NJ here. Most of the nice privates closed Sunday. The other publics stay open until Dec 1 usually, with a very few staying open til Dec 31. Usually opening day is April 1, but many times there's still a bit of snow around, or the ground is still frozen a bit. I usually don't get out til May.

I think this year I'm going to take a golf break. Last year I golfed pretty much the whole year, playing indoors on a monitor during the snow months. My body never really got a break and I could tell by the end of the summer I was kind of sore and stiff for longer than usual. I think taking 3-4 months off will be good for me, mentally and physically.

I spent a year in Jersey (Plainsboro, just outside of Princeton) back from 8/05 to 10/06. I played all year then, public course. As long as there wasn't anow on the hround, I played.

I remember specifically Cranbury Golf Club being open as long as it wasn't snowing or frozen.
I live in this area, I don't know of ANY courses that close for the winter, public or private, as long as there is no snow or ice, they are open all year. Courses in South Jersey are also open all year.Playing today in South Jersey, 51 degrees & sunny, not much wind.

We are closed.  Always a sad time of the year.
Time for tinkering in the golf room / at the workbench / and my club's indoor hitting studio.

Every year when the season ends I got through about a week long depression looking for jobs in the south that could allow more than 4-5 months a year for golf.

We can play all year round where I live, but January and February get a bit dicey. I played in February when it was 2*C and windy. Like you said, OP, the ball goes nowhere. Such  a huge difference from playing when it's even just 20*C. On a good day in January or February, it might poke up to 10*C, but golf in those months a bit of a lottery.
December and March are also a little luck of the draw, but I would say there's more chance of decent weather than not.

i played  in Ulsan,Korea  through the winter maybe a short break  about  1 month-6 weeks

The winters  there are cold but very pleasant,a far cry from a Scottish winter,temperatures may be similar  but the wind chill/feel is miles  different

They're a hardy lot up there. The whisky helps - though probably not with golf :)

The ground hasn't frozen here yet, so you can still push a tee into the turf.  But if it gets much below 40-45 with wind forget it.  I just bought plane tickets to Arizona for a couple days in January and I will be the first to raise my hand for any business trips in the south.  If I could figure out the hibernation thing I would.

Canadian golf: winter, mud season, bug season, mud season, winter.  It's a wonder SAD doesn't kill everyone.

We are closed now but it was a pretty good season: Got out on March 29 through to oct 26. Little rain, very few mossies, just a bit of smoke from the fires. Wore my rain gear twice.

Love to live in a year round climate but need a job

Main course closed it out with last rounds today.
Wish they waited just one more day but the weekend forecast isn't pretty with rain, cold and sleet coming in the afternoon and big temp drops for tomorrow into Sunday.

Wait a sec - I played in that last weekend. Maybe there is hope for one more run up at Shepherd's.
