I asked my home course when in the year they shut down for winter and was told when it snows.

I will continue playing until that day and then hopefully find somewhere in the winter that stays open or an indoor course (if they exist).

I was wondering how late into fall/winter you guys in the Midwest or colder winter areas continue to play?

All year, weather permitting.

The golf season stops? That must been when all you snow birds come down  I don't remember the last time I didn't golf for more then a week, might have been 3 or so years ago.


Do you play Osprey much?

Living in the UK I expect to play through winter. It'll get cold but a base layer, decent jacket, some mitts and a wolly hat and it'll be fine. As long as there isn't much wind, as I find wind chill brutal being skinny. Not until joining this forum did I appreciate for a lot of Americans golf has a season!

I know this may be a stupid question, but does the cold affect the ball or clubs in a negative way where you probably shouldn't golf in cold temps or makes things very different? Like, for example, could it damage your driver? I know that hitting the ball with a bat can damage nice bats in softball or at least that's why I've been told.

damage driver or clubs? no. effect the ball flight, spin and compresion and feel of the ball....yes indeed. An extra club sometimes two is enough to keep things interesting. the pure beauty of playing when its cold out......no crowds

AMEN!!! Makes me want to move to Alaska. The world seems full of slow inconsiderate players. Its taking me close to five hours to play golf during the week. Its getting a bit ridiculous and Im truly scared I may have to quit golf when temps are above 50 degrees.

50F is my threshold and I usually play through October.

This for me as well. I tried playing on Thanksgiving Day last year. It was sunny, no snow on the ground, and 35-40 degrees, I did not enjoy this at all.

Yep, its a good course but gets really crowded on the weekends. Its rough though if you miss it, there is no chance of finding your ball.


I donated half a dozen balls to the course a few weeks ago. If you find some RZN Reds please return them to me! :dance:

It's mostly about the temps for me more than late season. I will still play as long is it at least 50 degree's. Anything below 50 is just not much fun for me anymore.

This is pretty much my rule of thumb as well.

I don't play a lot after the first hard freeze which is usually late October or sometimes even late November in the deep mid-south. Occasionally though I will venture out for 9 or so on a nice day during the winter.

    • On what grounds? It has been mentioned here that the purpose of such swale is to collect and divert water. This is from the Definition of  Penalty Area: A penalty area is: •• Any body of water on the course (whether or not marked by the Committee), including a sea, lake, pond, river, ditch, surface drainage ditch or other open watercourse (even if not containing water), Seems pretty straightforward to me.  That means also that any water in those swales is NOT Temporary Water and the is NO free relief from them whatsoever.
    • Bogey, par, bogey x 3, par, bogey, par, bogey x 3, par, bogey x 4, par, bogey. Sorta decent round.  Extra wet ground in some places with swamp and casual water.
    • Broke 80 by shooting 72.  Also the "No 6's" challenge. (Posted this on the challenge thread also.) Thanks!
    • Shot 36-36 = 72 - 1 over on my home course. 3 birdies and 4 bogeys.  Tied PR.  Windy with slight rain. Hosted 16 members of my other club to play with 15 members of this club. Amazing day. Good score was just a bonus. 
    • Very, very quick video. Thoughts? Some questions/comments: Do you think 60° to 120° is a lot? Is there a benefit in reducing that number/rotation? Is this something you "do" or something that "happens"? What are some other PGA Tour player numbers? What do you think?
