This is a good thread to revive, I love weather stories.
As I posted elsewhere here at the FJC it was near -30 the other day with the windchill, there's no golfing :)
BUT the last few days have been near 50 and a few courses are open year round if conditions permit. However I have not been able to get out.
The worst for me was an after work league last summer. I'm subbing this particular week for one of the guys and its a bit rainy. No big deal. It's rather warm so I'm just getting wet as gearing up would've made me way too hot. We're around the 4th hole and fairly far from the clubhouse.
The rain intensifies and we go on with our round. For some reason I'm playing lights out (for me). Misjudge a putt or two, but otherwise I'm playing very well. The rain is coming down sideways at this point and you can't see the green from the tee box. But we're having a good time.
My partner and I happen to be alone as the other half of our foursome never showed up so we're just cruising around the course getting our 9 in. At one point with no one in front of us or behind us we stop in a patch of trees (cart path happened to go through them). We stopped in order to let the rain hopefully subside a bit.
We wait about 10 minutes and still dont see anyone and we start wondering if they blew the lightning horn and we never heard it. The rain lets up and we finish our round (we never did see any lightning nearby, we saw one strike far off in the distance). I shoot one of my best 9's of the year in the process.
We get back to the clubhouse and meet up with some of the others who had finished and they did indeed confirm that the lightning horn sounded. Apparently my partner and I were flirting with disaster and never knew it (it seems the course needs to work on the volume of their airhorn - we brought that up with them).
