I am playing in a tournament tomorrow with my dad and a couple of other guys. The weather forecast is for mid 30s and sun when we tee off, warming up to a high of 50 by mid afternoon.   My dad and one of the other guys are thinking about not playing because of the weather.

This got me thinking, what is the coldest weather that you would play golf in?

So far this year, I have played in 25 degree weather with a wind chill of 8, but I am a bit golf obsessed.

I dont play below 40 degrees, ground just gets too hard in Ohio.  With my SS I'd snap a club in the dead of winter.

I think the coldest I've played this year is around 30 with around 10 MPH wind and it wasn't bad. As long as the wind isn't going 20+ MPH and there's no snow on the ground, I will be out there if I have the free time! Are you playing tomorrow in Olathe? I live up north near Tiffany Greens and we still have snow on the ground that definitely won't be melted by tomorrow.

If I have to wear gloves while I'm not hitting a shot, it's too cold to play.

Depends on the time of year for me I guess. If it's in the fall, i'm usually not as desperate to play, so depending on the wind I'll play down to the mid 30s. Once wind chill gets it below 30, i'm not playing. In the spring, i'm just pumped to get out and swing my sticks. So if there's no snow, i'm in my back yard swinging and hitting wedge shots. Once the course is open, I pretty much will play whenever I can regardless of weather. Living in Minnesota, the winters get long, so when you can finally play, you just play and be happy.

I agree. As long as the wind isn't blowing hard, you can play in 30 deg weather pretty easily. Once you get wind above 15 MPH and temps below 30, it gets pretty cold.

The snow isn't expected to melt off until late afternoon or even Sunday in Olathe.  I am playing in a tournament in Newton tomorrow.

Depending on how desperate I am to play, I typically want the afternoon high to be at least 40.  Also, if its windy, that's a different story.  If its windy I'd like for the daytime high to be at least 50.  Any colder than that and my hands get so cold it is pretty much useless.

I have actually played while snow was falling, but I was in high school at the time and all I did was play golf.  Not sure I would do that again.

Also, for what its worth, I live in the Upstate of South Carolina so I'm not really in that cold of an environment relative to those up north.

Being a Brit only work in Celsius but I don't like playing anything less than 10 degrees really, it's always windy so not much fun lower than that.

Just looked outside, snow has melted away quite a bit. I'd call Prairie Highland if I were you and confirm course conditions.

Where is the course? Around here, the supers worry about frosted/frozen greens.

side note: that's one wide foot.

hateto3putt, this is in central NJ, (Mercer Oaks),we don't allow play on frost, but frozen is OK. The entire course will be frozen tomorrow, to me, its not really golf, but these people always tell me there's nothing else to do, so we're here.

I think Canadians will easily win this one

19* F is my best guess  (-7*C) with the windchill

Had to turn the sprinklers on the greens to get rid of 3" of snow.  It was a big money scramble and we had to play after all the calcutta wagering the night before

I've actually played on what felt like colder days.  Put the temp at 33 and throw in 40 mph winds winds from the North and toss in rain/hail/sleet mix..  I have done that in a 7 hr round before .. brrrr

I think Canadians will easily win this one

19* F is my best guess  (-7*C) with the windchill

Had to turn the sprinklers on the greens to get rid of 3" of snow.  It was a big money scramble and we had to play after all the calcutta wagering the night before

I've actually played on what felt like colder days.  Put the temp at 33 and throw in 40 mph winds winds from the North and toss in rain/hail/sleet mix..  I have done that in a 7 hr round before .. brrrr

Holy crap!!! I would rather sandpaper the posterior of a Badger in a phone booth than play golf in that kind of weather.

Maybe California has spoiled me...I don't want to play if its below 40. But if its a tournament I may make exceptions as long as it warms up. This weekend my low is 37 and high of 64 but it should be about 40 when I tee off. Lets hope it's warmer!!

35 degrees is my limit.  As long as when I hit the green (it does happen every now and then :swoon:), it stays there and doesn't bounce up like it just hit the cart path....I'm playing!

I'm in Quebec. I don't have a temperature limit. I have a snow accumulation limit. I'll play dressed like Nanuk of the North if I can find a course that has a bare patch. On the other hand, there are days I won't play because it's too hot...
