Difficult September for US golf business

8.30am 28th November 2001 - Management Topics

Golf, like many other industries, saw a downturn in business. Golf Datatech reported that the number of rounds of golf played in the month of September in the United States declined by 1.5% and stands lower by 2.3% for the first nine months of the year as compared to 2000.

Texas felt the greatest crunch as it recorded a 10% drop. The sunshine state of Florida was the runner up with a decline of 8.4%.

Whether the tragic events of 11th September or the overall weakening economy reduced the interest in playing golf, the trend has been negative. Eight out of the nine months, according to Golf Datatech, have registered declines. The figures are available through NSGA.
