Played today in Hyannis. Hi 20's. Wasn't bad until the wind picked up the last four holes.

But, you played...
Quit your complaining about the last holes, you lucky, privileged busternerd!

I envy you!
And AFAIK, in some religions/beliefs, that's a Sin punishable by death. :cheesy:

But I wasn't complaining...just stating some facts! ;-)

It WAS nice to play again. I hope you get out soon mdgboxx!

Hey...be nice.

"Neither snow, nor rain, no heat.........."  I really did dress for the weather and take a walk every day for 31+ years.  If there's no snow on the ground, I'll play.  Got out 14 times in December.  Usually had the whole course to myself.  Way better than the treadmill at the 'Y'.........................the Mailman

It has been a month or better since I played and will usually play in some cold stuff. The wind and temps have been stupid here, but thank goodness tomorrow and Friday ends this long spell and I am gonna play from sun up til sundown.

Being a Mississippian, I can handle 100* temperatures with 100% humidity better than I can handle cold weather. If the wind is calm and mostly sunny, I would play in the low 40s. Factor in clouds and stronger winds and that moves to the 50s.

In December, I played on two days in the mid 30 degrees.  It was sunny, very little wind, and very pleasant.  Today, I had occasion to go to my course.  Roughly 3" of snow, overcast, and 23 degrees, I hit 4 balls on the practice range.  Tees were impossible to put into ground.

Still, it felt good to hit the four balls.  Normally, I think 40 degrees and little wind is my limit, otherwise too cold.

Mid to high 30's is fine if the wind is light.

Light rain is ok. Intermittent heavy rain is tolerable.

Steady heavy rain is intolerable.

Mid 90's and above sucks. I'ld much rather it be mid 30's.

I have been on the course when it started snowing. We continued playing. When the greens started to get covered putting got kinda comical.
The ball would gather snow as it rolled, come to an abrupt stop and fall to one side.

I fall under all these categories...

Especially preferring the cold as opposed to the extreme heat. Can't stand that...

I walked 9 on Friday and it was 38 with no wind and had to take my pullover off.  Played 18 yesterday when it got up to 50 with a good wind and was colder than the day before.  Some greens were frozen in spots.  All cups but 18 had ice in them.

As my rule. I usually don't play below 40 but Friday was beautiful. I hesitate under 45 and base it on wind and 50 is a no brainer.

Being in  SW FL we don't get that cold and around here 50 is considered cold.  Well, ahhh,  errr  not for me at least.  I show up last Sunday to play, temp is 50 and I am in a polo and shorts.   I have been living here for close to 16 yrs and dammed if someone did not accuse me of being Canadian!

Got a tournament coming up that I've been looking forward to for awhile, and the temps during the tourney are forecasted to be around 35F. I'm kind of hoping it gets postponed, but if it is still on, I'm layering up and heading out there. That is going to test my limits of acceptable cold.

Anything below 60*! Too many days here where I live where it's above that temp. Hell, I've never seen snow. LOL

Canadians here are freaking me out. I grew up in FL and live in GA, so I have no problem wearing pants when it's 95 degrees out and humid, but you won't find me on the course if it's below 40. I used to never play if it went below 55 or so, but I've toughened up in my old age. I also think I started to figure out this whole "layering" concept.

I think cold weather golfing becomes much more doable when you're walking. I played this past weekend, and I think the temperature was around 38 when we teed off but it wasn't that bad when you're carrying your own bag.

The thing that gets me more than the weather is that I feel so restricted if I have more layers on than just a golf shirt and a jacket. I hate hate hate feeling like my backswing is restricted. According to my stats, I'm averaging 8 strokes worse when I go from 2 layers to 3+ layers. Hopefully that'll improve with time, but it definitely tells me that I'm not ready to golf in Ireland anytime soon.

I played in 31 with a light drizzle and no wind earlier this month. It was fine after the first two holes. Esspecially since there was no one there.
