Thunderstorm warning system at Wuppertal golf course

Wuppertal - The Bergisch-Land Golf Club has installed a thunderstorm warning system to protect staff and players. Golf star Martin Kaymer's Bundesliga club, founded in 1928, uses state-of-the-art technology to protect its facility.

This year's thunderstorm season started very early. The months of April, May and the beginning of June are characterised by an extremely high number of thunderstorms. The number of lightning strikes compared to the previous year has tripled.

The system receives live coordinate data of actual lightning strikes in the vicinity of the golf course with the highest accuracy and immediately relays this data as a warning, alarm and all-clear to people who are outdoors, depending on the location.

The warning and all-clear is fully automatic without human intervention and offers many advantages compared to manual thunderstorm warnings on golf courses.

The system is used on numerous sports fields, open-air swimming pools and leisure facilities, including in the German Football League.
