Our weather is different
John's or Trinity: Our
forecast is generated at our nearest weather
station, which is in Bonavista. Because our resort is located
between two large hill ranges and is on the more sheltered side of
the peninsula, our weather is somewhat unique to the region. People
often make the mistaken assumption that poor weather in St. John's,
Clarenville, Bonavista, or Trinity means that we have poor
weather as well. Yet, it is quite often the case that the
weather here is nice even when it is poor in the areas surrounding
As the locals say:
"Bonavista and Trinity may be so fogged-in that you can't
find them on the map, but it'll still be sunny in
Our weather is not like the Arctic:
Another misconception that tourists have about our weather is
that it is cold because Newfoundland appears so far north on the
map. In reality, the maps are misleading because Newfoundland is further south than much of the rest of Canada.
In fact, The View Golf Resort is
located further south than Victoria, BC! Since it is an island, the weather is moderated
greatly by the ocean. It is true that the summer heat rarely
exceeds 30°C, but it usually stays in
the comfortable range of 15°C to 25°C.
In the winter, it rarely drops below -15°C
and usually stays between +5°C and
-10°C. While some areas are more
prone to rain, drizzle, and fog, this is not true of the inland
areas or sheltered bays like the one The View Golf Resort resides
