    I went out and played 18 on Thur. Dec 21st. Teed off at around 10:30 at approx. 34 degrees? I thought it was supposed to hit the mid 40s...it never did. The little ponds/lakes were mostly frozen over, so there were no water hazards! I luckily didn't hit any, but my buddy did and it bounced 3 times and made it over...



    We walked, which is now my prefered method of golfing, and it kept me a little warmer than I would've been in a cart. But ****, it felt cold.

    Played on the 29th and 30th. 29th 60*+ temps and yesterday was maybe pushing 40*s. Below freezing now until the 4th. Oh well I guess. This has been a great year for golfing and a terrible one for skiing or any winter sports in general. Fingers crossed we get a lot of snow in the new year!

    I last played on December 22nd. I'm getting over a shoulder injury or I would have played on the 23rd and 24th and playing on the 22nd got the shoulder fired up again. Now we are in the deep freeze here.

    Last round played was DEC 24. It was 48 degrees. Since then we have been in the the most brutal cold stretch Ive ever seen in the DC area that lasted this long. Single digit , teens, 20s and below zero wind chill. Thankfully temps will rebound to 40s and 50s next Tuesday for about 5 days. We have some snow cover but it sHould be gone by next Monday or Tuesday.

    Got in the late December round and was holding out hope for a round or two in January. It was -4 today. I think it will be a while. If I want to play, I guess I'll have to lug my clubs on a business trip down to Charleston.... oh wait. They had 6 inches of snow yesterday. The winter is a cruel beast.

    We just got nailed with 18" of snow yesterday here in SouthEastern NJ and are in a serious deep freeze like I haven't seen in years. It may be a long time before I can play again. May have to think about flights to Florida.

    Don't rememebr anything this severe since 09 if I rememebr correctly? I usually only miss 3 to 4 weekends per winter. Have a feeling we are in for a long winter.

    Played my first round of 2018 today, finally having some time. Days like these make me not miss NY at all. Would normally play a first round of the year about a few months later.

    Fortunate enough we get to play year round for the most part. Get some cold days but so far it’s been a really good winter.
    As you walk down the fairway of life you must smell the roses, for you only get to play one round.

    Living in the west coast allows me to play year round. Unfortunately, work and kids hinders the golf plan.

    Just played last Saturday. Course wasn't in good shape with snow, ice and mud everywhere but it was great. Unfortunately it's snowing again here in Boston and it's doubtful I'll get out again soon.

    Played Aston Oaks Golf Course on Saturday..

    http://www.astonoaksgolfclub.com/



    High 30s, wet, no wind.. The carts already had a cover and my golf partner brought a heater..

    It might be the best course I've played on Jack's design.. Beautiful scenery by the river, every hole was different with lot of elevations..



    Scored 82..

    I can play all winter, but I often have to bust out the rain gear and gloves, since we get weeks of rain at a time here...
