I found this article interesting and started wondering what the worst conditions I've played in....Naval Academy golf course in Annapolis. 26 degrees and snow started pouring in on the 15th but decided to finish.

I cannot say I have played in anything too horrific as I have no interest in knowingly playing in that kind of weather. The worst weather I ever played in was the Ocean Course at Half Moon Bay on Dec 24th 2015. The weather basically rotated three different times from pouring & windy to overcast & windy to sunny & windy. So I basically had 9 changes of weather in a 3 hour round.

Between the heavy San Francisco ocean air and the wind blowing there was one 370 yard par 4 I couldn't reach in regulation if my life depended on it haha. I leaned an important lesson that even with the wind at your back the heavy ocean air still knocks the ball down pretty quickly. Still had fun though.

Round at a course called Le Diable in Quebec up in the mountains in October. We got rain, hail and snow in the same round and the temperature was around 3-5 Celsius

Either that or my bachelor party when we played in pouring rain for the entire round. We were pretty drunk though

Probably when we went to Scotland last May.
We had one free day on our schedule so I booked a tee time well in advance.
When I got there it was howling wind and raining. I was a little early, but was determined to play a round of golf in Scotland so I asked if they minded if I headed out early.
They told me if I was mad enough to play in that weather then go right ahead. About 8 holes in the rain turned to snow, which lasted until around hole 16.
It was the coldest, most miserable weather I've ever golfed in, but I stuck it out.

End of April this year. Brother got married in Oklahoma. Went to dfw area with family the day after the wedding. Nasty storm blew through the day of the wedding. Played the day after the wedding in ft worth in 40mph winds. Shot 83 (I'm a 2) and was rather happy. I made an 8 or 9 on a par 5 that was dead into the wind. Drove it into a bunker and took 3 shots to get over the lip. Kind of dumb,  but oh well.

- Heavy rain the whole round. I drove about 2.5 hours to play that 1 round so I was playing no matter what. Wouldn't do it again.
- Heavy wind. Not really enjoyable but the round was so expensive there was no way I wasn't going to finish.

Funny you mention this. When I was still living in New England I went to Mont Tremblant for a golf vacation and I got my one and only hole in on the 12th hole at Diable. Hence my screen name mark174ace. Too funny.

Forgot this one...played at the K Club about 2 weeks before the Ryder Cup in 1996. 35 degrees, rain blown sideways by the 30+ MPH wind and we had no rain gear.  Quit after 11-12 holes as it was just unbearable.  Don't remember walking off a course any other time.

About 15 years ago in South Jersey at Harbor Pines Golf Course in late March.  It was 38 degrees and pouring so our group figured we would stop and get our raincheck before heading to the casinos in AC.  The staff at the course was outright rude and said no rainchecks, so we bundled up and got soaked to the bone and were freezing and lasted 9 holes.  Nothing was open at the course because of the weather so couldn't even get a cup of coffee.  For several years I made a point of finding any golf course review website and ripping Harbor Pines to shreds.  Never even considered going back to the course.

No easy hole! That's a doozy given the entire left side falls off a cliff!

PAT in 1980.

First go round was early April in Indiana - Fox Prairie GC in Noblesville. Had to leave at 5 am to be at the course by my 8 am tee time. Got there, and it was a sleeting, windy, rainy mess. The PAT was cancelled, but the course let me and 2 others out to walk. We were soaked before 50 yards off the first tee, but none of us had seen the course before, so....we played on. Had a pretty good $5 game going as well....but, 2 hours, 9 holes, and 38 degrees later...we quit.

PAT was moved to early May, and went back. Delighted that the other 2 guys were part of my 4-some, so we had a pretty good day...excepting multiple rains delays.

36 holes and 5 rain delays later, we finished....and, the 3 of us (once again, a pretty good $$$ game going) all passed easily. We were more interested in not losing money, so it kept our minds off the "pressure" of the PAT.

Haven't been that wet for a very long time, and don't plan on it again for the foreseeable future, either.

Oh....junior year of HS. Snow storm started about our #3 hole...by #8, you couldn't putt, as the snow was about 3" deep on the greens. No one told us to quit, but we just decided to walk in.

I've a rule of only playing in only one bad condition.  Cold, wet, rain, only want to deal with one at a time.
However, I play in an event every December in North Carolina where the weather is a complete crapshoot.  Can be 65, sunny, and calm, or can be 35, rainy, and windy as can be.  It's only been cold, windy and rainy all at once one time in my memory, but we played.  It sucked.

did you get a hole with wind to your back? how long was that drive??

I don't like to play in wind/rain/cold all at once. I can keep heat in my hands and my body is warm with some of the tech clothing that is around nowadays so i'll play if it's two out of the three. windy, cold and rainy makes it really miserable. that being said, it also depends on the course.

played a course where it started dumping snow. not too windy so I kept going. it started when I teed off 8. by the time I teed off nine the snow was covering everything. it was like a blizzard amount of snow and even with an orange golf ball, I could not see the ball in flight or land off the driver, walked around but never found the ball. walked off after taking a "snowman"....on the score card.

Played at Mars Hill CC about ten years ago. Dad and I looked around after 12 holes and found it curious we couldn't find any golfers on the course as we came back up over the hill. We get to the rise and a small tornado had touched down in the field adjacent the course. The sound of the horn hadn't reached down into the valley where the back 9 was.

Five years later, we were playing at Aroostook Valley when another came down and cut a path right through the course.

