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.

    • No new birdies tonight however closed out my league 9 with back to back birdies at 8 and 9. Lipped out the birdie at 7 I thought was in. Didn’t hit a GIR until 7.... took advantage of them tho. Took me a bit to get going after 2 weeks away from golf.
    • That's not a good plan, IMO. Where's your Member Swing topic? I don't see one.
    • Missed my league night on vacation in Virginia Beach last week. Hadn’t played in 2 weeks. Decided to go early and do extra short game work prior to my tee time. I expected to be a little bit off and need my short game. It paid off. I didn’t hit the ball well at all but managed to post a solid score. Right out of the gate I pulled a 9 iron left at 1. Ball on heavy rough, with a green sloping away. Chipped to one foot to save par. Bogey at 2 missed a short save. At 3 I got up and down again. Caught a flyer at 4 and missed a little deep. Made bogey. Up and down at 5. Bogey at 6. Then got hot. Stuck a wedge to 8 feet at 7 and lipped out the putt. Wedge to 6 feet at 8 made birdie. Stuck another wedge to 5 feet at 9 for birdie. Closing birdie birdie got me to +1 for the side. -2 net. Not bad considering I only hit 3 greens in regulation. 13 putts for the side is good for the score card.
    • Just an aside.  Bumped into an old friend on the practice green on Saturday.  Told him I was playing at 9:20 on Monday and that he was welcome to join me.  I let him know I'd be using a power cart because of a torn meniscus. Overnight I start thinking about the guy... a conspiracy theorist, crypto currency guy, etc., etc.  Though he did sell Mercedes' at a dealership once.  How mainstream is that? He shows up Monday morning.  I hop in the cart, clubs strapped in.  In short order Jeff straps on his clubs and hops in.  I say, "Jeff, gotta ask you a difficult and potentially rude question... are you vaccinated?"  "Hell no!"  So I told him I'd pay for a 2nd cart for him.  He was good with that and understood.  Great round... had a lot of fun.  But at 6 feet.
    • Shot an 83 today at Mesa Linda, which may become my home course soon.  No birdies;  a double at #1 and a triple at #18, with par-or-bogey for the other 16.
