I played on Saturday when the windchill was only -5. I stayed indoors on Sunday and Monday, but once the temperature breaks today I will probably hit up something local like Eagle's. Next Saturday when we are supposed to be back up into the high 20s or low 30s, I am definitely getting out. I am unsure of where yet, though.

Seth Peake played Moir the other morning when windchills were easily -40 just to prove that you could.

A few years ago we had a group of 4-5 diehard buddies that would go out several times each week and play doubles. Getting all bundled up sucks for throwing but after doing it for a while you get used to it. We went out several times in 10-20 below weather.

i've been throwing so poorly that i haven't even had a desire to, but i'm going pretty crazy with not being able to find a job and i'm sick of pounding pavement/filling out applications online so i'll probably be throwing the next couple days with the temps as they are, alleviate some cabin fever and anxiety. i just can't throw well when my hands get cold, and they get cold pretty easily, even with handwarmers once you dip down into single digits and below. funny, considering i used to do snow removal. the rest of me is always warm. anyway. it'll be a nice, refreshing change of pace.

Elm creek is open and in great condition considering the amount of rain we have had. Hole 1 and 7 have some mud spots near the tube lift if you shoot long. Hole 2 had a large snow bank on the right side of the fairway on 5/9 and flooded on the left side- my guess it is still extremely wet. Other than some standing water puddles on 8 and part of a snow bank left on 18 I would consider the course in great condition. I will be trekking out there tonight for a quick 18

Completely open. A little soggy on Holes 12 and 14. Snow is still sitting on Holes 2 and 18 which makes some of the fairways wet as well. The swamp is high on Holes 1 and 2, so you could be in trouble if you cannot find the fairway. The leaves are not in and the wild grass is still short, so no excuse for losing a disc in non-water spots. The swamp on the deep left of Hole 12 is almost up into the forest, so make sure nothing goes left when you try driving through that bottleneck.

I have already played 45 holes there with an average round time of 50 minutes. Drive - approach - putt. As always the only real challenge of Elm is managing the wind when you drive for maximum distance.
