No. I don't like to play in the wind. But I do.

Played in a bracing 3 centigrade, 1-2 club wind in South London yesterday (With a couple of hail/snow showers thrown in) and loved it. I find that playing off feel in the wind and making adjustments, actually leads to better golf for me. Played to 10 yesterday which is my best round in about 2 years!

I don't like it, just because it's harder and I'm always going for my best score and wind makes it harder.  If I don't have anything on the line and I'm practicing or playing some holes just for fun, then it can be interesting, but I don't prefer it.

I play in 15-20mph wind almost all the time. Hate it.

Long holes get unreachable. I mean my drives only got about 350ish. Into the wind.

Love it for competition.  I hit the ball low and with borderline unplayable low spin, my advantage over other golfers is huge in the wind.

A one club wind is tolerable. More than that and wind tends to screw up my swing as I grip tighter and try to swing harder, both into and down wind. The last two days I played in wind that was a steady 25-26 mph with guts to mid 30's; Thursday the wind was from the South and yesterday it was a very cold North wind - proud of my scores given the conditions but certainly no fun!
