Many golfers from the Seattle, WA area have a rule called "embrace the rain" since it's very likely people will encounter rain so rather than stop all life, you just go do. There are good reasons why golfers play golf after heavy rain, here's my best list why:
- It's unlikely that golfers will encounter more rain.
- Golfers seldom need tee times after heavy rains
- Golfers often have the golf course to themselves after heavy rains.
- If golfers play after heavy rain often enough, it might mean they can justify the purchase of an EZGO Mud Mudding Golfcar Golfcart (check out the video).
- With lots of casual water on the golf course, golfers can easily clean their golf clubs just by dipping the golf club head in the puddles.
- Many golf courses impose the "cart path only rule" meaning golfers must walk out to their golf ball, thereby getting much more exercise.
- Golfers get a free lift onto a nicer lie out of casual water.
- Golfers get to practice a different style of hitting off wet fairways with Ben Hogan.
- Golfers get to practice a different type of chipping; check out how to hit out of muddy lies 1 and out of muddy lies 2 on the videos. One thing golfers should remember is to not lift their head in an attempt to avoid getting muddy.
- Golfers get a free lift out of bunkers filled with water. If the bunker is filled with wet sand,

- Golf after heavy rain is good practice for the Orlando Savage Race.
