Weather Tips for Golfers in Vicksburg

Golfing-in-Vicksburg-MSNo matter what time of year it is, you’re always welcome at Vicksburg golf courses. Whether you’re visiting in the winter, spring, summer or fall, you’re likely to stumble upon ideal conditions for a day on the green. Even so, it’s always good practice to check the forecast before you go. Below, Visit Vicksburg shares some weather tips to help golfers make the most of their trip.

Ideal Weather for Golfing

In a perfect world, every golf day would have comfortable temperatures, low humidity and just a slight breeze. Here in Vicksburg, there’s a very good chance you’ll get just that thanks to the beautiful Southern climate. In the fall, the weather is typically warm and pleasant with low precipitation. While the temperatures can rise into the 100s in the summer, this can be appealing for anyone who loves to soak up the sun. And in the winter, the average temperatures usually hover between 50 and 60 degrees – nothing a jacket and a few light layers can’t handle.

Weather to Watch Out For 

Unfortunately, not every day can be perfect. If the wind is too strong, it can seriously throw you off your game. When it’s too hot, you might be very uncomfortable and run the risk of dehydration. And if there are storm clouds rolling in, you’ll have to clear out sooner than you might have expected.

That’s because lightning is very dangerous to golfers. You, your metal clubs, metal golf cart and metal spikes are all potential targets. So if it looks like it could storm today, you might want to rethink your plans. In addition to Golf Weather and national weather stations, be sure to check out these local weather apps for hourly updates, severe weather alerts and live radar footage.

You can also sign up for Code Red Weather Warning Alerts for the city of Vicksburg. Plus, most club facilities usually have a storm warning system and can also be valuable resources for weather insights. If you’re new to the area or concerned about the weather, stop by to chat with the attendees.

Vicksburg Golf Courses

Now that you know which weather conditions to look for and which to avoid, it’s time to select your course. There are two 18-hole courses located in the Vicksburg area for you to choose from: Clear Creek Golf Club and Vicksburg Country Club.

Call ahead to make sure they have the accommodations you prefer, so that your day on the links goes without a hitch. If you have questions about weather or things to do in Vicksburg – even on gloomy days – reach out to Visit Vicksburg and we’ll be happy to help.
