.....or at least, the other end of the spectrum. Over 90 degrees? Over 100? Shirt-drenching humidity? Thunderstorms?

I'd do that for sure, although I'd leave on account of lightening during t-storms.

+20 to this, below 50 is a deal breaker here in L.A.

If it's below 10 and windy, I'm usually taking the day off unless it's leagues. Worst played in- tie between freezing rain downpour for entire glow round- soaked to the bone with ice- and a -10 F (air temp) glow round in the snow. Woke up the next morning still cold with discolored skin. Brr.

I totally agree with you!

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.
I prefer to do that too, but if I have an opportunity to get a new course and I don't think I'll be back there in the near future I'll hit it up no matter what the season or weather. Last winter I was up in Toronto for family stuff, the weather was awful but I didn't know when I would have another chance so I went out and played 5 new courses anyway.

I think it would help to clarify high under X degrees versus temps under X degrees. For example, for tournament play I need to see a high approaching 60 to show up, because you know that 8am sign in is going to be COOOOOOOLLLD. I might be able to power through if I know the warmer temps are on the way. On the other hand, for casual play, I might turn out for a high of lower 50s or even high 40s, but only during the hottest part of the day.

Ha, you wouldn't fare well at a midwestern ice bowl when the high for the day is 20 and check in is much colder.

I will play in just about anything if I was planning on playing that day and psyched up for it. To a certain extent however. I was planning on playing tomorrow but it is supposed to be like it was today. About -20* wind chill! So I probably won't.
I did play on Tuesday however after a small ice storm. I just brought my ice scraper and some ice melt with and cleared some tees. My local course (Todd Park Austin,MN) has 4 holes (3,4,13,14) that I can play in a little loop in/and next to a grove of trees that block winds from the west. Its better than nothing!

Our ice bowl last year had a high in the 70s. It was cold in the morning but we had to take our tops off in the afternoon and we were still sweating.
