Not the trooper I use to be but I'll say if it's in the 40s I'm game. Usually if it's below freezing the greens are frozen and they won't have the course open. Must not be that way everywhere.

I played about 7-8 holes one winter after we had a big thaw and most of the snow melted off. I was itching to play, so i pulled up to one of the courses that has a year round resturant business going that keeps it open. I told the guy at the bar I wanted to play. HE looked at me like I was nutts! He had me pay him $5 for the golf, and then he laughted at me!

I went out and played, and it was 8 below zero!

Divots weren't happening, as your club just bounced off the ground like it was cement! My biggest memory is of a few of my high irons landing on the greens and bouncing 20-30 high, as if they'd been hit onto a parking lot.


Having fed my need to golf, I withdrew early from the round late in the front nine near the parking lot.

It's all relative. If in the middle of winter there's a 40 degree day and no snow, I'll consider it. In the spring f it's below 50, it has to be sunny and no wind, and I'll walk. I'd rather not ride below 50.
