Golf weather rating explained

The golf weather rating is an objective evaluation of golfing weather conditions. The calculation takes specific weather conditions into account that are especially relevant for golfers.

The golf weather rating is calculated in Dutch summer time between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. (6-18.00 Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)). In winter this period starts and ends an hour earlier.

The ideal weather rating score is 10. Points are deducted when the weather negatively influences conditions. The minimum score is 1. The following weather conditions are taken into account when calculating the golf weather rating:

  • Precipitation
  • Wind strength
  • Sunshine hours
  • Fog and mist
  • Temperature
  • Risk of thunderstorms

The risk of thunderstorms and visibility have been given added value in the calculation of the golf weather rating.
