First tournament this weekend, and the forecast is for about 50 degrees and 20 mph winds. That could be really brutal. I'm hoping the winds end up calming down, because 50 degrees is perfectly fine for golf. Of course, we've had this tournament snowed out a couple of times recently, so just being able to play will be an improvement over that.

Yeah, it's the wind part that get me.  This time of year, wind can gust up to 20-30 or more.  I love playing in 50 degree weather, but it's the wind I hate.  Make it cold and miserable.  Plus any slight miss hit and your ball goes 20-30 yards off line.

Some of us can do that without the wind...

The time has finally come here on LI, forecast for Friday is sunny and 70's, I don't think we've seen that since last September, what a brutal winter.

Take a day off to play? yes please.

For all the Sandtrappers who have been beleaguered by the winter weather I have set up a 10:48AM tee time for this Saturday for a four-hundredsome at Pebble Beach.  See you there.

Currently under a fire weather warning and a blizzard watch at the same time! Colorado in April, everybody!

Yeah, gotta love the drastic change in weather this time of the year in Colorado.  It's suppose to hit 78 today then drop to 40 tomorrow, with possibility of snow.

Just hoping it snows a lot in the mountains but not in the front range.

Drove by a golf course today, seems like everyone took off work to play. Except me. I'm playing Sunday when it's supposed to be 50 and raining :~(

Complete whiteout yesterday.  Snow covered roads on nearly half the drive to Bozeman this morning and full sun and bone dry roads on the return leg - that's spring weather in southwest Montana. :-D  Still quite a bit of snow on the course in Bozeman, but it won't be too long.  There's already been a couple of times my wife and I have questioned our return from AZ, but then again it was 99F a couples days last week.  Perhaps we need a 3rd location (St. George, UT)?

Any of our forum members full time RVer's?  This option would certainly seem the cats meow in being able to follow the optimum weather for golf.

Just drive to San Diego and park the thing there!

We actually got out to play today, and we are going out again tomorrow before the weather turns to crap again! Cart path only and mud balls galore, but what can you do? All the runs, rills, streams and rivers are still running high and bank full, there is so much water in the ground.

Anyway, just thankful for some sun and warm temps!

I thought this winter would never end, but alas, the sun is up and fairways are thawing. Predictions the next week are more sun and up to 16C/61F, with some expecting it to get up to 20C/68F not too far from now.

I think I've found the course I'll be playing the most. They got all greens thawed and have started brushing them.

Was able to practice a lot this week before the apocalypse hit this morning. I'm heading down to Florida in a week - just in time for the courses to open up here.

Snow on Monday, but 60s and dry when I get out of jail Wednesday. Good enough for me if it holds up.

Almost hit 80 today but no golf. Tomorrow's forecast got worse so I cancelled. This is the slowest start to my golf season that I can remember.
