Golf Courses & Country Clubs in the US

Over the five years to 2016, the Golf Courses and Country Clubs industry has struggled to make par due to waning interest in the sport among all but its eldest target demographics.Overambitious development resulted in some course closures and waning revenue over the five years to 2016, but the industry's long-term challenges concern how it will broaden the sport's appeal to new players. Despite a few inconsistent years, the Golf Courses and Country Clubs industry is projected to return to moderate growth due to higher corporate profit, rising disposable income and increased consumer sentiment. These factors will likely stimulate demand for industry clubs as people return to golf courses and country clubs.

This industry is primarily engaged in operating golf courses and country clubs that have dining and recreational facilities. These establishments typically provide food and beverage services, equipment rental services and golf instruction. Golf courses can be public, private, semiprivate or an extension of a private country club. This industry excludes golf driving ranges, miniature golf courses and resorts and hotels that have on-site golf courses.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
