Golf Course Altitude Club Range Calculator


After many years of research and testing, we have developed a mathematical model for the flight of a golf ball. We use this model to predict the flight based on initial golf ball parameters such as speed, launch angle, spin along with environmental conditions such as air temperature, air pressure, humidity, etc.

I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce you to a new tool that is sure to improve your golfers’ scores. It’s a calculator that takes a golfer’s golf club ranges at any temperature and elevation and converts them to the corresponding ranges at different temperatures and elevations.

Given that you manage a golf course at a significant elevation, just think of the advantages of offering your players this tool which takes the guess work out club selection. What do you currently tell your visiting golfers about how much more club to hit? ½ a club? 1 club? More?

After 15 years of researching golf ball trajectories, I’ve developed an accurate computer model predicts golf ball distances and trajectories hit with different clubs. I use it in my errant golf ball analysis work which involves recommendations to golf courses and driving ranges about containment net heights. I’ve also been involved in numerous litigations involving golf ball damage.

The elevation tool consists of a spreadsheet where one enters the ranges of the golfer’s different clubs along with temperature and elevation of the home course as well as the new course (which might be yours). The information could be entered by an employee in the pro shop and printed out for the customer. Or, the tool could be sent to the customer via email for them to do themselves.

The spreadsheet can be uniquely branded with your own photographs, advertisements and logos. What a great way of introducing new players to your course!

The spreadsheet is being offered to golf courses for unlimited use with their members and/or guests. The annual fee is $299 US. The cost per member is extremely low. With a 500 member club, the cost is 50 cents each. For a golf course with mainly green fee players, the cost is even less. Consider a course which has a yearly play of 20 000 rounds. The cost of the elevation tool would be only 2 cents per round.

Facts about golf ball flights at higher elevations.

1. Air is less dense at higher elevations.

2. Since air density is less, there is less air drag on a golf ball and less air lift.

3. Flight time for golf balls is less. Golf balls don't fly as high.

4. High lofted clubs (i.e. short irons) will have the greatest difference in range at higher elevations.

5. Tee shots (with a Driver) will fly lower and won't fly signficantly farther, but they will run farther.

6. One might get more distance from a 3-wood at high elevation than a Driver.
