Now that winter is coming upon us, what is your "go to" when you are going to playing a round in the cold?  I'm interested to know what the best combination is.  Is one brand of "cold gear" better than another?  My current setup is below.

Flannel lined khakis
Camping sock made for up to sub zero temps
UnderArmour cold gear shirt for my base
Nike (thicker) long sleeved shirt
1/2 zip shell (if necessary)
Titleist stocking hat
Titlest winter gloves

If it gets extreme I have a footjoy rain gear that I can go to as well.

Under Armour compression tights, normal pants (chinos)
Under Armour base long sleeve shirt (typically loose fit)
Over that I have 3 quarter zip pull overs... 2 UA and 1 Nike.. I wear they snow shoeing generally.. lightweight, pretty warm...
If a coat is needed I have a UA Storm Vest.  If that isn't enough I have some thinner, wind proof jackets.
If its not windy and around say 45-50... I have a Ashworth golf hoodie.  Thin, flexible, pretty warm
Neoprene Winter Wide Receiver gloves.  Very warm, super grippy.

Hot Chillys tights as the base layer
Nike Basketball socks (they are thick and comfortable and fit in my shoes)
Footjoy premium rain pants.
nike pro compression top
polo
Nike quarter zip-up sweater
fleece gloves (dont wear a glove golfing so they keep my hands warm while I walk)
hand warmers
stocking hat

The long underwear, rain pant combo is awesome because it feels like I'm just playing golf in sweats so it's super comfortable.

On the absolute coldest I'll play, which is high 20's (F) if the course is open, more often low 30's for the course to be open, overcast and windy, here is what my combo will be.

Top:

Baselayer with turtleneck (Nike/Mizuno/UA Coldgear)
Golf shirt
Mizuno Windlite Sweater
Carhardt Winter hat
FJ Winter Golf Gloves

Bottom

Jeans if it is that cold covered up by my FJ Insulated Rain pants.

Most often it's not cold enough for Jeans though in which case I just wear shorts under my FJ Insulated Rain pants.

FJ Icons.  They really don't breathe much and keep your feet toasty.

Most often, if it's somewhere in the low to mid 40's, that Windlite Sweater is going to come off sometime during the round.  When you walk, it is simply that warm a garment.  When you walk, you really need to keep the wind off of you.  Temperature is almost irrelevant when you walk as you'll be building a sweat.  Blocking the wind is the most important part.

When you ride, you'll probably need more because you have to block the wind, which a good cart cover should help a lot with, and you have to dress for the temperature as you won't be building a sweat.  You'll just be trying not to freeze.

The only way to play really cold weather golf is walking.  You need to combat the cold with elevated body heat.  Those guys in carts always look and complain about the cold day when I'm walking around in shorts after 10 holes.

Flannel lined khakis with ZR goretex pants over top of those if really cold/windy, under armor cold gear mock, short sleeve mock or sportshirt as extra layer, then ZR goretex top or if really cold/windy my Ashworth fleece pull over.   For a more fitted look I go with my Nike Therma Fit top.  Don't see many of these Therma Fits but they are NICE.   Definitely my Titleist black wool cap.  And Taylormade cart gloves.

It rains here in the winter mostly. Can be windy also.
Use a '96 (?) US Open at Olympic Club breathable rain pullover along with Adidas Climalite polos and light wool socks for the Footjoys. If it is windy and rainy, JP'll wear these heavier blended black pants. Don't really care for playing in pouring rain, but a light drizzle is nice. Changes the courses up considerably it seems. Could be illusion though, like so much of life's proceedings.

Live in MI and play in December, Jan and Feb whenever the course is open... Usually wear regular golf pants, UA long sleeves, Short Sleeve compression shirt, any golf shirt and either a long sleeve cotton adidas jacket thing(if its windy) or just a sweater vest. always bring my titleist mittens and throw some hand warmers in them, but i always walk so its hard to not stay warm.

The key for me is toe warmers, hand warmers, and one of those wraparound back/hip warmers. Gimme that setup and some UA gear and I'll play in a blizzard.

A warm cap is key.  

UA Cold Gear is the best I have found.

Multiple thin layers works best for me.

An X-Box, bacon sandwich and a cup of tea.

If it's so cold that I need to wear more than some Galvin Green compression leggings and top, and a soft shell windstopper, and instead have to wrap up like the Michelin man, I won't bother playing.

Golf isn't fun when it's that cold, and I have found that being really wrapped up can play havoc with my swing.

How about a windproof pullover, normal pants, normal shirt, and a hat.   Then walk so you stay warm through the movement.

Would agree on the walking part.  The most miserable rounds I have played were in a cart.  Staying dry and walking are the most important things.  One thing about socks.  Don't make the mistake of wearing socks that are too big.  If they are too big for your shoes they will compress and won't insulate.  At work I used to wear boots that were a little big in the winter.  That way you can wear a thin socks for wicking of moisture and heavier socks over them and still have some room.

When it dips into the low 60s here in south Florida i might put on a short sleeved windbreaker. When it gets really cold (50s) I'll throw on a pair of slacks and maybe a light jacket

It is amazing to me how many of you layer up in layer upon layer to play in cold weather this day in age. All you need is the following:

Toboggan as we call it in the south
Baselayer compression shirt
Mizuno windlite sweater (that's it on top...nothing else to constrict your swing)
Golf pants
Rain pants over them
Wool socks
Mittens

That will keep you plenty warm and won't constrict your swing like all that layering will.

If its in the 20s or low 30s, add a cart cover to your cart and a Coleman cart heater.

Toasty warm.

Under Armour is where its at if you can afford it.  Most of my base layer gear is Champion though because you can buy it at Target for less than 1/2 of what youd pay for Under Armour and its just as good.
For the most part though, other than trading the shorts for pants and wearing a sweater/sweater vest; my cold weather gear isnt much different.  To me, it doesnt get, "cold" until its below 20 degrees and by then all the golf courses are closed anyways.
I grew up in Wisconsin, where we have real winters, so cold isnt much of a factor for me when it comes to golf.

Also, the UA Cold Gear "hood" is a lifesaver. It's like a ski mask that fits under a baseball cap.
