Your favorite season for golf?

32 posts in this topic

I prefer a mild Texas winter.  Get to dress like a tour pro and the winter down here doesn't do too much damage to the courses.  Also seem to have more stamina in the winter time rather than 100+F* summer days (go figure).

South Florida in the winter. Spring and fall in the NE, the mornings are nippy and spring can be rainy and fall can be over quickly.

I haven't played that much in Southern CA, but I am betting that is idea.

I live in the southeast. I like the fall right up until frost which can be early but usually late October. Mornings might be high 40's but quickly warming up to 75 or so, grass still green and hardwood foilage.

I wish we had multiple seasons to choose from.  If the course is dumb enough to open I'm stupid enough to play!  Can't be too picky up here!

I'd have to say I prefer mid to late April (opening time) and early Oct for playing though.  It's way too humid in the summer for my liking.  Not that that stops me from playing 3-4 rounds per week!

I've only lived in CO so my experience is limited but here it's late Sep through early Dec. Weather is mild and the crowds have thinned but the courses are still in good shape. I'm good in the brutal heat of mid summer too, again less crowded.

Definitely fall provided the fairways are reasonably cleared of leaves. No bugs is a pretty big selling point.

Second choice would be dead of winter, 'cuz if I'm golfing in the winter it means I've gone somewhere else!

I would rather play below zero than above 90, but fall in the midwest or winter in AZ.

Three-way tie between spring, summer, and fall. No thanks in the winter, unless I'm somewhere warm. I don't care to play in weather below about 45.

That weather is reserved for duck hunting.

That would be winter and spring for me.  Summer and the beginning of fall are usually in the high 90's and 100's.  Yesterday it was about 101 and was muggy and just felt disgusting. I walked off the course after the 11th hole because it was just too much to walk.  I do not mind cold, rain, fog, wind, anything but the temp in the 100's.

I love winter in OK.  If it's around 40F and slight wind, I'll have the course to myself.  I may stop playing when both the temps and the wind are in the 30s though...

What? Give me 90+ F over -1 F any day.

In order, my 3 favorites are Fall, Fall and Fall.

Summer means blistering temps with oppressive humidity.  There is almost no way to keep sweat out of my eyes and everything is just sticky. Also:

Mosquitoes

Other flies / bugs

Poison Ivy

Overgrown waste areas that are actually sorta playable in the winter

Sunburns / skin cancer risk

Probably some things I'm not thinking of right now

The Spring is kinda hot - but the pollen in this area can coat the whole city in a green powder.  It is OK though.

Winter is actually OK too.  Course is totally brown and the ground can be frost making it difficult to play early.

The only real drawback to fall is that the leaves can cause to you lose a ball in the fairway at times.  And the greens can get pretty covered up. As soon as you clean a path from the ball to the hole, the wind blows - Ha!  But the Fall is by a long, long shot my favorite time.  Cooler temps, nice breeze, less humidity.  I could play all day.

Having said that, I appreciate living in a place I can play year round.  Even though it is hot and sticky - I still play in the dead of summer.

Like OP, I live in Texas and for the most part we can play year round.  I really like Fall golf because of the milder temperatures and generally it is not as windy as Spring.  Spring has nice weather but the wind can be brutal.  I would rather play in 100* temps with no wind than to play in 75* with a 25mph gusting wind.  All that said, I will play every chance.  I can play in the rain, I can play in the cold.  I pretty much refuse to play when it is both rainy and cold (45* or less).

I am from MN, so I'm gonna go with Fall. That means comfortable temps and beautiful scenery. Spring is close, but it is often so damn rainy all the time. Summer is just HOT.. plain and simple. Of course I play as much as I can through all three seasons. Unfortunately, winter doesn't even come into play for us northerners.

First off, it doesnt get hot, its Minnesota.  Beyond that, I agree with you 100%.  I was born and raised in Wisconsin and lived there for almost 32 years.  Theres nothing like fall in the upper midwest.

Spring-Summer-Fall. I prefer summer even though it's hot and humid...mostly because the courses are drier and more pleasant to play.


Winter is snowboard season.

Snowboarding = awesome. But it is tough in Georgia. I guess the price we pay for year round golf.
