Glad I moved from Minneapolis down here to Tampa Bay so I don't have to worry about winter golf.   Sorry guys probably not an appropriate comment.  🤣

The phrase....

"That's not an apology....That's a victory lap"

is appropriate here!!

As many have said I wear loads of light thin layers so I can take off or put on depending on temperature and wind chill. the layers tend to be mostly short sleeve to keep the weight off my arms and 2 sets of waterproof tops a very light one which suffices 90% of the time and a heavier one for really cold or heavier rain.

Top

  • Nike crew neck short sleeve
  • Normal golf polo t shirt
  • Sleeveless 1/4 zip
  • Wool 1/4 zip
  • Kjus lightweight  rain/windstopper
  • Galvin Green Full waterproof jacket

Bottom

  • UA Thermal Trousers
  • UA Lightweight waterproofs
  • Galvin Green Alf Full waterproof trousers
  • Stubburt golf boots with stinger cleets

For me the only thing that stops me playing is snow on the ground. Although further North than Ottawa,  Scotland is a temperate climate so rarely gets below 20'F, even with the ground frozen I'll be out.

I layer up like the others but I make sure the base most layer is long thin thermal stretch long underwear both top and bottom.  I put on a winter hat on top of my golf hat.   I also carry hand warmers in my pocket which also warms the balls

I'm located about the same latitude as Ottawa; being in a desert environment, it's hot in the summer (100-115º) but usually temperate in the winter with not much precipitation.  Sometimes we get snow, but not usually a lot.  I play all winter if no snow.  Next week we have a cold snap coming; highs 15ºF lows 6ºF, but that should only last a week, then back to 30's.  If the course is open, I'll be out there.  It's a different game, for sure!

HMMMMMM! trying to determine my layers for tomorrows 8AM tee time.  Lake Erie is down to 43 degrees and wind is out of the south, so there will be no benefit from the lake tomorrow or for the rest of the winter, wind is supposed to be light and 41 degrees (MAYBE) at 8am, so there shouldn't be any snow flurries.

WOW! I forgot just how much I love living in the "snow belt" of northeast Ohio.  M*th%&*(&*%r

Reading this post leads me to wonder.....

At what temperature do you call it and say it's too cold?  

I will play into the low 40's but usually don't go below that too often, how about you all?

Low 40s is the limit for me as well.  If it's windy, low 40's will not cut it.   The biggest issue with winter golf for me is frost delay.  Tee time are generally backed up 60-90 minutes when there is a frost delay which is basically everyday from late November on...

My brother and I will actually play regardless of the outside temperature.  As long as there is no snow on the ground we will play. We have played many times when the ground is frozen solid, and its in 30's at tee off.  This actually provides a skill challenge in winter time, you can't land the ball on the green, because that is like the ball hitting a paved parking lot, so you have to work on landing it short of the green and bouncing it up on..   We're not worried about score, its just about getting in swings, and reducing the amount of time when the spring comes and people say" I haven't swung a club since.....!" Besides I don't duck hunt anymore, kids are grown and don't want to go sled riding in the winter time, so I would almost literally be left with sitting and staring out the window for 3-4 months until mid-March, or April would come.
