Weather-wise, the Valley is truly a golfer's paradise, one of very few places in the United States where the game can be played year-round. Situated along the same latitude as the Florida Keys, the area really has only two seasons ~ summer and "Maybe I'll bring a jacket," so golfers can look forward to 12 months of tee times. In fact, as far as the weather goes, there are probably more golfing days per year in the Rio Grande Valley than just about anyplace else in the nation. And even during the warmer days of summer, golfers can count on a cooling Gulf breeze to take the edge off the heat.
And golf in the Valley isn't just about the weather. This part of the world has always been known for its citrus; now we are becoming known for the quality of our golf facilities as well. Golf courses designed by some of the top course architects in the country exhibit a wide variety of styles, themes and levels of difficulty. Palm and mesquite tree-lined fairways guarded by lakes, sand traps and creeks-all encircled by the rich natural vegetation-stand ready to challenge golfers at any level of expertise.
The weather also provides another advantage for Valley golfers. The long sunny days and warm temperatures here are just about perfect for growing Bermuda grasses. Hybrid Bermuda grasses such as Tilway 419 have found their way onto some of the public courses, apparently no longer reserved exclusively for private clubs. Forming dense turf with medium-fine texture, it holds up well in high traffic areas and is probably the most rugged and wear tolerant of all the Bermudas.
