You sure ain't from my neck of the woods haha! I despise playing in the snow. But that, as Juke put above, isn't even snow haha. That's a heavy frost. I'm still probably playing in shorts on that course.

I think I’ll take a pass. BUT! I’d gladly watch a pro tourney in that.

Snow golf is fun when you just stop pretending you are going to be anywhere near as good as normal.

Helps to be halfway decent at standstills to avoid falling and injuries where it's too slick.

That would be hilarious actually. Especially with all the California and southern folks on the cards. I'd watch that for giggles.


FWIW I even stop playing when it's that deep. Love the snow, don't mind the cold, butI hate looking for discs. I switch to more season appropriate activities haha. You'll see me again on the course somewhere between march and june, depending on when it decides to be spring up here again.

You don't really want to use the tees if you're not going to clear them first. You'll cause them to ice over unevenly from stomping on them, and they'll be treacherous to everyone else that tries to use them. Once they're frozen that way, they don't change until spring.
