Rounds of Golf Up 15% in Metro Detroit

Dbusiness, a Detroit Business publication reports that rounds of golf are up 15% in the first half of the year.

Golf rounds played in metro Detroit for the first half of the year increased nearly 15 percent when compared to the first six months of 2014, says a report released by PGA PerformanceTrak, a golf data collection service from The PGA of America.

“Given the affordability of public golf at area golf courses and improved weather conditions over 2014, it’s an encouraging trend to see consumers in the Detroit market and nationwide teeing-it-up more often this year and purchasing golf merchandise and food and beverages at golf facilities,” says Paul Metzler, senior director of global and corporate insights for The PGA of America.

It is also my impression that there are more people on the courses this summer.
