How cold is too cold to Golf

5832185f7edd5.imageIt’s that time of the year when most of us monitor the weather throughout the week hoping to catch one final round in between the frost delays at the courses and the limited daylight. Currently in this area we have approximately a 6 hour window of daylight to get a round in. Now I am a golf psycho like most of us are, and am willing to pretty much play in anything. Maybe not quite in this time of year as I am come February when most of us have some new weapons we have gotten for Christmas and can’t wait to get out and swing the new sticks.

With that being said, I think the most important part of playing in the cold weather is how windy it is. Most of us can bundle up and play in 40 degree weather with no wind. You give us wind with 40 degree weather and there is a very limited chance I am playing unless it’s a gorgeous course, and free. Another big variable is that if you are going to play in cold weather, the appropriate move is to walk to keep your blood flowing and keep the body warm.

My final conclusion is that the anything above 40 degrees with limited wind is fine. With wind I would want roughly high 40’s and low 50’s. 

In the meantime, go enjoy the simulators for the next 4 months.
