The stats are just out for the Golf Apparel market based on August retail sales. Great to see Golf Apparel sales for the month were up +5.3% and up +8.8% YTD thru August.
It was a big month for men’s shirts: the largest Golf Apparel category – with sales +9%
Said Golf Datatech co-founder, John Kryznowek, “Overall golf apparel sales remained robust thru August, with both the Green Grass and the Off Course Specialty channels gaining vs. year ago. And compared to 2019, total Golf Apparel sales are up close to 60%, showing just how far ahead the industry is vs. the pre pandemic period. Good weather during August was certainly very helpful, as men’s shirts and total headwear sales, the largest and second largest categories in shop, were up double digits combined.”
