I live in Chicago. My coldest round was on a day with a high of 28. It's surprising how warm, layering and some pocket warmers can keep you.

I live in NW Florida.  It's hilarious to hear people's misconceptions regarding the temperature here.  

Our normal Jan & Feb weather is 40°, overcast, N wind, & humid.  Put these factors together and you simply can't layer up enough to swing a club.  Sure, 40° by itself isn't crazy cold.  Heck, I've been comfortable on top of a mountain at 0°.  But, and it's a huge but, it was sunny as heck, no wind, and the driest air imaginable.  Our cold is damp.  It gets into your bones.  Then the N wind brings a chill with it to numb your extremities.  And there is no sun to help.  It's bleak, as far as golf goes.

But hey, it's still Florida!!! The other 10 months out of the year are fantastic!

although i live in the tropics and don't really have any real cold days ii think i can play in any weather we have as long as there is no heavy rain or thunder....

coldest i've tried locally is probably low to mid 40s F up in a mountain course during dec/jan...

i've played in over 100 degree weather--and 100% humidity--several times and as long as you keep in the shade as much as possible(we have umbrella girls!) and drink lots of water it's ok..

In Melb we can get some cold weather and some colder winds as well!

I have played in -2* C (28.4*F) to start and warmed up too 10*C (50*F). Others have played in 0*C and warmed up too 12*C.

Cold is individual. I can play in cold winds or cold days. Rain etc. I guess the only 2 times would be Heavy Hail and Thunderstorms.

I absolutely detest cold weather and can think of nothing worse! But I am up for playing Golf in it as I guess you stay warm during the round more so than sitting around doing nothing!
