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?

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

I used to be a diehard that played all winter providing the ground isn't snow covered.   I own my own cart-cover and all that kind of stuff............LOL

Lately...not so much because I have a 13yr old son that has winter activities that interfere.   I still play golf all winter long, but only when it doesn't conflict with the father/son time doing his stuff.   Once he graduates from HS and goes off to college and into life, I'll play a lot more.   For now, golf is a lower priority.

I live in the Northeast - I will play as long as there is no snow on the ground, and I don't need to wear gloves...which works out to be about 40 degrees or so.

Last year, I played on Christmas Eve and New Year's Day in Philadelphia...that was great.

I golfed last year into mid November (Northeast PA).  I remember there were flurries in the air and it was damn cold and windy.  I was wearing a knit hat pulled down over my ears.  I was a little overdressed because I was sweating like crazy.  I did catch a wicked cold after that little ordeal.   I will try to go as long as its open.  You do have the place to yourself which is kind of nice.

The latest I can remember playing is the middle of November, but it was unseasonably warm that year. The course had all the flags removed but didn't mind me playing. Talk about not flag hunting... all you can do is aim for the middle of the green (which is what I should do anyway) and walk up to look for the hole location.

I played this past Sunday and the temp was 38* at 8 am.

The GHIN season ends here on Oct 31.

But I'll continue to play as long as the weather cooperates. I'm certain to play at least a few rounds in November, hopefully more.

Any rounds in December are considered bonus golf. We'll see.

If it's over 40 degrees and the courses are letting people out, I'll golf. SLC has pretty mild winters (in the valley), I've played every month so far this year. Back east I'd typically be able to play up through November, and as early as late February... Just depends when the snow would start and end.

Until I show up and the gates are locked!  It varies year to year, hopefully this year will be early November at the earliest.  Simulators for me all winter after that.

GHIN season ends October 31st. The rains are hitting, and preferred lies are in effect. We're also getting into punching and sanding season which means auto two-putts for about a week and no reporting those scores unless you're truly a masochist and like putting on stimp 3 greens, followed by cauliflower greens for the remainder of the season and 2' gimme putts. Then we hit leaf season and the local leaf rules where you lose your ball in the fairway or rough and there's no penalty. Then they aerate the fairways and we have mess. We're pretty much done now for decent golf, but fortunately the green fees are really cheap for practice rounds - $10. Can't beat that until the rains really start.

But we're supposed to have a relatively dry winter. Relatively dry. And warm. Relatively warm. If it's near 60 I might hit the course. If it's around 50 forget it. I hate the cold. I have rain gear, too, and I hate getting wet. I might play some virtual rounds.

My season ends on September 30, and my new/next season starts on October 1st. I have about 24 hours+/- to reflect on my past year's accomplishments with this game, and to plan a head on what I want to accomplish during the next 12 months.  In other words I golf year around.

Cool, I got another new avatar. :beer:

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 his new league season last Saturday by pitching a 701 series.  He's ready..

When it comes to bowling, this little guy is "Beast Mode".

I'm playing less golf to spend Father/son time at the lanes.   We're having a blast..... yea, bowling isn't for everybody!  I get that!   We're both pretty good at it though so that helps!  He got me started in the game, but I still have the upper hand.  He's nipping at my heels though!!   I know where he got his good "hand eye" coordination from........ his daddy!!!   If he got back into golf, he'd be really good!!  for now, his interest is bowling...so be it.  He's light...... and throws a 15lb ball hard with velocity and revs. Throws with authority!........

    • I said in my post, let’s start simple with 2-years.         You call it stubbornness, I call it prudence. Others disagree with “pretty damn effective” against current variants, let alone those to come.   It’s also worth noting that different vaccines have different levels of effectiveness.   Where Do COVID Vaccines Stand Against the Variants? Drug makers scramble to adapt vaccines to coronavirus variants before they outwit our immune systems.     Again, your personal opinion. And yes, I read and understand the science as well.   Not necessarily. Oftentimes it was my duty to actually put people in harms way…    
    • Of course.  Almost all of us strive, through research and training and other methods, to stay alive.   Military or not.  But in the military you must be willing to put yourself in harm's way to protect your country.  The result could be your death.  When you go in you know this.
    • Debunking mRNA Vaccine Misconceptions—An Overview for Medical Professionals mRNA vaccines are designed to withstand many variants.  It is literally impossible to say what variants will arise though. To the third, why would that matter on whether you take it or not? If you take more, you take more.  I'd assume the first two questions are the key for you, the third is more curiosity.  Would the third be a make it or break it moment?  If anything, it could be yearly.  But the more people vaccinate, the less likely it is we'd need to take more.
    • I've been in a scenario similar before, except I was the player who went over the time and it was an assistant coach who found my first ball as I was addressing my provisional.  Yeah, it really sucks to find the first ball after it's already been declared lost. Knowing that you could have avoided the two strokes if you'd just looked "right over there" instead, but the ball was lost and now at least you aren't out the $4 of a nice ball (assuming you pay for balls, I know many high school/college golfers don't during school tournaments). There was no discussion or arguments on the course, I just told him to toss me the ball and continued to play my provisional, but after the round he pulled me aside to tell me I should have just played the original ball since it was found before I hit the provisional. In all honesty I probably would've scored worse from the position of the original ball (deep in a bush requiring a drop that still would leave me in a bad position), and the ball was already lost. A lost ball stays lost, and if you find it after it's no different than coming out of the woods with an extra couple balls left by earlier golfers. I've also had the coach/caddy of another player in summer tournaments try to twist the rules against me as some kind of "gotcha!" at the scoring tent (where he wasn't even supposed to be allowed) over an event that happened very early in the round. I had pointed out to his player that you can't play from inside of an ESA like you can with other lateral hazards, and apparently that upset him when the player agreed with me rather than him so he claimed I looked too long somewhere on the front 9 for my ball. I hadn't looked for that long, I found it before the other players even started playing their golf balls, but he got himself worked up enough that I just withdrew and left without signing my scorecard or dealing with any of that hassle. This was a guy who made a big deal on the first tee (and multiple other times throughout the round) about being a PGA Professional and that we should all listen to his advice (against the rules) because he was a pro. Those incidents, among others I've encountered along the way, have led me to believe that the people who want to bend the rules are most often the people not actually playing in the event itself, but those who are "indirectly participating" as a caddy/coach/etc. There are no consequences for them directly, if caught the blame lands on the player, but if their players do well they can take the credit. They also usually know enough about the rules to be dangerous, either from intentional or unintentional misinterpretation.
    • After having a golf simulator for 2 months my golf scores have stabilized tremendously. Previously I used to play in the mid to high 90s. My last 3 scores has been 89, 89 and 90 on tough courses. The biggest improvement is that I have completed a golf wedge matrix with 1/3, 2/3 and full swing distances and now I am able to hit the greens over 80% of of the time within 30 yards to 90 yards. This limits most bad holes to bogeys.  There are stretches of 9 holes that I have only 2 over. However, my slices and pulls sometimes resulted in big numbers on a few holes. With the golf simulator, I can see clearly that I still have an out to in swing. When I consciously pretend to have a glove under my right arm pit I hit the balls really well with no pull or slice in practice. However, on the course my pulls and slices often come back which results in double bogeys or even triple bogeys when I lose my balls. I am really optimistic. With the simulator and instant feedback I think I will be able to resolved my out to in swing problem in a few months.
