The golf season is starting to kick into full swing in most regions of the country, despite the occasional fits and starts in some colder climates.
Hardcore golfers might not have ever put their clubs away, while others are getting theirs out of storage.
So, what percentage of occasional golfers has their own set of golf clubs?
Recent NGF research shows that approximately 88% of occasional golfers – both adults and children who play between 1 and 7 rounds a year – have their own golf clubs.
For the occasional round, the other 12% of this group typically either rents clubs or borrows a set from family members, friends or colleagues.
