Agreed. It was a little overgrown when I played it but it is a decent layout for sure.

Edit: the green on hole 16(I think) was really green. It was a grove of knee high plants.

If I die of exposure on the course it means I've hit my limit I've played in deep snow, sub zero temperatures, freezing rain, hail, even during a tropical storm. If I have the jones to play, I'm playing, f*ck mother nature!

I played Kaposia Park in St. Paul, MN this past Wednesday. It was 15 degrees ("Real Feel" 3 degrees according to my Accuweather App) when I got there after work.

Threw on a couple layers, hat, gloves, and busted out the hand warmers and ice spikes on my boots and I was good to go.

Strangely, I was the only one out playing.

The only options I didn't select were icy and windy. The fun factor of dg takes a big hit in those conditions.

Straight cold and/or snow are why I live in Minnesota.

There are times however, and don't take this wrong, I'd rather go snowshoeing or play pond hockey.

I pick none of them. Under 40 and its a no for me. I live in north Alabama and have been threatening to move farther south for a few years now. I hate the cold.

Same for me. I won't even bike to work if its below 40. I've played several times every winter month this year (2012-2013) so far, in fact I'm going disc diving today (in a wetsuit). Texas is awesome for year round playing.

You guys up north are true warriors, I would quit on life if I ever had to deal with sub-freezing temps for more than a couple of days.
