I honestly don't know the answer to this. I play every weekend and seldom have to deal with temps below 40.

2 weeks ago I was in Knoxville, and played Vic Ashe at 9 AM, it was about 20 deg, blustery, and there was about 2 inches of snow over much of the ground. It had melted some the day before, so the tees were all icy, and the snow was melting throughout the round, so it was very sloppy. Freezing front 9, sloppy back 9. Worst conditions I've played in, and it wasn't too bad...except my buddy doesn't throw hard, so the conditions there removed my advantage over him on that course, the D, and I think he took me by a couple throws.

I'd have to be relocated to MI, WI, etc, and really face true winters before I knew my winter limit.

My guess is, it would be in the cold, steady rain type department.

My threshold is if I have to wear gloves; I'm not playing.

The only thing I won't play in is cold rain. Snow I can handle. Cold I can handle. Rain I can handle. Mixing all of the above suxx.

I have played in sub 40 degree weather once or twice, but I'm not sure it's something I'd gladly do anymore so I'm a "none of the above" guy.

I'll play in any condition. My pet peeve is dirt tees, and little to no footing when you throw. I can't/won't do that again. I don't mind the cold, wind, snow, sleet, but when you don't know if you're gonna land on you butt or not- that's a total mind-fuch.

Find ice spikes to put over your shoes or boots. Seriously. I've been doing normal "summer" run ups on tee pads in MN and WI this winter that I wouldn't even think to attempt anything but a standstill throw otherwise.

You can find them for $10 - $15 for a pair. Worth their weight in gold.

I can't bring myself to play below freezing. I also wouldn't play in more than 1-2" of snow. I found out just how well snow can hide a disc while practice putting in 5" of it... no thanks. I don't want to lose a disc in that and I'm too lazy to attach ribbons to my discs.
