It’s hard to believe we’ve had more rain this year than last year…

This drone image of our golf course taken earlier this week shows the massive impact the dry summer has had on our course. It would be fair to describe our course as being somewhat “parched” or “as dry as a bone” at the minute:

Compare this to a similar drone image of our course towards the end of summer last year, the difference is incredible:

The simple reason for this is rainfall or lack of it. This year, between the 1st June and the end of August we’ve only seen 142mm of rainfall vs. 249mm over the same period last year. (and through September to date we’ve hardly seen any significant rainfall and the forecast for the next week is clear as well!)

However, the dry and warm summer followed on from the exact opposite at the start of this year when between 1st January and the end of March we saw 243mm of rain this year vs. 144mm over the same period last year. At times our course, and the whole of North Tyneside, felt like it was was sinking:

We also witnessed freak weather conditions during April and May with 96mm of rain this year vs. 22mm of rain last year. With the added bonus of April’s average monthly minimum temperature reaching only 0.7 degrees vs. a seasonal average of 4.4 degrees. Oh, and not forgetting the snow on May 6th that cancelled the Seniors Open :

It’s been quite a year. Fingers and everything else crossed that the weather returns to some sense of normality (whatever normality is against a backdrop of climate change) for the remainder of this year and next.
