Weather impact on rounds played

May 13th, 2016

It doesn’t matter how well a golf facility is managed there is always one thing that is beyond anyone’s control and that, of course, is the weather.

The latest figures from SPORTS MARKETING SURVEYS INC. reveal that bad weather in the U.K. has been a major factor behind a 7.5% decline in rounds played in the first quarter of 2016 compared to the same period in 2015. On the other hand relatively good weather in the U.S. (especially in March) has been shown by Pellucid Corp to have been instrumental in achieving a significant increase of rounds played in the first quarter on the other side of the Atlantic. Of course across the full year these things tend to even out.
