Long johns and a bunch of extra gloves. If it is really wet I will change out every few holes.

Those little had warmers are a nice thing to keep in your pocket as well.

A flask of burbon nerver hurt either. At least it takes the edge off of hitting a cold ball.
Yeah I like the flask idea!
Thanks to GB for the great giveaways. Nike x3x wedge

Under Armour base layer, mid weight fleece, topped of by a wind shirt or wind vest. Towards the end of November I'll start using gloves on both hands. Mizuno and FootJoy make reasonably priced winter gloves. Both Under Armour or Jockey make great base layer bottoms and I'll usually skip the normal golf pants and go with wind pants. And the flask is a necessity up here...

On those extra chilly days, I use ear muffs to keep my head warm.
I still have a golf hat on, but the ear muffs go over the hat nicely, and I still have easy access to my ball marker.

I'm in Colorado Springs, and for the past 8+ years, have played golf at least once every month of the year. We get snow, but with the low humidity, it generally doesn't stay long.

I know a lot of places frown on it, but during the winter (only) I wear jeans to stay warm. I use a long sleeve 'performance' shirt under a polo, and usually an insulated pull-over. That keeps me plenty warm as long as the sun is shining and the wind is down.

The coldest I ever played in was 26 degrees, yes, it was cold-ish, but no wind and sunny made it very tolerable. By the 4th hole, it was in low 40's and very enjoyable.

As others said, under armor is great. It fits snug to the body and allows you to layer on top of it without adding a bunch of bulk. Getting an afternoon tee time will help secure part of the warmest part of the day, too, so it won't be quite as chilly.
I have UA under clothing for those cold days.
