Ever spent a whole week looking forward to a golf game, only for the weather to call for a rain check? We’ve been there, and it sucks.
But, lucky for us, there are now a handful of places you can go where you can still play in the rain. Yes, you read that right. We’re talking about virtual golf.
Recently, virtual facilities have been popping up, which is is perfect for when it’s raining out. Though it may not come close to being on the green, it’s still great for keeping your game sharp.
