I just read through the "Holiday Skins Game" thread and the statement was made that 62 degrees was too cold to play golf.

So what is your limit? Where is your line?

For me, I'd play in low 40s if there was no wind. You take it above 5-10 mph though and I'm gonna need high 50s at a minimum but would prefer a 6 handle or higher.

62 is damn near perfect

I'm usually staying home if it's in the 40s.

The answer varies depending on wind, rain, and sun, as well as walking or riding. I'll play (walk) all the way down to the low 30s as long as the wind is mostly calm and it's dry.

If it's warm enough for the course to be open, I'll play.

Same here. I don't mind the cold so much but I am not a fan of super windy days or mud.

I made this thread a year-ish ago

My conclusion is that I will endure way more cold than most golfers here. Hahah

It was 51 with off and on rain today and I was pretty comfortable with just a hoodie and rain coat.

Most of our winter rounds out here start in the upper 30s /low 40s. Zippo hand warmers and a cart heater (if riding) and it isn't too terrible.

Sun out, no wind? I'll play 39.

Wet and windy? Won't play in 60.

Im coastal, so I hate to "layer up" to play golf. Layering up and golf do not go together.
50's calm, dry and sunny is ok. Mix in wind and/or rain and it goes downhill fast.

I'll play in whatever with the right people or on the right course

Played in 50+ mph winds and hail earlier this year...had a blast. We were laughing so hard in the middle of it... didn't seem to bad while out there

Usually under 60 is a hard no for me, mud is also a hard no for me. Rain? Nope.

If there is hardly any wind, then temps in the 40's are still a go for the group that I golf with.

With winds below 15 mph, then the low 50's are still a go.

If temps are in the 60's, then it's an automatic go.

I just played a two day event last weekend. 40 something degrees, 15-25 mph winds, steady drizzle.

Would not participate again.

This. 100%. I'll golf in the 30s with snow as long as there's no wind.

This, if the Sunny and 38 day has no wind.

Wind is the most important factor.

30s with no wind is not bad

This is the beauty of being in Minnesota, mother nature closes the courses for us before it gets too cold to play.

Parents lived around Nashville for a few years when I was in school. Visited one winter and dad and I played the Legends Club. Gray overcast cold day. Think we started in the 40s and it dropped in to the 30s as the day went on. Miserable and couldn't even enjoy the course. Not doing that again.

Weather doesn't matter to me. I like to play golf.

Old and cold is a bad combination.

About 15 years ago I went out to Delaware Springs with a friend when it was in the mid 30's , no sun, and mist. At the turn, the staff told us we were the only ones on the course. After we finished 10, the assistant came up in his cart and said he'd give us a free round if we'd quit now. Outta there with a free round.

My Uncle says he won't play unless he can shoot the temperature.

Yeah, this is pretty much me.

I play in an annual tournament here in the Valley that is held the last week of February. I've played too many cold rounds in that tournament where I probably wouldn't have been playing otherwise.

Wind.... That's the biggest factor. I have played in the 30s and was very comfortable.

Last weekend my HS team played in a tournament in San Angelo. Thursday afternoon was fine. 2 hour frost delay Friday AM , and was cloudy, some drizzle, and temps stayed high 30's to low 40's. Saturdays round was canceled, as moisture was forecast. This is common in late fall - early spring for HS tournaments. I live in Lubbock. If the course is open- we are outside.

2 layers is the limit. What ever the weather is - if I am fine in layers, I'll play

Played last Friday afternoon, 44 and windy, we bailed after 4 holes.

Saturday morning no wind and 35 degrees when we teed off, played 18.

Still battling an upper respiratory infection.

Similar for me. 2 knee surgeries a back surgery and a shoulder discourage me from playing when it's cold

I played Bryan Muni in either 1980 or '81 when it was 20 degrees. The water hazards were, not surprisingly, quite easy.

My boss and I played every Saturday. Regardless.

Also, not surprisingly, we were both quite drunk when we finished.
The last thing I want to do is hurt you. But, it's still on the list.
