My only limits are lightening, tornadoes and monsoon like rain. Cold doesn't bother me.

I'd have to add wildfires and earthquakes to that list.
Actually, pretty much any natural (or man-made) disaster type scenario.









It's raining, I'm bored, and I'm waiting for the Viking's game to start.

I'll play and have played in anything but in winter my sweet spot is mid 20s. My discs and hands stay dry and it's warm enough to dress lightly. In colder weather I layer with vests and muscle shirts to keep my trunk warm and my arms free to swing. You can play in very cold temps and still have an enjoyable round with the proper gear.

I will usually play if it’s over 30 and under 100, exceptions if I already payed to play or if it’s a new course. I’ve bagged new courses in the 20s a couple of times as I didn’t know if or when I’d be in that area again.

And for many of those it was astute as I have not been back.

When I was in my low 20s there were no limits. Now that I am in my low 30s, if I am out there by myself, there needs to be no snow and above 30. I can deal with a little snow and slightly lower temps if it is with some friends.

I agree about wearing a vest. My arms need to be free. Wind in the winter is my main problem. If there's little to no wind I'll probably play in 10 degrees and up. Just got an electronic hand warmer for Christmas, that was one of the best gifts I've gotten in a while.

Totally with you. DG in the mid 20's is great if the wind is calm. Cold enough that it's not wet and muddy. You can get some nice skips on frozen ground. And it's easier to find shots that would have landed in thick bushes a few months ago.

My "go to" outfit is: wicking base layer, light weight fleece, hoodie. I don't find that restrictive at all.

I love to play in 40-50 degree weather, but I can play in as low as 20 degrees if wind is calm and sun is out. I will not play in snow or if ground is icy, too old of a guy to be taking spills on slick surfaces.

I've been using them for a few years now, I love 'em.

I don't play in the rain in any temperature. I had enough of dealing with rain while I was in the Army.

I've played DG in 40 temps and even in the 30s, and will do so as long as it's not raining and not too windy out. If it's warm(er) I'll play in wind, but wind can make a pleasant cold day into an unpleasant endurance trial.
