Vortex Rain Check

Forecast: March 2024

Vortex Rain Insurance reports that historical comps are showing the current El Nino weather pattern will start to dissipate as the golf season begins to ramp up


Based on the historical comp years of 1998, 2010 and 2016, the expectation is that the current El Nino weather pattern will weaken and its effects will start to dissipate as golf season begins to ramp up in some corners of the country this March. 

> Look for wetter weather all around. Anticipate a rainy start to the spring season with higher than average rainfall totals throughout most of the country. 

> Clubs on the Gulf Coast, in the Ohio and Mississippi valleys, Texas and the Mid-South should all brace for wetter than average conditions, fewer playable days and somewhat of a slow start to the season. 

> The same applies for golf facilities on the West Coast and in the Pacific Northwest. Those same weather conditions will likely bring more rainfall, which will travel into the Great Lakes region. 

> The best chance for below normal rainfall totals is centered in the Mid-Atlantic region. For clubs that will be open for play in these markets in March, it is hopeful this pattern will lead to a few more playable days.
