I'm here in Shanghai now. It's around 9C during daytime, and 2C during nite. Forecast that it'll get worst during CNY.

I don't even want to step outside to get food...

If you want to play winter golf, you need to face the cold temps. Wear lots of layers and get winter golf gloves.
As long as there is no snow on the ground, most of the golf courses will be open.
In the northeast, we tee off temps will be in the mid 30s. When we finish, the temps will be below freezing.
It goes back to, how bad do you want to play?

Go try a 9h golf course called Hong Qiao Golf Club, i was in SHA this month and played there, it was cold, around 4degrees but if you wear thermal skins, can still play

if you need more SHA golf details, pm me...

Golf courses will open and its an experience to play in winter with the wind blowing and CO2 coming out from your mouth...

make sure you stretch properly before the game
