also fall in love with this challenging winter game.
