Among the inevitable contributing factors in golf is the weather. You can start your game during a sunny day and end up finishing the round with rain pouring all over the place. If there is one thing that would fit the best description of the weather these days, it would be “unpredictable”. But if you are prepared for the worst, then there is no need to worry.
Here are some things that must go with you when you hit the golf course:
- Make sure to take along some water proof golf clothing. As much as possible, it must be lightweight and breathable. It is also advisable that you secure a pair of water proof shoes to protect your feet from cold and from getting wet. If preferred, you can also bring along a spare glove and a rain hat.
- Always secure a golf umbrella even if it is not raining. Bear in mind that you also need to protect yourself as well as your golf equipments from too much exposure with the heat of the sun. During a rainy game, it is also important to keep your equipments dry.
- Try to adapt to the conditions when playing golf. Playing when there is rain is totally different from any normal golf conditions in the course. If you do not want that your game to be affected then make efforts on how to get the feel of the game when it is raining. The best way to do this is to practice when it is raining. But with the signs of thunder and lightning, stop right away.
- Stay positive as much as possible. The game of golf, regardless of the weather, if played with a positive outlook will surely be a lot of fun.
Playing golf during a rainy day would depend on your own preferences. If you are not comfortable with the wet grounds, then try another day when the weather is fine. The important thing in playing golf is that you are enjoying every moment when you are in the course.
