It is officially too cold to play golf here at GolfBlogger World Headquarters.
But it makes me wonder: What’s the coldest round you’ve played?
I have played quite a few rounds with the temperatures in the ‘30s. There are a couple of courses here in the area that remain open as long as there is no snow on the ground. It is actually a lot of fun. You just don your best high-tech cold weather gear and lower your expectations. Forget about keeping score. Just hit the ball and then go find it. Pure Golf.
1 thought on “What’s The Coldest Round You’ve Ever Played?”
I don’t know what the temperature was, but when I was much younger (in my 20s), my friends and I played in the cold and when we were at the farthest point from the clubhouse (of course!), it started sleeting on us. Since we had to walk the holes back to the clubhouse anyway (15, 16, 17, and 18 at that course), we played our way in. By the time we loaded up, we actually had icicles hanging from our walking carts! The clubhouse was already shut and locked and it was in the afternoon. They obviously had no idea that people as dumb as us were still out there.
Which reminds me of one of my favorite jokes…
These two guys are playing golf one day and the first one turns to the other and says, “Would you take a look at those idiots over there trying to build a snowman in this blizzard?”
