This report examines current demand and supply trends, and it presents initiatives from the various local golf associations aimed at helping the development of golf across Europe.
In 2015 our research demonstrated that the European golf market had started to stabilize in terms of numbers of registered golfers and golf courses in operation, compared to the trend of decline following the global economic downturn.
Though there are several key markets which have experienced a minor decline in demand, local golf associations have come up with a number of effective initiatives to identify and address how to attract and retain golfers, especially newcomers.
In contrast to our previous golf participation reports, this year we have put together the relevant data compiled directly from the respective golf associations across Europe. Hence, we would like to thank all of the golf associations who contributed to the preparation of this report. We would also like to thank Gary Player Design who have financially supported this research.
We hope that you find our results valuable. To read the complete findings, download the full report (PDF 6.2 MB).
