Not yet, I plan to play at least once more. If the last two years are any indication, I may get snowed out before Dec. 31st, but technically the potential to play almost year-round exists, so maybe I'll get lucky and be out there between Christmas and New Year's. I think my last round will be mid Dec, depending on schedule and weather. But between those two, I think I only have one round left, two if I'm lucky.

Played today, and have a tee time for tomorrow. Hopefully I'll get a couple more rounds in, but its getting cold. Was about 40* today with 15-20mph winds. Supposed to be about the same tomorrow.

Monday. 11-28.

39 degrees but the sun was out and the wind was bearable. Temp greens were starting to appear and forecast isn't good. Likely the last round of the year.  Hoping for a short winter and an early spring.

Local HDCP system won't let you post scores after Oct. 31, so I'm pretty well done until March.

I'll hit some balls or maybe play nine on a warm day, but other than that it's get the clubs regripped, and frequent the gym to get into shape.

One extra factor we have: If temperature goes below freezing at night, greenskeepers normally have you wait until the frost melts off before you can play. Otherwise, iron shots will shatter the frozen grass and leave a gouge.

Focus, connect and follow through!

Gotta be today for me. Dec 19 in west burbs of Chicago. Drinking coffee and reading about how the Bears (football)  suck when my wife remarked it was 47F outside, Walking the course in the sunshine 30 minutes later. 40/54. Some good shots to remember.

Was hoping for some of the snow on the ground to melt here, but I think it'll be there for awhile here in Utah. Played in early Dec last, shot a 87 in 35* weather. Amazing how high the ball bounces on approach shots in that cold, seemed like I was hitting the ball into concrete or something.

We are lucky this year in central NY.  By this time last year, I think we had 70" of snow.  I went yesterday and maybe can go out today.  Cold and rainy...but no snow.  The only thing that's getting on my nerves a little is the constant wet,squishy fairways.  Except for a short stretch around August, it's pretty much been a squishy year.  While walking off the course yesterday, I thought I was taking a dry route to the club house but hit a stretch where the turf was so wet that it overflowed the top of my shoes.  Wet, cold feet on a golf course is still better than snow.

One advantage shotgunning has to golf. shot all year long without traveling or living in a warm climate. But I still hope to make it out one last time before they close all the courses till spring.

Just played it yesterday. Short irons were good, driving was crappy, wedges were crappy. I just got lazy and overly relaxed. My right wrist and arm were doing all manner of unholy things. Hoping next year is better.

Mine is going to be in about a half hour. Opened gifts from my son, called the relatives. Time to head to Winter Park CC to walk nine. Sunny 80 degrees. (Yes I feel your hate)

played Christmas eve - Apple Mountain.    Brisk, but got in a good round considering all the clothes I had to wear.     Hit the best 3w off the deck ever (my nemesis shot) & birdied their infamous par 6 hole - great way to finish the season.       I'm afraid the forecast doesn't look good going forward - winter has officially arrived.    I'm probably done locally - heading to Wolf Creek  & Rio Secco in late January ...

    • Yes for me its the opposite I play 60-70% of my Golf solo ...which I enjoy ..its my workout -mental health-work on my game .... sometimes if I have a comp coming up I really hope to do well in I'll play full 18 hole round and tee off 2x to 3x balls off each hole and usually add another ball or too when it comes to my short game .... is a real workout but I find it brilliant for endurance to my game hitting 200+ shots in a round ... (still have just one ball I keep a score to...) I am lucky to have a total population in my region of much less than 50k yet 5x courses I can play including my own for less than $30..weekdays usually very easy to just turn up without booking and get out .... you can decide your pace , tees ,go for those hero shots ,focus just on your game ... unlike my last monthly medal where one of the foursome found out I was a  fulltime ASX Sharetrader so wanted to talk about the sharemarket he was also trading which is fine but next minute my mind was thinking about the market(which it does 40hrs+ pw) and drove the ball OB !! my own mental weakness fault..
