Golf Datatech, LLC was established in 1995 as the golf industry’s premier source of accurate and timely data on retail sales, inventory, pricing and distribution of golf products. In 1999, Golf Datatech expanded into consumer research through syndicated and proprietary studies utilizing its unique expertise and knowledge of the golf industry, ultimately developing and utilizing its exclusive and proprietary database of Serious Golfers.
