GOLF GETS A BOOST

August 8, 2020

Golf club memberships across the country have increased by 4.1% since the end of June 2019, with a recent spike as the country came out of isolation. June 2020 has seen a significant increase in rounds played compared to June 2019 despite an additional weekend in the month of June last year. Overall there has been an 11.1% increase in rounds played this year. What is great news for the game is that for the first time in 10 years, junior membership and rounds played by young people has substantially increased. Junior membership has increased 13% and rounds played being up by 12%. Since NZ Golf introduced the casual player category, 120,000 players have registered – the challenge now is to convert these casual players into club members at some point, to boost the 105,000 golfers that are currently golf club members.
