Double digits below zero (without wind chill).

It's supposed to be 50 or so tomorrow, and I'll go play.

Any colder than 30 or so and I tend to want to find other things to do. Then again, 30 usually also means snow and winds, so it's more than just the cold temperatures.

Cold, I can deal with. Cold and rainy is ok.

But if it's a cold wind, forget it.

I agree with most and just layer up for the cold. Snow just means the plastic all get changed over to day-glow yellow so it gets lit up by the sun and I can find it in the snow. Worst round so far was ~30 degrees and freezing rain. First couple baskets had chains that were frozen solid. They just 'clunked' when you hit them.

Cold rain is the worst. I would much rather play in snow and below 0 temps than right around freezing with rain coming down.

I'll play in almost any conditions. Just dress appropriately and everything should be just dandy. I hate it when you dress for cold weather and then for some unknown reason the weather changes and it gets warmer. Then you begin to sweat because of all the layers you have on and then the temperature changes again and gets windy and you feel your body shiver because of the sweat. Or maybe that's only me...who knows.

Saturday here is supposed to be 14 with 15mph winds. I'm gonna go pick through a couple PIAS used bins and then consider going to throw whatever I find. Sunday, 24...I'll definitely get out that morning.

Same here. I'm not a fan of playing in the rain whether or not it's 20 or 80.

I have played plenty of rounds with below zero temps....typically have the course to myself.
