Golf Benchmark Survey 2007 – second edition of the groundbreaking golf industry study was unveiled yesterday at the EGCOA conference in Holland.

The second edition of the groundbreaking Golf Benchmark Survey has been released with the first three Regional Reports – Northern Europe, Eastern Europe and Benelux – all now available for download from the website

In total, ten regional reports will be published between now and January, when a Comparative Summary Report will bring together the research covering Europe, the Middle East and Africa, in addition to emerging markets such as the Caribbean and India.

Publication of the three Regional Reports coincides with the presentation of the initial findings of the Golf Benchmark Survey given by Andrea Sartori, KPMG’s Partner, at the European Golf Course Owners Association (EGCOA) conference in Amsterdam. In the second year of the survey, the sample size has nearly doubled with close to 1,500 golf course owners and operators participating in the research.
