What's Your Ideal Golfing Weather?

Recommended Posts

A friend of mine and myself were at an indoor driving range a few weeks ago. Amongst the small talk between shots, the question of "what's your ideal/favouriote golfing weather" came up. He said his is a hot, sunny day with high temps, whereas I said mine was a cool, cloudy day with a little bit of drizzle, to his surprise.

How about you guys? What's your ideal weather scenario or weather you play best in?

The hotter, the better. Absolutely hate teeing off in anything under 60 degrees - even if it warms up after a few holes.

Ideally, temps in the 80s or 90s - nothing an ice cold beer or 2 cant fix.

Mid 60s and sunny.  Warm enough to wear shorts and cool enough where I don't sweat.

Really warm, 80s, and some humidity.  It's tough for me to get and stay loose in cool, dry weather.  Simply love playing in places like FL and the Gulf Coast.  That's my kind of weather!

I don't care what weather it is, as long as the course is open. Living in NW Indiana, Ive been crying looking at the 5th green on the golf course near my apartment and see it covered in snow. Just glad I'm moving to San Antonio in April so this is my last winter dealing with this horrible white stuff.

Overall, ideal for me is about 75 degrees, sunshine and very little wind.   But right now, ideal is anything warm enough that there is no snow on the ground and the course is open for play....

+1. A sunny day with not a cloud in sight and the temperature in the 80's or 90's is money.

Mid 70's..these old bones need warming up. Slight breeze to none, overcast, or sunny, doesn't matter. So typical southern calif. weather... :-D

Anything over 70 degrees and sunny...And I always hated wind even before I ever played golf. Golf magnified that hatred (damned island green).

Anything over... I guess 65 or 70. I prefer dry heat to humidity. I've yet to plan to play golf on a given day and then decided that no, it's too hot. This includes Palm Spring in the summer.

    • Here's what happened and why I ask the question. I have a brother-in-law same age as me (68) with no hobbies what so ever. He's a stock & bond broker with no outside interests at all. He doesn't collect stamps, he's not a wood worker, he doesn't play tennis, he doesn't do anything but work, work, work. He won't even sit down and read a book. (He claims he doesn't have the patience.) He has no interests other than the stock and bond markets and he's incapable of relaxing. He's also very, very uncoordinated, but nevertheless, a very nice guy. Golf would not be a good thing for him. He has come to me several times over the years and said, "I don't know how I'm ever going to retire because I won't know what do do with myself. Maybe I'll take up golf! You'll teach me!" And I said, "I will not teach you, I can't teach you because I'm not an instructor. You'll need to buy a set of real clubs, not the couple of old irons you have in your garage, and take lessons from a teaching pro." I did play golf with him once, maybe 10 or 15 years ago. He had a couple of mismatched irons, one ancient 3 wood with loose whipping and a putter all from, I'm pretty sure, from the Salvation Army store and he insisted on teeing up every shot, even ones from the fairway. If I say he shot somewhere between 140 and 160 (not counting the whiffs) I'm being charitable. We walked the 18 holes that day and it nearly killed him. When we were done he was totally drained and I actually thought he was going to have a heart attack. I also said to him, "You've managed to live 60 some years without golf, why start now? It will only frustrate you and drive you crazy." Then I jokingly, said to him, "It's too late for me...I'm hooked, but I can save you!" He mentioned it to me again recently so, in the interests of "growing the game" do I encourage him to buy clubs and take lessons or should I continue to try suggesting other things for him to do? (He does have a mammoth wine collection.). I really want to discourage him because knowing him like I do, golf will not make him happy. Also, selfishly, I don't want to play with hm again. That round 15 years ago took over 6 hours to play and there were many groups stacked up behind us cursing and yelling and we were being hounded by the rangers. It was awful.      
    • My first question is . Did you do all three exercises and how did you do ? This is meant as a fun test to see how ones' balance and core is. It is not meant to build anything. There are many exercises that progressively work up to addressing the entire body that help one hit the ball better, but that is not what this is all about. Thanks for your input. 
    • Thanks Lihu..I dont hate it, I just dont have fun playing ...so the interest isnt there any longer...I am still a golf fan..just not a player..
    • Hello everyone. I’m brand new (about a month) to golf, and I’ve been lurking here for a few weeks. I figured it was about time to join!    I look forward to getting to know y’all!
    • I have a distant cousin who tried it and even forced me to go to the driving range a few times long before I was into playing. I found it stupid and not worth my time, but did it just to keep him company. He never got the hang of it, quit then 6 years later my kids got into it and my archery range virtually shut down so I started playing golf with them. My cousin hates it just like you, and I started out thinking this is the dumbest activity ever made but now enjoy it. You never know what’s in your future, just take a break from it. We’ll be here, or, at least some of us.
