I've played some rounds where the temperature was in single digits with a below zero wind chill and i can honestly say that i didn't enjoy it. I work outdoors year round so i stay acclimated but nevertheless when it gets this cold it really negates the fun factor. My hats off to you guys up north who play year round.

played yesterday and set a personal cold record; air temp was 12, wind at 20-25mph for a -10 "feel". Add in 10+ inches of snow on the ground and non-cleared teepads, and it was not a great score. Still fun though and I'd do it again in a heartbeat. That said, I will not be playing today just too much bulk needed for these temps.

It is a bright, sunny day in SE Minnesota, and when I saw the temp had climbed to 1 above zero, I went and threw. -17 windchill.

The tailwind shots were fun.

I was pretty cold by the time I stopped I'll admit. The last 3 holes were into the wind.

Coldest I've played in was a glow round, -20 with winds at 10-20 (whatever made up windchill number that is). We skipped the last hole and ran to the car.

The cold isn't what bothers me, it's the snow. If you layer up well, it's not hard to stay warm. I just got back from a ski trip where I was sweating in -15.

Trying to move around a course in knee deep snow is a chore. Finding discs in it can be a pain. So for me it's the snow and darkness that keeps me off the course n winter, not the cold.

Serial shoveling sessions have been enough exercise for me these past few days. While the thought of playing on dicey tees and losing plastic in deep powder is attractive, I don't think I'll be golfing for at least a few days.
