The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

I was fortunate enough to get out of lab early this morning and had an hour to kill after paying my bills and getting ready for work. I did what any other golfer would do, head over to MBD for a quick round from the reds.

An empty course with with a light fresh frost on it. The sun was out to counter the cold front that has been coming in. The puddles were all frozen as I walked down the fairways. It was truly a beautiful day to play a round. I know a few golfers that put away there discs till the spring but I don't understand it. I love playing winter rounds, and look forward to some snowfall.

If you have the time get over to "Brown Park!" I shot (-1) in 40 minutes from the reds.

Ya I don't get it either. Are winters are pretty brutal up here in Nor Cal. Why the other day. I almost decided to wear pants instead of shorts! ;)~
You know down here in SoCal its almost as tough! I had to put on my boots cause my feet might have gotten a little cold. What are those pants you speak of? Never heard of them!
Come up to Alaska and play...you'll be wearing more than boots and pants. I want to play all year around, winter doe limit things a bit with the cold sometimes. The biggest part is lack of daylight, the days are getting way shorter here now. We basically have from 10am to 4pm to play. During the summers we'll have over 20 hrs of daylight.
Danger Danger!! Nice to see you haven't given up for the season. I'm looking forward to the snow! I miss seeing it. Snow makes it so peaseful on the course. Should have called me I would have rolled out of bed to join you!
I first saw them when I bought a motorcycle...I thought why would any body walk around in them. Must be hot to wear. I asked the sales person about them. I was shocked! I asked him "must get hot walking around in these leather pants?" Turns out they make them in materials just like shorts and there are not just for motorcycling.....Hmmmm I guess I'll Google it.
Some day I'd like to go back up there. I took a trip up there several years back. Truly God's country. Man, you could pick out every tourist out there. We are all wearing 3 or 4 sweaters and jackets and the locals are in shorts and teeshirts! It was pretty funny.
This is my first year attempting winter golf and Its looking like 20 degrees is about the coldest Im willing to play around in. The one thing that I do like about winter golf is the wind. It has been really windy and that is the coolest thing, watching to see how the disc reacts to different wind conditions.
Over 20 degrees is not winter that is still spring/fall weather. Lol! Just messing with you!
my limit is probably 15* and windy or 0 w/o wind.. i will have to skip the real icy days. still playing at night too.
Playing in the winter is great. Their is no one on the course you play any game to any basket. my home course it is set up so you can play backwards, hard to do when lots of people. The practice you get from playing in the winter second to none. bundle up and buy a sled, come next spring you will be able to take the money from thoses who took winter off.
Winter golf is awesome! I am running a point series at my home course here in Ontario, Canada which starts this Sunday, and runs to Feb 28 when i will be holding my 1 day winter tournament. then its a couple of weeks off then we will be right back into the start of the Ontario D.G. tournament season... More and more people here are willing to brave the elements over the winter to feed their disc golf addictions lol
I love winter rounds. Just makes a bit more of a challenge. Its never bad as long as you are prepared for it. Brown Park is very nice. I wish it was a bit closer to my house though.
