After some advice from some American Golf WRX'ers if I may!

Thinking of heading over the Pennsylvania for some golf at the end of February/start of March next year but curious as to what temperatures I should expect? Also, are all the clubs open or do some shut down before the season kicks in?

Thank you in advance for any guidance...

    Could be 30 degrees and could be 60 degrees. Could be snow on the ground or could be nothing. Ground will 80% still be hard for sure. Also depends on where in PA. Def won’t be very green no matter where.

    Over the last few years I feel like we have gotten pretty late and mild winters. This year they are calling for a different story but you really just never know. That’s a tricky time of the year to predict.

    Completely agree, not last March but the previous one we had 3 snow storms roll though and delay the golf season by almost a month. I'm in NJ, but very close to the PA border, and I've seen predictions ranging from a really bad and snowy winter, to a milder and more rainy winter. Basically, I don't think you'll be able to tell until you get a few weeks out from when you're planning on going. Personally, I would say you're better off heading further south but you never know what you'll get

    Thank you for your replies - towards Pinehurst a better bet?

    Where are you from? Where in PA? Beginning of March can have winter days or spring days. Grass will probably be dormant.
    Most public courses will be open, weather permitting. Rates will still be winter lower rates.

    NC/SC will be warmer, by about a month (like April would be in PA) and probably not peak rates until Mid March.

    The best golf in February/March is definitely gonna be in a Carolina. Penn isn’t going to be good golf conditions even if you do get out and play

    Pinehurst would be warmer than PA, but you could still have some cold mornings. Average daytime highs for early March are in the upper 50's to low 60's.

    Quite a few nice courses in the Harrisburg area near me. It's a gamble at that time of year with weather, but prices are very good then.
