What’s The Hottest Round You’ve Ever Played?

Too Hot Golf Golf?Now this Caveman doesn’t necessarily believe in global warming, but over the past few weeks, the Eastern Seaboard of the US has been held hostage under what is being described as a vicious heat wave. Temperatures have hit record highs have people have been warned to stay inside.

I am not one for letting the weather keep me off the green. This past weekend, however, with the high humidity and heat indexes of 115˚F and higher, I couldn’t take it. No amount of water would have been able to keep me hydrated enough to enjoy my round.
While I tried to stay in cool in my air conditioned cave (that’s right, this caveman has electricity) I began searching for the hottest golf course in the world.

Alice Spring Golf Club in Northern Territory Australia took the cake. Temperatures there average 115˚F but can reach up over 130˚F. Then take into account the course layout and the blistering winds which add more confusion than relief from the heat, accuracy is a must. Shooting straight with sweat dripping into your eyes sounds not only difficult, but down right unpleasant.

What’s the hottest round of golf you have ever played?
