High Temperatures at Leopard Creek Country Club

weather forecasts for Leopard Creek Country Club

Summer is in full swing, and a heatwave is currently blazing across Mpumalanga. So, just like a stove, we expect temperatures at Leopard Creek Country Club to heat up going into the weekend.

So, in a cutting-edge move, event officials at Leopard Creek Country Club had to bend the rules a little, particularly the dressing code. Therefore, golfers may wear shorts - a first for the European Tour. Thanks to the high temperatures forecasted for the Leopard Creek Country Club for the weekend. Midday temperatures are all forecasted at peak highs of 39°C – one of the hottest ever.            

Comments about temperatures at Leopard Creek

 

 

Thus, the governing body let the field at this week's Alfred Dunhill Championship at Leopard Creek officially give up the customary long trousers and dress comfortably in shorts instead. A decision praised as "the right thing to do" and a triumph for common sense by four-time major champion Ernie Els.

However, this relaxed dress code rule on shorts only applies to this week's Alfred Dunhill Championship at Leopard Creek tournament, the European Tour added.

Still on the subject of high temperatures at Leopard Creek, Thomas Bjorn, Europe's 2018 Ryder Cup skipper, said the tweaked dress code was a step in the right direction.
