It doesn't normally get down to 34*F for extended periods of time here in Vancouver.
But I have no problem to play or hit the range just to be able to go outside and get some fresh air and exercise.

I've played 2 rounds this January that temps were in the 30s and probably 8 rounds in 2017 where the temps were between 25-40. Even a round in snow flurries

I go out back and hit balls almost every day into my big hitting net I have. The lowest temps I have hit are single digits. When it snows I shovel the hitting mat or cover it the night before.
So far I have broken a Prov1 in half, NXT in about 3 pieces, older Wilson Staff Titanium in half and a broke the cover off Callaway XHOT plus to where I was able to get the core out of the ball. This is all with either a 5 or 6 iron.

I practice on an outdoor range year around here in Stockholm, which is cold during the winter. With the right kind of clothes I have no problem, but I only hit drives and woods. The balls and mats get frozen and super hard so hitting irons hurts the hands, but no problems with woods.

I practice on an indoor putting green, but hate the indoor range where I can't tell what the ball is doing before smashing into the wall. Simulators are OK, but I still prefer outdoors. No courses open here during the winter, but down south I sometimes play in the winter. It's fun, but very different and you just have to take it for what it is.

I'm taking this winter off to rest some injuries from the summer, but I do it. Don't like it too much but I do it just to keep the swing going, I wouldn't call it practice. I feel more rushed when it's cold, and who wants to rush when practicing? Also, gotta watch out for range balls that are out overnight, the get frozen and they may break the face of a driver/3wood/hybrid. Happened to a buddy of mine.

You must live somewhere quite warm. Even Phoenix was in the 60's last weekend.

I live in Florida so I thought this was literally about a driving range with only 34 degrees of target options. The struggle is real.

Nope, actually I'm somewhere quite cold (Michigan). I will play down to about 48* as long as it is not raining, after that... I prefer to watch what I have saved on the DVR rather than freezing my arse off or having blue numb fingers these days.

When I got there even an Englishman looked at me like I was crazy.

Did anybody get out in the low temps too?
The Englishman who spoke to you has obviously been away from the cold for too long.

I'll be hitting the driving range later today after work. It'll be 34 around 7.00pm when I get there.

No worries.

I've played where I've hit a wedge that jumped like 20 feet in the air when it landed on the green, because the green was in the shade and still frozen.

I've played around freezing a bunch, but not any more. I am not a cold weather person at all.

Here in WNY its been like 38 for the past month: cold, windy, snow mixed with rain, the works. I've been out a lot in the stuff, probably hitting like 200 balls a day. Now I'm trying to cut back since I feel like a total hardo, but I get so neurotic about my swing that if I don't hit the range I' afraid I'm gonna totally lose it. Works the total opposite way lol, I keep getting worse over time.

I do it quite often, not for long though, because the balls just don't feel good. Like rocks that drop out of the sky. Even in heated stalls, which aren't really that heated.. haha

I did it last year all winter here in Pittsburgh. Heated bays but if you mishit a club it sure did sting your hands. Good way for me to learn to hit the center of the club face to avoid the sting

That's nothin!! 34 is nice out, specially for just a range session. Back in my 20s and 30s I'd go to the range here in Michigan in sub zero temps all the time, hit balls for hours on the weekend while my wife spent all our money shopping! EVEN golfed in sub zero temps here in Michigan...like hitting a cement parking lot with shots into the greens, bouncing balls 50+ feet into the air! Good stuff LOL...

NOW, no way I'd be out there!

Enjoy your addiction, it is all good.

34°??? That's way to hot to practice, I won't even play when it's that hot outside.

Edit... never mind. I didn't realize you were speaking American.

I'll practice and play in the cold.  I just make sure that I layer up.  Where I draw the line is if it's cold with 20-30 mph winds.  That makes it miserable.  The past 2 Saturdays in DFW were both cold and miserably windy...big difference from when I lived in Houston for the past 9 years.

So for me, I will practice and play in cold and not much wind, warm and really windy, but not cold and really windy.  When the wind chill is below freezing, that is a big nope for me.

I've played in the teens.  Green and fairways completely frozen.  Got home and all my skin was chapped and raw from the cold.  Moisturizer before you go out !!!
