More About Golf’s Surge In Participation

May 28th, 2021

Today we are pleased to publish more details about the huge increase in golf participation that has taken place over the past few months.

SMS director Richard Payne comments, “Rounds played is only one part of the story. We now know that the growth wasn’t only down to existing golfers playing more, but also significantly boosted by new players coming into the sport. More people on driving ranges, par 3s and full-length courses is good for the whole game, from course operators to manufacturers to retailers, events and broadcasters.”

Please see below for today’s selection of the top golf business news stories from around the world. Be safe, healthy and well-informed.
