- The cooler temperatures don't hold back high school golfers from participating in an invitational at Inshalla Country Club in Tomahawk Friday.
The players are just happy when there isn't snow on the ground this time of year.
"Golf is such a loved sport up here too, so the cold weather doesn't bother us," said Prentice's Zachary Gonzalez.
The golfers say the weather won't stop them from playing the sport they love.
"I've played on varsity since my freshman year so my whole goal in high school almost. It's the funnest four years of my life," Lakeland's Daniel Donovan said. It's a little rough with the weather sometimes, but it's just so much fun coming out here playing."
"You've just got to enjoy yourself," Marathon's Zac Rihn said. "You start worrying about the weather, you're probably going to golf poorly. Just enjoy yourself out here and you're probably going to play pretty well."
This year's weather has allowed the players to get outside more.
"Past couple years we've been inside the gym, and then this year even if it's been a little colder, we've been able to get outside, which is a lot better than hitting the ball on the mat," said Rihn.
One key to playing golf in the Northwoods is keeping your hands warm.
"I go with my hands in my pockets a lot just to keep them warm because if my hands start getting cold, then that affects your golf game too," said Rihn.
