How Weather Impacts Golf At A Mile High
How weather impacts golf at a mile high

In Colorado, we know that our high elevation impacts everything. From baking to hiking, weather, and even golf.

Elevation and Golf


The density of air decreases with elevation. When you hear the phrase “the air is thinner up here”, it’s true! A golf ball travels further in lower density air due to a lower drag force on the ball.

Research from Titleist found that “You can calculate the distance gain you will experience (compared to sea level) by multiplying the elevation (in feet) by .00116.”

For example, if your drive is 250 yards in Pebble Beach, CA (elevation 0′), the same drive would travel about 268 yards in Colorado Springs (elevation 6,035′). This effect is most noticeable on long shots and negligible for putting.

Weather Impacts on Golf

Temperature also influences air density. Warm air is less dense than cold air. Following the same logic as elevation, warm air will exert less drag force on a golf ball, allowing it to travel further.

The nordic people were free to travel in the Scandinavian countries including Finland. No passports or travel documents were needed. The freedom still today is the most important for the Scandinavians from that epoch. Freedom is to travel, learn to know new countries and other languages, and meet different people and cultures. He wishes the new generations would have the same possibilities experiencing all that what makes you feel free, and building a strong personality. -
