A changing golf travel marketplace inspired Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday’s recent transformation into a new entity called Golf Tourism Solutions. Here’s Bill Golden’s vision for the company.
Golf is a game perfectly suited to corporate sponsorship. The game’s biggest outside investors — non-endemics like Rolex, AT&T, FedEx, Charles Schwab and Mastercard — devote millions of dollars in golf sponsorship every year.
A month after the release of the new Golf Industry Report, the NGF has issued the 2018 editions of Golf Participation in the U.S. and Golf Facilities in the U.S. are now available for download.
The National Golf Foundation’s Golf Industry Report consolidates many of the game’s key data points in a single publication and is intended to provide the most holistic view of the business of golf and the health of the game to stakeholders and the media.
In some ways, golf looks much as it did 20 to 25 years ago. The game is also different in many respects and participation is evolving. NGF President Joe Beditz weighs in on the changing face of golf, Millennials in the sport and generational risk.
