Yearly Climate

November 12, 2012
Area Information
Winter: December—Early February
Many more good weather days than bad. Most courses wide open and uncrowded. Ideal for the flexible traveler looking for great values. Interesting visual contrast between over-seeded green fairways and dormant rough Bermuda. Easier to book that “ideal” tee time.


44.9° – 45.6° F   7.2° – 7.5° C, Least Expensive, Readily Available Tee Times


Early Spring: February—Mid-March
Great opportunity to get a jump on the season with cool but mostly clear weather. Still a good idea to call well in advance of arrival (minimum of 2 months) to insure your favorite tee time.


45.6° – 51.8° F   7.5°-11.0° C, Moderate Expense, Moderate Availability


Spring: Mid-March—Mid-May
What golf is all about. Dogwoods, azaleas in bloom, Carolina blue skies, crisp clean air. Make your reservations well in advance for weekend play to insure your course selections. Weekdays offer greater availability.


51.8° – 70.0° F   11.0°-21.1° C, Most Expensive, Least Availability


Late Spring: Mid-May—Mid-June
Some good golf deals to be had! Ideal weather with a few hot days mixed in and you’ll save money compared to the spring season. Make sure you call well in advance – especially if you’re playing 36 holes a day.


70.0° – 75.1° F   21.1°-23.9° C, Moderate Expense, Moderate Availability


Summer: Mid-June—September
Good value, good conditions. Bermuda fairways are fully grown in. Lots of time to play early and late to avoid mid-day heat. Still need to plan in advance for prime weekend times.


75.1° – 78.9° F   23.9°-26.0° C, Moderate Expense, Moderate Availability


Fall: September—Mid-November
Many locals call it their favorite season. Great conditions. Less crowded. Slightly better value than the Spring. With pine trees, no troublesome leaves in the fairways and rough. Many weekends will fill up quickly.


51.8° – 72.3° F   11.1°-23.3° C, Most Expensive, Least Availability


Late Fall: Mid-November—December
Grab a sweater and enjoy less crowded conditions and usually sparkling clear days. Occasional frost may delay your morning start time, but it’s well worth the wait! Some weekends preferred times will fill up quickly, so don’t delay calling.


51.9° – 64.0° F   11.1°-17.8° C, Moderate Expense, Moderate Availability
