National Golf Foundation’s nationwide course surveys show human and business impacts Coronavirus has had on golf

Published

on

National Golf Foundation

The National Golf Foundation has conducted multiple surveys to study both the human and business impacts that the Coronavirus (Covid-19) continues to have on the game of golf.

Amongst their findings, the NGF found that based on phone surveys for over 1,000 golf facilities, 74% of in-season golf courses remain open despite the current Coronavirus pandemic. (As of March 27)

National Golf Foundation

The organization also revealed that there is a temporary golf course closure in the following states – Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Massachusettes, Michigan, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Washington and Wisconsin.

National Golf Foundation

From a golf business standpoint, the NGF asked the ‘Top 100 businesses in golf’ how the ongoing spread of the Coronavirus had affected their business – with 23% saying severely, and 42% saying significantly.

National Golf Foundation

The consumer perspective has also changed dramatically due to the pandemic. The NGF’s findings show that while previously the situation had not had an impact on consumer’s golf equipment purchase decisions, the research now shows that the vast majority are now delaying any golf equipment spending.

Check out all the findings from the NGF’s research here at thengfq.com/covid-19.
