More power to you sir. I generally choose not to hit new courses in "wintery" conditions because I feel I'm not really experiencing all that course has to offer. The fairways feel and the course just plays differently. I suppose you could say courses feel different from season to season, but there something about the nakedness of winter that makes new courses seem bland. So the only winter winter DG trips I take are going south, where it might still be cold, but the courses don't seem quite so barren.

It usually depends on how brutal it gets. I've played with over six inches on the ground and temps hovering around 20. However, if it is that cold and winds over 20 mph, that usually will keep my butt parked inside. I also will play if it is snowing as long as it is still seeable.

Just no throwing white discs

Where is the none of the above option?

Generally, I don't play below 50. Never below 40.

I'd be F'ed if I didn't allow myself to play new courses in winter, most of my free time for course bagging has been in the winter.

I completely agree though, playing a course in the winter is completely different when there's leaves on all of the trees and the tee pads are grippy.

25 degrees is my limit. A little snow is fine, but I hate playing in my snow boots and my sneakers can only handle so much Haha

I think I have a feel for just how much your personal choices contrast with mine, and that each of us makes certain "sacrifices" (perhaps trade-offs would be a more accurate word) that the other wouldn't - I think it's kind of neat actually. S'all good.

I dream of having that weather year round Lol November-January it regularly reaches single digits... then in the summer we occasionally hit triple digits. It's ridiculous.
