How hard is it to find your disc if you are playing in a few inches of fresh snow? I would imagine you could find the entry point, but wouldn't it still travel under the snow?

It can be hard, you have to look for the entry area, disturbed snow. I just bought my winter replacement discs. I like to throw white discs 3/4 of the year and pinks, oranges, and yellows in the winter.

You could always tape a brightly colored piece of ribbon to your disc, kind of like a kite's tail if you are concerned about finding it in the snow.

They're called muffs and they are the shiz for winter golf. The one I have has two inner pockets for handwarmers. I usually end up with sweaty hands after a few holes and my throwing hand goes in and out to keep it juuust right. Sometimes I even let other people stick a hand in there to stay warm. Well, maybe just my doubles partner.



Moved from snow ridden Michigan to rain country pacific north west this year, so we'll see how it goes. Yesterday was my first round in hard rain(this season). Managed pretty well with a birdie bag and goretex/camp dry sprayed shoes. Need a new rain jacket and possibly a moisture wicking hat so I'm not wearing a puddle on my head.

I went out tonight, its low 40's, I had a t-shirt, 2 long underwear, shorts and athletic pants on, I was comfortable except my hands, after a while I couldn't throw properly, my hands were so cold and dry I could hardly grip right. My next disc golf purchase is gonna be a muff.

That looks way too bulky and restrictive. I wear merino base layer, light synthetic insulating layer, and waterproof/windproof shell. Works really well and provides great range of motion.
