Playing Golf in a Hot Climate

Playing in hot weather creates special stresses to the body that you must watch for like dehydration and fatigue and in some more severe cases, heat exhaustion. So to perform at your best in hot heat and avoid health risks while playing sports you need to take a few necessary precautions like the following tips or advice:

  • Book a Tee-time early in the morning
  • Wear a cap or hat
  • Apply sun block particularly on the ears, nape of neck, nose and other exposed areas
  • Wear light colored clothes made of a breathable fabric
  • Sunglasses are also suggested
  • Decent shorts and polo-shirts are accepted on courses throughout the region (Note: some courses will only allow a 3 button polo type shirt)
  • Bring a small towel to dry off sweat. Moisten a handkerchief is also a good way to cool down the face, hands and arms.
  • Bring 2 or 3 golf gloves and change every 3 or 4 holes
  • Drink plenty of water before and during the game
  • Avoid alcohol as it dehydrates the body
  • Take short rests during the game without delaying other groups
  • Don’t eat heavy meals on the course - eat fruits instead
  • Stay in the shade as much as possible when not hitting and carry an umbrella
  • Hit less balls in warming up
  • Get plenty of sleep the night before playing 18 holes
