I find once I have to start wearing too many layers to stay warm, I lose too much mobility, even with a simplified standstill drive.

Also, if my big poofy gloves aren't enough to keep my fingers warm between drives, I can't grip the disc and end up either having it rip out too early or imparting a bunch of OAT.

In generally, if the temperature is below 20 degrees, I'm probably going to pass. And I HATE having a weekend pass without playing a round.

That said, with some Underarmour-type layers, a sweatshirt, and a windbreaker, you can stay surprisingly warm in fairly cold temperatures.

It's supposed to get below zero here this weekend. I'm definitely still playing.

I played on Monday and it was 18 degrees with a wind chill significantly less than that lol. I made it through 13 holes but had to bugger out early as my layered cold weather approach didn't stand a chance to the wind in the wide open portion of the course. However my wife got me a new set of base layer this week so that might be helpful in keeping me out in the cold a bit longer

Hey d.q,

We're the Sunday morning regulars at Beaver/Blue Heron. In winter we usually show up between 8-9AM and in summer between 7-8AM.

It would have to be 30 degrees or over for me to play a round or two (or three )

My last ace was in January...nineteen degrees outside! I wrote that on my disc for some reason. It was cold, but definitely worth it!

I'm born and raised in the SF Bay Area, so cold weather (below 55 degree foggy stuff) isn't really my bag. Drove up to Oregon last week for Thanksgiving though and played Milo (Riverbend) near Portland in about 38 degree weather. First time I had played Disc in a long sleeved jacket and was pleased it didn't totally throw me off. Still played in shorts though, I don't do pants.

^^ def worth noting!
We played a glow event the other night at Brevard College. It started off at about 33 degrees. Stayed at that for most of the night but dropped down to 28 degrees & you could def feel the difference. Brrr! But play continued & we didnt really have a problem with it. If you dress accordingly you should be ok with the cold. Over-dressing or bulky clothing can hinder your style though

Growing up in the Chicagoland area, I've decided that I will tolerate temps 25 and above, with no to low winds. Any moderate wind...better be 35 or higher. That is for solo rounds. Might as well enjoy your time out there.

Playing a round with a few buddies with high competition... as long as I can feel my fingers, I'll be good to go.
