I love playing in a 15-20mph wind much moreso than on a calm day.

Where my enjoyment ends is when the gusts start hitting 25-30mph and it rocks me around during my swing. I always say I like just enough wind to move the ball around when its in the air but not enough to move me around in the middle of my backswing!

Bone density declines with age... time for some ankle weights.

JK. You're more tolerant than me. I HATE the wind. It should be outlawed.

We moved from the high desert of SoCal to Alabama to get away from the wind. The
only thing wind is good for is blowing smog into somebody else's neighborhood.

As my fellow Oklahoma WRX'ers will attest, I'm sorry but 15-20 mph isn't "windy". Us country folk round here would call that a nice breeze ;) Played here regularly when it is 25-35 mph, gusts over 40. I really don't mind wind at all, as long as the course is designed properly to play for the wind as many are here. You see many 450 yard par 4's facing north and 315 yarders facing south haha.
Agreed.  Living in Nebraska the last year or so has taught me what a windy day really is.  You either like playing in the wind or you'll give up the game.  It blows all day, every day.

Yeah, I played in such conditions once. Overall, it was ok. But, had an uphill, into-the-wind par 3 of about 200 yards. I didn't hit driver, but should have.

I did fish Eagle Lake years ago in October and it was so cold and windy that when we held up the fishing towel it blew like a flag and froze stiff. I had neoprene gloves and my hands still felt like they were on fire. No. I wouldn't play golf in that. Here...we golf in the heat. Fairly severe. Too often. Yuck. Our springtime lasts about 5 days...

I drove 30 miles west yesterday from Nebraska. Just into Wyoming. Nebraska is calm compared to Wyoming.

Two holes running roughly parallel.  Downwind, hit the three wood 100 yards further than the driver into the wind. And hit the driver better!

I donít mind a bit of wind (5-15 MPH) but that fun ends when the wind becomes hurricane-esque or if there is any rain involved. And likewise if itís sprinkling outside thatís fine, add wind and screw that noise.

I agree. Wyoming is...............well, it could be a bright sunny day in winter and the wind
starts to blow hard, blows the snow onto the road, the road ices up and gets treacherous
and not a storm in sight. Might as well be because you can't see through all the blowing
snow and the roads become a skating rink.

Have seen many pics with big trucks blown over laying on their side like they got tired
and decided to lay down and go to sleep. Those lighted signs they hang over the interstate
"high wind warning, high profile vehicles not recommended"....ya, no kidding, lol.

Use to drive I-80 a lot BITD. Glad we don't anymore........but did play Rochelle Ranch in
Rawlins a few times. A very fun golf course...........especially when the wind blows, haha.

I am a fan playing in the wind, i enjoying having to hit shots i normally wouldn't and taking that extra moment or two to plan out the shot and figure out how the wind will affect it.  

Also, i really enjoy true links style golf nothing else compares to it.

I will play in stiff winds and my home course is hilly and fairly open and at times the wind blows.  But I much prefer those calm late Spring and Summer afternoons and early evenings when I can focus and the ball goes where I hit it.  A really stiff wind is somewhat distracting to me and I tend to over swing, but with my schedule I cannot be that fussy.

Our part of Iowa is quite windy.  Although they can have some huge winds in Palm Springs (when no one in their right mind would be out), in general I got a kick out of visiting and a light breeze of 10-15 mph and some of the older guys complaining it was too windy - all what you are used to.  Always wondered what it would have been like to grow up playing in Texas or windy areas of Florida.  Anyway, I prefer it a little breezy, especially when it is hot.

I do enjoy a bit of wind as it mixes things up. New clubs on par 3's and new strategy to 4's and 5's is fun to me. Additionally, the satisfaction of getting one up into the wind and feeling like DJ as it sails is utterly satisfying.

Playing a match in the wind is the best.
Playing solo in the wind isn't near as much fun.

I have lived on both coasts and as far north as Chicago, and I have never seen a place with as consistent high winds as the Texas panhandle/high plains.

Yes absolutely, that goes for just about any tough weather conditions, less heavy rain.  I love playing bad weather golf and view it as a challenge!

As someone who lives in Hawaii and has to deal with trade winds all the time, I'm kinda just used to it at this point. Once they get over 20mph it bothers me a bit.

Having to hit an 7 iron to get the ball to go 130 yards is a little frustrating. Seeing a perfect drive in normal conditions be pushed offline gets a little irritating. I find that's it's really hard to get the direction of the wind down, and on the higher shots it's really hard to tell what the ball is gonna do once it gets up there and the wind hits it.
Got 14 daggum golf clubs, but none of 'em hit the ball straight.

I live in and grew up in Saskatchewan. It almost feels weird playing when there isn't wind. I find it made me a better player having to work the ball most of the time.

I get super sick of it especially in early spring and late fall, but kinda proud that I generally don't let it get in my head. Finished the year with three straight 76's, which this year was a better than average score for me, despite two of those days being in 25-30 mph gusts.

Which brings up another facet of playing in the wind. A nice consistent 15 or even 20 mph wind isn't bad. It's the days of 20 mph wind with 35 mph gusts that are killers. You really have to not be results focused. You can make a good club choice, put just the swing you need to on it, and then a strong gusts kicks up just after impact and you go from a birdie putt to in the lumberyard. Gotta just laugh off the score on a day like that.

If it's under 40 MPH and it's sunny, I don't mind. Above 40 MPH, I've gotten hit in the face with flying debris.

I go out looking, or make that hoping, to shoot my best round ever. If it's pretty windy I know that ain't happening.

I DO like to play in the wind when I'm playing an opponent a fair bit weaker (say 6 or more shots) as I feel I can handle the wind better that the udder guy,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, or when I'm one of the few low 'cappers in a field of higher handicappers - same, same.

He plays often in winds, and it is a Great leveler to those unable to master their ball flight.