Cypress point... driving rain started on 2.  By 3 everything was completely saturated.  40 mph winds and just a cold (45*) wall of rain.  Greens were flooded out by the 4th hole.  We kept going.  They ended up closing the course for the day but since we teed off it was our choice apparently.

It was absolutely miserable but worth it at the same time.  Early in the back 9 nine, the clouds parted and the rain stopped.  The cold and winds kept up but we got to play the incredible holes in dry weather.

I hit a driver on 16 into the teeth of the wind and was unable to clear the ocean.  I actually hit 3 just to try.  At the end of the round the clubhouse laughed and comped our rounds.  The pro said it was maybe the worst weather he had seen someone complete a round in.  We were the only group to get on the course that day.  

I also played in a tournament in Columbus in April during a hail storm.  That was awful (and painful).

One stands out for me. Royal Birkdale in 92, junior event in summer and it was horrendous! Drove into the carpark and my so called caddy called dad went....you're on your own pal!
But it's a day I remember as I won a prize with a first round of 93!!! I kept going and only 5 didn't NR,  I think I had one ball left....to this day I've never played in wind or rain as bad

Meh. I live in the UK. We'll play in any two of the three. It's a rare Sunday when the weather keeps us off the course :)

The only time me and my mate gave up was winter before last at Rye Hill, UK. It started off misty then became foggy. As there was no one else on the course we continued anyway. It got colder and colder and eventually it became freezing fog. By the time we'd got back to the 10th we'd discovered the limitations of 'water proof' golf gloves and called it a day.

The other memorable day was at Feldon Valley, UK. It was late spring and just after we teed off the first the heavens opened and for twenty minutes it poured. Just as we were considering giving up the clouds cleared and it became a gorgeous afternoon (the weather forecast had suggested as much which was why we had stuck with it). In the end it was a wonderful day to be on such a beautiful course but I can tell you that playing 16 holes of golf with wet underpants is not a pleasant experience :-/

A tournament the Wednesday before Thanksgiving in Las Vegas. Temperatures in the mid 30's and winds 30 to 40 mph.  Lots of quitters that day.

I have three really memorable days when it comes to worst weather I have ever played.

I played the Gleneagles PGA Centenary Course in 2015. It was a day organised for volunteers at the 2014 Ryder Cup. It was in March and a four layers of clothing job. I was in the second or third match out and from the 4th or 5th hole it started to rain and that eventually turned to sleet and then to snow. My biggest memory from the day was walking up the 13th hole and from tee to green I had grown about an inch in height as the snow began to accumulate on my spikes. Never been so happy to get in to the clubhouse and couldn't have wished for a better clubhouse to get into with all the facilities that they have.

Beyond that I remember playing a match when I was 14 or so at my home club. It was bitterly cold and rainy. We were young but one of the guys that we were playing with was crying as he walked down the 18th hole because it was so cold...and he was just about to get beaten.

The only other one was just wind but the craziest wind I have ever played in. It was at Nairn Golf Club and in the first match out, three of the first six pins had been blown out of the cup it was that windy. There was a par 3 which played 175. I usually hit my 3 wood about 250-260. I nuked a 3 wood and came up short. Just crazy wind.

Although I have played in heavy rain, extreme cold, and light snow, the answer to this one is easy for me. October 3, 1979: I am a first year high school teacher and a group of us decide to go out for 9-holes after school. The sky looks threatening but we are young and enthusiastic about swinging the clubs. The wind started to howl and by the 8th hole, we could hardly keep the ball on the tee. The 8th is a short par 5 of 495 yards. My tee ball left me less than 100-yards from the green. Yup, a drive of approximately 400-yards thanks to an incredible wind gust. We finished the round in the nick of time. THE TORNADO swept through the golf course destroying more than 500 trees that were in its path. If you GOOGLE the Windsor Locks Tornado of 1979, you can read about all of the destruction it caused. We were crazy to be out their but survived our ignorance.

Have you ever had a guy comment on one of your solid drives, "That's the best you've got."? I smile to myself and think, "nope", I once hit one 400-yards.

I had played golf in almost all weather condition offered around the region but, I am not stupid to play golf near a run away wild fire.  And definitely not in Antarctica.
The very worst weather we played in was this tournament;  the frost was on the ground when we teed off , hail soon followed after a few holes and snow at the turn, Sun did have a brief appearance but windy and rained the rest of the way.  Everyone was sticking out to finish the round.  A big dinner and a couple of drinks had warmed us back up.

An F4 Tornado, I think Moonlight may have won this thread.

Played in a tropical storm while on the island of Bermuda.  70MPH winds.  Only idiot person on the course.

did you get a hole with wind to your back? how long was that drive??

I don't like to play in wind/rain/cold all at once. I can keep heat in my hands and my body is warm with some of the tech clothing that is around nowadays so i'll play if it's two out of the three. windy, cold and rainy makes it really miserable. that being said, it also depends on the course.

played a course where it started dumping snow. not too windy so I kept going. it started when I teed off 8. by the time I teed off nine the snow was covering everything. it was like a blizzard amount of snow and even with an orange golf ball, I could not see the ball in flight or land off the driver, walked around but never found the ball. walked off after taking a "snowman"....on the score card.

There was a hole straight into and downwind.  The into the wind hole was a par 3 about 160 yards.  Hit driver and came up woefully short.  The downwind was a par 5 around 500 yards.  Hit the ball high and the wind and hard fairway the ball went well over 425 yards.  The cross winds were the toughest as there was no idea of how far it would move the ball.
