Golfing in the rain may provide some unpleasant, but not impossible, conditions. For those who truly can't wait to get out on the course, there are ways to stay safe and keep your game going in the event of rain.
Rain can make for challenging game play. With the ground wet, the ball won't roll as far, and the way it rolls can be affected as well. Make sure you take some time to take a few practice strokes before you start, so you can see the differences in how your ball moves and gauge how to adjust your game. Rainy conditions can also affect visibility, so make sure you are really aware of where the sand traps and water hazards are located so you don't end up stuck.
Using rain gear, like umbrellas and water-proof coats, will help keep you more comfortable so you can continue to play. Keep extra towels somewhere they won't get wet, and make sure your clubs are well-covered when they aren't in use.
