My wife and I play when its below freezing & as long as there's no snow on the courses.    A few years ago I played all winter due to lack of snow - that's a rarity though.

Every day is golf season here!

I'll be on the lanes for sure................ My son carried a 210 average last year as a 12yr old.   If it wasn't for him, I'd be on the golf course.  He turned 13 May22nd........and started

Yeah, that's why the price drops so much in the summer. Golf in the summer in Florida, and summer includes September, is a non starter for me.

As long as the temperature while playing is 60+. I can't golf with a long sleeve shirt on, strangely enough I couldn't bowl with one on either. Either way, that typically means I can play through October. Most of the courses here close around the end of Oct or sometime in Nov anyway.

As long as the courses are open, I will play throughout the winter. Even when I lived in Pennsylvania, I played throughout the winter when the courses were open. Of course some winters were worse than others in terms of snow. In Colorado, we can play pretty much all winter.

I hope to play every two weeks until the snow covers the courses or temps go below 40. One executive course in the area used to be open year round. No carts. $5 in the mail slot at the clubhouse and play all day if you want. Not sure if they still do that. Find out probably in nov or dec when the doors close for the season.

It's really not that bad. Just have plenty of water and don't think about walking. I walked once towards the beginning of the summer just to see if I could do it. I did it but I'll never do it again!

We can play all 12 months in Dallas. There will be some snow and ice but typically it's gone by the next weekend. Sometimes tee times are delayed until the frost melts. I'll play if it's in the 40s, I've done 30s but usually there's wind so that is a pretty miserable experience.

I'll play all winter here in Colorado. GHIN season is from March 15 - November 15. Courses go into winter mode after November 15, meaning no tee boxes, and normally no cutting of new holes during that time. But they will still be open all year round. I'll play in pretty much anything above freezing. When you walk, you tend to be warm enough if you have the right gear if it's above freezing. My goal is to play 18 once per month all winter. That's been easy to do the past couple of years.

We don't shut down all year. In the winter we get rain with an occasional few inches of snow that is gone with a day or so. I play all year round and usually play in the rain, cold or windy days unless all three are present the same day then it is maybe 9 holes that day.

Yep all year golf in CO. For me all about how much snow is out there, the wind and if the sun is shining. A mild 20 degree day with bright sun feels warmer than 40 degrees under clouds with a little breeze. I've posted pics here showing my winter rounds, snow on greens and flags frozen into holes. We played Xmas eve last year. Eventually it gets silly though. When the greens are frozen the ball bounces off them like it hit a cart path and putting it a joke. The ball slithers like a snake when the greens get dead and shaggy. You just hit it and hope.

When I lived in Denver, it was always, if you can see any snow, we play winter rules, then a quick glance at Long Peak, and winter rules it was!

But I just hate hitting a cold golf ball. Maybe if I had better contact, I wouldn't mind it so much. Well, I am going to a lesson today to try to improve contact, and am ordering a Tourstriker, so maybe I will be able to play in cooler weather, which I don't mind at all otherwise.

Since we are out of season I keep hand warmers in my pocket and alternate balls when it's cold enough to feel the difference.

Most of the courses in New Brunswick are closed by Oct 31st. There is an executive course here in Fredericton which will stay open until the ground freezes and some mild years they have had rounds in December. Only the true Nuts play them,  If the first week of November is mild, I will go there to say I played in November, otherwise that is it until the 2016 season.  Or Florida or Arizona. We have a lot of Snowbirds

I'll be out there as long as there is no snow on the ground and the daytime temperature gets over 45. My number used to be 40 but the older I get, the more the cold gets to me.

    • Some range time after playing today. Just searching a bit for some consistency. I found it more in making shorter (of course) backswings.  Also, a bit more left hip goes back and up, and feels like I get some belt buckle pointing to sky more.  Just trying to clean up low point better. I rather hit some slight thins by extending up more than by flipping to avoid fatting shots.  Some driver swings. Today I was hitting a ton of push cuts (no playable). When I tried to play for them I hit the ball straight (Golf sucks).  Baseline Driver... (not a push cut, of course) Kind of same feels for iron swing. Shorter backswing, belt buck up to sky as I turn.    On a side note, its getting easier to just turn the swing length down by making a what feels like an 75% turn on the backswing. Of course, I get to 90 degrees here making what feels like is like partial backswing shoulder turn.   
    • I would say it’s about 50/50 in terms of too long or too short. Usually I’m pretty on line - it’s mainly distance control. Downhill putts are especially hard for me to judge.    I am staring at my putter more wondering if maybe it is time for a change. I have had the same box set Maxfli putter for almost 20 years. The grip is all worn down and you can see where I strike it on the face. I’ve never tried another putter so maybe I should try something that gives me better feedback.    
    • Shot 83 today, 16 GIR/nGIR, 31 putts, and 3 penalty strokes. Considering the high GIR/nGIR amount (for me), I should have had a better score, but I had three very costly swings that I estimate cost me 4-5 strokes. 1) Approach shot OB on #2, ended up making triple bogey. 2) Tee shot on #6 into penalty area, but managed bogey with a good approach after penalty drop. 3) Easy sand shot on #14 that I picked perfectly clean instead of hitting sand, and launched about 60 yards over the green into the native junk/weeds. Ended up making double bogey after it took two more shots from knee high grass to get onto the green. Drove the ball well today, and short game COVID-19 day 6 and 7 drills are continuing to pay off. Missed some makeable birdie putts, but no 3-putts, so overall putting was fine.
    • Haven't heard anything about Moderna.  Maybe worth a google search.
    • So then nothing for Moderna...my five months are up already. Ughhhhh
