National rounds-played were up 2.8% in January 2019 compared to the same period a year ago. It’s a positive start to the year after 11 of 12 months in 2018 were marked by year-over-year declines in play largely due to an increased incidence in unfavorable weather.
Last year’s weather picture wasn’t a pretty one, particularly for golf. Rounds-played in the U.S. were down, year-over-year, in 11 of 12 months in 2018, affected in large part by colder weather and heavier precipitation than normal during the busiest months for golf.
