Northern California in October: Too cold to wear shorts in the morning??

Specifically to play golf?

I'll have to play real early, like 6-7 am. Need to wear pants/long underwear on course? Looking at Bodega Bay and Monterey.

I would absolutely wear underpants. Remember what your mother always said?

Long underwear - no. Long pants, yes. Bring a windbreaker too.

The key word to remember is "layer." You will need to remember this for anything, anytime, anywhere you are on the California coast. Wear short sleeved shirt with a sweater over it, long pants and a windbreaker.Then you can ditch the windbreaker and sweater if the sun comes out. At that time of the morning, I can't believe it would be over 60 degrees... probably less.

I second moneygirl & jcorrea... LAYERS! More than likely, you'll at least start your game with fog. Skip the long underwear, wear long pants, short sleeve shirt, light jacket or sweatshirt. Bring shorts, but leave them in the car for a quick change after your game when the weather clears. It can still get pretty toasty in October... OK, not compared to Hawaii! The evenings get much cooler around halloween. Aloha! Wish I was there!
