The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

I do. I need to get outside and feel the sun so that I don't feel all cooped up and crazy. It is only supposed to be about 35 today but I don't care. I am layering up and heading out to play.


During winter each day that I can play seems like a bonus because I just don't expect to get that many rounds in.

i am starting to feel my season coming to a close now as its starting to get real cold(even though its beautiful out today)and its getting dark at 4:30. i just have to come to terms with it just like when i can't play for other reasons(ex.- work, school, health problems) i start fiending out and looking at disc golf stuff online and watching videos but i sometimes think that makes it worse lol. I still play a decent amount in the winter but not nearly as much as i do in the summer. every couple weeks you get that random day where it is nice out and not as cold as usual, and i jump on it!
to answer your question Jim, YES I need disc golf to get me through the winter!
It was 46 degrees out when I got on the course this morning in La Mirada. Fortunately it doesn't get much colder than that here in California. I don't know what I'd do if I had to deal with the snow like a lot of you guys. I feel for you bruthas.

I always tell myself that I won't be going out to play much only to see that the sun is shining and I feel the need to get in the car and drive twenty minutes to go play. Oh well. A friend and I moved baskets yesterday so I want to get out and play the new positions. They are supposed to be the "winter" positions in case we can't move them until spring.


I am also glad that we decided to institute a Sunday morning league last winter.

Winter out here is less of a deterrent and more of a decree ending all disc golf for the season. Four feet of snow on the ground, 20 mph winds, and temperatures around 0 Fahrenheit  are the norm. I'm trying to squeeze every last round out before the dark season sets in.
I live in Ypsi and I play year round.  Bundle up a little and head to the course.  Hit me up sometime and we can get a round in!
I would totally be all about hitting the ponds at lakeshore and such up with you, but I'm at school in North Dakota right now........ ya..... The snow just never melts.

yes. gotta get outside and stay connected with the earth. I get exited for winter changes, many good memories of cold-weather golf. Routes open up and so does the course. plus, i acclimatize faster if i golf often. so many benefits to year round golf


I had on a shirt, fleece, and an outer windbreaker today and it wasn't that bad. I was able to throw quite well and the sun kept everything toasty. You never know what you will get for winter here in Colorado. It could be 50 degrees or it could be below zero, windy and snowing.

As my friend said, the crappy weather here brings out the idiots, morons, and butt nuggets (I have a few other words for them). One group let us play through today and then started throwing at us. Idiots.

I work outside year round,so i might as well golf year round also.Loved it when i lived in Florida,but those August days were sometimes just as bad as Illinois in Feb.If you practice and play in adverse conditions your mental game gets a work out.Disc golf is just as much mental as it is physical.imo.


here in vegas it's JUST right for playing in the winter :)
MUST PLAY regardless of weather!
