May have been yesterday. Signed up for our "Last Chance" tournament on the 15th, but life just got busier on the weekend (8lb and 10oz of busy).

dec. 31st.

I'm just in Charlotte too... I pretty much came to post this.

Well...I'm in California and can play all 365. That said, I'll be visiting my hometown next week and I'm hoping to squeeze in a round. Given it's Michigan, I'm guessing it'll be my last Midwest round of the year!

This is my first proper winter of Golfing. I wasn't planning on stopping.. is that wrong?

Last year we had a work golf day and there was some snow on the ground (East of England). sure it was a little cold but at that time of year everything you do is a little cold unless you in stay indoors. So if you are going to out you may as well play golf, right? In anycase I've finally found a 'wife approved activity' that gets me out of the house and I'm not giving it up just because the earth is tilted the wrong way for a bit.

The last possible/comfortable round of the season on the northern end of the Jersey Shore was November 30th in 2010. I think it snowed on December 1st and the temp. didn't get above the low 40s until March. And if it did get above the low 40s, there was snow on the ground. Hopefully we make it to late November again.

In PA, we can usually play up to Thanksgiving.     Love fall golf - it's usually like you bought the golf course for the afternoon  ... rarely any crowds out there (I don't mind losing a few balls in the leaves)

We pretty much play year round in middle TN. Course closes for snow and opens late when the greens freeze so late December thru February can be hit or miss.

lol I hate losing a great drive or approach shot due to the leaves. You clearly see the area where your ball lands from where you hit it and you never see that ball again! Nothing more frustrating in my opinion. A buddy of mine is some kind of freak though with an eagle-eye. He plays his yellow tours throughout fall and still manages to locate his damn ball. I use pure whites and lose 2-3 a round in the fall!

We're just getting into overseeding the courses for the winter Snowbird Season. Greens are usually the quickest and smoothest during our 'winter'. Worst I'll see is a frost delay. :)

I'm almost embarrassed to admit I have lived in the Philly burbs for over 30 years and have never played golf in this area past September. Up until 2004 I would get in 70-80 rounds from April until the beginning of September. I was happy with the amount of rounds I was playing so the first day below about 60 degrees would mark the end of my season. Late 2004 I had the car accident and my rounds per year decreased drastically. My game was so frustrating that by 2009 I only played a handful of times, while 2010 I only played once. This year I forced my way through the pain/frustration and plan to play as long as I can. My scores aren't where I want them to be but at least I am looking forward to days on the course again. In fact since today is supposed to be so nice I'm most likely going to take a half day.

Mid - end of November weather permitting.  A few ranges here are heated and stay open most of the year so I'll be spending time there once the courses close.

I live in Texas.  My final round is the day before it snows once every 3 years.  Opening season is usually the day after when it melts and gets hot again.  Weather's just starting to cool off, so people are coming out of their air-conditioned caves to schedule some golf, so the courses are really busy right now.  Today it's only supposed to get up to 92, so I'm only planning on drinking one Gatorade instead of two.

I'm only on hour north of Fourputt, so..... what he said!  Only thing that stops us is if there is too much snow on the greens.

I got a tee time next wednesday, Oct 12th, I hope its not my last round here but I have a feeling it may be, but we are heading to Scottsdale for a week at the end of November and I plan on playing everyday while there.

Most of our public courses here in Northeast Ohio (at least the public courses, anyway) will not shut down until the snow accumulates. We really cannot predict or anticipate snow fall here though, as right now. at this very moment, it is 82° and can reach 40° by next week. That is Ohio weather for you at its finest! I'm hoping that we can at least make it to mid-November this year. We've had snow on Halloween here before though and then had an "indian summer" where we hit the high 60's in November. As long as the snow holds off, we can golf because there is nothing to melt and create a swamp on the course.

(We obviously expect 50"+ of snow through December-January though. At that point, golfing is out of the question until late mid-April unfortunately).

Played until mid-November last year with pretty decent weather. Just put on the Cold Gear, toque and warm weather gloves and keep going until they shut it down for the winter - then it's indoors at the golf dome until April :(
