More Good News (As Promised!)

July 26th, 2019

A full account of the Golf Industry Lunch, hosted annually at The Open Championship by SMS INC appears below but I would like all GBN readers to note some remarks made by Richard Payne, Director Sports Accounts, who said,Our usual barometer for ongoing performance is our Rounds Played Monitor – basically the ‘bums-on-seat’ measurement for courses around the country and I can report that Q1 2019 saw the best average rounds played for 7 years, an increase of over 30% against what was quite a catastrophic Q1 in 2018. Early indications would suggest that we are about 8% up in Q2.”

Read the article in full to get all the good news.
